Saturday was New York City’s 23rd annual Tompkins Square Park Dog Halloween Parade, where tons of pooches prance around in ridiculous costumes and win awards that only their owners truly appreciate. Though Tompkins Square Park is only a few blocks from my apartment, my dog Lucca is a snot and refuses to let me dress her up, so I’m forced to live vicariously through all the other dog owners whose pups are game for, say, playing James Franco’s character in “Spring Breakers.” Jealous. (It’s okay, I still love you, Lu, even if you’re no fun.) Click on to see some truly squee-worthy Halloween dogs! [Photos via Flickr, Facebook and Gothamist]
Contrary to what Julianne Hough might have thought – and since apologized for – it is possible to get all dolled up for Halloween without being offensive and wearing someone’s skin color as a “costume.” These 32 other celebrities managed to dress up, some to the point of being unrecognizable, without donning blackface. What a treat!
If you want to dress up as a Disney character for Halloween, there are so many to choose from: Snow White, Cinderella, Aladdin, Tinkerbell, and a plethora of colorful villains are all popular choices. But Rob Cockerham wanted to take the whole “Disney costume” idea to the next level; he wanted to dress up as Disneyland. Like, literally the entire theme park. He created the whole thing himself out of foamboard, paint, and accurate maps of the park, giving his face a prime spot in Cinderella’s Castle. Check out more photos of the finished product and the process at his website, and head over to YouTube to see a video of Rob’s costume in action, narrated by his adorable son. [The Mary Sue]
This may come as a shock to you, but life-sized vaginas and costumes of fictional characters receiving fellatio are considered poor taste.
While I personally feel private parts and oral sex are just dandy in their natural forms, it’s different when a human adult is parading around town with his massive labia on display for all to see (even if he says he’s just a man in a boat).
So here we are. We’re down to the final two WTF?! Halloween Costumes in our battle, and the last duel is between “Little Man in a Canoe” and “Down For The Count.” Keep reading »
I’ve figured it out. Lady Gaga had so many amazing ideas about what she could be for Halloween that she decided to dress up in all of them over the course of the month leading up to the holiday. I mean, yesterday she was Shredded Wheat, right? And last night, Gaga hit the town as Sexy Salvador Dali (above), obviously. Her costume today, shown after the jump, is more open to interpretation. I think she’s either the ghost of Isadora Duncan or an almost empty toilet paper roll. Hard to say. [Photos: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
OMFG. A baby in an LED costume. These are the moments when I long to be a parent — so I can dress my baby up to look like a glow-in-the-dark stick figure on Halloween. Please, please, please parents of the world, let me live vicariously through you by putting this glow-y thing on your baby next week. [Videogum]
