stay-puftPeople have been fascinated with magical creatures and the supernatural for a very long time. If you look at the most popular stories of mankind, you will realize that most of them are based on fantasy creatures that live side by side with us, humans.

horse-maskHave you seen photos on social media that feature people artfully posed wearing animal masks? These photos are usually heavily filtered and presented as art rather than traditional photographs. They are everywhere on sites like Facebook and Instagram and the trend is not showing any sign of slowing down. These photos can be funny, disturbing, creepy or intriguing but they are rarely boring.

Social media is so choked with photographs every day that it’s easy for photos to get lost in the endless parade of selfies and photos of meals.

Wearing lenses with a Halloween costume can make your costume look a lot more pulled together, and wearing lenses with a costume built for Cosplay is practically essential to get the right look for a character.

Superheroes are naturally loved – in the end, there is no way you will not love the good guys. However, what most of the people out there don’t really know is that most of the nowadays popular superheroes have been created with a deeper meaning as well.
