Vampire Diaries Extended Preview

vampdiariespic.jpg

You know how I love vampires. So, of course, I couldn’t miss this opportunity to post the trailer for the new CW production, Vampire Diaries, due out this fall.

Based on the books by L.J. Smith, the Vampire Diaries tells the story of beautiful and popular high school student, Elena.

As the school year begins, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another.

But Stefan is a centuries-old vampire, struggling to live peacefully among humans and his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is a violent and brutal vampire. Now these two vampire brothers are battling for Elena’s soul…and possibly the souls of the whole town of Mystic Falls, Virginia.

Heavy Sigh. What girl wouldn’t want two good-looking vampires fighting for her soul? Even if one is a little…ok, a lot, naughty, eh?

Can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one! Vampire Diaries will air on Thursdays, starting September 10th, along with Supernatural…guess I’ll have to stake out two full hours of TV time.

What NOT to do with Costumes

There are many fun things you can do with costumes…dressing as your dead mother shouldn’t be one of them. Especially if you plan to commit grand larceny, forgery and conspiracy while you’re at it.

And yet, a New York man is accused of doing just that.

Officials say Thomas Prusik-Parkin donned a wig, heavy make-up and old-fashioned dresses and used a cane to portray his mother, Irene, who died in 2003 at the age of 73. The man posed as his mother for six years, to steal approximately $115,000 in benefits.

Parkin made sure his mother’s death wouldn’t be accurately recorded, giving the wrong Social Security information to the funeral director, so he could collect $700 a month in Social Security in her name (in addition to his own disability checks).

He is also accused of posing as his mother to file for bankruptcy and collect $39,000 in city subsidies to help pay rent on an apartment.

Parkin even enlisted a close friend to pose as Irene’s nephew, “helping” the “ailing aunt” get around town, cash government checks and assist in property transactions.

Pac Man Costume Fashion

Pac Man Costume Fashion

Here’s a look at an unusual line of fashion from designer Giles Deacon. In a tribute to the popular 80′s video game, his models walk the runway wearing Pac Man clothing and helmets. Cool! And very bizarre.

Bettie Page Mermaid Costume

Bettie Page Mermaid Costume

I just spied this Bettie Page costume, new for Halloween this year. The Submariner Bettie Page! Not bad at all. It does look sexy, but I’m not sure how comfortable it would be to walk around in.

There are so many Bettie Page fans, I’m sure this costume will sell very well this Halloween.

Here’s a few artist renderings of Bettie Page as a mermaid. Very, very cool!

This photo is great. Skeletor sings karaoke while drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon out of a straw!

Taken during last weekend’s Wizard World Philly. Apparently this guy is a local and regulary appears in costume to sing karaoke. Awesome!

I stumbled onto this list of Strange Children’s costumes. The costumes are definitely strange. I think “Alien Baby” wins the prize, LOL.
