15 Celebs Dressed As Other Celebs For Halloween

Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus for Halloween and is she is rocking the look. I guess she looks, “hot.” Her Instagrammed photo says, “Twerk or treat,” which might be the quote of a generation.

Halloween Inspiration Board: Macklemore

If you really want your Macklemore costume to be authentic, you would purchase all of the elements from your local thrift shop. All you need is a faux fur coat, either a pro-gay marriage T-shirt (a reference to his song “Same Love”) or a sports Jersey (the Bulls or Sonics or Celtics), gold chains, high…

Let’s Guess What Lady Gaga’s Latest Rejected Halloween Costume Is!

First she was a giant piece of shredded wheat. Then came Sexy Salvador Dali and the Ghost of Isadora Duncan. Now we have … the Goddess of Masking Tape & Chalk Dust, risen from the bowels of Office Depot, here to haunt our cubicles and classrooms? That’s my guess. Yours? [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Saturday was New York City’s 23rd annual Tompkins Square Park Dog Halloween Parade, where tons of pooches prance around in ridiculous costumes and win awards that only their owners truly appreciate.

There Was A Lot Of Blackface At This Africa-Themed Halloween Party

I mean, really. I think I have written “blackface” more in the last few days than I have in the last year. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t make it any less offensive and racist, people! Alright, so I suppose one shouldn’t be surprised that when some fashion-industry dimwit throws a costume party called “Disco Africa,”…

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!

Halloween Inspiration Board: Taylor Swift In The Video For “22”

The best part about dressing up as Taylor Swift in the music video for “22”? It’s made up entirely of pieces you’ll wear again and again. Well, maybe not the heart sunglasses.

Ohmygodhelpme. I have fallen into a kids’ costume k-hole and I can’t get out. Warning to any man who sleeps with me in the next, oh, 30 days: don’t trust me when I say I’m on the Pill. I’m not. If I say that I am, it’s just because I’m desperate to have a baby of…

These Life-Size Tetris Costumes Let You Become A Piece Of The Puzzle

How rad are these human-sized Tetris costumes? Concern has emerged that people will use the costumes to form impenetrable human walls to save spaces in line and reserve entire corners of neighborhood bars, but I’m more focused on the possibility of matching up my friends with their Tetris shape personalities. Like, the square is super…

I have a love-hate relationship with “What Would You Do?”, the so-called ‘reality’ show that hires actors to enact controversial situations in public to gauge the response of random people. I don’t actually watch the show, but every time I read about one of the show’s episodes online — What will happen when this neo-Nazi

9 People You’ll Meet At A Halloween Party

Halloween parties are a special breed of social gathering. Everyone’s wearing costumes, which makes the whole thing much more exciting (and confusing), plus there’s usually copious amounts of spiked punch to be consumed, “Monster Mash” dancing to do, and cheesy pickup lines to be attempted. Overall, it’s one of the most unpredictable nights of the…
