Played to perfection on “Boardwalk Empire” by my favorite hot mess-and-a half Paz de la Huerta, Lucy Danziger is a showgirl in every sense of the word. Intense, unpredictable, and attention-seeking, the former mistress of Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson went from the ragtag life of a Ziegfeld Follies performer to a pampered concubine. Eventually exhausted by Lucy’s antics, Nucky meets Margaret Schroeder, a clever Irish widow, and casts his former squeeze to the wayside. Now pregnant with the child of Nelson Van Alden, a Prohibition agent with a long-distance wife and an unyielding religious conviction, Lucy is a miserable shred of what she once was. I prefer to think of her restored to former glory as Nucky’s arm candy, draped in jewels and sumptuous furs.
Here’s your guide to channeling Lucy Danziger’s opulent 1920s look this Halloween, and remember to tune in to HBO Sunday nights at 9 p.m. for the next installment of “Boardwalk Empire”! Keep reading »
My dog Lucca, like me, is a total fan of the horror movie genre. We recently had a “Saw” movie marathon and she was captivated (I had to cover my eyes during the bloodier moments). I think it’s time I introduce her to some of the classics, however. Starting with “Nightmare on Elm Street.” I’m pretty sure once she’s seen it, she’ll be down to trick-or-treat as Freddy Kruger, just like this ridiculously adorable pug. (And don’t forget to send us pics of your pets in Halloween costumes!) [The Clearly Dope]
I’m a big fan of “Dexter” and love anything that references the show, creepy serial killers or vengeful murders. Yes, I’m kind of weird. So when I stumbled on this recipe to make candy blood slides similar to the ones Dexter uses to catalog his victims, well, I was thrilled to death. Get it? [Forkable]
I think you and your S.O. should strongly consider dressing up as a pair of giant boobies this Halloween. Tits always get noticed/ never go out of style. What more could you ask for from a Halloween costume? That’s right, absolutely nothing. [Buzzfeed]
We’re super excited for Halloween and can’t wait to get your Halloween pet pics! But in the meantime, we’ve collected some of our favorite animal costumes from around the web. Enjoy, and don’t forget to send yours in!
DUIs. They happen to the best of us. Well, maybe not the best of us. Or most of us. But they sure do happen to celebs a lot. I’ve come to expect this crap from Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. But Christina Aguilera’s drunk driving arrest? That was a surprise. When Christina and her boyfriend Matthew Rutler were pulled over on March 1 at 2:45 a.m., the po-po pronounced her bombed and noted she had trouble standing. The poor thing not only had to spend the night in jail, but had to take her mugshot sans red lipstick! The indignity!
I’m sure it’s a little episode the singer — and the producers of “The Voice” — would like to forget. But first you should pay homage to this hot mess with your very own Christina Aguilera Under Arrest Halloween costume. Keep reading »
Whoever decided to put a camera at the scariest point of Nightmares Fear Factory, a haunted house in Niagara Falls, is a genius. I never realized how freaking hilarious scared people look until I spent a solid hour last night looking at Nightmares’ Flickr stream. I think a road trip to Canada is in the near future. Click to look at some of the funniest scared s**tless people I have ever seen.
Dressing up with a pal is almost always better than going at it alone. That’s why we’ve assembled an array of great double-trouble pair costumes for you and your BFF to trick-or-treat with this Halloween!
You guys know I have a soft spot in my heart for Courtney Stodden, the teen bride who tweets almost exclusively in alliterations and singlehandedly keeps the frosted lipstick industry afloat. I also happen to think she would make the ultimate hot mess Halloween costume. The look requires very little in the realm of actual clothing, but I must warn you that it is physically demanding — a Courtney Stodden costume is not complete unless you’re teetering around in 8-inch platforms and giving fierce duck face all night. (Also! Don’t forget to use as many alliterations as possible in conversation! And bonus points for working in the word “cheeky.”) Click past the jump for all the deets! Keep reading »
I love a good lazy-girl Halloween costume. This super-cute iPod dress from Instructables.com is so easy that even I can handle it. All you need is a tube dress, iron on sheet transfers, a printer and an iron. You can download the iPod dress’ images straight from the Instructables site (which features lots of other DIY Halloween costumes as well). Grab the nearest fella in a black turtleneck, tell everyone he is Steve Jobs and – presto! You’ve got yourselves a couples costume. [Instructables.com]
