YouTube Wednesday: ‘I’ll Kill You That Way’ the Halloween themed parody for all the Backstreet Boys superfans out there

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an AMAZING new video that will definitely get you in the Halloween spirit! Now I know that we usually discuss channels, not individual videos, but there is so much to discuss with this video that it needs its’ own blog post. If you haven’t seen the ‘Slashstreet Boys -I’ll Kill You That Way’ video by the channel ‘The Merkins’ then be prepared to have your mind blown! I will throw in a quick disclaimer that there is some profanity in this video that may not be appropriate for all ages so please proceed with caution. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

So you may be asking, “What’s the deal with this video?”. Well if you love The Backstreet Boys and/or famous Halloween villains Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Ghostface, Michael Myers, & Leatherface then this is the video you’ve been waiting your whole life for! In this video the guys do an amazing job of changing the lyrics of ‘I Want It That Way’ by The Backstreet Boys into a really funny Halloween themed version that uses lyrics that relate to each of these character’s individual movies. These lyrics provide the perfect Easter eggs (aka hints for those who don’t speak internet) for horror film fans. Also, even though not all of the actors in the video sing, the guys who provided the vocals for this parody have really good voices. I honestly would love to see covers from these guys because their vocals are just that good!

Lastly, I wanted to discuss the meticulous details that this parody video contains. If you are a Backstreet Boys fan then you remember that epic ‘I Want It That Way’ video. I mean we have the airport scenes, the screaming fan scenes, & of course those famous white outfits. Unforgettable right? Well ‘I’ll Kill You That Way’ does an impeccable job of mimicking these scenes as close as possible. In the parody video we get very similar dance moves (only this time split between a airport & the woods), the screaming fans who love our villains, & of course those famous white outfits. If you’re a Backstreet Boys fan then you’ll definitely appreciate the effort put into this video.

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday; we are going to continue our Halloween series by 2015 halloween costumes mix yotube wednesdaytalking about one of the most important parts of Halloween (no not the candy, although that is VERY important), we’re going to talk about Halloween costumes! We’re VERY close to October 31st, so if you don’t already have your Halloween costume ready then these videos will help you out. Most of the videos don’t involve too much extra work, except #1 which involves some sewing. So now let’s get to the costumes! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

3) The first video that we’re going to talk about is the ’30 Last-minute DIY Halloween Costume Ideas’ by CloeCouture, which was uploaded on October 25th, 2014. I really loved this video because it is such a cool and creative video. Most of the costumes are made up of stuff you can either buy or make easily, and there are so many costumes in the video that I’m sure you’ll find something that you’ll fall in love with. Whether you want your costume this year to look cute, unique, or you want to look like your favorite TV/movie/book character or pop culture figure, you’ll find the PERFECT costume for you. Also, the video is EXTREMELY entertaining to watch, so it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss!

 

 

 

2) Next up we have the ‘DIY Last Minute Easy & Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas for Teens’ by Alexa Mae video, which was uploaded on October 16th, 2015. Alexa is a YouTuber that we’ve spoken about before (you can check out that blog post here:YouTube Wednesday: Alexa Mae…the new YouTuber that you will spend your whole spring break obsessing over), and this video just continues to prove what an amazing guru she has become. In this video she shows us how to easily make 3 costumes that will be perfect for anyone who wants a unique/cute look this Halloween. My personal favorite is the popcorn costume, but they’re all AMAZING so definitely check this one out.

 

1) ‘DIY “THE DRESS”/DRESSGATE HALLOWEEN COSTUME’ by TheSorryGirls, which was uploaded on October 15th, 2015. Ok y’all it’s back, THE DRESS. You know the dress that divided the internet, and haunted our nightmares for weeks, yup that dress. As soon as I saw this video I knew that it had to make the list because this costume is just so amazing. It does require some sewing, but this costume is so worth it. If you want a super unique video that will give your friends a laugh this Halloween then definitely check out this video.

YouTube Wednesday: 3 videos that will help you freak everyone out this Halloween

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to do something a little different. I thought that since it’s almost Halloween (Yay!!!!), we could talk about 3 amazing makeup tutorial videos that will help you add that special finishing touch to your costume this year. These videos vary in difficulty, but I would definitely give the looks a test run before Halloween (also make sure that you’re not allergic or have any sensitivity to any of the makeup/wax/etc. that the looks may need). I tried to rate these depending on how difficult the look is to replicate (even though the last two are about equal in terms of difficulty). Now let’s get to the looks. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

3) ‘CLAW WOUND SFX Makeup Tutorial’ by Kait Nichole, which was uploaded on October 12th, 2015. I thought that this would be a good video to kick things off with because it’s a cool way to really make any costume stand out. This look is very detailed so you will have to take your time with this one if you want it to look amazing however, it might be easier to do than the other two looks because it’s on the arm and not the face. In this video Kait does an INCREDIBLE job of explaining exactly how to replicate this wound, so I would definitely give it a try.

2) ‘Reptile Ringmaster Circus Freak Halloween Makeup Tutorial’ by Jordan Hanz, which was uploaded on October 12th, 2015 (I didn’t notice until after I chose the videos that this video and the claw wound video were uploaded on the same day. That’s kind of cool right?). As soon as I saw this look I just completely fell in love with how awesome it is. Now this look is also very detailed so again you have to have patience, but the payoff for the work looks to incredible for words. If you want a unique look that will definitely be Instagram worthy then this is a look to consider. Jordan does a really great job of explaining every step, so even though this may look a little intimidating, just follow her instructions and you’ll look AMAZING.

1) ‘Trippy Double Vision Makeup Look’ by dope2111, which was uploaded on September 17th, 2015. Like I said before, it was EXTREMELY hard to pick a winner for the #1 and #2 spots, but because this is a REALLY different sort of Halloween look, it won. I know that A LOT of you have probably already seen this video, but if you really want a look that will freak out your friends then this is the way to go. This is another look that takes patience to replicate because you want it to look as real as possible. The process is explained so well in this video, so I would definitely give this tutorial a shot. This is a really good look to show off your creativity, because you can build a scary or cute look around it, but still get the creepy factor in either way.

Monday Memos: Top 5 movies to watch this Halloween

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos we’re going to talk about one of the best parts of fall… Halloween movies. Technically we could watch these movies at any point of the year, but there’s just something about fall that makes these movies even better. Now even though there are always new movies that come out during this time of the year, I thought that it would be fun to make a list of 5 Halloween movies that we already know are awesome (and honestly fall would feel empty without). I will say that there won’t be any “horror” or “scary” movies on here because I want to keep the list very family friendly, so you can feel comfortable watching any of these movies with your entire family. So now let’s get to the list! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

5) Pooh’s Huffalump Halloween Movie:

Pooh's_Heffalump_Halloween_MovieWe’re kicking things off with this movie because honestly who doesn’t love Winnie the Pooh. This is a really cute movie that’s story and characters will entertain kids, and give older audiences a kick of nostalgia. The plot has a little suspense but at its’ core is a really sweet story of friendship, and is definitely another classic story in this beloved franchise.

4) Halloweentown:

Now this is a true Disney Channel classic! Every Disney Channel fan knows that once October hits, we’ll get to see p21485_d_v8_aaall 4 Halloweentown movies. I put the 1st one on this list because this is the story that started it all for this franchise. What I love most about this first film is that we are introduced to amazing characters, a really interesting story, but also get a dose of reality because of the characters relationships with each other. I also love that each film switches up the plot and characters, but we still see a lot of the familiar faces that we’ve grown to love.

 

3) Casper:

This is a great movie to watch during October, because it’s funny, the cast does a great job of bring these characters to life, and it will keep you entertained and engaged from beginning to end. this is definitely a film you’ll want to see again and again, and even though the movie originally came out in 1995 (wow!), it still holds up really well today. On a side note, the music in this movie is AMAZING, especially that ending song sung by Little Richard (just check out the video below)!

 

1)E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial:

Of course a Halloween list wouldn’t be complete without ET. This is an iconic film that has an amazing cast that bring these awesome characters to life, a great story, cool music, and is a movie that we’ve all seen but will continue to watch again and again. I had a really had time deciding whether this or the next movie that we’re going to talk about should be #1 so that’s why I’ve left it to you to decide. Let me know on the comments below which film you think should be #1. You can also check out one of the most iconic scenes from the movie below, which happens on…Halloween!

1) It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown:

I honestly had a REALLY hard time choosing between It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown & E.T, because they’re both amazing films, and iconicIts-the-great-pumpkin-Charlie-Brown in their own way. So like I said above, I’ll leave it up to y’all to decide which one is your favorite. This is another AMAZING film that has unforgettable characters, and a story that we continue to fall more in love with every year. With the newest Peanuts movie hitting theaters this year (personally I’m so excited to see it), we continue to see that the Peanuts characters never get old, which is why this movie has a very special place in film history.

This is a really good introduction to Victoria’s channel, because you get a great sense of her personality and style. In this video Victoria goes through the routine in an easy step by step process so we can all easily create her look. You gotta love a YouTube who proves that they know their craft. The next video that we’re going to talk about is Victoria’s ‘How to: Pink Hair and Hair Extensions’ video, which was uploaded on March 23rd, 2014 (you can check out the video below).

YouTube Wednesday: Urbandekaybabe…the newest YouTuber that you will be addicted to in 2015

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss an AMAZING YouTuber that I know y’all will become addicted to. If you love experimenting with cool and new makeup looks, or want to know how to perfectly recreate fun looks (BTW some of these looks are PERFECT for Halloween), then Kayla (aka urbandekaybabe) is the beauty guru for you! I recently discovered her channel, and now I have been replaying her videos for days. Please read on to learn all about urbandekaybabe.

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Kayla’s ‘Spring Inspired Makeup’, which was uploaded on May 8th, 2013 (you can check out the video here: Spring Inspired Makeup ). This video really impressed me because it has a lot of cool information, and Kayla shows that she is already comfortable in front of the camera. I think that a person’s ability to be entertaining on camera is one of the most important things that a successful YouTuber can master, because it’s not easy to show your personality on screen in a way that will interest viewers. The fact that her personality is able to perfectly shine through, helps her make an instant and long-lasting impression that will continue to bring viewers back to her videos, The next video that we’re going to talk about is Kayla’s Zombie Makeup Tutorial, which was uploaded on October 26th, 2013 (you can check out the video right here: Zombie Makeup Tutorial+some scaring! ). This is honestly one of my favorite videos on her channel (and that’s saying a lot because y’all know how much I LOVE hauls…but we’ll talk more about that later). This video will give you the PERFECT zombie look for Halloween that will impress your friends at any party, and emotionally scar young children (oh but make sure that you’re careful because some of the ingredients could cause allergic reactions to some people, or cause skin damage when you try to remove it. Just make sure that your skin can handle the ingredients BEFORE you put it on your face, and if you are under 18, ask your parents before you try this). I really love how this look seems so real and difficult to do, but if you follow this video, you should be able to replicate it pretty easily. There are also a few other cool Halloween style looks on Kayla’s channel, so definitely check those out if you want to wow all your friends in October!

 

The next video that we’re going to talk about is Kayla’s ‘Huge Haul’ video (oh you knew a haul video was coming!). This video was uploaded on January 31st, 2014, and you can check out the video right here: HUGE Haul!- Michael Kors, Forever 21+ More! . As much as I love haul videos, I really really love BIG haul videos! I really love that these kinds of videos allow you to “shop” without having to actually spend money, and you can discover new sales, products, and stores that you might have never known about otherwise. Another reason why I like watching haul videos when I’m looking for YouTubers to profile on here, is because it’s not for everyone to just sit, talk about what they bought, and keep their audience engaged in the video the entire time. I think that if you have the ability to do this, then there is a big chance that you can become a YouTube star. Kayla is a perfect example of this, because she is able to keep you interested in what she is saying, and before long you completely forget how long you’ve been watching the video (and this particular video is a little over 21 minutes long, so you know she has to be interesting to hold our attention for that long). Lastly, I really love that Kayla showcases a variety of stores and products/styles in her hauls, because this will help her better connect with her viewers. I think that a true guru is able to show how you can make a variety of styles and looks work, and Kayla does this perfectly! The last video that we’re going to talk about is her ‘Lazy Day Hairstyles’ video, which was uploaded on January 23rd, 2015 (you can find a link to it here: Lazy Day Hairstyles ). I really like that this video shows cute hair styles that are different than your typical pony tail or top kit, but are also simple enough to complete in a short period of time. With winter now upon us, it can be hard to get up early and fix your hair in a cute style for work or school (I mean we would all rather take the extra time to sleep and pray for a snow day right?). These hair styles will spice up any outfit (so you can spend less time searching through your closet and more time sleeping…yay!), and is the perfect way to really shake up your winter style. So now that you’re completely obsessed with Kayla’s channel (because you know you are), please subscribe to her on YouTube, and look below too follow her various social media accounts.
