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 »
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]

This Halloween, the ladies of The Frisky opted to dress up as various sexual foods and scandalous animals, proving that we are, by far, the least shameful people in the entire office— maybe even in the tri-state area.
Anywho, we want to see YOUR costumes … and your kids’ costumes … and your pets’ costumes. Basically, we’re giving you the opportunity to show off your homemade Macklemore ensemble before that fifteen bucks you spent at the thrift store becomes a distant memory in a haze of vodka sodas and fun-size Snickers bars.
The best part? The photos you share will show up right here, instantaneously in our gallery for all to see (and then you can brag about it and tell your friends you’re famous). Keep reading »
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 is trying to ruin Halloween. Click through for some very incriminating evidence…
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 attention to genitals probably won’t go over well with anyone. Leave your large labia at home this October 31 and opt for, say, something of the sexy fast food or animal variety instead.
Oh, and be safe all you scandalous dinosaurs. Keep reading »
If you’re like me, you’ll swear up and down you’re not going to do anything for Halloween this year, then accept an invite to a costume party at the very last minute. Don’t be that jerk who doesn’t show up in costume — be that jerk who shows up in just cat ears and calls it a costume! Nicole Richie did just that at a soiree in Hollywood this week — and, okay, it wasn’t even a costume party, but still. Details on the four purr-fect cat ears above are after the jump! Keep reading »
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 dude dressed as Zimmerman had the photo as his profile shot — he’s since changed it and locked his account. But the internet never forgets. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? Who raised them? And why did no one in their lives stop them and say, “hey, maybe this costume of yours is not only a bad idea, but horrifically offensive and cruel, you know, because you’re mocking the death of an innocent child, you racist shitbag”? I don’t understand. [Gawker]
