Maybe you work in office that frowns on Halloween celebrations. or anything else remotely fun. Or maybe you think nail art is too out-there and are waiting for a festive occasion when it’s OK to look costume-y. Or maybe you just want to look like you have slime dripping of your fingernails. Well, ladies, you’re in luck! I’ve poked around on Pinterest (such a grueling job I have) to find some of the funkiest Halloween-inspired nails. Some will require the expertise of your manicurist, while others you can figure out in your own bathroom. Just make sure no one shouts “BOO!” while you’re trying to do your nails, okay?
I’ve written before about how much I appreciate people who go balls out on Halloween, and I even put together a slideshow of scary Halloween decoration ideas that included a doll in a blood-filled bathtub, but even so, something about these “decorative” fake dead bodies a man set up in his Oklahoma driveway kinda rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it’s because they are SO realistic, or because there’s no supernatural element to it (like zombies, ghosts, or demons), or that the police have been called to the scene by concerned neighbors. “Just trying to scare people,” says Johnnie Mullins, the mastermind behind the bloody decor, “that’s what I like to do.” The scene is definitely scary (hence the 911 calls), but the fear comes from a very realistic portrayal of violence and death. It’s also not in the context of a Halloween party or some other situation where you might expect the host to try to freak out their guests — anyone walking by will see these bodies. What do y’all think about this? Are these fake corpses brilliant or in bad taste? Sound off in the comments! [News 9]
Twerkin’ like Miley not your style this Halloween? Go the alternative route by channeling your inner teenage witchy goth as Lorde, the rising star on the pop scene. Lorde has got a thing for black mesh body-con dresses, almost black makeup, and the kind of jewelry that’s likely been cleansed by some new agey priestess. Memorize the lyrics to “Royals” or “Tennis Court,” wear your hair in long waves or plaited into a crown braid (as above) following this tutorial, and you’ll be a dead ringer for next year’s big Grammy winner (I predict, anyway). Deets on the items above, after the jump! Keep reading »
Okay, so I’ve never actually seen an episode of “Bob’s Burgers,” but apparently it’s popular and the character of Tina Belcher sounds like my spirit animal. At 14 years old, she has a voracious sex drive and a uniboob, and her favorite things are horses, rainbows, zombies, and writing erotic fiction. Like I said, spirit animal. Something tells me I will be watching “Bob’s Burgers” tonight. Oh, anyway, the other great thing about Tina is that she makes for possibly the easiest Halloween costume ever — chances are you can source most of this stuff from your closet. But if not, we’ve figured it out for you. Just don’t forget to practice your moaning. Keep reading »
There are so many options for Halloween costumes and so many of them seem to be awful. This year, we’ll be giving awards out to the best of the worst the holiday has to offer.
There are sexy/edible costumes and then there are terrifying/edible costumes. Topping the list of bizarre food costumes this year is this “Teen Midget Apple Costume.” Where shall we begin? Let’s start with the un-PC name. We can only assume that this piece of fruit is meant to be worn by either teens or little people — even though they vary wildly in size. Not that it matters, one look at this apple’s face will send even the most un-scareable trick ‘or treater running for the hills. Seriously, this is much more terrifying than “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” [$35.99 Ebay]
