I Made These 80 Costumes Using Stuff I Had In My House

I'm a Philly-based comedian. I live alone with my cat, and I have not touched another person in eight weeks. But I have built a sense of community. When the quarantine started, I randomly posted online that if people sent me Halloween costume ideas, I would recreate them using just what I had in my house. Since then, I have posted at least one costume every day, and sometimes as many as four or five. I also integrate my cat, Scrappy, into my costumes whenever possible. She might have a stronger following than I do. The Instagram I started for the project,  and have an engaged following, also I have a steadily growing request queue.

#1 Harry Potter

There’s even been some celebrity engagement. I did a costume of Justin Long in Dodgeball, and he left a clever emoji in the comment section. I’m also a big fan of Justin Long’s podcast, Life is Short with Justin Long, and the “shorties” in the podcast’s Facebook group have cheered me on as I tried to recreate some of Long’s more iconic characters. I portrayed the O.J. Simpson prosecutor and author, Marcia Clark, and she reposted the costume on her wall (where someone made a hurtful comment about my eyebrows, which are admittedly very distinctive). Fran Drescher’s nephew, Lyle, another comedian with roots in the Philly scene, texted her my Nanny costume, and she said it was really cute.

#2 Cher

#3 Zoolander

Humor has always been my coping skill. I’m a goofball. With so much uncertainty in the world right now, it’s really exciting that I am able to add some levity to people’s days. A lot of people were putting up their Christmas decorations as a way to spread some cheer, and I thought, “I don’t have any Christmas stuff, but what if I made every day Halloween?” I’m a comedian, so brightening people’s days by being a goof is all I’ve ever wanted to do. A lot of my friends in both the Philly and Minneapolis comedy scenes have been supportive of the project. My family has been really into it too, and I like to send my costumes to our group text before I post them online, so they know they saw it first.

#4 Joe Exotic

#5 Poison Ivy

For my 100th costume, I did a live Zoom show, where I created the costume in real-time, while viewers called in with guesses about what the costume would be. It was a lot of fun and gave me the fix I used to get from doing stand up for a crowd. Viewers were also able to donate to my Venmo. Even with all of the gigs I lost when the pandemic hit, that live show let me pay my rent this month. Many open mics and shows have moved to an online format, and it has actually been pretty fun to get to watch comedy from my bed, couch, or toilet. Navigating the online format was challenging, but my friends Joshua Machiz, Jordan Berger, and Johnny Hart volunteered to be my production team, so I only had to worry about the artistic elements of the show.

#6 Eleven

#7 Jack Sparrow

I’m thinking of doing a live show every 50 costumes since it doesn’t look like I’ll be performing on stage for a packed house any time soon. I figure I can donate a portion of the proceeds to a different non-profit every month, and hopefully, my little 'quarantween' community can make a real difference that way.

People Working In Tech Support Are Sharing Photos Of Hardware Disasters, And Here Are 53 Of The Worst Ones

There's a subreddit called r/techsupportgore, and its name perfectly describes its content: people who fix computers upload photos of the nightmarish scenarios they find themselves in. From melted extension cords to server rooms that look like a jungle, some of these hardware disasters are so bad, you can't help but feel for the folks who have to fix them. So continue scrolling, check out the pics, and don't be surprised if you cringe to the brink of passing out after only a few of them.

#1 Ticket Said "Camera Flickers To Fuzzy Brown Image Often"

The subreddit was created on the 29th of February, 2012, and since then it has grown into a 427K member-big community. They aren't interested in trivial things like cracked screens or anything -- just the filthiest, nastiest, gore there is. And it doesn't seem that it's drying out, too. Just think of all the people who acquire a new gadget or an appliance, and are so eager to use it, they skip the operation manual (myself included).

#2 “The Printer Isn’t Working”

If you are, however, afraid that you're gonna end up on this subreddit, there are things you can do to prevent it. There's plenty of information on the internet that you can utilize to become more tech savvy. There are forums, websites, and YouTube channels dedicated to specific fields where you can find comprehensive information on how to reset your iPhone and how to fix a malfunctioning laptop. Heck, if you're feeling really adventurous, you can even learn how to code.

When it comes to technology, the information is out there and it's available. You don't have to study computer science to know this stuff. Like a blacksmith who has an exact feel for how he needs to beat a piece of metal in order to mold it, knowledge and regular use of it will make you better at technology.
