Halloween is a crazy holiday. Between the costumes and the candy binges, anything can happen, so it’s good to be prepared for a variety of scenarios. We’ve rounded up a few of the most awkward Halloween moments, from being the only one at work who dressed up to having evidence of your debauchery posted online, along with instructions on how to deal with each one. Get the details, after the jump! Keep reading »
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 group sits down at IHOP? — I’m off to the races to watch the shit out of that thing.
It’s inevitable, really, that they would do a show about Halloween and little kids costumes. Get your little black hearts ready: an adorable boy is going to find out from some busybody ladies at a Halloween store why he can’t be a princess for Halloween. Keep reading »
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 year. One thing you can always count on, though, is that you’ll meet these nine people on the Halloween party circuit… Keep reading »
Did you know French Bulldogs are total candy hoarders? Because they are. They just can’t get enough of the sweet stuff, which is why they’re given to dressing up in ridiculously inappropriate Halloween costumes just to get a Tootsie Roll or two. Here, we’ve got 12 Frenchies all dolled up in their spooky best. Enjoy!
I only recently discovered the amazing phenomenon that is “Friday Night Lights,” and more specifically, the glorious perfection that is Connie Briton as Tami Taylor. I told Amelia I wanted to be Tami Taylor for Halloween and hopefully win some kind of costume party prize for Least Timely Pop Culture Reference, but then Amelia threatened to dress up as Amelie and steal my crown. Bitch. Anyway, just in case you’re looking for a costume idea that’s neither current (like these internet obsessions) or cheekily retro, but instead falls awkwardly into the pop culture gulch of the past few years, well, click through for some delightfully outdated ideas…
I’ve always loved Halloween. The candy, the Jack-O-Lanterns, the parties, and of course, the costumes. I’m no stranger to awesome Halloween costumes. I’ve been everything from a box of crayons (four-years-old) to a genie (10-years-old) to Britney Spears pre-public meltdown (27-years-old, while eight months pregnant — it was a truly brilliant costume if I say so myself).
One thing I love about Halloween is the ability for both kids and adults to play pretend for an evening. One thing I don’t love about it, however, is that if you lack the time/desire/sewing skills to scour Pinterest and create a homemade costume, your choices for children are sadly limited.
