Not everyone enjoys dressing in costume for Halloween, but that doesn’t you need to be a total Debbie Downer and wear your normal clothes on Saturday, either. Jewelry of the spider, bat, or vampire varieties is the easiest way to acknowledge it’s Oct. 31 without donning a full-on costume.
If you’d like to take things up a notch without putting on a “sexy fill-in-the-blank” outfit, go for these spider knee highs. They’d look great — elegant even — with a simple black dress. And unless your skirt is lady-of-the-night short, only your suitor, perhaps dressed as Prince Charming, will be privy to the spiders’ webs at the top of the socks.

At this point, I’ve experienced my share of Halloweens, and I’ve worn my share of wacky costumes. I’ve been a geisha girl (I even wore geta), a witch (it was hard to breathe through that green plastic mask), a deranged prom queen (I wrote “Heterosexual Imperative” across my forehead for a reason I can no longer recall — it was college, what can I say?), Loana from “One Million Years B.C.” (my then-boyfriend handmade me a fur miniskirt and matching bikini top out of a vintage fur coat), a ghost (a sheet with holes for eyes — a last minute kind of thing), a creature from outer space (green and white striped Dr. Denton pajamas with feet, huge green sunglasses, and a green knit hat with a pom-pom), Dido (with a sword that I had “fallen” on and blood), and many more. What were you and what are you going to be this year? Confess your Halloween best in the comments! Keep reading »
Almost Halloween or extreme fetishism? Designer Jaiden rVa James’ SM hoods will put your eye out. [10/26/09, London] Keep reading »
I want to hate this costume because it doesn’t represent the ’90′s riot grrl scene at all (think: underground feminist punk like Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Bratmobile). But I’d much rather have my little niece go as a botched riot grrl for Halloween than Noah Cyrus‘ sexy witch with dominatrix boots get-up! [HalloweenCostumes4U] Keep reading »
Our photo service, Splash News, says this is a photo of Suri Cruise and Katie Holmes shopping for Halloween costumes. Since we don’t see any costumes in this pic, we’re wondering what little Suri is going to be for Halloween:
- Baby Maverick from “Top Gun”?
- A princess? (She’s got the outfits for it!)
- Baby “Risky Business”?
- Shiloh Jolie-Pitt?

Oh Carrie Prejean, we’ve had so much fun getting to know the former Miss California and her distaste for gay marriage in the last year. She’s become one of the most recognizable beauty queens that we’ve ever had the pleasure to see actin’ a fool on national TV! In fact, she makes the perfect Halloween costume, especially if you live in a warm part of the country and can feasibly wear a bathing suit at the end of October. (If not, a tacky white evening dress is a good substitute.) Keep reading »

Behold 9-year-old Noah Cyrus! Far be it from us to slut-shame a fourth grader, but would it kill ol’ Billy Ray and Tish to insist she be a little girl for just a while longer? It’s not too hard to say, “No, you’re not dressing as a sexy witch with dominatrix boots for Halloween!” Because God knows after pole-dancing at the Teen Choice Awards, Miley‘s childhood is a lost cause.

Michael K.’s latest “Hot Slut of the Day” over at Dlisted is the mind-bogglingly weird Lady Elegance Hair Coloring Brush. WTF!? I don’t know what’s more bizarre: the idea of making a hairbrush that will excrete goo that will supposedly fetchingly dye your hair, or that people will actually buy a brush that purports to dye your hair in anything other than what surely must turn out to be a hot mess. You can buy it off Amazon for around $20, but why the heck would you want to do that? According to the product description, it “gives you perfect, at home hair color so you don’t have to spend a fortune at the salon.” Need further instructions? “Just fill this special brush with your color of choice, turn on and start coloring.” Why do I feel that would have disastrous consequences? Also, it requires batteries. Unless you’re going as Kate Gosselin for Halloween, I’m going to have to recommend a pass. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
We’ve already showed you how fashion bloggers make insane Halloween costumes from clothes they already own, but we realize that not everyone has a wardrobe that can go from George Washington to Frida Kahlo in five minutes flat. Luckily, there are a few costumes that literally anyone can pull off without buying a thing. Don’t do Halloween on the cheap; do it on the free! A few ideas, after the jump. Keep reading »
