Halloween Costume Inspiration: Taylor “No Its Becky” 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 an amazing Tumblr post that went viral, in which a photo of Taylor is identified as some random chick named Becky, who used to be happy and popular until she snorted marijuana at a party. And what do ya know, this moment in random pop culture memery is the perfect inspiration for any Swifty in need of a Halloween costume. Just don’t forget to bring Olivia Benson! Read on for details!

Homeowner Takes Halloween Decor To The Next Level With “Bohemian Rhapsody” Light Show

Halloween
And You Thought YOUR Decorations Were Impressive

Friends Nick Thomas and Steve Jandick begin prepping their Halloween decorations a year ahead of time. They’ve been doing hardcore light shows for the past 15 years, but this season’s spooky lineup at the “Thomas Halloween House” in Naperville, Illinois may be their best year. It’s set to songs by artists like Queen, AC/DC, System of a Down, Michael Jackson and Animal Collective. Last year’s show had about 4,000 visitors per weekend! [Neatorama]

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Mary Poppins

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 put it — is inspired by her approach to child (and parent) rearing. Anyway, “Mary Poppins” is also on Broadway right now, so why not dress up as everyone’s favorite governess for Halloween this year? Best of all, a lot of these items you can wear again as separates.

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

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 it. Show your love for his brilliance by dressing up in his trademark celestial vest, dad jeans and sexy ‘stache this Halloween, inviting everyone in your orbit to come on journey on your spaceship of the imagination. (Turn this into a couple’s costume by getting a friend or date to dress up as Carl Sagan! All you really need is a turtleneck and blazer.) Keep reading »

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Helena From “Orphan Black”

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 army green hooded parka, basic tanks, grubby jeans and rugged boots, just make sure to distinguish yourself from the average street urchin by adding a curly blonde wig and red-rimmed eyes, “Bahhhhhh”-ing at everyone you meet, talking about your sestras, and pulling an array of snacks, like toast, sugar packets and fried chicken, from your coat pockets.
