Newsflash: Having A Sexy Halloween Costume Doesn’t Mean I’m An Anti-Feminist

This year, when the ladies of The Frisky decided to show off our rad Halloween costumes from Yandy.com, online purveyor of ridiculously sexified Halloween costumes, we were met with mostly supportive, entertained viewers. Mostly…

One woman send us a comment, which has since been deleted, about how she’s “disappointed” that the women behind…

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…

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 a…

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…

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…

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

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Rosebudding

Yes, rosebudding. What can I say? I am a weirdo who thinks Halloween costumes based on grotesque sexual non-trends are hilarious! All this costume requires is as much rose-printed clothing and accessories as you can find — the more hideous and clashing the better, as this costume is obviously not about beautiful aesthetics. Then, simply…

HalloweenCostumes.com has created a DIY guide to making your own 3-Breasted Woman Halloween Costume, and all you need is some rubber boobs, pink fabric, a shower curtain, scissors, hot glue gun and a wig. Even though…

These Charming College Girls Decided To Dress As Sexy 9/11 Twin Towers For Halloween

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…

For The Win: The Boo Boos Kept Up With The Kardashians For Halloween

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…

Heidi Klum Dressed Up As Old And Wrinkly For Halloween

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…

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…

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!
