The Perfect Costumes for Cyber Monday

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends.  Our waistlines are a little bit larger today but the annual fall feast was of course well worth tacking on a few extra pounds for.  With December almost here, the holiday season is officially underway and office workers are diligently catching up on their job duties, all the while keeping an eye (and mouse) on the best internet deals and discounts they can find for “Cyber Monday.”  The aptly-named online shopper’s bonanza makes us think of this great viral video we found with a costumer who has taken the Transformer Bumblebee look to an incredible new level.  Check out our other Transformers, Terminator and robot costumes to assemble a futuristic outfit for yourself or to give as a Hanukkah or Christmas gift.  Start clicking and find your favorite character costumes, masks, wigs, hats, party supplies and accessories on our site – just make sure that if you’re browsing at work, the boss doesn’t catch you shopping on company time! Good Luck and Happy Holidays from HollywoodToysAndCostumes.com.

Tiger Woods: Injured from Crash or Assaulted by Wife?

Just when you thought he couldn’t be anymore perfect…think again..

tiger-woods

Tiger Woods was recently involved in a  car accident in front of his Florida home.

At first speculation was of DUI or careless driving…But multiple sources have revealed his wife as the catalyst for his injuries.

And why….?

Because Mrs. Woods is reportedly a woman scorned! Several reports have surfaced of an alleged affair with the already infamous husband stealer Rachel Uchitel, a NY night club hostess.

It was said that Tiger’s wife was responsible for the lacerations on his face, in addition to the accident in its entirety.

Lesson learned Tiger? We certainly hope so!

Party at the White House?….

President Obama hosted his first state dinner at the White House, honoring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife, Gursharan Kaur….

And while it seemed to be politics as usual for Obama & Co…A Virginia couple managed to pull off arguably one of the best party crashings of all time!

partycrashers

Tareq and Michaele Salahi, of Virginia managed to attend this gala uninvited and undetected..as the couple managed to pass by the Secret Service.

And to top it off…the couple managed to rub some serious elbows…They were fortunate enough to schmooze with Vice President Biden and posted a picture of the trio on their Facebook!

So lesson here is while we are out spending billions of dollars searching for terrorists…an average couple crashes the White House…Makes total sense!

Looking to pull a Salahi at the next White House event…maybe these masks will help..

If not it was worth a shot!

Sarah Palin: Iraq, Iran..What is the Difference?

So with Sarah Palin’s new book out on the market..she is now busy making her rounds across the country..

sarah-palin

Unfortunately, Tina Fey the II doesn’t seem like she has been doing her homework…

In a recent interview with FOX News’ Sean Hannity…Palin confuses two countries when answering a very important question…

Iran, Iraq….ehh they are all the same right?

Wrong! Palin commits an act similar to a classic Kanye West incident…a train wreck that we can’t help but watch.

Fortunately for Palin, she answered the question seemingly indifferent towards her error.  At least shes confident !
