Valentine’s Day – Tips, Advice and Some Fun Facts

intertwined-heart-locket-valentines-day1

Hey ladies and gentlemen, as you know Valentine’s Day is coming up soon (February 14th, as it is every year), if you forgot, then you owe me a big thanks as I have just potentially save your butt… just as someone saved mine last night!

Anyways before we proceed, has anyone ever thought about what Valentine’s Day is or how it was started? If you have ever thought about such a thing, here is a brief bit of history for your curious mind.

The first ever record of Valentine was in the early rise of Christianity in the Roman Empire, where several priest and bishops named Valentine (popular Roman name maybe?) became martyrs for religious cause. It wasn’t until almost a thousand years later in the Middle Ages, a misinterpretation of Geoffry Chaucer’s poem “Parlement of Foules” set the date of Valentine’s on the 14th of February.

As time progress, the name Valentine became more associated with love, in 14th century France, a court of love was established on Valentine’s Day to deal specially with marriage and love affair laws. In the early 18th century, the practice of writing notes to love ones or potential love ones became very popular in the New world and England, which soon gave way to specially made cards just for Valentine’s Day. Finally in 1969, the Catholic Church officially recognized St Valentine’s Day.

Well, that’s that for the history of Valentine’s Day. I am sure most of you (mostly guys) are scratching your head trying to plan out a perfect date for that special someone. I’ve looked around online at sites for dating tips, but to honest, most of them are those generic “send flower to the table”, “get her jewelry” or “play romantic music and eat at your place with candles” type of deal. I can totally imagine some poor guy making this perfect romantic dinner for the woman he likes, and yet during the whole “romantic” dinner they sit silently and awkwardly… what a way to bomb the date and not get another one!

Now I am no dating expert, but the points that I feel will be the most important is your confidence and knowing your partner well. First you should be confident in yourself; if you can get a date with him or her on Valentine’s Day then you are already set! No need to stress out on how to impress your date, be yourself and be fun, stop pretending to be someone else because that will save you a lot of grief in the long run when you can’t pretend anymore.

Don’t be so serious, I am sure everyone wants to either have fun or relax and have a good time, not to be uptight all night. If something does goes wrong like losing your reservation at the restaurant or getting lost, go with it! You are out to have a good time why are you stressing out? I would rather take a fun dinner over Wendy’s than a strict silent and awkward dinner at some upscale restaurant.

For the single people out there, no worries. No one said you need to have a date on Valentine’s Day; it’s just another day in a long year! If you are having trouble finding a date, just remember be confident, stop trying to impress others- the people that needs to be impressed aren’t worth it for you. As long as you respect, love yourself and dress accordingly, people will dig you!

Last but not least, for the couples that are already quite familiar with each other, some Valentine’s costumes will spice things up a bit (in the bedroom yayuhh) only if you are into that kind of stuff. Costume SuperCenter has some of the largest selection of sexy costumes for him and her just for occasions like this, so check them out!

Have a fun and happy Valentine’s Day!

Twilight: Teenagers and Vampires!

Twilight movieTo be honest, I have not heard much about this teenage obsession with vampires, and I have no clue what physical traits makes vampires so romantic. Must be them fangs, or the pale skins, or in the case of Twilight, the fact that they can climb trees really quickly with a girl on their back.

However, this past weekend I’ve had the opportunity to go check this much hyped up movie along with a friend, and I admit I quite enjoyed it. What I was really expecting was the typical “chick” flick like the Notebook or A Walk to Remember… with vampires. Maybe instead of romantic walks by the beach or enjoying beautiful scenery with the him and her, he bites her in the neck? :-p But it was more mature, more intense, and overall a very enjoyable movie. For those of you who have yet to seen it, the movie is about a high school girl named Bella Swan falling for a mysterious young man named Edward Cullen (what a cool name) who happens to possess some very unique traits. You can read the plot here on Twilight wiki, but I won’t spoil it for you.

Unlike most love stories, the ending climax build up of this movie got me on the edge of my seat, it was that good- and that means a lot coming from a horror zombie movies and Scifi action movies fan such as myself. Some things I found strange or not so well done in the movie is that Robert Pattinson who portrayed Edward was a little awkward at times. In his restraint to bite someone for blood, his portrayal of restraint and pain looked a bit like someone had rummaged through his pants. Another minor point is that his idea of a good date is to take Bella on a tree climb while she is on his back… but then again I was told by a friend that she find it hot as well 😦

Overall this movie is very good! It seems the movie follows the novel quite well, but the novel is more in depth and detailed. The next movie based on the 2nd novel is called New Moon and is rumored to be due some where in 2009, I think I will definitely check those out as well. Someone has asked me recently how the Twilight movie compares with Harry Potter. Well, those two can’t be compared as they are completely different! This is a very good movie in its own right, and gives off a completely different mature vibe than any other teenage movies out there. So if you haven’t seen it or your kids are bugging you to see it, I think you should oblige or do yourself a favor and watch it.

Last but not least, being the Costume SuperCenter blog after all, it is my duty to inform you all that unlike me, Costume SuperCenter is ahead of the curve when it comes to the vampire trends as well. From Vampire accessories such as fangs and blood, Costume SuperCenter has a huge variety of Teen and vampire costumes both in the traditional gothic sense or very modern and trendy like Twilight. So make us your store for all vampire costume needs! Also, if you have the time, be sure to check out the Twilight novel series, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn, I’ve heard they are all very good!
