Happy Halloween from Britney Spears and her Madonna-esque faux-English accent, which she utilizes to recite the opening monologue of “Thriller” while cavorting, uh, creepily alongside green-screen ghouls and graveyards. I don’t completely understand what I’ve just seen, but Bert-Bert looks conscious, which is ALWAYS a good thing. [Jezebel]
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 top kicks, black jeans and cool shades. Cheat the hair — no need to shave the sides — by pulling the sides of your hair back really tight, pompadour-ing the middle section, and tying it back into a bun. BOOM. America’s hottest white rapper right now. Get the deets on the non-thrifted pieces above after the jump!

Pinterest gets a bad rap for giving us a case of the shoulds for nearly every occasion imaginable. Or, in this instance, the should nots. This Halloween, feel justified about not giving a fuck because at least you aren’t wasting your time trying to recreate these disasters. Here are some over-the-top examples of how Pinterest is trying to ruin Halloween. Click through for some very incriminating evidence…
Down For The Count!
Pervy vampire beat out a human-sized vagina, a man with a penis that also acted as a ring toss, a flasher, a large vibrator and oh-so-much more, earning him the title of the Most Fucked Up Halloween Costume!
Let this be a lesson: Halloween costumes resembling and/or drawing attention to genitals probably won’t go over well with anyone. Leave your large labia at home this October 31 and opt for, say, something of the sexy fast food or animal variety instead.
Oh, and be safe all you scandalous dinosaurs. Keep reading »
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]
The key to selecting a successful pop culture-inspired Halloween costume is choosing someone who has an iconic or distinctive look — be it their hair, makeup, accessories or clothing. Nail that specific element of the costume that makes the inspiration immediately recognizable and you’re golden. With her signature pompadour, skinny suits, black-and-white details and bow-ties, singer Janelle Monae is one such example. (And let me use this as an opportunity to emphasize that if you’re a white or otherwise lighter-skinned human, you do not need nor should you use blackface as part of your Janelle Monae costume. It’s not necessary [proof!] and it’s wrong.) Best of all, you can probably either find many of the elements for this costume in your own closet — and if not, you can reuse whatever you buy in every day life! Score! Get the details on the costume elements above and find out how to do Janelle’s pompadour for yourself here. Keep reading »
