IKEA’s New Halloween Ad Turns Store Into “The Shining,” Is Scarier Than Assembling Furniture From Pictures

It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen “The Shining,” because it manages to scares the bejesus out of me every single time. I watch it every Halloween and force whoever’s with me to join, so I don’t have to be alone when the two little ghost girls show up and ask Danny to play…

Douchebag Dresses Up As Ray Rice For Halloween, Complete With Janay Rice Blow-Up Doll

I am not the slightest bit surprised that some bag of dicks decided it would be totally hilarious and clever to dress up as Ray Rice for Halloween. And not just any Ray Rice, mind you — but Ray Rice, domestic abuser, complete with a blow-up doll pinned to the ground like Rice’s then-fiance (now…

It’s a fact — Halloween breeds the best festive television. Of all the holidays that lead TV execs to scream, “WORK THAT IN, DAMNIT!” at their writing staff, October 31st gives sitcoms, crime shows, cartoons and dramas much more creative breathing room than the other biggies. Think about it — no one has to lear…

Baby Elephant Goes Ham Smashing Large Pumpkins, Falls & Can’t Get Up

Anybody who says they don’t like Halloween is lying. Everybody loves Halloween, including zoo animals. To help get you in the holiday spirit, take a cue from these pumpkin-smashing elephants who classily stomp on them until a younger elephant comes along and just goes totally ham. Kind of like the kid who submerges his entire…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Basic Bitch

Here’s what I’ve realized about basic bitch: I AM ONE. We all are. The list of basic bitch characteristics is lengthy and it’s pretty much impossible not to find some things you have in common with this much maligned archetype of supposedly boring femininity. For example: I love “Friends” reruns, SoulCycle, that new Taylor Swift…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Taylor “No Its Becky” Swift

I really kinda dig Taylor Swift. Her music is fun and sometimes, sadly, reflects my much-older dating woes, she’s smart and sassy, and she definitely has a sense of humor about her own fame. Case in point: when she wore this “No Its Becky” shirt out and about in NYC recently, a reference to a…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Mary Poppins

As I kid, I went through a phase where I watched “Mary Poppins,” starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, on a very, very regular basis. Mary Poppins was everything. Sassy, smart, opinionated, matter-of-fact, imaginative and beautiful. Come to think of it, my management style — “ruling with an iron fist of flowers,” as I…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Astrophysicist & Host Of “Cosmos,” Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Neil DeGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, author and host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” is a pretty big hero of mine. The way he talks about science makes it utterly captivating for everyone, even those of us who struggled in our high school science classes. No one makes the Big Bang sound sexier than NDGT, deal with…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Helena From “Orphan Black”

“Orphan Black” is one of my favorite shows on TV, so who better to channel for Halloween then my favorite clone, Helena. (Or, if you’ve got a gang of girls, go as ALL the clones.) Chances are, you can pull a lot of this costume from your own closet — Helena is all about her…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Beyonce In The “***Flawless” Music Video

The question is not, “Will you be Beyonce for Halloween?” it’s “Which Beyonce will you be for Halloween?” My personal fave Beyonce is the Beyonce from the music video for “***Flawless,” because I’ve never met a plaid shirt, pair of denim cutoffs or combat boots that I did not love, plus, her “***Flawless” dance moves

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Rosebudding

Yes, rosebudding. What can I say? I am a weirdo who thinks Halloween costumes based on grotesque sexual non-trends are hilarious! All this costume requires is as much rose-printed clothing and accessories as you can find — the more hideous and clashing the better, as this costume is obviously not about beautiful aesthetics. Then, simply…

October 31 is just around the corner, so I’ve begun looking for the perfect Halloween costume to trump last year’s “Sexy French Fries.” While browsing Yandy.com— which basically has every scandalous costume known to man— I found a ton of totally non-sexy characters and things that have been sexed up and, for some reason, turned into…
