Halloween 2017: 5 costumes most commonly searched for on Google

Finding the perfect Halloween costume isn’t always easy. You want your disguise to be timely, but you definitely don’t want to be dressed like everybody else.

>> Read more trending news 

To avoid the embarrassment of looking like half the other people at the Halloween party, it may be best to dress up as something other than the five most Googled costumes of the year.

According to Rare.us, the five costumes that have been searched on Google the most so far this year are as follows: 

1. Wonder Woman

The movie starring Gal Godot raked in more than $400 million at the box office, so it’s no surprise that many people want to look like the superheroine.

2. Harley Quinn

This was the year of the superhero movie with “Wonder Woman,” and the supervillain movie “Suicide Squad” boasted big returns, too, in 2016. Margot Robbie’s performance as Harley Quinn in the latter definitely resonated with viewers -- enough to make her colorful costume among 2017’s top choices.

3. Clown

They’ve always been terrifying, but thanks to the success of the “It” remake, evil clowns are back with a vengeance this Halloween.

4. Moana

Kids and adults alike are clamoring to dress like the latest Disney heroine.

5. Unicorn

In case you’ve forgotten, 2017 was also the year of Starbucks’ infamous Unicorn Frappuccino. It should come as no surprise that everyone wants to be the magical, mythical creature.

The video was posted on the department’s Facebook page, where it has had more than 238,000 views in two days.

Before eventually saying yes, she asked Bowes if he was serious. She then ran over to him crying, hugged him then collapsed in his arms, kissing him.

5 signs you should ask your doctor about depression

A common perception of someone suffering from depression is a person who's sad and/or crying. Although you certainly may feel this way if you're depressed, the illness may also present itself in more subtle ways that you might not expect.

>> Read more trending news 

Depression is a very common illness, with about 16 million adults in the U.S. having at least one major episode of depression in the past year. Despite there being many different types of treatment available, about two-thirds of people with major depression never seek treatment

Sometimes they think they'll "snap out of it" on their own or they may be too embarrassed to address the condition. But delaying treatment could have devastating effects in every area of your life, and at its worst, could result in suicide.

The following five signs are solid indicators that it could be time to talk to your doctor about depression. 

Your mind seems foggy

If you have trouble concentrating or making decisions on an almost-daily basis, Health's website says, this could be a sign of depression. It can cause fuzzy, unfocused thinking that can affect your memory and ability to make good decisions. This could make you forget work deadlines as well as tasks you need to complete at home. At its most extreme, it could even lead you to engage in unhealthy, risky behavior.

You tend to get angry

Although most people probably associate depression with sadness, it can also cause you to feel irritated or angry over things that you would normally shrug off. If you find yourself raging at little things at work and home, you may actually be depressed. This can be especially true of men, Reader's Digest says, who may find it more socially acceptable to express anger rather than sadness when they go through something such as divorce.

You have unexplained pain

The Mayo Clinic says that unexplained pain such as back pain or headaches can sometimes be the first or only sign of depression. In fact, pain and depression can create a vicious cycle. If your depression is causing pain, this can make you further depressed, which increases your pain. In addition, depression-related pain that continues over time can create additional problems such as stress, low self-esteem and difficulty sleeping. Some forms of treatment can help with both pain and depression, while others treat only one condition, so you and your doctor can talk about what's best in your particular case.

Your eating habits have changed

Depression can affect many aspects of your life, including your eating habits. Health says you may experience a loss of appetite as well as a decreased interest in food and cooking. It can also have the opposite effect, making you more likely to try to soothe yourself by binge eating on unhealthy food. In addition, if you normally eat a healthy diet, but find yourself suddenly turning to junk food, you may want to talk to your doctor about depression.

You sleep too much -- or too little

Crawling into bed and escaping into sleep is behavior that may be associated with depression, according to Health. You may find yourself wanting to stay in bed and also escaping into naps when you can during the day. Depression can also cause you to stay awake late at night as you toss, turn and worry. And like many symptoms of depression, sleeping too much or too little can create a vicious cycle. You can feel tired and sluggish from too much sleep, so you may feel even worse, which can make you likely to sleep more or have more trouble getting to sleep at night.

Getting help

The National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) recommends the following tips for getting help:

  • Call 911, go to your local emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 if you're feeling suicidal.
  • If you think your condition is mild to moderate, make an appointment with your primary care physician.
  • If you think your condition is moderate to severe, make an appointment with a specialized doctor such as a psychiatrist.
  • Seek out community support groups, which can serve as valuable tools for help and to know you're not alone in suffering from depression. NAMI can help you find support in your area.

Photographer shows behind-the-scenes shots from Nike photo shoot 30 stories above ground

Sneaker manufacturer Nike recently commissioned a photo shoot to promote its new VaporMax footwear line and hired San Francisco-based photographer Benjamin Von Wong to capture a series of thrilling photos to promote the brand.

To create the essence of an air-filled sneaker, Wong suspended his models off the side of a 30-story skyscraper in downtown Manila, Philippines, to create the illusion that they were flying.

 

Von Wong documented the shoot in a blog post, saying that the models wore form-fitted harnesses clipped by the side so they could “run” along the side of the building. The photographer spent hours in a harness himself, as he needed to be suspended off the roof in order to capture the intense action on film.

Von Wong, who photographed social entrepreneurs and community leaders instead of traditional models and fitness figures, wrote about the experience in detail on his blog

“There was no rulebook on ‘how to hang people from skyscrapers’ or ‘what equipment to use’ and suddenly I found myself locked in a battle between what I wanted to create in my mind and what was actually doable,” Von Wong wrote, before explaining the harnesses used. “Over and over my newly trained models would leap out, pushing themselves and contorting into dynamic positions that would fit the camera’s perspective. As athletes, they were no stranger to pain and repetition making this surprisingly easy despite their lack of experience.”

Von Wong posted photos from the shoot on his blog without the wires photoshopped out because he said “editing the wires out (takes) away from the story.”

“By showcasing everyday people doing extraordinary things, I hope that viewers, will feel empowered to challenge themselves, support others and to pursue amazing life experiences of their own,” he wrote

Check out some of the photos posted on Von Wong’s site:

Family has to pay to get their dog back from Humane Society

A Pennsylvania family was relieved to find their missing dog at a local humane society. 

>> Read more trending news 

Daryl Claypoole said he left his dog, Tubby, outside to go to the bathroom when the animal chewed through his collar and took off.

Claypoole said his family has been upset since Tubby ran and vanished a few weeks ago.

Thanks to social media, the family found out Tubby is at the Butler County Humane Society.

There, he's known as Finn, and Claypoole can't get him back without the right amount of cash.

“Five hundred and fifty-two dollars. I don't have that kind of money. I'm on a fixed income. I just want my dog,” Claypoole said.

Jill Hall, with the Humane Society, said the dog wasn't microchipped, making it harder for them to find the dog's owners.

“Unfortunately, (animals) can't tell us where they belong, so after 48 hours, we get them ready for adoption,” Hall said.

WPXI learned the fee has been reduced from more than $500 to $220.

Claypoole admits he hasn't been to the Humane Society to even identify his dog.

“Because if I do, I'll cause trouble because they won't give me my dog back,” Claypoole said.

“Those vet bills for us are not free. We do have to pay those costs so once an owner comes forward, they do have to incur the cost to reclaim their animal,” Hall said.

They are high school sweethearts who got married on their 6-year dating anniversary.

Baerman said in a Facebook post that Taco Bell was the couple's go-to spot after class in high school.

Skylain told Baerman that they would always scrape together all the quarters Jeffrey had in his car to go eat together after class at Westside High School.

"So what better place to end their wedding day than Taco Bell?" Baerman said on Facebook. "When they told me they were doing this, I immediately invited myself along for the adventure."

Baerman took several photos of the couple inside the Taco Bell near The Avenues, including one with a Hot sauce packet that says "I do."

"They are such a sweet, fun-loving couple and this was the icing on the cake that day," Baerman said. 

Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher say 'no presents for the kids' this Christmas

According to Mila Kunis, she and husband Ashton Kutcher will not be giving their children any Christmas gifts this year, and they’ve asked the children’s grandparents to limit the number of gifts they give.

>> Read more trending news 

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kunis, who is promoting her upcoming movie, “Bad Moms Christmas,” said her upbringing shaped her view and understanding of Christmas. 

“I come from communist Russia, where you’re not allowed to be happy, so my holiday traditions are ‘be quiet,’” Kunis said. “Coming to America is when you realize Christmas has a magical quality to it. In Russia, back in the day, it was a very religious holiday, so you don't celebrate Christmas if you’re not Christian and if you’re not at Mass. So, I being Jewish, was like, ‘Christmas is not for you.’”

Kunis, 34, moved to the U.S. from Ukraine in 1991 at the age of 7

“We come to America and we're like, ‘Christmas is so inclusive,’” Kunis told ET. “We literally bought a Christmas tree. So as far as tradition goes, my family’s big on any excuse to get the family together and get drunk. Whether it's Easter, which we've now all accepted into our Jewish household, or Christmas, it doesn't matter. It's all family time, but having kids, we're building up our own little versions of tradition.”

>> Kristin Cavallari criticized for 'single parent' comment

Kunis, who shares two children with Kutcher -- 3-year-old Wyatt and 1-year-old Dimitri -- said the couple have a new tradition this year.

“No presents for the kids,” she told ET. “We're instituting it this year because when the kids are [around age] 1, it doesn't really matter. Last year when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was 2and it was too much. We didn't give her anything -- it was the grandparents. The kid no longer appreciates the one gift. They don't even know what they're expecting; they’re just expecting stuff.”

Kunis said she and Kutcher have asked their parents to limit the number of gifts they purchase for their grandchildren to one.

“We've told our parents, ‘We’re begging you -- if you have to give her something, pick one gift. Otherwise, we'd like to take a charitable donation to the Children’s Hospital or a pet -- whatever you want.’ That's our new tradition,” she said.
