“I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take ME out and do WHATEVER I WANTED. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”
What could be more iconic than Uma Thurman’s turn as Mia Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”? The wife of mob kingpin Marsellus Wallace is instantly recognizable in the film’s famous promotional image which shows her laying lackadaisical on a bed, cigarette in one hand and pistol in the other. Beyond that, she plays a pivotal part in the film, and since its release there’s been mass imitation of the character’s darkly simple style. In the 17 years since “Pulp Fiction” first showed, nobody’s done the classic look better than the dance-crazed, drug-fueled Mrs. Mia Wallace. Her outfits from the movie are easily recreated, but channeling her attitude is another thing entirely. You’re on your own for that one. How to get everything else, after the jump! Keep reading »
After a thorough inspection of available costumes for men, I have come to the conclusion that the Halloween industry is conspiring to sabotage dudes’ chances of getting laid. There are just so, so many horribly unsexy Halloween costumes for men. We’ve showed you a bunch in the past, but believe it or not, there are more. Last time I checked, Spam was about as far from an aphrodisiac as you could get. But this is hardly the worst offender. Keep on clicking to see even more Halloween costumes that will guarantee you a sexless Halloween.
Now these are the kinds of sexy Halloween costumes that I approve of. Jillian Tamaki knows that the most important thing you can wear on Halloween is your sense of irony. I’m open to dressing as a Smelly Old Gym Sock this year. I wonder how you get it to smell really bad. [Danforth]
In Stanley Kubrick’s 1963 film adaptation of the controversial novel Lolita, Sue Lyons is a disturbingly uncanny Dolores Haze. She embodies the nymphet to the last gum-snapping, downy-limbed detail as she preens before her middle-aged lover Humbert Humbert. The film sees Lolita dressed precociously in heavily ruffled baby-doll dresses and, in her most famous image, little more than a halter-top bikini.
I can’t recommend emulating the character in any way other than her vintage wardrobe. But if you’re going all out this Halloween, a heady dose of her characteristic seduction can’t hurt! Keep reading »
When the dead walk and the world is plunged into chaos, the only dating advice that will matter is this: the couple that beheads zombies together, stays together. But that advice doesn’t just work in a dark future where corpses hunger for human flesh. It is very practical dating advice for right now, in these last, few remaining years when the deceased stay in their coffins, rather than clawing out from their graves.

Hey fellas! Have absolutely no idea what you’re gonna be for Halloween? Allow me to suggest consulting this infographic, which has graphed a plethora of traditional and unique Halloween costumes for dudes based on their sex appeal to the ladies. I’m not saying you must appeal to our collective lady boners by throwing on a lumberjack or Ryan Gosling in “Drive” costume; in fact, if you want to do the opposite, this chart suggests you dress up as Martin from “Human Centipede 2.” See, wasn’t that helpful?
Halloween is about turning heads and causing a ruckus.

I’m gonna be straight up; my version of this costume is not going to win you any awards at Comic-Con where real cosplayers hand-make their garb from scratch. Do you know how hard I looked for a burlap (and jute and hemp) corseted crop top? So hard. All that being said, I was determined to do this Inspiration Board because I knew one of the coolest characters from this year has absolutely been the bad ass Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones.” And talk about sexy! Bonus points if you get your man to dress up like Khal Drogo, especially if you have a man that you can pull of that hunk of sexy warrior meat. (Sorry, putting my nerdy girl boner away.) Anyway, check out how to get the look this Halloween, if you’re not willing to spend the next two weeks sewing your own costume out of a burlap sack. Keep reading »
