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. You can give those to your niece or raver friend or save them for next year’s “Lolita” costume. Whatever. To make sure everyone understands you’re dressed up as Taylor Swift, bring along a guitar and an ex-boyfriend voodoo doll. Feeling 22? I should hope so. Details after the jump! Keep reading »
When Halloween costume purveyor Yandy.com — best known for their incredible array of hilariously absurd “sexy” costumes — reached out to us and offered to send us any costumes we wanted, we wasted on time saying yes. As much as we’ve poked fun at Yandy’s costumes over the years, we happen to seriously appreciate the site’s ridiculous sense of humor. And we were more than happy to pick a costume and model it for your entertainment.
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.

So, you know, if you aren’t down for that — but I won’t make you pay child support or even go halfsies on a Dobby costume, I swear — wear a rubber. Anyway, click onward for a whole mess of ridiculously cute kids’ costumes…
Dear People Who Go Balls Out On Halloween,
I’m not referring to people who choose Halloween costumes that expose their testicles. If you are one of those people, you’ll probably want to close this page and move on to a different open letter that deals more specifically with your definition of “balls out.”
If you’re someone who goes balls out in a metaphorical way, though, this letter is for you. If you bring your A-game every Halloween, I want to thank you. Here’s why: Keep reading »
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.

He’s always painfully late, but when he finally shows up, you’ve got a prime spot saved for him, and suddenly it feels like all is right in the world. [The Mary Sue]
We know you spent all weekend stumbling around dressed like Zombie Honey Boo Boo — and we want to see pics! We’re collecting our readers’ best costumes for a big ol’ gallery that we’ll post the day after Halloween. (Assuming Hurricane Sandy does not knock the power out.) Send pics of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words “Halloween costume” in the title. And yes, pics of your pets and/or kids dressed in stupid costumes are totally fine, too.
