Some say that "Life is Better in Costume," and those who adhere to that mantra are, indeed, correct. It's fun to play dress-up, and fostering imaginative play with my girls is something that I've spoken of often here on THE ROCK FATHER. But you don't have to be a kid to play dress-up, and the legions of cosplayers and casual fans that gear-up for comic-cons and special events year-round are a testament to that. And, so what if Halloween is still two weeks away? There's nothing that says a grown man can't hit the town dressed as Batman (just ask Ben Affleck, who's been roaming Detroit along with Henry Cavill shooting BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE), to the surprise, delight, and in some cases, confusion of those whom he may encounter. That's why this month, THE BATROCKFATHER BEGINS RISES.

And like that, Labor Day is finally behind us and #OrangeTuesday has arrived! What is Orange Tuesday, you ask? It's the new Black Friday - the official start to the Halloween Season, and that day is today. It's true, I'm an unapologetic fan of Fall and Halloween (I was an October baby), and my little ones are turning out to be as well (that picture up top is Addie at just 14 months back in 2010). In fact, as far as I'm concerned, Halloween is the #1 Holiday of the year with Christmas it's only A-list partner (my wife said I couldn't mark the boxes with Easter & Valentine's stuff as "B-List Holiday Decor"). 2014 is particularly special, as the folks at BuyCostumes have invited me to join their crew for the next ten weeks - bringing you more frightfully-good seasonal content than ever before, with spook-tacular goodies from BuyCostumes peppered on top of my already fang-tastic treats for the year. Yeah, I'm a bit punny - but it's Orange Tuesday, so let's celebrate with a jump on the Halloween Shopping Season. Are you ready?
Here's a little food for thought: Halloween is less than three months away. In fact, September 2 is "Orange Tuesday," which is the kick-off to Halloween (think of it as a spookier Black Friday), and if your family is thinking of getting in on the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES action, now is the time to do it. Regardless of Halloween coming soon, I'm always preaching the Gospel of dress-up and imaginative play, and with a few weeks left before Back-to-School, there's plenty of time to let the imagination run wild, and when it comes to TMNT, my friends at BuyCostumes.com are getting all the new styles in - not only for kids, but for grownups, too! They've even got styles from both the Nickelodeon animated series and the new Paramount Pictures live-action film. Personally, I could see both of my offspring running around fighting evildoers in those girls TMNT tutu sets they're selling. Preview some of the new styles below...
Summer is a prime time to unplug and let the imagination run wild, and with that, I'm always big on dress-up play. Right now (while supplies last) my affiliate, BuyCostumes has a crazy deal on a GREEN LANTERN costume - perfect for your little member of DC Comics' GREEN LANTERN CORPS. Want a full uniform for under $7 Bucks??! Yep, I said it was a "crazy" deal, and right now you can score a $60 costume for $6.50.
