NEW YEARS EVE CENTRAL
SantaCon is more than just dressing up in Christmas attire and getting wasted (even though that's the best part of it). In most cities, like New York, SantaCon is affiliated with charitable good works and donations. In 2011, Santacon New York raised $10,000 for Toys for Tots and donated over 6,000 pounds of food to Manhattan and Brooklyn food banks. SantaCon reminds us to have a good time and celebrate the season, but also to spread cheer and goodwill.

Between news about the latest gadgets and tech, Gizmodo is known for hosting some really creative shooting challenges for amateur and professional photographers alike. As seasons and trends change, so do the challenges. Since New Year’s Eve is a celebration of light in places all around the world, it only seemed natural that editors would issue forth a challenge to photographers who happen to be celebrating. The challenge, fittingly enough, involved a technique that became pretty popular during 2011. Photographers were challenged to capture the evening using the long exposure method, for 15 seconds to 30 minutes.
Dazzling dress, sparkling stilettos, classic clutch; your New Year’s Eve outfit is the perfect opportunity to show off that body you’ve been working on all year! On the other hand, you may not be quite ready to commit to that inevitable “get fit” resolution until the New Year is official. Regardless, it’s time to flaunt your best assets. Here are some tips, tricks, and product suggestions to make sure your perfect look is just that.
Going sleeveless is a fabulous way to show off great, toned arms. A dress with straps that curve slightly inward will accentuate and reveal more shoulder. If you’re loving the one-shoulder look, seek out one that falls just below the shoulder blades to reveal that most definition of your upper back.
