I know Halloween is over, but evidence is still surfacing of the biggest costume gaffes of the holiday. Case in point: two British college students, Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, ended up on the cover of The Sun for their ill-advised “sexy 9/11″ costumes — complete with American flags, smoke, flames and people jumping to their death.
No one is sure what the 19-year-old Chester University students were thinking when they entered a Halloween costume competition in these offensive get-ups. Worst part: they won contest. How? Even worse part: One of their fathers is a pilot who flies planes in the US. Huh?
Both the club and the university are investigating the incident. In the meantime, Amber and Annie have issued an apology for what may be the most ill-advised costume choice of the year. “We never meant to be offensive, but we apologize if any offense was caused. The idea was to depict a modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke,” they said.
That still doesn’t explain what the hell they were thinking. You can see another picture of their fallen Twin Towers costumes after the jump. [Gawker] Keep reading »
Wait one second, Fat-Shaming Trick-Or-Treat Lady! Before you claim the Worst House To Visit On Halloween Award, we have another contender! This past Halloween night, some trick-or-treaters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, discovered anti-abortion business card-sized literature amongst their bounty of Reese’s peanut butter cups, M&Ms and Starbursts. The cards are printed with pictures of fetuses alongside messages like “I am not a clump of cells, I am a human being,” “Am I not human?” and “53 million killed.” What a waste of paper! And not just because the anti-choice messaging is crap. I mean, clearly the pamphlets come as a complete disappointment to kids who expected candy and instead got finger cuts. Even a goddamn Mounds would be better! But I can’t imagine any parent who’s actually on the fence about abortion would be impressed by tactics like this. I mean, they went out for a nice evening trick-or-treating with their little Snow White or whatever and ended the night having to explain what abortion is to a six-year-old. I’m sure that really swayed them. [via Jezebel]
Look at his little hair buns! I don’t care for the One Direction’s music, or whatever they’re called, but I like this cheeky Harry Styles lad. I do not, however, like the person who took these photos. Learn how to focus, brah. [Buzzfeed]
Australia doesn’t even celebrate Halloween, but that didn’t stop Queen Bey and her crew from whipping up some costumes while on tour. Beyoncé dressed as an angel, but a kinda devilish one. She seems to be enjoying that ass grab from a severed zombie hand a bit too much.
But enough about Bey, though — what did Blue Ivy wear as a costume? [Idolator]
Holy crap. But where does Officer Minaj put her gun? See a few more shots from Nicki’s Instagram after the jump! Keep reading »
Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka and their twins, Gideon and Harper, already won Halloween with their costume earlier in the week, but Neil didn’t lie when he said they were really bringing it on actual Halloween day. You guys get all the extra credit! Also, adopt me, please!
But they had some competition! Click on for even more celebrity kids all dressed up for Halloween 2013…
Behold the Thompson family’s genius Halloween costume idea. In case you need help identifying them all: Honey Boo Boo was Kris Jenner, Mama June channeled Kim, Sugar Bear transformed into Bruce Jenner (and managed to look more manly), Anna did her best Kourtney, Jessica killed it as Khloe, Pumpkin slayed Scott Disick, baby Kaitlyn became Penelope Disick and Uncle Poodle rocked the Kanye costume (sans blackface).
“We decided to dress up like the Kardashians because everyone seems to compare our family to them. Now we’re just the redneck version,” explained Mama June. Well played, Boo Boos. [People]
Heidi Klum’s goal every Halloween is to basically see how much makeup and prosthetics she can pile on without being crushed under their weight. Her Halloween costumes are always phenomenal, putting everyone else — all the Mileys, and the zombies, and the sugar skulls — to shame. This year was no different, but her costume was still a surprise. Klum looks utterly unrecognizable when she showed up to her annual Halloween party dressed as an old and wrinkly lady. THAT NECK. That little dip in the center? They call that the suprasternal notch and Heidi’s wrinkly ass one is a sight to behold. See a few more shots — including her varicose-veined legs and feet — after the jump! As Tyra would say, she’s giving old, wrinkly realness from H to T.

There are so many options for Halloween costumes and so many of them seem to be awful. This year, we’ll be giving awards out to the best of the worst the holiday has to offer.
It takes a real asshole to dress up as an Ass Face for Halloween. If this is your costume pick, then you probably deserve any and all derision that comes your way. I’m not literally advocating physical violence, but surely an Ass Face deserves a hearty insult at the very least. Because … WHY? [$29.99, Spencers]
You know for about five seconds I was sitting here thinking, “I wonder how long it takes to light all the candles and how much of a fire hazard it is” and then I remembered that we have this technology called electricity and LED lights. New York’s Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze is probably up on that. Find more photos on The Mary Sue…
