The Best Halloween Costumes For Women you will ever see
These are the most amazing, inspirational collection of female Halloween I have ever seen and they are the work of Take Back Halloween. They have been cataloguing and designing costumes of some of the most amazing women from history & mythology from all over the world, literally from Nigeria to Vietnam and everywhere inbetween. Click the pictures to read who they are. On their website they have dozens of costume ideas, costume how to’s and bio’s for each of these amazing women. Reading the bio’s literally gave me chills.
They are running a Halloween contest through their facebook page which I am entering for sure although I’m keepingmy costume idea a secret for now. If any of you lot enter their contest please inbox me on Tumblr so I can showcase your costume to everyone here. They also have a Kickstarter which you can support here.
I had this record as a kid. I used to listen to it over and over again- acting out all sorts of nonsense by myself in my room. I was pretty pleased to find it at a record store in Seattle a few years ago. It was so influential on my adult tastes, I really should frame it.

NASA Takes “Rose” Galaxy Photo for Hubble Telescope Anniversary
Who knew we had a “rose-shaped” galaxy in space? The astronomers who run the Hubble Space Telescope did. In celebration of the 21st anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope’s deployment into space, astronomers at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, pointed Hubble’s eye to an especially photogenic group of interacting galaxies called Arp 273.
The larger of the spiral galaxies, known as UGC 1810, has a disk that is tidally distorted into a rose-like shape by the gravitational tidal pull of the companion galaxy below it, known as UGC 1813. A swath of blue jewels across the top is the combined light from clusters of intensely bright and hot young blue stars. These massive stars glow fiercely in ultraviolet light.
I give you this rose…
That’s pretty durn fancy.
