The Halloween Inspiration Board: Blair Waldorf

Sure, Serena van der Woodsen is supposed to be the talk of the town, but we’re more interested in Blair Waldorf’s prep-school style. This costume has all the naughty school girl appeal with a touch of Upper East Side class. An added bonus? Each piece is really cute and completely re-wearable! Get the deets, after…

Riot Grrl = Better Halloween Costume Than A Spice Girl

I want to hate this costume because it doesn’t represent the ’90’s riot grrl scene at all (think: underground feminist punk like Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Bratmobile). But I’d much rather have my little niece go as a botched riot grrl for Halloween than Noah Cyrussexy witch with dominatrix boots get-up! [HalloweenCostumes4U]…

What Is Suri Cruise Going To Be For Halloween?

Our photo service, Splash News, says this is a photo of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes shopping for Halloween costumes. Since we don’t see any costumes in this pic, we’re wondering what little Suri is going to be for Halloween:

Baby Maverick from “Top Gun”?
A princess? (She’s got the outfits for…

Miley’s Little Sis, Noah, Sure Looks Mature This Halloween

Behold 9-year-old Noah Cyrus! Far be it from us to slut-shame a fourth grader, but would it kill ol’ Billy Ray and Tish to insist she be a little girl for just a while longer? It’s not too hard to say, “No, you’re not dressing as a sexy witch with dominatrix boots for Halloween!” Because…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Balloon Boy

If the universe were a fair place, the Balloon Boy caper would blow over by Halloween (har, har). But we all know we’re probably stuck with this kid for a while, so why not go trick-or-treating this October 31st dressed as the most famous 6-year-old on the planet, Falcon Heene? All it takes is a…

Happy Vag-O-Ween!

The Green Halloween Bazaar features works by artists and designers to encourage less consumption. Not sure a vagina costume is what they had in mind, but judging from yesterday’s graphic necklace, it’s right on trend! Just tell the kids it’s a hairy taco? []…

Who needs to be a slutty cop or a trampy pirate for Halloween when you can trick-or-treat as the bane of John McCain’s existence? Hustler magazine is gifting their lucky customers with the scariest fright mask of all: a cardboard face mask of adult film actress Lisa Ann, star of the Sarah Palin porn, “Who’s

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Sexy Eloise

Remember the Eloise books by Kay Thompson about the mischievous child who lived in New York City’s Plaza Hotel? While you may have loved them as a kid, envision Eloise as a grown-up and all of a sudden she’s a sexy character to dress up as for Halloween—schoolgirl skirt, knee-highs, playful attitude (plus, you can’t…

I mean, the title of the post says it all, no? There’s just something about a dog in glasses, a wig and judge robe with its tongue sticking out that really gets our attention, ya know? If you know what’s good for ya, you’ll truck on over to The New York Daily News to see…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: A New Jersey Housewife

Careening through life high on drama is best left to the ladies of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But ripping off their Jersey girl style just for one night will do your bubbies proud! Lucky for you, it’s as easy as making a trip to my fair state’s biggest temple of worship (that’s “the…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Matador

The other day I was walking down the street wearing a shirt with a frilly collar and black skinny jeans, and, suddenly, it hit me! If I put on a cropped jacket, some red knee socks, and carried around a red cape or blanket, I could fight bulls like there’s no tomorrow. Now, if only…

Halloween Costume FAIL: Woman Arrested For Stealing Sexy Cop Outfit

Sure, we all know thousands, maybe millions of women want to don slutty Halloween costumes come Oct. 31, but what you might not have considered is that all that pleather and latex and crappy lace ain’t cheap, no matter how crappy it looks. One South Carolina woman was so driven to the brink of insanity…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Amelia Earhart

Amelias are hot s**t right now. There’s me, of course, and then there’s Amelia Earhart, the legendary female aviator who will be immortalized in a movie starring Hilary Swank later this year. Amelia’s style was already super fierce and I love a costume that allows me to buy pieces that I could wear again. Check…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Maryann Forrester From “True Blood”

Didn’t you just love to hate Maryann Forrester in season two of “True Blood“? Author Charlaine Harris has one helluva imagination, but it was creator/executive producer Alan Ball who brought Maryann to life. Even though she was a rather annoying villain (surprisingly, though, she was less annoying than Sookie Stackhouse), none of this season would…

Costumes For Trick-Or-Treating Or Turning Tricks?

Halloween is the one time of year when grown women let their hair down and bring their hemlines up as they become risque revelers at parties and parades across the country. But raunchy costumes aren’t only for those above the age of consent this year. A growing trend at costume stores and websites is offering…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Julia Child

Think of Julia Child and the word “sexy” might not come to mind. But then think about all you could do if she were suddenly a sexy Halloween costume. Imagine a short, coquettish apron to show off legs. And a spatula to punish naughty trick-or-treaters.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Carmen Sandiego

I bought a long, red trench at a thrift store a couple years ago, and, without fail, I get called Carmen Sandiego every time I wear it. Dressing up as your favorite educational villain is simple if you already own a red trench — or want to buy one to wear on days other tha…
