I can’t say I understand wanting to dress up like a sexy sock monkey, but who am I to stand in the way of the Halloween hopes and dreams of others?

We talked to the folks at Yandy.com, home of costumes such as sexy pizza and sexy big bird, to find out what the ladies are buying this Halloween.

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 »
That’s it. Everyone else can go home now. This family’s incredible, handmade “Labyrinth” costumes just instantly rendered every other costume tragically subpar. I mean, look at the tiny Goblin King! And that amazingly detailed Ludo mask! And DIDYMUS RIDING THE DOG. It’s all too perfect for words. Bravo, “Labyrinth” family, bravo. [Laughing Squid]
Sexy/edible is Halloween costume category that has always been unsettling. Because…why? Last year, we were forced to make sense of the sexy bacon and sexy hamburger costumes. This year, Yandy.com has added sexy pizza and sexy french fries to their inventory. The only thing this costume will get you is nibbled on by a bunch of drunkards at your Halloween party. And not the good kind of nibbling. [$69.95 Yandy]
You might have big plans to dress as James Franco’s character from “Spring Breakers” this Halloween. But really, the only costume that matters is the one you’ll treat you’re date to later that night when you strip down to your birthday suit. If you really want to have a “look at my shit” moment, don’t wait until the last minute to decide what your dick is going to be for Halloween. This Flickr user dressed his penis as a ghost last year. But we think you can do better than that. Click through for some (NSFW!) ideas about how to trick your cock out this Halloween.
Everyone and their mom is going to be dressed up as Miley Cyrus at the VMAs for Halloween. Dare to be different, just like Smilerz! Go as Miley Cyrus in the music video for “We Can’t Stop” instead. It’s less naked, which is a bonus considering Halloween has the misfortune of falling at the end of October when the temps are typically verging on freezing. Add a short platinum wig or pull your own hair back into a modified pompadour of sorts, and stick on some pointy gold press-on nails from the drugstore. Oh, and here’s a tutorial (from a child!) on making your own fake grillz. Details on where to buy everything else, after the jump! Keep reading »
I have seen “Spring Breakers,” let’s see … three times now? Or is it four? It is probably my favorite movie of the last, oh, six months. Should the warm weather continue and I actually deign to actually leave my house for once and dress up for Halloween, I will be baring skin as one of Alien’s little chickies. To really take this costume up a notch, shout “get on your knees, bitch!” in everyone’s face and find willing participants to deep throat your plastic squirt gun. Oh yeah, and memorize all the lyrics to Britney Spears’ “Everytime.” So necessary. Deets for how to get this bad ass costume, after the jump! Keep reading »

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.
First up for 2013, this Osama Bin Laden costume, which was deemed offensive enough to be pulled from the shelves of Wal Mart, RiteAid and removed from Amazon’s website. Should you be boneheaded enough to wear it on October 31st, expect to be shunned by friends and strangers alike. Because Halloween is about many things, but dressing up as “one of the most infamous terrorists of all time” isn’t one of them. [$52.99, Halloween Costumes]
