Halloween Inspiration Board: Your Worst Coachella Nightmare

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…

Rude Lady Ruins Halloween By Telling Fargo Trick-Or-Treaters They’re Fat

Rudeness, not fun-size Skittles, is how one Fargo, North Dakota, lady is celebrating this Halloween.

Yesterday an anonymous woman announced during a radio show call-in her intention to withhold candy for trick-or-treaters if she deems them too pudgy through their Dora The Explorer and Wreck-It Ralph costumes.

The woman told a Y-94…

Britney Spears Is Apparently British For Halloween

Happy Halloween from Britney Spears and her Madonna-esque faux-English accent, which she utilizes to recite the opening monologue of “Thriller” while cavorting, uh, creepily alongside green-screen ghouls and graveyards. I don’t completely understand what I’ve just seen, but Bert-Bert looks conscious, which is ALWAYS a good thing. [Jezebel]…

Halloween Inspiration Board: Macklemore

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…

19 Ways Pinterest Is Ruining Halloween

Pinterest gets a bad rap for giving us a case of the shoulds for nearly every occasion imaginable. Or, in this instance, the should nots. This Halloween, feel justified about not giving a fuck because at least you aren’t wasting your time trying to recreate these disasters. Here are some over-the-top examples of how Pinterest…

And The Winner Of Our WTF?! Halloween Costume Battle Is…

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…

Let’s Guess What Lady Gaga’s Latest Rejected Halloween Costume Is!

First she was a giant piece of shredded wheat. Then came Sexy Salvador Dali and the Ghost of Isadora Duncan. Now we have … the Goddess of Masking Tape & Chalk Dust, risen from the bowels of Office Depot, here to haunt our cubicles and classrooms? That’s my guess. Yours? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Halloween Inspiration Board: Janelle Monae

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,…

28 Cute Costumed Dogs At The 2013 Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade

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.

There Was A Lot Of Blackface At This Africa-Themed Halloween Party

I mean, really. I think I have written “blackface” more in the last few days than I have in the last year. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t make it any less offensive and racist, people! Alright, so I suppose one shouldn’t be surprised that when some fashion-industry dimwit throws a costume party called “Disco Africa,”…

32 Celebs That Didn’t Dress Up In Blackface This Halloween

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!

Because Blackface Wasn’t Enough For These Terrible People

Via Gawker, these Quincy, Massachusetts, partiers decided it would be funny and cool to dress up and pose as George Zimmerman shooting a bloodied Trayvon Martin for Halloween. According to the site, the girl who posted the photo to Facebook has since deleted it from her account there and on Instagram. And for awhile, the…

Julianne Hough Does Blackface For “Orange Is The New Black” Halloween Costume

Julianne Hough apparently did not get the memo that wearing blackface, no matter the reason — yes, even when dressing up as Crazy Eyes from “Orange is the New Black” — is racist and not okay. Melanin is not a costume! White people, you can dress up as someone of another race for Halloween without…
