What is ethika.

Five pairs of Ethika underwear laid on top of one another.

Ethika has some of the most colorful and dynamic printed underwear we’ve ever seen.

Ethika currently offers a range of wardrobe basics from pants and shirts, to hoodies, socks, and accessories, but the brand is most notable for its performance underwear. The brand sports a wide range of underwear in men’s, women’s, and children’s styles, including boxer briefs, trunks, boxers, sports bras, bikinis, thongs, panties, and more.

Underwear at Ethika is priced at a premium, with most men’s styles starting at $25 and increasing in price to $42, and women’s styles ranging from $10 to $28.

What I tested from Ethika

Product image of Premium Modal – Black – The Staple

These boxer briefs are soft, comfortable, and wash well.

Product image of ANYO – The Staple

This fun and colorful boxer brief features a playful smile print.

Product image of Marble Angelo – The Mid

These super rad printed trunks were my favorite of the bunch.

Product image of SubZero Performance – Blue – The Staple

Although they do leave you feeling cooler, the SubZero style isn’t one that I’d revisit.

Product image of Empire Yellow – The Alternate

If every pair of boxers I owned were this comfortable, I’d never wear anything else.

What I like about Ethika

On the left is a close-up of the Marble Angelo print from Ethika, and on the right is a product shot of the ANYO print against a blue background.

These prints aren’t just bold, they’re legitimately comfortable.

They’re incredibly comfortable

A pair of undies is only as successful as it is comfortable. Sure enough, each of the offerings that I tested out from Ethika were supremely soft to the touch and a joy to wear. The fabric moves well with your body, remaims dry and supportive throughout the day, and best of all, it stays put.

I tend to prefer a shorter trunk style over a longer more athletic fit when it comes to boxer briefs. However, the Staple was an absolute highlight of my test. Although they’re longer than I typically gravitate toward, the Staple felt great against my skin and was hidden beneath anything I wore. The Alternate, a boxer-style pair, was my go-to model to wear to sleep, arguably when comfort matters the most.

There’s a print for everyone

The first thing you’ll notice upon scrolling through the Ethika website is just how many prints the brand offers. From trendy styles in Barbie pink to officially licensed prints from sports teams, to artistic renderings—and of course, classic solids, too—there is a print for everyone at Ethika. I relished the seemingly endless scroll when I was selecting which pairs to test out, and ultimately fell in love with the Marble Angelo print. And, wouldn’t you know it, the print looked even better in real life than it does on the website.

The colorful designs hold up well after multiple washes

I almost always choose solid-colored underwear over anything that has a colorful print. I love a fun print in an unexpected place as much as the next guy, but I also hate that feeling when those vibrant colors begin to fade after the first wash. I was nervous the first time I washed my Ethika haul because I assumed that surely all of them would get dingy before I even had the chance to wear them. However, after weeks of repeated wears and repeated washings, these prints are as vibrant and colorful as they were the day I unpacked them.

What I don’t like about Ethika

On the left is a shot of five pairs of Ethika waistbands on one top of one another, and on the right is a product shot of a black boxer briefs with blue waistband and details.

I wasn’t a big fan of the SubZero Performance Staple.

The “cooling” fabric of the SubZero Performance Staple

I was excited to try on the SubZero Performance Staple that Ethika sent me. The fabric is “Hyper Cooling,” and purports to lower the temperature of your undercarriage. And while the cooling feature was welcome in the midst of a record-breaking summer heatwave, I found the fabric of that particular style to be less than comfortable. They felt tighter and scratchier than the other pairs I tested. Each time I put on the SubZero's, I’d change out of them rather quickly, opting for comfort over coolness.

They’re pretty pricey, per pair

So, when it comes time to pay for premium underwear, I often cringe at the thought of paying $30+ for a single boxer brief. The Staple in the Premium Modal was even more egregious at $42. They’re comfortable and well-made but could be inaccessible to some shoppers.

Is Ethika worth it?

On the left is a pair of yellow boxers, and on the right is a close-up of the waistbands of five pairs of Ethika underwear.

I’d absolutely buy these comfortable undies again and again.

I love Ethika’s stylish and durable underwear. The styles aren’t just comfortable, they’re made beautifully and feel like they’ll last much longer than the discounted pairs in my beloved multipacks. I am seriously impressed by how well the colors hold up after being laundered, and am even looking forward to picking up a few extra pairs of the Alternates to add to my sleepwear arsenal. They can be pricy, but in my opinion, the expense is absolutely worth it.

TikTok Ghostface mask trend explained: The spicy BookTok trend meaning

1 November 2023, 09:24

Who Bumped Who? The Viral Debate ANALYSED

By Katie Louise Smith

Facebook share

"POV: You saw that one Ghostface video and immediately text your husband."

Listen to this article

If you've seen countless videos of people asking their partners to buy Ghostface masks on your TikTok FYP recently, you can thank the spicy corner of 'BookTok' for that particular trend.

Over the past few weeks, and in the build up to Halloween, TikTokers who are part of the 'BookTok' community have been sharing their partner's reactions after texting them to bring home the iconic Scream killer mask for an unspecified reason.

As a result, the viral videos have prompted thousands to pop up in the comments asking what the hell is going on. Well, the trend, as you've probably guessed based on the videos themselves, is all to do with couples spicing up what happens in the bedroom.

Here's how the whole thing became a trend...

What does the Ghostface mask trend mean on TikTok?

Ghostface mask trend goes viral on TikTok thanks to BookTok

BookTok, in case you're not familiar, is a huge part of TikTok where users share their favourite reads with others. One particular side of BookTok features several creators who recommend erotica novels, a.k.a. spicy romance books.

The trends of "masks" and "mask kinks" have been a popular talking point with BookTok fans, with countless videos popping up of recommended books and cosplayers, and now it seems to be taking off with Ghostface at the front and centre.

One video, shared by @annaleegrace15, has had over 6.4 million views, and features the caption: "POV: You saw that one ghostface video and immediately text your husband."

The video being referred to appears to be from a user named Laura (@elitereading), who posted a video of her husband doing the infamous BookTok door frame lean while wearing the Ghostface mask.

Since then, countless other users have tried texting their own partners asking them to bring home a Ghostface mask so they can role-play and try out the trend for themselves.

Of course, the trend is not for everyone – and that's fine! Some people who have never encountered the spicy BookTok side of TikTok seem to think that the trend is a bit too TMI.

But others are clearly loving it, and love watching the responses people are getting from their partners who either have no idea what's going on, or are figuring in real time exactly what's going on.

So, if you start seeing an alarming amount of Ghostface thirst edits on your FYP this Halloween (and not just the usual Billy Loomis ones)... now you know why. BookTok strikes again!

If you're a fan of the Scream movies (and are anxiously awaiting the new Scream in January) then hello, dear friend, have you been on TikTok? The main antagonist of Scream — Ghostface — is all over the social media app with the hashtags #Ghostface and #Ghostfacecult . While it's just a harmless social media trend and not a real cult, it's something worth considering if you're on the platform. Essentially, TikTok users are changing their profile pictures (and sometimes their usernames) to Ghostface and following others who have Ghostface profile pictures, too. The result is gaining users hundreds to thousands of new followers, and it's quite smart, actually.

This isn't the first social media cult to take over TikTok , and it certainly won't be the last. The cults are a quick burn, but dang, is the flame vibrant! If you're interested in hopping in on the trend, then we suggest you do so ASAP as it's appropriately timed for spooky season . Check out other users who are part of the Ghostface cult ahead, and give it a try for yourself to see if you gain a following.

The 'Scream' Character Ghostface Is All Over TikTok Ahead of the New Movie

The Ghostface Cult is just the latest cult to take over TikTok, but why are people changing their profile pictures to the 'Scream' character's face?

Oct. 25 2021, Published 11:34 a.m. ET

Thanks to a 25-year legacy, Ghostface , the masked killer from the Scream franchise, has proven to be an enduring character. Although the internet barely existed when the first Scream movie came out, Ghostface has now gained a cult following on TikTok . Thankfully, that cult following is a pretty harmless way to pay homage to a fictional serial killer.

What is the Ghostface Cult on TikTok?

TikTok cults are not a new thing, and all they typically involve is changing your profile picture so that it reflects whatever the latest cult is. Right now, that cult happens to be the Ghostface Cult, which involves changing your profile picture to an image of Ghostface from the Scream franchise. Once you change your profile picture, other members of the cult will seek you out and follow you. Users can gain hundreds or even thousands of followers this way.

The Ghostface Cult is well-timed, as it coincides with the celebration of Halloween in the US. Many are also changing their profile picture in the wake of the trailer for the newest installment in the series, which is simply titled Scream and is set to debut in January of 2022. The franchise has already produced four movies since the first one premiered in 1996.

Here's how you can participate in the Ghostface Cult.

Thankfully, participating in the Ghostface Cult is a relatively straightforward process. All you need to do is change your profile picture to the image of Ghostface that most people are using, and you may also want to change your username to something spookier if you're really hoping to go all out. Then, all you need to do is follow accounts that have the same profile picture as yours.

As you begin to follow more people on the platform, the idea is that you will also receive a significant number of followers in return. That's typically how these cults have worked in the past, and it's generally led to increased follower counts across TikTok. You may not want to see videos from all of your new follows, but that's a problem you can deal with another day.

@scream.cult_leader This is a revolution #pfpcult #fyp #fypシ #foryoupage #ghostface #scream #funny ♬ papi - quackxyyy

This is not the first TikTok cult to dominate the platform.

Although the Ghostface Cult may seem like a totally distinct phenomenon, but it's actually just the latest iteration of a long line of cults that have dominated TikTok. In the past, those trends have focused on everything from anime characters to horchata , but each one burns brightly on the platform for a few days and then dies down as a new cult or trend rises to take its place.

Cults are somewhat separate from the trends that often dominate the actual videos that are posted on the platform. Both are trends that tend to burn bright and then burn out, though, and it seems like cults will remain a part of TikTok far into the future. Just like TikTok itself, the cults are probably part of the new internet reality.

Ghostface still making Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox ‘Scream’ in relaunch’s new trailer

Ghostface is back and ready to make his victims run, bleed and — of course — scream in the new “Scream” trailer.

Released Tuesday, the preview features Wes Craven’s iconic horror-film antagonist terrorizing people who were related to the subversive franchise’s original killers.

And while 2022’s “Scream” installment features a new cast of tech-savvy Gen Z-ers, it also hails the return of the four-film series’ original stars (at least those whose characters survived): Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott, David Arquette’s lawman Dewey Riley and Courteney Cox’s journalist Gale Weathers.

The fifth “Scream” is set 25 years after the streak of brutal murders shook up Woodsboro, and the new trailer opens with the scary-movie sequence reminiscent of the original films, which began with 1996’s “Scream.”

In it, an unsuspecting girl named Tara (Jenna Ortega) gets a landline call and corresponding text messages from the omniscient stalker — then sees her smart-phone tech turn against her as Ghostface emerges at her door to slash her belly.

But Sidney Prescott, “who’s been though this — a lot,” is on the case, bringing in her guns, wits and reluctant friends back to Woodsboro to face off with this latest slasher.

“Whatever his link is to our past, it’s pulled us all back here. And I won’t sleep until he’s in the ground,” she says, as the new killer racks up a body count in the trailer.

Appreciation: Wes Craven was a master of genre and reinvention

Fittingly for someone so closely associated with two enduring, ongoing movies series, Wes Craven had a knack for reinvention.

The person donning the white mask targets a group of teenagers “to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past,” according to Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group, which will release the long-gestating film on Jan. 14, 2022.

“Scream” is co-directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and also stars Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Sonia Ammar.

Kevin Williamson, who created characters for the original four films and wrote three of them, serves as executive producer this time around. James Vanderbilt (“Zodiac,” “White House Down,” “Murder Mystery”) and Guy Busick (“Castle Rock,” “Ready or Not”) wrote the new script.

What Are The Roots Of Ghostface Tattoos

Ghostface tattoos trace their roots back to the cinematic debut of Ghostface, the primary antagonist of the ‘Scream’ series, which premiered in 1996. This film franchise, created by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven, reinvigorated the horror genre, and its unique, haunting mask became a staple of pop culture iconography. This distinctive design lent itself naturally to body art, marking the birth of Ghostface tattoos.

In the early years, Ghostface tattoos were predominantly simple, direct representations of the character, mainly echoing its iconic black-and-white mask. However, as tattoo artistry evolved and diversified, so did the designs of Ghostface tattoos. Artists started experimenting with different styles, blending elements from traditional, neo-traditional, and realistic tattoo styles to create unique renditions of the iconic character.

Over time, this evolution in style and approach led to the incorporation of various elements into Ghostface designs, turning them into intricate pieces of body art. Some artists began to incorporate darker themes, such as bloody knives or other menacing elements, while others chose a more humorous or abstract approach, offering fresh interpretations of the classic character.

In recent years, we’ve seen an increased blending of themes, with Ghostface tattoos being combined with floral motifs, humorous elements, and even heart symbols, offering a fresh and sometimes softer take on the character. This evolution mirrors the broader trend in the tattoo industry of reimagining traditional symbols or characters in contemporary, creative ways.

Moreover, the increase in the popularity of horror movie-inspired tattoos has seen more individuals opting for Ghostface designs as a tribute to the ‘Scream’ series and the horror genre more broadly. As such, the Ghostface tattoo, much like the character it represents, has evolved and adapted over time, reflecting changing trends and individual artistic interpretations.

9 Key Styles When Creating A Ghostface Tattoo

  • Traditional or Old School Style : This style uses bold lines and a distinct color palette (often bright and highly contrasted). Ghostface tattoos in this style might resemble a classic sailor tattoo but would represent the iconic horror character.
  • Neo-Traditional Style : An evolution of the traditional style, this style maintains the use of bold lines and vivid colors but incorporates a broader range of themes and designs. This technique allows for more creativity in the interpretation of Ghostface.
  • Realism or Photorealistic Style : This style is used to create hyper-realistic renditions of the Ghostface mask or the character in action. It requires great precision and skill on the part of the tattoo artist.
  • Blackwork Style : This technique uses deep black ink to create striking and bold designs. A Ghostface tattoo in this style could range from a solid black silhouette to an intricate patterned design.
  • Trash Polka Style : This is a contemporary style of tattooing that combines realism with abstract elements, typically in a black and red color scheme. A Ghostface tattoo in this style might juxtapose a realistic image of the Ghostface mask with abstract shapes or smears.
  • Dotwork or Pointillism Style : This method uses dots of ink to create the design. In a Ghostface tattoo, this technique could be used to render shading or texture in the mask or background elements.
  • Illustrative Style : Combining elements of various styles, this technique brings an illustrative, often story-like quality to the design. Ghostface tattoos in this style might incorporate scenes from the ‘Scream’ movies or other related imagery.
  • Watercolor Style : This style imitates the fluid, vibrant aesthetics of watercolor painting. A Ghostface tattoo in this style could feature washes of color in the background or within the character itself for a dreamy, artistic effect.
  • New School Style : Known for its exaggerated features, vivid colors, and cartoon-like designs, this style can provide a more humorous or quirky take on the Ghostface character.

Each style has its unique attributes and may resonate differently depending on individual aesthetic preferences and the personal significance of the tattoo. An experienced and creative tattoo artist can also combine styles to create a customized Ghostface design that best suits the client’s vision.

7 Tips To Make Your Ghostface Tattoo Unique To You

Ghostface tattoos, like all forms of body art, serve as a personal canvas for self-expression. They can narrate individual stories, symbolize personal philosophies, or pay tribute to the cultural impact of the ‘Scream’ franchise. Here’s how:

  • Tribute to the Horror Genre : For many, a Ghostface tattoo is a tribute to their love of the horror genre. It may represent their appreciation for the suspense, thrill, and adrenaline rush that comes with watching horror films.
  • Nostalgia and Cultural Impact : For others, it may symbolize nostalgia for the ’90s when the ‘Scream’ franchise was at its peak. It serves as a nod to a time when horror films were reinventing themselves, with Ghostface becoming a cultural icon.
  • Facing Fears : Ghostface could also serve as a symbol of facing one’s fears. Much like the characters in the movies must confront their terror, a Ghostface tattoo could represent a person’s resilience, bravery, or their triumph over personal adversities.
  • Dual Nature : The Ghostface mask can represent the dual nature of human beings – the face we show to the world versus our true selves underneath. It could be a philosophical statement about identity, humanity, and the masks we all wear.
  • Dark Humor : Given the ‘Scream’ franchise’s blend of horror and dark humor, a Ghostface tattoo might also express a person’s appreciation for this unique mix. It could indicate a knack for finding humor even in the darkest of situations.
  • Personal Significance : Some individuals may have personal connections or experiences tied to the ‘Scream’ franchise or the Ghostface character. A Ghostface tattoo, in this case, can serve as a symbol of these personal stories or memories.
  • Artistic Expression : Finally, from an aesthetic standpoint, a Ghostface tattoo can be a canvas for expressing one’s artistic preferences. Whether it’s a particular style (traditional, neo-traditional, realism, etc.) or thematic elements (horror, gore, humor, etc.), the design can reflect the wearer’s artistic tastes and philosophies.

Ultimately, the meaning of a Ghostface tattoo, like any tattoo, is deeply personal and can vary greatly from person to person. It’s a form of expression that allows the individual to convey their unique story or perspective in an artistic and permanent way.

As we conclude our exploration of Ghostface tattoo designs, it’s crucial to remember a few key points. Tattoos are a profound form of personal expression, blending art, identity, and often, a love for specific cultural elements – in this case, the iconic Ghostface from the ‘Scream’ franchise. These designs can range from terrifyingly detailed to humorously quirky, offering a vast spectrum of possibilities to fit your aesthetic preferences and personality.

However, as with any tattoo, there are considerations and potential risks. Always ensure that your chosen tattoo artist is licensed and maintains a clean, safe environment to minimize the risk of infection. Remember, detailed or intricate designs may require longer sessions or multiple appointments, so factor in the time and financial commitment. It’s also important to consider the visibility and potential societal implications of your tattoo, particularly if it represents darker themes.

But, don’t let these considerations deter you. A well-thought-out, well-executed tattoo can serve as a lasting symbol of what you love or believe in. Tattoos often narrate our life stories, experiences, and passions, and if Ghostface happens to be part of yours, why not immortalize it in ink? Whether you’re a horror movie buff, a ‘Scream’ fan, or simply intrigued by the Ghostface concept, use this blog post as your guide to creating a tattoo that you’ll cherish. Embrace your individuality, and let your tattoo tell your unique tale.
