Man Makes His Own “Downton Abbey” Halloween Costume, Puts Your Lady Mary Costume To Shame

“What are you going to be for Halloween?”
“Downton Abbey.”
“Cool! Who?”
“Just … Downton Abbey.”

A man named Rob Cockerham went and one-upped every single one of you who wanted to have a “Downton Abbey” Halloween costume this year. This incredibly detail-oriented man decided to go as the famous building “due to a gross misunderstanding of the term ‘Costume Drama,’” and made the entire thing from nothing but foam board, paper, glue, and a couple of PVC pipes.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Basic Bitch

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Basic Bitch

Here’s what I’ve realized about basic bitch: I AM ONE. We all are. The list of basic bitch characteristics is lengthy and it’s pretty much impossible not to find some things you have in common with this much maligned archetype of supposedly boring femininity. For example: I love “Friends” reruns, SoulCycle, that new Taylor Swift song, and Florence, Italy, all examples of basic bitchdom according to the various definitions I’ve read online. So, why not embrace your own inner (and outer) basic bitch by making the typical Basic Bitch look your Halloween costume? Don’t forget to post tons of photos on Insta, hashtag #BLESSED! (Although, if you really want to be a Basic Bitch for Halloween, you should really be a SEXY basic bitch, because basic bitches love sexy Halloween costumes.) Keep reading »

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Taylor “No Its Becky” Swift

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Taylor "No Its Becky" Swift

I really kinda dig Taylor Swift. Her music is fun and sometimes, sadly, reflects my much-older dating woes, she’s smart and sassy, and she definitely has a sense of humor about her own fame. Case in point: when she wore this “No Its Becky” shirt out and about in NYC recently, a reference to an amazing Tumblr post that went viral, in which a photo of Taylor is identified as some random chick named Becky, who used to be happy and popular until she snorted marijuana at a party. And what do ya know, this moment in random pop culture memery is the perfect inspiration for any Swifty in need of a Halloween costume. Just don’t forget to bring Olivia Benson! Read on for details!

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Mary Poppins

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Mary Poppins

As I kid, I went through a phase where I watched “Mary Poppins,” starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, on a very, very regular basis. Mary Poppins was everything. Sassy, smart, opinionated, matter-of-fact, imaginative and beautiful. Come to think of it, my management style — “ruling with an iron fist of flowers,” as I put it — is inspired by her approach to child (and parent) rearing. Anyway, “Mary Poppins” is also on Broadway right now, so why not dress up as everyone’s favorite governess for Halloween this year? Best of all, a lot of these items you can wear again as separates.

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Astrophysicist & Host Of “Cosmos,” Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Astrophysicist & Host Of "Cosmos," Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, author and host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” is a pretty big hero of mine. The way he talks about science makes it utterly captivating for everyone, even those of us who struggled in our high school science classes. No one makes the Big Bang sound sexier than NDGT, deal with it. Show your love for his brilliance by dressing up in his trademark celestial vest, dad jeans and sexy ‘stache this Halloween, inviting everyone in your orbit to come on journey on your spaceship of the imagination. (Turn this into a couple’s costume by getting a friend or date to dress up as Carl Sagan! All you really need is a turtleneck and blazer.) Keep reading »

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Beyonce In The “***Flawless” Music Video

The question is not, “Will you be Beyonce for Halloween?” it’s “Which Beyonce will you be for Halloween?” My personal fave Beyonce is the Beyonce from the music video for “***Flawless,” because I’ve never met a plaid shirt, pair of denim cutoffs or combat boots that I did not love, plus, her “***Flawless” dance moves are at least somewhat manageable to learn (unlike, say the choreography in “Blow”) and instantly recognizable. Wake up like this on October 31 with the pieces after the jump! Keep reading »
