Happy birthday to Mary Shelley, the author of the novel Frankenstein. In honor of her birthday, we celebrate FRANKENSTEIN DAY nationwide! Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein when she was only 18 years old, and published the final copy in 1818, at the age of 19. Since then, Frankenstein has spawned a whole new genre of monster flicks, horror stories, and remains a classic in literature and popular culture.
Pay tribute to this classic monster with some of our Frankenstein costume ideas.
Who can forget him in the holiday film we all know and love, Home Alone? Best known for portraying Kevin McCallister in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Macaulay Culkin was, at the height of his fame he was regarded as the most successful child actor since Shirley Temple. He was also considered one of the late entertainer Michael Jackson’s best friends. Culkin began acting at the age of four. Early roles saw him appearing in a stage production of Bach Babies at the New York Philharmonic. He continued appearing in roles on stage, television, and in films throughout the 1980s. Notable parts in this period included an episode of the popular action series The Equalizer in which he played the victim of a kidnapping, and also in the TV movie The Midnight Hour. He also appeared in the movie Uncle Buck in which his character probed John Candy’s title character over his background on the basis that “I’m a kid – that’s my job”.
One of my favorite movies,
Based on the rise and fall of infamous New York party promoter Michael Alig. The movie stars Macaulay Culkin as the drug-addled “King of the Club Kids.” The film is based on Disco Bloodbath, the memoir of James St. James which details his friendship with Alig, that later fell apart as Alig’s drug addiction worsened, and ended after he murdered Angel Melendez and went to prison.
