If you’ve ever considered dressing like Back to the Future’s Marty McFly but didn’t want to track down the puffy red vest, you’re saved! You can go the ultra easy route and just buy a costume t-shirt – it’s almost time for Halloween after all. The t-shirt matches Marty’s clothes and all you have to do to sell it is add a hoverboard. Bonus points if you can find a DeLorean.
Check out the back of the shirt after the break.

We’re all time travelers—we just do it one second at a time. Speaking of time, this shirt is only going to be on sale through today, so jump on it while you can (because we still haven’t figured out that whole traveling to the past thing).

As you probably recall, several members of the Back To The Future cast had to don lots of makeup to look older for the “present” ’80s portion of the movie. Reddit user Native-New-Yawkah posted the above comparison of what the actors looked like with the “aging” movie makeup to make them look 30 years older versus what they actually look like having genuinely aged around 30 years since the movie was made.
All-in-all, it looks like the makeup people were pretty accurate.
Ok, Science Fiction Theater is on tonight so I have to go now. Going to skip the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance to watch it. I have my priorities, thank you.
Save the clock tower, Doc!

You don’t need to be the owner of a DeLorean to appreciate this new Back to the Future t-shirt from Super7! The flaming 88 is a fantastic representation of the critical speed one has to hit to activate the flux capacitor and travel through time.

Ready to experiment with some electronics? MAKE has a kit for you that produces a cool watch with a big laser cut acrylic case. As one reviewer put it, this time piece is the “flux capacitor of watches”. I can definitely see the resemblance.
From the product description:
Solder:Time is an easy to solder real time watch kit with a unique laser cut acrylic casing. Four individual acrylic parts are cut to fit the internal PCB, battery and switch perfectly. Includes a velcro wrist band. After soldering the Solder:Time, the watch is built by stacking the acrylic parts with the PCB and holding it together with the included screws.
Sounds like the perfect project for a beginner. Happy soldering and time traveling!

When you and your wife or husband to be are fans of Back to the Future, there’s only one thing to do for your “save the date” invite: find a DeLorean and don some costumes.
Jarrett and Abbie tracked down the DeLorean through a site that lists owners of the popular car who are willing to rent their time travel devices out for events. Then Abbie found clothes that would fit their requirements at a local Goodwill. She decided to dress like Doc Brown, and Jarrett took on the role of her Marty McFly. They are freaking adorable.
