Ah, Hallow-weekend. The most anticipated time of the year for college students everywhere. This is the one time of year that it’s appropriate to dress like a complete weirdo and to go out every single night of the week and then go to your 8 a.m. class with leftover makeup on and a bit still hungover. If this is your first Halloweekend or you literally live for this holiday, you probably already have all your costumes planned out. Heck, you probably coordinated every group costume and prepared everything weeks in advance. If you’re anything like me, you probably will decide what to wear an hour before you leave the house. If you’re really like me, you don’t want to be basic about Halloween costumes.

That being said, I’m a pro and here are my 10 best costumes for Halloween procrastinators!

1. A potato

All you need is a big brown t-shirt. If you want to really get into it AND have a snack at the same time, feel free to carry around potato items such as potato chips, mashed potatoes, french fries...the list goes on! After all, you are what you eat!

2. A Hanging Chad

For all you “How I Met Your Mother” fans out there, this idea is probably one of the best ones ever. And hey! You never know--you might meet your very own slutty pumpkin that night!

3. DoodleBob

Easy. Funny. Creative. Just don’t get too annoying with the “hoy minoys.”

4. Get a group of friends and be a boy band

One Direction, the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC (pro-tip: if you pick this band, utilize ramen noodles to get that perfect early Justin Timberlake hairdo), KISS, the list can go on and on...

5. early 2000s Britney Spears

Use “...Baby One More Time,” “Toxic,” and “Oops! ...I Did It Again” for inspiration. Honestly, there’s nothing more iconic than her pink pigtail, gray sweater schoolgirl look.

6. Care Bears

Another group costume idea! Care Bear stare down the haters in this fun throwback! From Grumpy Bear to Funshine Bear, there’s a Care Bear for every member of your squad!

7. Sexy Founding Fathers

You’ve heard of sexy firemen, sexy police officers, and sexy schoolgirl. Well, now you can add sexy founding fathers to that list! Whether you pick George Washington (“you can chop down my cherry tree”), Honest Abe (more like Honest BABE) or any other founding father, president or otherwise, make sure you REALLY hype it up and make it as scandalous as possible! My reasoning on the costume idea? Halloween has made literally everything else sexy so if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

8. Zombie Guy Fieri

This one doesn’t need an explanation other than it would be awesome as heck

9. A Trophy

First, you pick what kind of trophy you’re going to be. Are you basketball? Soccer? Gymnastics? Then decide what place you’re in. If you want to be a first-place trophy, body paint yourself gold. If you’re more of a second-place kind of person, go for silver. Whatever you decide, this costume makes for a bomb photo opt.

10. A Pinata

Wear a fringy shirt or dress and carry a bat. Whenever someone hits you, you throw candy. It’s fun and yummy!

So, there you have it! Go forth and get spooky! Happy Halloween!!

19 Struggles Only Girls With The 'Looks Thin In Clothes But Not In A Bikini' Body Type Will Understand

A resounding 'thank you' to whoever decided one-pieces were cool again.

We grew up thinking the world was black and white. There's tall people and short people. There's old people and young people.

There's fat people and skinny people.

But as you get older, you realize there is a lot more in between those two ends of the spectrum than you ever thought possible. Especially when it comes to weight. And you do a lot more realizing if you're in an awkward position on that scale... Literally.

1. People always tell you to stop saying you are fat

Obviously, your friends SHOULD prevent you from talking negatively about yourself. And if you only saw you when you were fully dressed, you'd probably tell yourself to stop saying you're fat, too.

2. And are kind of surprised by your actual weight

You've definitely had friends who are shocked by the number on your scale because you can carry it pretty well when you are fully dressed.

3. Sometimes you feel like a catfish

Have you ever changed out of your super cute, flattering outfit and looked at yourself in the mirror and thought... Wow, am I lying to people?

4. But you know this is probably true for most people

When you're wearing clothes, typically the parts of a body that bring about insecurities (stomach, namely) are covered. No matter the body type, you realize most people are more comfortable in clothes than out of them.

5. Your confidence is often contingent on the month

November? Yep, won't need to be in shorts or a bikini for about 7-8 months. I am good to go.

February? I'll need to be in a bikini soon.. I could use some work.

6. You are thrilled by the one-piece bathing suit making a fashion come back

A resounding 'thank you' to whoever decided it was time to give one-pieces a try again. The stomachs of us in-between gals are appreciative.

7. Crop tops are 95% of the time not your top of choice

Yeah, okay, clothes are supposed to work for me and not against me.

8. You honestly don't understand jean sizes

I have fluctuated in weight a lot of my life, most recently losing 25lbs, and I still did not budge in jean sizes.

9. You wonder what other people think when they see you

Do other people see me as thin in clothing? Or fat in a bikini? What size am I perceived as?

10. Shopping is kind of a nightmare

Have you ever found about 27 items you liked, added the prices and thought, ah, it is going to be so tough to choose from all of these items? Only to go into the fitting room and realize only 2 of the items fit you well? Yep, me every single time I go to the store.

11. You're thankful that at least you've got boobs

You can kind of hide them in clothes, and then let them steal the show away from your tummy in a swimsuit.

12. You have a hard time setting weight-loss goals

You aren't really sure how overweight you are (if you are, at all) and you don't want to be at an unhealthy weight on either side of the spectrum.

13. Body positivity comes and goes

There are days, weeks or even months when you feel like the most beautiful person on the planet, and then something happens (old jeans don't fit, you try on a new bathing suit, etc.) and you convince yourself that all of that confidence was wrong and undeserved.

14. You always try on the biggest size first

Either this or you're in a weird limbo between the smallest plus sizes size and the biggest generic sizes size.

15. Half of you knows every body is a bikini body, and half of you is convinced that yours is not

You know that your body is worthy of wearing whatever you want to wear, but looking at yourself and seeing what society (and you) sometimes deem as unattractive can eat away at that knowledge.

16. But you also know self-love and confidence are key to beauty

Even if you have to fake it, you know that feeling confident is going to carry you pretty far.

17. Being in a bathing suit is a constant game of readjustment

Okay, I am sitting. Pull the bottoms up to cover as much as my stomach as possible and the back of the top down to cover any back rolls.

18. You've avoided the mirror after a shower before

You know that you are just going to lose all the comfort you felt in your body during the day when you see yourself, so sometimes it is best to just avoid it.

19. Ultimately, you know your beauty is not contingent on what you are wearing

The goal for everyone should be to get to a point where it doesn't matter if you're in a snowsuit, a bathing suit or a birthday suit... You can see your beauty no matter what and feel confident despite what you have on. It'll take time, but falling in love with the way you look is worth it.

Masvidal Looks To Upset Darren Till at Fight Night 147

Gamebred Will Be In Enemy Territory In The Main Event Against Darren Till

209

#11 ranked Welterweight Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal will be taking on #3 ranked Darren "The Gorilla" Till in the main event this weekend at UFC Fight Night 147 in London, England at the O2 Arena in a bout that already potentially fight of the year when we consider who these 2 contenders are. With the recent defeat of former champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 235, the Welterweight Division has been shuffled up with the new UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman. While both fighters in the main event this weekend are coming off of losses they are both top contenders that can give Kamaru a run for his money.

It has been a struggle to get these 2 top contenders opponent's, and this was the ideal match up to headline this card. Former title challenger Darren Till was ready to have a home game in England as he has been very eager to return to the octagon since his recent loss. Even with his most recent loss against former champion Tyron "The Chosen One" Woodley at UFC 228 Darren Till still has plenty of momentum behind him. With only 1 loss in his mix martial arts career, Darren Till is ready to show why he is the best striker in the Welterweight division.

Jorge Masvidal has been out of action for quite some time as he also struggled to find an opponent before this match was booked. The last time Jorge Masvidal was in action was at UFC 217 when he faced now #4 ranked welterweight Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson in a title contention fight that "Wonderboy" walked away with when he won the fight by unanimous decision. Unfortunately, Masvidal is currently on a 2 fight losing streak and he lost the bout before that against former title challenger Damian Maia by split decision. Jorge Masvidal is looking to get one of the biggest upsets this year if he can hand Darren Till his 2nd loss in the UFC.

Since Kamaru Usman defeated Tyron Woodley at UFC 235 and claimed the UFC Welterweight Championship, he has started a new era that will be very interesting to see how it plays out as the year continues to unfold. Dana White has already announced that the next big fight in the welterweight division is already set to take place as Kamaru Usman will defend his new title for the 1st time against former Interim Title holder Colby "Chaos" Covington. It is just unclear when or where this fight will take place. More than likely it will take place on international fight week in July.

It is well known that the Funky one Ben Askren will also be at the event this weekend as he is expected to call out and take on the winner between Jorge Masvidal and Darren Till. Ben Askren is coming off of a controversial victory over "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler. A potential fight between #6 ranked "Funky" Ben Askren and either Darren Till or Jorge Masvidal would be very interesting. Darren Till and Ben Askren have continued to go back and forth the past couple of weeks. Especially, after Bens most recent victory.
