Are you planning of buying a costume for an upcoming event? You need to consider a number of tips. Here are some of the tips that you should consider:


Experts recommend that you should always buy your costume early enough. This is to give you ample time to exchange or fix any flaws it might have before the big event. You should note that costumes come in limited sizes and are sold in specific stores; therefore, you can’t run into any store and get out with a costume.

If you are unsure of the right size for you, you should always order a costume that is a size larger.

Buy With A Return Option

A return policy allows you to return your costume in the event that you don’t like it. If you are unsure of the right costume to go for, you should consider buying from stores with a return policy.

You should note that different stores have different return policies. For example, there are some that require you to pay a restocking fee while others don’t. Most stores will require you to meet the shipping costs. To be on the safe side, you should carefully read the return policies before hitting the buy button.

Go For Used Costumes

Are you planning of attending a party, but are operating on a tight budget? You should consider buying a used costume. The cool thing is that there are many online and offline stores that sell used costumes. When making the purchase you should ensure that the costumes aren’t overly-used.

Buy The Right Accessories

The right accessories greatly determine the look of the costume. For your costume to look like a real costume you should ensure that you use the right accessories. For example, if you have a pirate costume, you should ensure that you have the right sword. If on the other hand you are buying a witch costume, you should buy the right fairy wand or witch’s broom.

Types of costumes

There are many types of costumes that you can buy. The most common ones being:

Religious: are you a religious person? You should go for a religious costume. There are many types of these costumes that you can go for. For example, you can go for a Virgin Mary, Joseph, pharaoh, three wise men, roman solider costume or any other religious person that you like.

Ninja: everything in a ninja costume is black. This includes: pants, top, socks, shoes, gloves, mask and sash. As a ninja you should have a weapon which can be a sword, dagger, start, garrotte, and nun-chuck.

Zombie: zombie costumes are ideal for Halloween parties. The cool thing with these costumes is that you can wear almost anything. For example, you can wear your regular clothes or a suit. All you need to do is to get the clothes a little dirty and tear them in order to give them a grave look.

In addition to dressing in torn clothes, you also need to paint yourself. Some of the colours that you can use are red and green.


These are tips on how to buy the right costume. As rule of thumb you should ensure that you buy from a well-known and reputable store. This calls for you to do your research and identify the best store to buy from. If you don’t have money to buy an already made costume, you should consider making the costume at home. Here you only need to buy the necessary materials.

We sell many types of party costumes such as Halloween Party Dress. We also have Lycra spandex Zentai Suit and many others.

Theories of Possible Zombie Weaknesses


Achilles’ Heel: Theories of Possible Zombie Weaknesses

howtokillazombieAchilles’ Heel: Theories of Possible Zombie Weaknesses
By Steven Mosley

So what is a Zombie? There are usually two definitions that are agreed upon by most experts. One: a Zombie is a dead human that has been reanimated to a state between life and death and its only function in life is to eat other human flesh. Two: a Zombie is a human in a death-like state, who is stripped of all human cognition, will and all other mental or spiritual faculties. It really does not matter which definition you subscribe to–what truly matters is how to capitalize on a Zombie’s possible weaknesses for the sole purpose of dispatching the creature.

Based on what is known about Zombies, the mainstream thought is that a Zombie’s only true weakness is the BRAIN. I cannot disagree with this assessment. If one causes major trauma to the brain, one will destroy the Zombie. The main concern should be to cause “severe” traumatic brain injury (TBI). A penetrating or closed (blunt) blow to the head can achieve this, and it matters not which method is used to dispatch the Zombie. The deliver the most effective strike, one should aim at the temple, the bridge of nose/eyes, or the base of the skull. Hitting one of these areas with brutal force will help ensure maximum damage. It should be noted that there are many different types of weapons that can cause TBI, and they include firearms or other projectile-style weapons, blunt or cutting implements, and/or puncturing weapons. The bottom line is this: destroying the brain destroys the Zombie.

In addition to directly destroying the brain with any of the aforementioned implements, there are additional weaknesses upon which one can capitalize: possible intermediary measures leading towards the end goal of Zombie destruction. Consider the following.

A Zombie’s eyes: in the extremely interesting paper entitled Madore’s Zombie War Doctrine, the two brothers, David and Robert, describe the blinding of a Zombie as a serious alternative to attempting a very difficult headshot with a firearm. Based on my three decades of firearms experience, I have to agree that headshots are extremely difficult, and blinding a target would seem to be much easier. According the Madore Brothers, Zombies first perceive the human shape with their eyes, and then due to the excessive production of Rhodopsin in their eyes, Zombies utilize their “infra-red heat vision” to sense the human heat signature. It stands to reason that destruction of the Zombie’s ability to see can effectively keep them from locating human prey. Nevertheless, one must keep in mind that though its ability to find human prey has been effectively shut down, without destroying the Zombie brain, it still possesses the ability to hone in on and relay other Zombies’ prey alert signals. In other words, it can continue to attract other Zombies to an area, so the Zombie must ultimately be killed as quickly as possible.

This blinding tactic can be accomplished using either a Destructive or Obstructive method. For example, destruction could be accomplished through shotgun pellets, a crossbow arrow or a pistol bullet to the eye. A simple obstructive method could be paint pellets from a paint ball gun– I particularly like this idea. Shoot the Zombie in the eyes to blind it, and then destroy its brain with some type of impact weapon; my personal preference is a Kukri knife. I believe actual field testing needs to be conducted on this new Zombie war doctrine, but I must say that based on my training experience, it can work.

Another potential weakness to exploit is the Zombie’s single-mindedness. As we all know, Zombies eat human flesh. It is all they desire. Their inability to think or do anything else can certainly be used against them. Once a Zombie pinpoints on a human, that Zombie will not stop until it reaches that prey, finds another prey, or erodes. Of course its prey alert signal will attract additional Zombies to the same location. One killing strategy could be setting up either a booby trap or an ambush for a group of Zombies. Drawing one Zombie into the trap and allowing others to follow suit could lead a sizeable horde to destruction. This is a very simple tactic that could yield a high-kill ratio.

Two additional potential weaknesses that I will mention are the act of breaking a Zombie’s jaw and cutting a Zombie’s Achilles tendon. The former affects its ability to bite, and the latter hinders its ability to move. It is my personal opinion that breaking the jaw is a waste of time. If one is going to strike the jaw area, why not just strike the entire head and achieve the ultimate desired effect of permanent brain injury? Although it requires some accuracy, the Achilles tendon, on the other hand, could be used with effectiveness. When facing multiple threats, if one can navigate towards the back of the threat, one could possibly sever the Achilles tendon. This would affect the Zombie’s mobility and afford time to regroup and destroy it at a later time. Please remember: neither of these actions will terminate a Zombie. They may slow Zombie progress, but brain trauma is the sure thing!

In the interest of fighting and destroying the menacing Zombie population, I hope that I have given you some food for thought. Unlike fully-functioning human beings, Zombies do not have many weaknesses. However, the weaknesses they do possess can be effectively exploited by adept and motivated individuals who possess proper weapons training and a winning mindset. The key is to hit first, hit fast and hit forcefully. I cannot over-emphasize that brain trauma is the sure thing for Zombie destruction. All the other weaknesses discussed are just a means to the coup de grĂ¢ce!

Can you get an STD from a Zombie?


Zombies and Syphilis – A Myth to Explain a Disease?

Zombies and Syphilis – A Myth to Explain a Disease?

By Renee Klepzig

triple+dripperZombies have long been a fascination for Americans. From Night of the Living Dead to the Walking Dead to Dawn of the Dead, to Jane Austen and Zombies to Zombie Apocalypse, the zombie subculture is “alive” and kicking it in the millennium. Zombies have infiltrated everything from films to books to video games, cocktails, cartoons, and bands. Every October, Zombie Crawls are celebrated as people dress up as zombies in order to shuffle and stagger their way from bar to bar to drink zombies. This zombie phenomenon is not limited to Halloween. This spring, a 5K charity run is scheduled in which the runners have the added incentive to cross the finish line quickly as they will be chased by-you guessed it-zombies.

Zombies are believed to have originated in the Haitian African-American culture. Fueled by macabre voodoo rituals, dark magic revived the dead to do the bidding of those who summoned them. These walking corpses shambled forward with a stilted gait. Flesh rotted away from their bodies, and their minds could no longer formulate rational thought.

What does any of this have to do with sexually transmitted diseases? Good question. The answer may surprise you.

In 1492, Europeans brought small pox, bubonic plague, venereal disease, and religion to the New World. The New World returned the favor with syphilis.

Late stage, tertiary syphilis is syphilis that has not been treated. Spirochetes are wormlike microscopic organisms. Over the course of the disease, they multiply to the millions and lodge in most of the major organs including the brain. The human body becomes stooped and rapidly ages. Symptoms of late-stage syphilis include a jerky, stumbling step, large oozing sores, loss of tissue such as the end of the nose, and moments of euphoria followed by rage. In other words, late-stage syphilitics and zombies share many of the same traits.

Zombies originated in the New World as did syphilis. Myths develop in order to explain the otherwise unexplainable. In this instance, the zombie myth developed in order to explain syphilis, an incurable and deadly disease in pre-penicillin days. While syphilis is now treatable, it took more than 450 years to find a cure.

While the zombie myth may have arose as a way to explain a sickness, modern culture has embraced zombies. Michael Jackson’s,Thriller video of dancing zombies, remains the number one best-selling album of all time in the United States. In 2010, Asbury Park, New Jersey set the Guinness’ World Record Zombie Walk with an official 4,093 participants.

There are many ways to get an STD, and if you get one, find a location for STD Testing in Philadelphia.
