How to Piece Together Cosplays Using Amazon Prime: Part Two

Poision Ivy and Constantine cosplays pieced together using Amazon Prime for under $50.

How to Piece Together Cosplays Using Amazon Prime: Part Two

A few weeks ago I showed you how to use Amazon Prime to piece together 2 cosplays. The cosplays were Suicide Squad's Harley Quinn and Lobo. You missed it?! I'll forgive you, click here for that article. Anyway, this week I'll be using the same criteria to build a Poision Ivy and Constantine cosplay. My criteria was: Do not go over $100, all items must be Prime or Add-On eligible, and all items must have at least a 4 star rating. I actually was able to stay under $50 for both this time.

1) Poison Ivy $49.92

The vixen in green. I started by looking for a green corset. I found one with good reviews for only $19.99 here. I realize that you also need something to cover your booty, got that covered with booty shorts! ($9.99) I realize that you want some leaves, but you may not have time to hand-sew or glue them on. I covered that too by finding tights with a lovely leaf print ($10.15). And, for extra leaves and that bad-girl-vixen feel I also found glovelettes ($9.79).

2) John Constantine $39.94

Ok guys, this is another one where I assumed that you own dark pants and a white button-up shirt. If not, wow. I'll just leave it at that. The important parts of his outfit? His iconic jacket and tie. His double-breasted khaki trench coat totals $31.99. I've seen many variances on his tie. Variances such as color being red or black, and regular cut or skinny cut. I chose this black tie in skinny cut for only $7.95.

I hope this helps all of you cosplayers that want to add your own touch to your cosplays. I know not all of us have the time, money, or skill to build costumes from the ground up. I also get that some of us in the hobby can't afford commission work too. I hope this inspires you to piece together your own costumes. Happy cosplaying.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
