Halloween is the most socially appropriate time of year to splatter fake blood on your walls and pretend that bowl of peeled grapes is your eyeball collection. But how far is too far when it comes to really scaring the bejesus out of people? Family members of victims murdered by Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy say a “serial killer”-themed haunted house in New York City is it. Keep reading »

If someone showed up at my apartment one night in the Rubber Man suit from “American Horror Story,” I would be thrilled for a kinky night of fun with Zachary Quinto or Evan Peters. But if that night is October 31st, it’s just some fucking trick-or-treater who shopped at Target this Halloween. BUZZKILL. But, hey, the gimp suit is only $42.49: plenty of money leftover for duct tape and ping pong paddles. [Target.com via Twitter.com/DylanMcDermott]
Tell me this baby isn’t way cuter than the slew of pea pods, lions and angels we usually see on Halloween. Somehow that plump face perfectly showcases character Sophia Petrillo’s trademark sass on “The Golden Girls.” I’m now wondering if they actually sell pressed velvet pants for infants. Is there a granny-inspired infant clothing line I don’t know about? [F**k Yeah Babies via NYmag.com] Keep reading »

Meet reader Kara. She scares the s**t out of me. She dressed up as Regan from “The Exorcist” for Halloween this year and will be haunting my nightmares for the foreseeable future. Thanks, Kara. Please don’t drag me to hell.
Kara is not the only Frisky reader to send in their costume photos, in fact, over 30 of you responded to our callout, officially making me feel like the biggest sour puss ever for not dressing up this year. I’ve learned my lesson. We’ve got a Fraggle! Tributes to the Day of the Dead! Dexter Morgan and a hapless victim! Joan Holloway! A Pan-Am Stewardess! And many, many, many more! Happy Belated Halloween — and looking forward to seeing what you wear next year!
Did you get dressed up for Halloween this year? We want to see! Email your Halloween pics to email@example.com OR post them to The Frisky’s Facebook page – we’ll put together a slideshow of reader Halloween pics to appear on the site later today or early tomorrow. Above, a slideshow of a bunch of Frisky reader Halloween costumes from last year, and after the jump, even more. So don’t forget to send us a photo of your costume (firstname.lastname@example.org) so you can be included in this year’s slideshow! Keep reading »
- Be careful, trick-or-treating sluts, because you might get raped! A conservative think tank-er named Charlotte Allen penned a piece for the Los Angeles Times about — I think? — how women shouldn’t tease men with skimpy outfits and then complain when we get raped. Or it might be about crazy, irrational feminists get upset by slutty Halloween costumes but then we throw SlutWalk protests and that makes us hypocrites. It’s hard to say. Anyway, the best part is when Allen warns us women to be “careful about where [you] flash [your] treasure.” I shall henceforth be referring to my ladyparts as my “treasure,” unironically.

- California Baptist University expelled Domaine Javier, 24, for “fraud” and “identity concealment” after she came out as trans on an episode of MTV’s “True Life.” [Queerty]
- The Michigan House of Representatives approved a bill to eliminate domestic partner benefits for all state employees. In response, the faculty at the University of Michigan are threatening a mass exodus if the bill passes. [Think Progress] Keep reading »
It’s recently come to Fake Chloe Sevingy’s attention that she loves Hallo-we’en. And is, in fact, scared of very many things, among them, “Three day weekends with Casey Spooner, Mennonites, the unbearable lightness of being, and uncomfortable silences.” Aren’t we all? [YouTube]

Valentine’s Day may be for couples in love, but Halloween is for singles looking to mingle! (Hey, pagans knew how to party.) You definitely don’t want to miss your chance at action so sweet you’ll want to bag it up and give it all away! So, how do you get it done on this hot holiday? Here are five easy steps for hooking up on Halloween…
Horror movies might seem like the obvious choice for a night in with your date on Halloween, the scariness leading to inevitable cuddling. Yet the cannon of less terrifying spooky flicks can give you more helpful romance advice than your average self-help book. And really, do you want to watch a bunch of movies that teach you that after you have sex you’ll get chopped up by an ax murderer? Or one that shows you that even after a few indiscretions, ranging from marrying another to sleeping with a manic transsexual, your partner will be all too happy take you back, or at least join you in a water orgy? That’s the kind of lesson I want to learn as I slowly slip into a candy coma. Keep reading »
