Welcome to the phenomenon known as “pumpkin birthing.” Yes, that would be pumpkins giving birth to baby pumpkins. Don’t forget to pop the afterbirth seeds into the oven for a tasty treat. Thank you, Internet. Check out more pumpkin births here. [Buzzfeed]
Hey! Nobody told me that Chanel purses were now coming with free children inside! What a scam. Seriously though, how miserable does this designer-dudded little girl look? [I Hate My Parents]
God bless Heidi Klum. Not only is she one of the sexiest ladies in the world, but she also seems to have quite a sense of humor. Every year, Klum hosts a balls-to-the-wall Halloween party, and challenges herself to design crazier and more over-the-top costumes. This year, she’s got two costumes going on: first, a strange money boy ,and second, a cadaver from the “Bodies” cadaver exhibition. Both are, well, weird. But that’s exactly why we like Klum. Check out the rest of her batcrackers looks from years past, too!
Until this week, Jenna Lyons was best known as the president and creative director of brilliant brand J. Crew. Her charming Brooklyn brownstone was featured on Oprah back in 2010, and countless times in the pages of style and interior design magazines since then. She was the subject of some controversy after a photo was published in the J. Crew catalogue of herself painting her young son’s toenails hot pink. In the past couple of days, though, Jenna’s life has been at its juiciest. A thinly veiled blind item was published that outed her as being in the middle of a divorce from her artist husband, Vincent Mazeau. Even better, this same scandalous item suggested that she was now having a lesbian affair with another woman in the fashion industry. This morning, Jenna’s love interest was revealed: Courtney Crangi, who is apparently the sister of a celebrity jeweler. I don’t have much of an opinion on this. If they’re happy, I’m happy, and happy for them. However, I doubt this will be the last we hear of Jenna and Courtney. This Halloween — and frankly, her style could be emulated any ol’ day — get your hands on Jenna’s fresh, masculine style at about 50 percent less than typical J. Crew prices. Keep reading »

This Halloween, feel like royalty! But Kate Middleton is so dull. Princess Beatrice is where it’s at! The hat she wore to Prince William and Kate’s nuptials took absolutely took the crown for most memorable. Luckily, all you really need for to pull off this costume is the fascinator in question — which we’ve found — but to get the look from head to toe, add a creamy pink coat, matching shoes, and auburn wig. Get all the details for this ripped-from-the-headlines costume, after the jump! Keep reading »
It’s easy to go bonkers around Halloween when every nine-year-old girl on the street dressed like a two-dollar hooker. I find that unnerving as well. But overly-sexy little girls’ costumes get the lion’s share of the attention where there really is a wide range of inappropriate costumes out there. Take, for instance, this Sexy Osama Bin Laden Costume. Too soon, guys. T-o-o s-o-o-n.
After the jump, 14 more costumes that are not for the easily offended. (Which begs the question, why are you on the Internet anyway?) Keep reading »
Is Jessica Simpson pregnant, or did she just eat a really big burrito? At this point, her baby bump has gone way beyond speculative — and unless she’s using her body as a new type of pillow storage device, J.Simps is pretty far along. In honor of her soon-to-be babe, we’ve come up with a Simpson-rific Halloween costume. You’ll need a baby bump, a baby (in order to help envision what her spawn with Eric Johnson might look like), and a mini-football — Eric’s a former NFL player, after all. If you really want to take the costume next level, walk around with a can of tuna fish, and ask everyone you meet ”is what I have chicken or fish?” Find out what you’ll need, after the jump.

Possibly! Kudos to her for making the blood look so wet. [Reddit]
It’s not like I ever thought the crude triangles for eyes and half moon-shaped mouth were particularly impressive; but upon looking at Ray Villafane’s incredibly lifelike pumpkin carvings, I realize just how lame my own jack-o-lanterns have been. Villafane, who is also a sand artist, makes use of not just the skin of the pumpkin, but the flesh underneath, creating these frighteningly realistic and dynamic faces. He sells his creations for over $400 a pop, an awfully hefty price to pay for art that will rot in a matter of days, but I guess if Halloween is, like, your favorite holiday, it’s worth it? Click on through to see more of his ghoulish gords. Keep reading »
