Pug Wrecking Ball Costume

Since the world has reached a dangerous Miley Cyrus oversaturation point, we’ve vowed to limit our Miley coverage to stories involving strange, endearing Celine Dion quotes or cute animals reenacting her sexy music videos. With that in mind, here’s a pug dressed up as the wrecking ball from the “Wrecking Ball” video. Enjoy. [Neatorama]

14 Cool Halloween-Inspired Manicures

Maybe you work in office that frowns on Halloween celebrations. or anything else remotely fun. Or maybe you think nail art is too out-there and are waiting for a festive occasion when it’s OK to look costume-y. Or maybe you just want to look like you have slime dripping of your fingernails. Well, ladies, you’re in luck! I’ve poked around on Pinterest (such a grueling job I have) to find some of the funkiest Halloween-inspired nails. Some will require the expertise of your manicurist, while others you can figure out in your own bathroom. Just make sure no one shouts “BOO!” while you’re trying to do your nails, okay?

Debate This: Do These Gruesome Halloween Decorations Go Too Far?

Debate This: Do These Gruesome Halloween Decorations Go Too Far?

I’ve written before about how much I appreciate people who go balls out on Halloween, and I even put together a slideshow of scary Halloween decoration ideas that included a doll in a blood-filled bathtub, but even so, something about these “decorative” fake dead bodies a man set up in his Oklahoma driveway kinda rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it’s because they are SO realistic, or because there’s no supernatural element to it (like zombies, ghosts, or demons), or that the police have been called to the scene by concerned neighbors. “Just trying to scare people,” says Johnnie Mullins, the mastermind behind the bloody decor, “that’s what I like to do.” The scene is definitely scary (hence the 911 calls), but the fear comes from a very realistic portrayal of violence and death. It’s also not in the context of a Halloween party or some other situation where you might expect the host to try to freak out their guests — anyone walking by will see these bodies. What do y’all think about this? Are these fake corpses brilliant or in bad taste? Sound off in the comments! [News 9]

Watch This: What If Horror Movie Characters Made Good Decisions?

Hell No Horror Movie
"Should we split up?" "HELL NO!"

Even the best horror movie storylines hinge on the main characters making very, very poor decisions. From exploring an abandoned mental institution to spending the weekend at a serial killer’s cabin to pushing play on a cursed videotape to taking every opportunity to split up and explore dark corners alone, horror movie characters are always severely lacking in common sense. This hilarious preview for an imaginary horror movie called “Hell No!” introduces us to something never before seen in the horror genre: sensible characters who do sensible things. You’ll hardly believe your eyes. [YouTube via The Mary Sue]

Halloween Inspiration Board: Tina Belcher From “Bob’s Burgers”

Halloween Inspiration Board: Tina Belcher From "Bob's Burgers"

Okay, so I’ve never actually seen an episode of “Bob’s Burgers,” but apparently it’s popular and the character of Tina Belcher sounds like my spirit animal. At 14 years old, she has a voracious sex drive and a uniboob, and her favorite things are horses, rainbows, zombies, and writing erotic fiction. Like I said, spirit animal. Something tells me I will be watching “Bob’s Burgers” tonight. Oh, anyway, the other great thing about Tina is that she makes for possibly the easiest Halloween costume ever — chances are you can source most of this stuff from your closet. But if not, we’ve figured it out for you. Just don’t forget to practice your moaning. Keep reading »

7 Horror Movie Villains Ranked By Dateability

Halloween is not a holiday known for love, but stay with us for a sec. The canon of horror movies is rife with potentially dateable and definitely single men, who could all just use some love, or at least a nice dinner out.  If online dating and the daily drudge of searching for available and attractive men that won’t kill you in your sleep is getting you down, then change the game! All men are horror shows, anyway, right? Why not take that to heart and include these dudes in your list? Let’s take a look at these seven horror movie villains, and see just how dateable they really are.

Halloween Inspiration Board: Model Cara Delevigne

Halloween Inspiration Board: Model Cara Delevigne

If you pay any attention at all to the fashion industry or have picked up a fashion magazine in the last year, chances are good you at least recognize this face: Cara Delevigne is arguably the hottest up-and-coming model in years, thanks to her trademark heavy brows, wacky facial expressions, edgy street style and, uh, history of dropping bags of cocaine in public. And dressing up as Cara for Halloween turns out to be totally easy. Snag her (exact, I believe) Bart Simpson two-piece ensemble on eBay, plop on a red beanie and combat boots, sling a personalized backpack over your shoulder and make as many weird faces are you can think of all night (here are a few to inspire you). Oh yeah, and fill a small baggy with powdered sugar to act as your faux cocaine — seriously, don’t be all method and use the real stuff. As Cara knows all too well, that spells trouble. Full deets for this costume after the jump! Keep reading »

Halloween Inspiration Board: The Women Of “Orange Is The New Black”

Halloween Inspiration Board: The Women Of "Orange Is The New Black"

A little over a week ago, I asked you to vote on which pop culture-inspired Halloween costumes you most wanted me to recreate, and the cast of “Orange is the New Black” won handily. Now, the basics of this costume are simple and easy to find — the standard orange or tan “jumpsuit” is actually basically just scrub separates, which you can purchase online. Add a pair of plain blue Keds and a name tag and you’ll handily pass for a lady in the clink. It’s up to you which accessories you want to add to be a specific character. Going as Piper, as seen above? Just add a screwdriver! Alex? Black rimmed glasses, fake arm tattoos, and extremely thin and arched brows. And for Crazy Eyes? Little hair twists and a crazy-eyed expression, natch. (Memorize that monologue from Shakespeare’s Coriolanus and call every blonde woman you see “Dandylion” for extra authenticity.) You get the picture. Get the details on where to buy the basic of this costume after the jump — and add suggested accessories for each of the specific characters in the comments! Keep reading »

Dear People Who Go Balls Out On Halloween,

I’m not referring to people who choose Halloween costumes that expose their testicles. If you are one of those people, you’ll probably want to close this page and move on to a different open letter that deals more specifically with your definition of “balls out.”

If you’re someone who goes balls out in a metaphorical way, though, this letter is for you. If you bring your A-game every Halloween, I want to thank you. Here’s why: Keep reading »
