Some people wear Halloween costumes to disguise themselves, while others pick costumes that reveal the truth behind who they really are — namely, an asshole. That’s what the “Adult Lady Boy Drag Fancy Dress Costume” will do for anyone who purchased it before Amazon UK removed it from their site.READ MORE »

As a kid, I always gravitated toward horror comic books and movies — the darker, the better. I’m sure my parents never thought it would be something I would one day base a career on, curating for film festivals and now Shudder! I love finding films and sharing them with others; it’s kind of like… READ MORE »

In case you haven’t heard, there’s not just a “war on Christmas” now – there’s also a “war on Halloween.” Good lord.

Ask for, nay, casually mention something and the internet delivers.

For example, two years ago, I ordered their Sexy Dinosaur costume, and last year, I… READ MORE »

If having a laugh at the expense of trans women like Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t sound like your ideal Halloween, here’s another tasteless costume to consider: Cecil the Lion’s “Killer Dentist” Walter Palmer!

AnytimeCostumes.com is selling this “Call Me Caitlyn” costume in its men’s section, offering dudes (well, the costume is “unisex” but let’s be real) the chance to “dress as the softer side of the popular Olympian,” READ MORE »

Today in kitschy marriage proposals I would never, ever want: Kelly Canipe is a huge horror fan.

Aside from trick-or-treating, dressing up in costume and carving pumpkins, Jimmy Kimmel has created my favorite, newest Halloween tradition that I truly hope will last forever.

I’m sure your baby’s pumpkin, lion and pea pod costumes were super cute and all, but the winner of Halloween this year goes to the one and only “Ruth Baby Ginsburg.” Halloween may have passed, but this child’s legend lives on in the real Notorious RBG.
