This Grandma Got A Cosplay Makeover And She Looks Unbelievable

Alexandra Brumley is a photographer with a special focus on cosplay. She loves costumes, the actors who don costumes, and placing them in their magical world with her camera:

She covers comic book characters, video games, anime, Disney, Star Wars, and even characters from fairytales. Also Taylor Swift.

Brumley has managed to touch on just about every fantasy theme in her work, but she recently announced a new project that’s much more personal.

On twitter she shared photos of her grandmother on her birthday, dressing up for her first experience doing cosplay and looking fan-freaking-tastic:

Brumley wrote on Instagram that she assembled her grandmother’s costume from old pieces she’s made, and is calling her character “Snow Queen Mother.”

In another posts she added that her grandmother suffered a stroke, and lives with Brumley’s parents.

Winter amongst the family is a bit quiet and sad, as it’s a time marked by the memory of loss.

Brumley says that she realized she didn’t have as many picture of loved ones as she wishes she did, including her grandfather, so including family members in her fantasy world is an important connection for her to make.

Though Brumley’s grandmother looks very serious and majestic in her photo, Brumley still has a playful view of her real connection to her:

Brumley has a relatively small following on Twitter, but her pictures of her grandmother have been retweeted over ten thousand times. They’re just that good.

And Brumley’s grandmother loves them too:

Can’t wait until the whole family gets their shoot!

Everyone Is Laughing At Guy Who Stared At Girl's Honey Buns Too Long

Wes, or @foxmccloud82, is a Twitter user who has a very awkward way with the ladies. He recently shared a conversation with a woman from his class—it seems like they have been assigned as partners for a project, and she’s a little suspicious of his interest in her:

According to the text exchange, she thinks he was giving her the eyes in class even though he’s got “a girl.” 

He has denied it with the strongest language and with the weirdest excuse: he was just looking at her honey buns. 

Ahh, the old Honey Bun Excuse. Well, he makes a compelling case.

At the very least, this story is extremely relatable. Everyone has salivated over a honey bun in their life:

Personally, I don’t think anyone owes you a honey bun. If I see someone walk in with three, I assume it’s because they need three. I don’t need to know why. But folks are still offended on his behalf:

Though some are genuinely curious about his actual girlfriend. What does she think about this story?

Wes is famous, regardless of how true his story was, and no one has thought about honey buns this much in ages. Great viral marketing campaign:

Wes seems to not exactly have the smoothest way with the ladies, in general.

Maybe he should consider handing out pastries?

This Woman Is Regretting Buying Something Hilarious At A College Party

We’ve all done something that we’ve regretted in college. But that’s okay, because college is probably the last chance at being young and free that you’re going to get. And over the weekend, Twitter user Annie Swartz of Texas Tech did something that probably seemed like a good idea at the time, and would probably be considered an equally great idea by many people, day or night. 

Swartz is well known for finding all the animals at parties. Whether it be a chicken or a puppy. 

But over the weekend, Swartz went way too far when she found one animal. 

Yes, she purchased a goat. No, she doesn’t still want the goat now that the party is over.

Somehow, this is a relatable tweet for some people. 

Others were just wondering how someone can accidentally buy a goat. Or why this is a problem. 

People really like goats, apparently. 

A lot of people seem to think this will happen to them. 

Would you accidentally buy a goat?

People Are Divided On This Mom's Decision To Charge Her 5-Year-Old 'Rent'

It’s easy to blame your parents for all of the weird idiosyncrasies you developed because, up to a certain age, it’s pretty much their fault.

I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that my own son is going to blame me for all of his problems. I guess the only way for me to combat that will be the most present and enthusiastic dad that I can be and take the bad with the good.

It definitely sounds way easier said than done, but I’d imagine if I break my back trying to prepare them for all of the problems that are plaguing me now and people my age, then I’ll give my son and gestating daughter a good leg up for adulthood. I’m sure it’ll have its share of challenges and failures, but hopefully I can laugh at them as much as I laughed at this.

And it’s no secret that schools won’t instruct them on how to properly balance a checkbook, apply for a mortgage, financial aid for college, a car lease, or manage credit cards. 

Which is why I’m intrigued by this post from Mom and Facebook User, Essence Evans.

Evans wrote that she gives her 5-year-old daughter an allowance of $ 7 a week, but takes most of that money from her to teach her the value of a dollar.

There are tons of people who agree with this method.

Lots of people can’t wait to try this same idea with their own children.

With some people saying they’re already employing similar methods to teach their children how to be fiscally responsible.

But there are others who think that Evans is focusing too much on teaching her kids about money at such an early age.

While others believe that dumping that money into a high interest account would be a better use of money, especially because it’s not going to be taken out anytime soon.

Plus, more pedantic Facebook users pointed out that her percentages for rent and utilities could use some more retooling.

What do you think? Is 5-years-old too young to teach your kids the value of a dollar? Or is Evans’ head in the right place?

Kim And Kanye Revealed The Name Of Their Third Child And People Can't Handle It

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has their first child and named her North West, it seemed obvious what direction things would go in. Obviously, their next three kids would be South West, East West, and eventually West West. But when you expect Kimye to zig, they zag.

Little Saint West was born, adding a much holier dimension to the family. When the couple announced they were expecting a third child via surrogate, it was anyone’s guess what was coming.

Now, here she is. Chicago West.

Kim also RTd this, for the folks not sure how to pronounce Chi, because they’re not from Chicago. It’s like “shy.”

Kim and Kanye can’t go for a walk without the Internet weighing in, so you better believe people have thoughts about named a kid after a major metropolitan area:

I understand why people are freaked. Celebrities are generally known for giving their children really ground, average, and unremarkable names. Also for hating drama and attention. 

What do Kim and Kanye think they’re doing??

Donald Trump Is Reportedly Both 'Obsessed' With And 'Terrified' Of Sharks

Okay, so adult film star Stormy Daniels alleges she slept with Donald Trump while he was married to Melania Trump. She gave a full account of the experience according to her to In Touch Weekly, and it’s about as depressing as you can imagine. The salaciousness isn’t even terribly salacious!

But there is one part of Daniels’ account that people are loving.

The man sitting in the White House is allegedly really, really scared of sharks:

The second time Daniels met Trump, she claims he was watching Shark Week on the television. The conversation turned to the ocean’s deadly predator.

The Donald reportedly told her, “I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.”

“He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. It’s so strange, I know,” said Daniels.

Sharks are very scary, but humans are far more dangerous to to them than they are to us. In fact, shark species have been decimated by human shark-hunting ever since the film Jaws was released and sacred people right out of the water. It’s a pretty serious problem for the ocean eco-system—not that Trump gives a crap about the Earth or logical thinking.

People are very interested in his very specific and unnecessary phobia:

It also turns out that Trump’s Twitter account has lot of shark hate in it, too:

He is haunted by sharks at every turn—he even tied them in with the threat of nuclear war at one point? Maybe if we tell Trump that sharks will get him if he starts a nuclear war, it’ll hold him back.

One last fun tidbit is that Trump allegedly told Daniels that he’s afraid if he cuts his hair, he’ll lose all his power:

That could have been a joke, but who knows at this point.

Wife's Dying Wish To Husband Ends Up Being A Hilarious Practical Joke

When Phedre Nicol was battling cancer in 2013 at the age of 69, she gave her husband, Nigel, strict instructions should she pass away. Those instructions? Keep watering the plants in their South Africa home. 

And when Phedre lost her battle in the same year, Nigel, now 73, started keeping that promise. And he’s been watering the ferns in their bathroom for years. Though he probably did wonder why there were puddles of water on the floor every time he watered them. 

Fast forward to 2018, and Nigel is moving into a retirement home. The ferns were still in such good shape, that he decided to pack them along with his belongings. Only then did he realize that how wife has been playing a prank on him this entire time. 

Daughter Antonia, a firefighter from London, explained the prank on Twitter…

Yes, Phedre has had Nigel watering plastic for a few years. Antonia explained to The Mirror that no one else was in on the prank…

Antonia explains that her father was so “overcome with grief,” he religiously watered the plants. The couple had apparently always been pranksters…

She goes on to explain what the discovery meant for her father…

And the reaction it got from social media was even more heartwarming. 

Nigel even reenacted the watering of the ferns for his new fans…

To say this is peak relationship goals is an understatement…

Cat Survives For A Week In Home Destroyed By Santa Barbara Mudslide

Earlier in the month, landslides devastated the community of Montecito, California, leaving at least 20 people dead and several still missing. More than a hundred buildings were also destroyed or damaged, as roads became rivers of boulders. 

Experts pinned the blame on mountains rising and becoming unstable because of the region’s active faults. It’s believed that these were made even more unstable because recent wildfires had scorched much of the surrounding area’s vegetation, allowing much more rain into the soil

Lindsey and Woody Thompson were among those affected by the disaster, losing their home in the space of a few minutes. The couple were so afraid, they left goodbye messages for each other in case one of them did not make it. 

They were luck enough to survive, and were airlifted to safety after rescue teams were unable to get to their home by land. But in all the chaos, they lost their beloved cat Koshka. 

Despite getting separated, the couple were certain that Koshka was still alive. “We knew that she was alive and we knew that she was smart and she would find a safe spot,” Woody said

They reached out to Santa Barbara County Animal Services (SBCAS), who were helping track down lost animals and providing shelter to the animals of families who needed it. 

SBCAS sent a team to the house to see if they could find any signs of the cat. 

“Our teams went to the property as soon as we were able but we were not able to access the property safely,” they wrote in a statement.  

Because a local fire team was on the scene, they were able to get close enough to spot some positive signs but were also unable to enter the property. 

“We consulted with a nearby fire team who was unable to see Koshka but could see her muddy paw prints which gave us hope.”

The team returned daily from January 9th to the 15th, when officers Pennon and Lauren of the ASPCA felt it was safe to access the house through a window. There, they found Koshka caked in mud, but in good health and excited to see some human faces for the first time in more than a week. 

SBCAS recorded the tearful moment the family was reunited. 

“They called her the ‘pawprint kitty’ and she lived, and I just can’t thank you enough. We needed this. Thank you. You’re our heroes,” Lindsey says during the video. 

“Those small victories are so important. there’s so much devastation here and being able to reunite that cat with her family was special for me, was special for our department,” Officer Pennon told KEYT

As you can imagine, social media was touched by the reunion. The video has received over 3,000 shares since it was published. 

One Facebook user shared a similar experience and what it meant to them: 

“We lost our home, everything we had-barely managed to escape-from a wildfire in Nor Cal,” the commenter wrote. “A week later I got an email from Home Again, they found my cat (she was microchipped and the microchip was registered with current contact info), Animal Control found our cat. Burned, scared, and alive. We lost everything we own, but got our cat back. I feel these people’s joy. Congratulations!”

Others couldn’t imagine the same thing happening to them. 

“I own 7 kitties and can’t even imagine the thought of losing one of them like this,” another user wrote. “Thanks SO much to the rescuers who kept returning to search for this beauty and thanks to kitty Koshka for keeping the faith and having good instincts. Lots of tears here!” 

Others were quick to applaud all those involved in the rescue. 

“Thank you so much officer Pennon and partner Lauren. You made two people very happy because you took the time to rescue their kitty. There is a special place in heaven for people like you.”

“So nice to see something positive come from so much tragedy!”

“Thank you Officer Michael Snyder-Pennon from Dallas, Texas. There is a special place for people like you in heaven. What a selfless act sir. Thank you. You have helped start the healing process for this family.”

What an amazing moment.

Texans Without Ice Scrapers Got Really Creative To Clear Their Cars

Winter storm Inga is bringing deep snow and freezing conditions to Texas, and while hundreds of  thousands of students are getting the day off, people still need to get to work. 

The problem? No one seems to own an ice scraper. This is Texas, after all. They’re far more accustom to heatwaves than snow storms. That means Texans have had to get pretty inventive when it comes to their morning commute. 

A frisbee is probably going to take you a while…

Some people went with clothes hangers. 

That’s just going to scratch your window…

Some people went with science. 

A key chain will take you hours. 

Gift, credit, and membership cards didn’t go so well for most people…

Others took to Twitter to offer some hacks for the poor Texans. 

Some people from up north weren’t so kind. 

You’ll get through this, Texas.
