It’s maybe kind of sad that it’s possible for a random summer concertgoer to be a Halloween costume. Whatever. Dry your tears on your crochet tank, pull on your absurdly frayed and sun-bleached denim shorts, spend 30 minutes buckling your complicated and uncomfortable gladiator sandals, and prepare your best “I’ve got sunstroke but I don’t care because I’m high on Molly” impression, we’re going to Coachella for Halloween! Oh, and you know Coco Chanel’s rule about removing one item before you leave the house? DO THE OPPOSITE. Always add more. Preferably of the fringed, beaded and tasseled variety. When in doubt, ask yourself, “What would Vanessa Hudgens do?” and you’ll be set. Click on for the details on the costume above! Keep reading »
Did you know today is National Candy Corn Day? This means roughly half the people reading this are all, “Woohoooo! Finally the world’s greatest seasonal candy gets the respect it deserves! I’m gonna eat nothing but candy corn today to celebrate!” And the other half is like, “Blecchhhh why would we celebrate that triangular plastic-flavored snack of the devil?!” Just out of curiosity, we wanted to conduct a little poll to see where Frisky readers stand. Please share your opinion on this very important issue in the poll below! [For those who are wondering -- i.e. none of you, really -- I am verrrrrry PRO candy corn.

Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus for Halloween and is she is rocking the look. I guess she looks, “hot.” Her Instagrammed photo says, “Twerk or treat,” which might be the quote of a generation. As we predicted (and just about everyone else on the planet did) Miley’s VMA performance would spark one of the hottest costumes this year. Perhaps more so than Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” look or Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” unitard fierceness. Hugh Hefner and, wife, Crystal Harris suited up as Robin Thicke and Miley, which is a testament of the twerker’s cultural reach. Seriously, Hugh Hefner is like 90,000,000 years old, I can’t imagine that guy listening to Bangerz.
What’s best about celebrities dressed as other celebrities is that it makes them seem sort of normal. It shows how much the media’s image of one celeb appears the same to another celebrity. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s “Brangelina” (in the gallery at the link) is spot on but also shows how much Brangelina is defined by how many children they’ve adopted together and all the paparazzi photos we see of the family traveling as a pack.

If you really want your Macklemore costume to be authentic, you would purchase all of the elements from your local thrift shop. All you need is a faux fur coat, either a pro-gay marriage T-shirt (a reference to his song “Same Love”) or a sports Jersey (the Bulls or Sonics or Celtics), gold chains, high top kicks, black jeans and cool shades. Cheat the hair — no need to shave the sides — by pulling the sides of your hair back really tight, pompadour-ing the middle section, and tying it back into a bun. BOOM. America’s hottest white rapper right now. Get the deets on the non-thrifted pieces above after the jump!

Down For The Count!
Pervy vampire beat out a human-sized vagina, a man with a penis that also acted as a ring toss, a flasher, a large vibrator and oh-so-much more, earning him the title of the Most Fucked Up Halloween Costume!
Let this be a lesson: Halloween costumes resembling and/or drawing attention to genitals probably won’t go over well with anyone. Leave your large labia at home this October 31 and opt for, say, something of the sexy fast food or animal variety instead.
Oh, and be safe all you scandalous dinosaurs. Keep reading »
The key to selecting a successful pop culture-inspired Halloween costume is choosing someone who has an iconic or distinctive look — be it their hair, makeup, accessories or clothing. Nail that specific element of the costume that makes the inspiration immediately recognizable and you’re golden. With her signature pompadour, skinny suits, black-and-white details and bow-ties, singer Janelle Monae is one such example. (And let me use this as an opportunity to emphasize that if you’re a white or otherwise lighter-skinned human, you do not need nor should you use blackface as part of your Janelle Monae costume. It’s not necessary [proof!] and it’s wrong.) Best of all, you can probably either find many of the elements for this costume in your own closet — and if not, you can reuse whatever you buy in every day life! Score! Get the details on the costume elements above and find out how to do Janelle’s pompadour for yourself here. Keep reading »
