Dog Dressed In Judge Judy Halloween Costume

I mean, the title of the post says it all, no? There’s just something about a dog in glasses, a wig and judge robe with its tongue sticking out that really gets our attention, ya know? If you know what’s good for ya, you’ll truck on over to The New York Daily News to see…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: A New Jersey Housewife

Careening through life high on drama is best left to the ladies of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But ripping off their Jersey girl style just for one night will do your bubbies proud! Lucky for you, it’s as easy as making a trip to my fair state’s biggest temple of worship (that’s “the…

Haunted Attractions Across The Country

Watching a scary movie on Halloween is so lame. Instead, you should go out and mingle with the undead, ghosts, and ghouls as you get scared half to death at a haunted attraction. Today’s haunted houses, ships, mortuaries, and hayrides are nothing like the cheesy attractions at carnivals you might remember from your childhood. Nowadays,…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Matador

The other day I was walking down the street wearing a shirt with a frilly collar and black skinny jeans, and, suddenly, it hit me! If I put on a cropped jacket, some red knee socks, and carried around a red cape or blanket, I could fight bulls like there’s no tomorrow. Now, if only…

Halloween Costume FAIL: Woman Arrested For Stealing Sexy Cop Outfit

Sure, we all know thousands, maybe millions of women want to don slutty Halloween costumes come Oct. 31, but what you might not have considered is that all that pleather and latex and crappy lace ain’t cheap, no matter how crappy it looks. One South Carolina woman was so driven to the brink of insanity…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Anna Wintour

If you’ve ever wanted to be truly feared, we’ve got the costume for you. We’re not talking “scary” in the way that zombies or pre-Twilight vampires are. That’s child’s play. We’re talking grown women (and men) crying in closets in your wake. For that kind of terror, Vogue editor Anna Wintour is your only option.

Halloween No-No: Bad Tattoo Costumes

Marisa at Needles and Sins, who we interviewed yesterday, has a terrific post on the most horrid of Halloween costumes: bad tattoos. If this Lydia the Tattooed Lady getup doesn’t disturb you, perhaps this Tattooed Dog costume will. “[W]hat’s really bugging me here [isn’t] that companies are making a buck mocking our art,” says Marisa.

Which Dead Celeb Will You Contact At The Halloween Tweance?

I don’t know what you’re doing on Oct. 30, but I will (skeptically) be attending the first-ever Twitter séance—yes, a Twéance—led by British psychic Jayne Wallace. Séances have been going on in dark rooms with creepy lighting since the mid-1800s, but apparently the spirit-channeling ceremony is ready for a 21st century makeover. That’s why Angel…

What Not To Wear On Halloween If You’re A Guy

The Sexist has created another one of her hilarious roundups of the most horrifyingly awful, supposedly sexy Halloween costumes. This time, she takes on pseudo-sexy costumes for dudes, and they’re a real horror. (The worst of the “sexy” costumes for women is here.) While Sexy Pirate with a Big Sword and Sexy Cop in a…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Amelia Earhart

Amelias are hot s**t right now. There’s me, of course, and then there’s Amelia Earhart, the legendary female aviator who will be immortalized in a movie starring Hilary Swank later this year. Amelia’s style was already super fierce and I love a costume that allows me to buy pieces that I could wear again. Check…

Go Trampy Trick-Or-Treating With Your Pet!

Because no dog should have to leave their sex appeal in their lingerie drawer, pet owners can now dress their furry friend in a slutty Halloween costume to match their own! Spoiled Rotten Doggies offers identical costumes for trampy ladies and their pooches — like Treasure Hunting Pirates (left) and Sexy French Maids! Lucca and…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Maryann Forrester From “True Blood”

Didn’t you just love to hate Maryann Forrester in season two of “True Blood“? Author Charlaine Harris has one helluva imagination, but it was creator/executive producer Alan Ball who brought Maryann to life. Even though she was a rather annoying villain (surprisingly, though, she was less annoying than Sookie Stackhouse), none of this season would…

Costumes For Trick-Or-Treating Or Turning Tricks?

Halloween is the one time of year when grown women let their hair down and bring their hemlines up as they become risque revelers at parties and parades across the country. But raunchy costumes aren’t only for those above the age of consent this year. A growing trend at costume stores and websites is offering…

Quick Pic: What Not To Wear This Halloween

I’ve seen a lot of really moronic Halloween costumes in my day, but this “eco-friendly” Go Green Girl Costume takes the cake. If global warming eliminates getups like this one, I’m all for it. [Jezebel]…

Agent Provocateur Makes Halloween Easy

Halloween is right around the corner, and I’ll readily admit that my costume has yet to be decided. Agent Provocateur must be counting on the fact that girls all over will not only wait until the last minute to decide their alter ego for the night, but also on the idea that Halloween is a…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Nancy Spungen

We can’t help but be fascinated by Sid Vicious’ ill-fated (not to mention ill-mannered) girlfriend. She was kind of like the Courtney Love of her time, except way less rich, famous and, if you can believe it, even more tragic. To get in the mood, blast Never Mind The Bollocks, watch “Sid and Nancy” o…

Shot by Michelangelo di Battista, “Mystery in the Moonlight” features Schiffer grappling with the Swamp Thing and other scary creatures of the night.

The easy-to-apply adhesive nails sport images of skulls and diamond-like charm…

The Halloween Inspiration Board: The Queen Of Hearts

With Tim Burton’s psychedelic version of “Alice in Wonderland” in the works, I’ve gotten newly excited about following a white rabbit down a rabbit hole. I don’t really want to be Alice cause she’s booooring, so I think I’m gonna be the Queen of Hearts this year. It’s a simple getup to put together. Get…
