What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

My coverage on viral culture has launched careers. I profiled Ben Lashes, which gave him a huge boost in recognition and business.

50 last-minute Halloween costumes — Remember about 10 months ago, when you swore that this would be the year that you finally get your act together and plan a Halloween costume ahead of time? Yeah. There's always 2015. If you've found yourself panicked because you waited until the last minute to select a costume, don't worry.

12 Halloween costumes you can make in 5 minutes or less — Time to start sweating, slackers. Halloween has arrived and you still don't have a costume. Whether you unintentionally procrastinated or unexpected plans came up this week, don't fret. Though it's probably too late to make a contest-winning costume, you still have time to make the simplest of costumes (or you could express ship a simple Halloween hoodie).

13 lessons in brunch etiquette from Waffles the cat — Brunch is a sacred experience that you slobs are ruining with your Instagrams and tardiness. Listen, we all make a little overenthusiastic plans on Saturday night. But you could at least have the common decency to follow through with the simplest of tasks the next morning: eating delicious food with your friends.

Game of Bones Is the Best Halloween Costume in All of Westeros — A dog who fights for bones cannot afford to lose to the other dogs. That's not the case for the costumed pups in Game of Bones, a tribute to Daenerys Targaryen and her baby dragons. The set was created by the dogs' humans, Samantha Watt, Cynthia Martin and Dorothy Barnard of Dallas, Texas.

2014 Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade — New York's finest pups marched around in their best costumes Saturday for the 24th annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade. Presented by Beggin' Strips dog treats, the event featured hundreds of pooches dressed up in creative costumes. Top dog wins "Best in Show" and total bragging rights at the dog park.

These Vintage Halloween Costumes Will Scare the Sheet Out of You — In an era of body modifications, animatronic masks and advanced cosplay, it's worth remembering that sometimes all you need to generate a sensation of utter terror is a pumpkin, a sheet and a very long stick.

This Dog Can Do Tricks Better Than Any Human — Trick-or-treating is too easy. Here at Mashable HQ, you have to earn your candy. Jesse the Jack, a talented Jack Russell Terrier with skills (and YouTube views) that put us all to shame, has a new way to trick or treat.

5,000 Carved Pumpkins Twinkle at Rise of the Jack-o'-Lanterns — The Great Pumpkin can't hold a (tea-light) candle to these Jack-o'-Lanterns. The RISE of the Jack-o'-Lanterns in Westbury, New York puts on a stunning display of more than 5,000 professionally carved pumpkins. And that doesn't even include the replacements carved each week - since, you know, pumpkins tend to rot.

Pasties and Purrs: Internet Cat Inspires Burlesque Dancer — Internet cats have inspired a lot of things, including a burlesque routine. In a little more than two years of practicing the art, Melody Magpie, who requested to be addressed by her stage name, has incorporated strange, Internet-centric themes into the traditional strip-tease stylings of burlesque.

21 Cosplayers Doing Everyday Things — Nothing to see here, folks - it's just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, enjoying a six-inch sub. Even superheroes need a break from fighting crime, and cosplayers need a break from posing for pictures and walking the massive convention center at New York Comic Con.

@evanengel a better idea would be to incorporate pharrell’s hat into one of those hats that has crazy straws and holds your drink for you.
