Dad For A Day

You can find pretty much anything you want on Craig’s List. From roommates to jobs to casual encounters – if the world is your oyster, then Craig’s List provides all the necessary diving equipment to get said oyster.

Most Craig’s List ads are pretty reasonable and straightforward. Looking for a house to swap for vacation? They have you covered! Looking for a plumber? They got you covered! Looking for a hot date? I mean, I would think you are better off just going on Tinder, but screw it! They’ve got you covered in the matchmaking department, too.

Looking for a stand-in actor to help realize your dream of throwing the BEST DAMN BARBECUE EVER? Craig’s List even has that.

Awhile back, a group of 20-somethings in Washington had a plan to throw the best damn barbecue west of the Mississippi. Having all the proper grilling equipment, food, music, yard games, and beer, they realized they were missing one crucial element: a dad.

You see, no BBQ is complete without the good ol’ American “pops” hovering over the burgers, claiming his status as Grill Master and giving the ol’ friendly arm-punch as his kid’s friends walk by. Dads are a necessary commodity in the grill-and-chill arena, which is why this group of guys decided they needed to recruit someone to fill that void.

So, they posted an ad on Craig’s List in search for that perfect “generic dad” to attend their soirée. And the job qualifications were just as hysterical as the overall concept.

Cosplay to Cos-Pro

Cosplay has been a practice among enthusiasts since 1990, and the amount of people getting involved in this form of role-playing seems to be steadily growing every year.

It makes sense that it would be so enthralling for some. First and foremost, people loooooove their comic books, video games, and anime. Secondly, you get to dress up, interact with like-minded people, and get to be your very own avatar. It’s like Halloween for kids. Or dungeons and dragons for teenagers. Cosplay is a form of escape that lets you carry out the fantasies you probably wouldn’t be able to do in everyday life. (Or maybe do, but I would imagine it would be hard keeping a job).

As more people become involved in Cosplay, it’s become increasingly more competitive. However, advances in technology have given some participants an advantageous edge. Take this Cosplay champion who took his role VERY seriously. The results are nothing short of impressive.
