Here Are the Hottest Halloween Costumes of 2018

Flossing is gonna be huge this Halloween. (Calm down, dentists. Your dreams aren’t coming true.)

Fortnite, the video game that has captivated players and become the bane of professional baseball and hockey teams, looks set to dominate Halloween 2018. So, be prepared to hand out candy to all manner of Skull Troopers, Brite Bombers, and Bunny Brawlers.

Though Halloween is still well over a month away, Fortnite costumes are among the most popular searches for shoppers on eBay. The outfits are currently #2 on the site’s trend list after topping it Thursday. And interest is continuing to grow.

Over on Amazon, meanwhile, princesses, and T-Rexes are leading demand, so far. Among kids’ costumes, a Frozen-inspired dress and inflatable T-Rex costume are the two most popular items.

T-Rex costumes are just as popular for men and women, as they were in 2017, as well. (Lederhosen and Dirndl dresses are also popular among adults, but those tend to spike before Oktoberfest and typically see interest dwindle before Halloween.)

Halloween costumes are big business for both manufacturers and companies that license their characters. In 2017, Americans were spent an estimated $ 9.1 billion on the holiday. One study found that the average per person Halloween spending ranged from $ 169 to $ 183.

Hair Freezing Contest Is Hottest Thing In The Yukon Right Now

Things are pretty chill in Whitehorse, Yukon, in February, where the average temperature rarely exceeds 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

But things can still get heated, thanks to a chilling hair-freezing competition.

The Takhini Hot Pools, which has held the very cool contest every February since 2011, invites hot spring visitors to submit their best frozen hair photos in hopes of winning a first prize of $ 700 in cold hard cash.

Stay frosty ☃ ❄️♨️ #hotsprings #takhinihotsprings #exploreyukon

A post shared by Brett Elliot (@btelliot) on

The Hot Pools have offered some tips on how to get that freshly frozen look. 

First, hair freezing is best when done in temperatures -20 Fahrenheit or colder. Any warmer and your hair may take too long to freeze.

Wet your head in the hot springs. Then allow the cold air to freeze your hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes.

People with very long hair should lay it down on the sides of the pool so it freezes in single, long strands.

Keep your ears warm by dipping them into the hot springs, but make sure not to get your hair wet ― that defeats the hair freezing.

It is beyond what I expected #takhinihotsprings #whitehorse #yukon #frozenhair #vacation #ilovehere

A post shared by Jeongeun Kim (@mywayanna) on

When the hair begins to freeze, mold it into the shape you want.

#meanwhileincanada #HairFreezingContest #thosecrazycanucks #stuffedbeaver #stuffedbeaverbondi

A post shared by The Stuffed Beaver (@thestuffedbeaverbondi) on

The Hot Pools will announce the official winner in March.

Blowtorch Barber Is Hottest Thing In Gaza

In Ramadan Odwan’s barbershop in Gaza, hair isn’t just blow-dried, it’s blowtorch-dried.

“People have gone crazy about it, many people are curious to go through the experience and they are not afraid,” he told Reuters. “People here love adventures.”

Odwan, 37, is not the first stylist in the world to use flame to straighten hair, but his craft is unique in the Gaza Strip.

In his salon in the southern Gaza town of Rafah, Odwan applied what he described as a protective liquid coating to a customer’s hair – he declined to disclose its contents – before aiming for the head and pressing the button on a small blowtorch.

“I control how long I apply fire, I keep it on and off for 10 seconds or 15 seconds. It is completely safe and I have not encountered any accident since I started it two months ago,” Odwan added.

Odwan charges 20 shekels ($ 5.20) for a haircut and fire-straightening.

A barber for the past 18 years, he said part of the reason he uses the technique is to show that Palestinian barbers are as “professional as those out there around the world”.

The 17 Hottest Wedding Trends for 2017

By Debra Witt for Bridal Guide

The new year brings new ideas for all things wedding, from invitations to flowers, cocktails to cake…and more!

1. Vintage glamour (with a twist). Picture an industrial warehouse decked out with ornate, over-the-top centerpieces and set aglow with strands of twinkling lights and candles. You get the picture: a whimsical mash-up of old and new.

Related: 50 Ideas for a Vintage-Inspired Wedding

2. Encore metallics. Brides continue to embrace copper, rose gold, and pewter because they’re so versatile, says Sara Fried, of Fete Nashville. Not only do they work with other colors for a look that’s at once relaxed and fun, they are ideal tones for a black-tie evening. Pro tip: “Use shine strategically,” says Sarah Chancey, founder of Chancey Charm Weddings, in Atlanta and 11 other cities. “Metallic linens on every table is too much: better to save the shine for the head and display tables.”

3. Neutral territory. From charcoal to blue-greys, or grey-browns, “This color palette is perfect for the bride who wants to achieve a classic, sophisticated feel that won’t seem dated or look too trendy in years to come,” says Michelle Cousins, the planning guru behind Michelle Leo Events in Utah.

Related: 200+ Color Combinations for Your Wedding

4. Surprise settings. Today’s couples want a wedding that will blow their guests away, and one of the key elements to an unforgettable event is the choice of venue. “Any place with a large plot of land or a distinct building — or both — will allow couples to really personalize their wedding and help them tell their unique story,” says Amy Cagginello, founder of Amy Champagne Events in Connecticut.

5. Swoon-worthy blooms. Peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias and other “soft-petal” blooms are the top-requested flowers from coast to coast — and for good reason. “They epitomize romance,” says Zoe Gallina, creative director of Botanica international Floral Design in Florida. Peonies, in particular are in high demand, with one planner noting that some brides will time their weddings to take place when peonies are in peak season. Loose rose petals, used as a “garland” or runner atop tables or scattered among floating candles, are another trend that’s coming on strong.

Related: 50 Fairy Tale Floral Arrangements

6. Sophisticated whimsy. At the other end of the trend spectrum, gallina says flowering plants like king- and pink-ice protea, along with assorted bold tropical blooms and small potted plants, lend a dose of stateliness for brides who want arrangements that feel natural and organic — yet elegant.

Related: 50 Offbeat Wedding Ideas for the Non-Traditional Bride

7. Paper form follows fashion. “Wedding invitation styles often mimic what’s happening in fashion and home decor,” says Jill Ryder of Shindig Bespoke, a custom design studio based in new York City and Philadelphia. For 2017 that means mixing two patterns, like stripes and florals, on the backs of cards or on envelope liners, as well as textured paper.

Related: Invitations by Style: Find the Right Fit for Your Wedding

8. Handcrafted. “Hand calligraphy is such a strong trend that it’s not uncommon for brides and grooms to learn how to do it themselves,” says Chancey. Fortunately for those with a less steady hand, sites like minted and Wedding Paper Divas feature a wide range of invitation suites that look hand-calligraphed.

9. Local specialties. With more couples infusing pride of location in their hometown celebrations, local flavors are taking the spotlight. For example, in Utah, buffalo is often featured as both a main course and as an appetizer, says Cousins. In Vermont, maple flavoring can make several appearances in the menu. Gulf shrimp is on display in various parts of the South, and so on. (The trend carries over to drinks.) “It’s an extension of the farm-to-table trend that popped up a few years ago,” says Chancey, “but even more fun for the guests.”

10. Paired up. Wine-and-cheese pairings have become a familiar site at cocktail receptions, but the idea of matching different foods with different drinks is being carried over to other types of beverages and appetizers, says Hall. “It elevates the guest experience by keeping folks active and engaged,” she says. Some duets to consider: wine and pasta, cake and craft beer, margaritas and guacamole, or for a wedding brunch, try mimosas and pastries.

Related: 50 Fun Menu Innovations for Your Reception

11. What’s old is new again. In 2017, bartenders and mixologists are moving away from the very sweet and/or colorful pours in favor of old-time classics, including the moscow mule, a Pimm’s Cup, and the sidecar.

12. Sugar high. Tall cakes that look as if they leapt off the pages of your mother’s wedding album are suddenly in vogue. “After the last few years of pies, cake pops, doughnuts, and cupcakes, there’s been a strong shift back to tiered wedding cakes,” says Bosse. “There’s something nostalgic to people about wedding cake.” As for the height aspect of the trend, she says tall cakes lend visual interest to a dessert table and allow for some very creative artistry — anything from hand painting to jeweled accents.

Related: 101 Amazing Wedding Cakes

13. Sweet satisfaction. S’mores stations and candy bars have been around for a few years, but one new dessert trend is to forgo a formal dessert course and instead serve guests passed desserts and/or set up several grazing dessert stations so guests can mingle and sample, “just like cocktail hour,” says Cagginello. “It keeps the energy going.”

14. Snap and chat. Sara Fried says her clients are loving the newest takes on the traditional photo booth. “There’s the slo-mo booth, the animated GIF booth, the flip-book booth and others,” she says. “All are amazing ways to keep guests fully entertained.” Most booths will text the content directly to smartphones, so your friends can share immediately on social media — and you get copies of everything at the end of the night.

15. Cut and share. Instagram video edits are an increasingly popular package option from videographers, says Lisa Ashley, owner and curator of the Wedding Artists Collective, a specialty group of wedding photographers and videographers. These 60- to 90-second films “have the look and feel of a cinematic trailer and are wonderful representations of the day,” she says.

16. Reaching new heights. Couples can’t get enough of the unique perspectives offered by drone technology for both videos and aerial stills, and pros are following suit, offering packages that include drone footage as an add-on option. Poised for take-off: professional-quality, user-friendly drones for non-pros (and perhaps a wedding guest), such as EHang Ghostdrone 2.0, which is controlled by your smartphone via the EHang Play mobile app.

Related: 30 Easy Ways to Ensure That You’ll Love Your Wedding Photos

17. Setting a mood. Lounge areas have been an important decor element at wedding cocktail hours for years, but as after-parties come into fashion wedding pros find themselves setting up more lounge-style seating vignettes closer to the dance floor. “We’ll also change the lighting so the room or tent has more of a club feel,” says Cousins.

The 10 Hottest Trends For Spring Weddings

Pretty pastels, sky-high cakes, bold brows and gold foil paper are all trending for spring. Here’s how to make them yours.

By Lauren Kay for TheKnot.com

Bold Brows and Colored Nails

2015-05-20-1432135472-1282332-photo1.jpg
Agape Moments

A well-shaped brow can totally transform your best features, so don’t be tempted to over-tweeze! Instead, blend over-plucked or sparse areas with a brow pencil in a matching shade (try to stick with a hue that’s one to two shades from your natural hair color). Pair with a pale pink lip for a stunning, natural bridal look. And while you’re at it, add just a little intensity to that mani. Bridal nails are getting a subtle wash of color thanks to some pastel-hued polishes in shades of soft peach and light lavender. It’s enough color to be noticed while still being refined.

Pastels Aplenty

Swoon by Katie

Spring is all about pastels (think: soft yellow, blush pink and light lavender). Layer with shiny metallics like copper and rose gold for a luxe look, or pair with neutrals like gray and taupe to keep the palette from feeling too “Easter.” And don’t be afraid to mix more than two colors. Try dressing your bridesmaids in various shades or create pairings for individual elements of your wedding, like lavender and mint for the ceremony, champagne and yellow for the cocktail hour, and gray and pale blue for the reception. Also hot, Pantone’s Color of the Year, marsala. Because this wine-like hue has rich undertones, pair it with ice blue to soften the look.

We know how hard it can be to pick just one wedding dress, but thanks to designers like Monique Lhuillier, Dennis Basso and Romona Keveza, you can get two dresses in one. These gorgeous silhouettes with removable skirts stole the show at Bridal Fashion Week and have become a must-have for fashion-forward brides everywhere. Now you can look glamorous for your strut down the aisle and also be ready to boogie come reception time.

Tall Tiers

Wedding cakes are on the rise — in tiers, that is. We’re talking five and six layers, plus the return of columns to give the confections even more height. These sugar masterpieces are as elegant as ever with bold sugar flowers, detailed patterns and pretty piping. A wedding cake is like the exclamation point to your day, so why not go big and tall?

Passed Eats

From artisan spirits to interactive food stations, spring receptions are all about the eats and specialty sips. If you’re opposed to a sit-down dinner, consider this new twist on food stations: Serve a whole meal in small plates passed by servers. Your caterer can create a menu that moves from light cocktail bites to heavier hors d’oeuvres and finishes with something sweet. Your guests will be free to chat and move about the party (no bad table assignments here!) and still get fed. Consider sourcing locally produced spirits or having a bar stocked with a single liquor (whiskey is pretty popular), bitters and colorful glassware so guests can help themselves.

Floral Prints

Add a pop of color with a pretty floral pattern. Pastel, floral-print bridal gowns were big on the spring runways. Want to stick with white? Dress your bridesmaids in a happy print instead. You could even opt for printed floral pocket squares for the guys to tie the whole bridal party look together.

Spring Greens and Blooms

Embrace this blooming season in full force. Green garlands of ivy, lemon leaves or seeded eucalyptus will add a fresh look to long feasting tables or aisles. Or opt for flowering branches, like cherry blossoms or forsythia–they’ll add height to your reception tables and make for easy conversation. Take advantage of spring flowers like sweet peas, lilacs, hyacinths, tulips and peonies (everyone’s favorite wedding flower). Choosing in-season stems gives you the freshest flowers and the most bang for your buck.

Estate Gems

One-of-a-kind engagement rings are trending. Brides and grooms are not only embracing warm tone metals like yellow and rose gold, they’re seeking out unique estate pieces as well. Want a brand-new ring, but love the vintage-heirloom look? Designers like Catbird, Anna Sheffield and Trumpet and Horn are creating vintage-inspired designs that give you the best of both worlds.

Gaga for Gold

Gold foil reigns! The foil trend — gold, rose gold, sliver and copper — is here to stay. From light dustings to full-on gold rushes, this luxe printing technique can add a fancy touch to an otherwise casual invitation, or can really dress up black-tie correspondence. Bold pops of color are also trending (think: your envelope, a vibrant belly band or a colorful patterned invite backing).

Haute Hair

If you’re not the veil-wearing type, you’re in luck. This spring is all about the hair accessory. From ethereal tiaras to flowering vines and bridal hats, there’s something for every bridal look. Choose a piece that complements the style of your dress, like a gold-leaf tiara paired with a long-sleeve gown. If you want to modify your look between the ceremony and reception without changing your dress, switch up your hair accessory to something more playful.
