five four avengers

Clothing company Five Four combines the benefits of a personal stylist and a subscription box service to deliver affordable fashion to your door monthly.

Now, Marvel has teamed up with Five Four to create line of clothing inspired by The Avengers. The clothing line takes cues from characters like Iron Man, Captain America and Thor and works them into subtle, stylish designs.

I don’t know about you, but I personally hate shopping. So, if I can have someone curate $120 worth of clothes for $60 and deliver it to me monthly, with free shipping both ways and easy exchanges? I’d try it.

Head after the break to see more pictures and their intro video.

Canadians know how to make the best of a bad winter. Takhini Hot Springs is up near Whitehorse in northwestern Canada, and it’s a natural hot spring that features an annual tradition that’s been generating a lot of buzz on the Internet.

Every February, the management encourages bathers to wet and style their hair into extravagant hairdos as it freezes. Even during winter, the springs are typically about 96 to 107 F, but the air temp in February is typically around -22 F, which is ideal for frozen hair fashion. Whoever has the most outlandish ‘do is awarded a prize of $150.
