What’s Wrong With Dressing Slutty On Halloween?

Yes, we’ve all heard that “Mean Girls” quote about how Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut. And I’ll admit that the “sexy costume” craze has led to some weird combinations, like Sexy Chewbacca and Sexy Skunk. But every year, in the weeks leading up to our…

Anyone Order A Tiny Taco?

Since there can never be too many cute babies in costumes, here’s another to get you through this not-quite-Friday-yet afternoon.

How To Be The Old Spice Guy For Halloween

Lord knows my 2010 highlight was getting a personalized video message from the Old Spice Guy, aka my boyfriend, aka Isaiah Mustafa. (Not really on the boyfriend part, sadly.) If you want your man to look like the man your man could smell like, Know Your Meme has a handy-dandy guide to an Old Spice…

And These Are Urban Outfitters’ “Halloween Costumes”

This Halloween season, American Apparel introduced its “Costume Builder,” which we found out was really just a way to pass off clothes you already wear as a “costume.” Turns out, Urban Outfitters has also launched a halloween shop on its website, and although the offerings are slightly more holiday-appropriate, it’s still a bizarre mix of…

How A Makeup Artist Turned A Naked Kim Kardashian Silver

It didn’t occur to me until I saw this article on how makeup artist Gucci Westman (um, seriously?) turned a naked Kim Kardashian silver that the bravest among us females may be rocking this look come Halloween. So, how’d they turn Kim into the platinum version of Goldfinger? “I wanted it to look like Kim…

These Are American Apparel’s “Halloween Costumes”

We understand that since American Apparel is having financial troubles, the company might try to get creative with its ways to push merchandise. A product of this is perhaps the Costume Builder you’ll now find online. Except … it would appear that American Apparel’s idea of a “Halloween costume” is shockingly similar to the outfit…

Rachael Ray As Jessica Rabbit

One of the costumes I was considering this Halloween: Jessica Rabbit. Too bad Rachael Ray beat me to it, dressing as the sexy lounge singer from the classic “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” while her hubby dressed as Roger. They donned the costumes for Rachael’s Halloween special, which will be shot and aired in 3-D. What…

Babies Dressed As Gnomes

What’s that sound? Your ovaries exploding. Behold Sloane, who is 4 months old, lives in New York City, and enjoys dressing up as a gnome. (I thought this was a boy, but Amelia says it’s a girl.) According to Ohdeedoh, Sloane appears to be part of an epidemic sweeping baby land in which cute babie…

Baby Gaga Is The Stuff Of Nightmares

Listen, no one loves babies more than me. And I especially love babies in Halloween costumes. But this baby dressed up like Lady Gaga is scaring the crap out of me. Most frightening little monster ever. [Brands On Sale]…

We Never Noticed Her Teeny, Tiny Hands

On Halloween, our Ami channeled one of Kristen Wiig’s most hilarious “Saturday Night Live” characters, Junice, the “Lawrence Welk” singer/dancer with the itty-bitty hands and shrill voice.

A Misfit With A Heart Of Gold

This is our Kate (left), as Stormer from “Jem and the Holograms,” with her sister Lizz (right), as Minnie Mouse. Kate says four whole people were able to identify her costume without context. They were all, of course, women circa age 30. Did you dress up for Halloween? Don’t forget to send your pics to…

For Halloween, I Got ShamWowed!

While I considered being Amelia Earhart or Max from “Where The Wild Things Are” for Halloween, once I found out my date was going as ShamWow pitchman, Vince Shlomi, my choice was clear. His costume would be even better if I went as the hooker Shlomi beat up (SlapChopped!) in Miami after she bit his

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Jareth The Goblin King

I probably watched Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth”–starring a young Jennifer Connelly opposite the rawtha formidable one-and-only David Bowie, who played Jareth, the intimidating Goblin King–approximately 100 times when I was a kid and that’s no exaggeration. You better believe Bowie brought his signature sexy androgyny to the table and let’s just say it made a very…

Last-Minute Halloween Task! Find A Masculine Costume For Your Effeminate Son

We were so focused on the crappy Cyrus parents who let their 9-year-old daughter out of the house dressed like a sexy witch in dominatrix boots, we forgot about scads of other crappy American parents who fret about their sons playing dress-up on Halloween. Oh, The Onion, you crack us up!
