Halloween Inspiration Board: MaKenzie From “Toddlers & Tiaras”

“Toddlers & Tiaras” is one of our favorite trainwreck shows to watch and in the last year the TLC kiddle pageant reality show has become rather controversial. Tots dressed as movie hookers! Toddlers getting waxed! Wee ones high on Pixie Sticks! The parenting, it is questionable. The standout “T&T” regular, in our opinion, is little…

15 Hella Inappropriate Halloween Costumes

It’s easy to go bonkers around Halloween when every nine-year-old girl on the street dressed like a two-dollar hooker. I find that unnerving as well. But overly-sexy little girls’ costumes get the lion’s share of the attention where there really is a wide range of inappropriate costumes out there. Take, for instance, this Sexy Osama…

Halloween Inspiration Board: Pregnant Jessica Simpson

Is Jessica Simpson pregnant, or did she just eat a really big burrito? At this point, her baby bump has gone way beyond speculative — and unless she’s using her body as a new type of pillow storage device, J.Simps is pretty far along. In honor of her soon-to-be babe, we’ve come up with a…

Halloween Inspiration Board: Sue Lyons As “Lolita”

In Stanley Kubrick’s 1963 film adaptation of the controversial novel Lolita, Sue Lyons is a disturbingly uncanny Dolores Haze. She embodies the nymphet to the last gum-snapping, downy-limbed detail as she preens before her middle-aged lover Humbert Humbert. The film sees Lolita dressed precociously in heavily ruffled baby-doll dresses and, in her most famous image,…
