Scarecrow Costume Tutorial

Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeennnnnnn!

This is probably one of my favorite and stressful days of the year 😀 I love to see the creativity of other people’s costumes. This is a great day to be with your friends, go trick or treating, and be your childish, silly self. This day is also fairly stressful because of costume choices. I had planned out my costume since Halloween of 2013, but my diligence kind of died November of 2013 and I had to rush a costume on October 30th. Oops? And this year, I decided to be (drumroll) a scarecrow!!!

Yes, yes I know – so original.

And you can probably tell from the title of this blog that the tutorial will start….NOW!

This is what it looks like with all the pieces of the costume:

Steve Jobs

Hello everyone!

Remember the blog post I did a few months back about Orphans and What If projects? And I applied the song “Hey Brother” by Avicii? If not, I’ll provide a short summary in this post, but you should check out the older post! If so, then here’s a part twooo!!!

In English class, actually, not English class, but its a humanities class. We do read books and discuss about them and write essays, but my teacher applies books in a way to benefit life and make our lives more worth living. This year, he decided to try something new which is the What If or DIY project. We were separated into groups of our pick and my group consisting of other bloggers decided to raise the awareness of orphans!  This is our contact information:

Our group decided that we should create a Facebook page in order to promote awareness among the teenagers about orphans. What we thought of was: what is the best way to catch a teenager’s attention? Phones, Smartphones. Who created them? Steve Jobs! Know what else? He was an orphan as well.

 We’re not that good with technology and editing, but we tried! This is our video with information of Steve Jobs. Please try to share this video if possible. Since this is also a music blog, I found something really awesome on YouTube called “Thank You, Steve.” It’s an amazing remixed tune that is made with ONLY SOUNDS FROM APPLE PRODUCTS and excerpts from his speeches! You should definitely listen to it and Steve’s inspirational quotes!
