Everyone’s wearing costumes, which makes the whole thing much more exciting (and confusing), plus there’s usually copious amounts of spiked punch to be consumed, “Monster Mash” dancing to do, and cheesy pickup lines to be attempted. Overall, it’s one of the most unpredictable nights of the year. One thing you can always count on, though, is that you’ll meet these nine people on the Halloween party circuit… Keep reading »

  • “Sesame Street” issued a cease-and-desist letter to put the kibosh on Sexy Big Bird’s unauthorized costumes. The letter was directed to Yandy.com, a Halloween costume web site whose multitudes of “sexy” get-ups will have you gagging. The Sesame Street Workshop is not buying that Yandy’s “Exclusive Yellow Dress With Stockings” is not just a straight-up Big Bird knockoff.  [The FW]

  • Drake has finally graduated from high school at age 25. Congratulations!  Guess DeGrassi did not issue diplomas? [Celebrity Cafe]
  • Ukraine’s “Barbie flu” trend of women using plastic surgery to look more like Barbie is disturbing. [The Week]

Every year for Halloween, I used to dress up as a gypsy. I was a lazy little kid, I guess, and I didn’t want to make some complicated costume. So I just put on a long skirt and a bunch of my mom’s jewelry and wrapped a bandana around my head, and people were like, “Are you a hippie?” And I was like, “Obviously not. I’m wearing a sash. Come on, people.”

Halloween may be just around the corner, but I’m not spooked to admit that I seek to channel a little bit of “Hocus Pocus” every day of the year (it does star the future Carrie Bradshaw, after all). You can cop the hip witch look, too — just add chunky jewelry and black boots and go, no broomstick required. Keep reading »

If you’re looking for couples’ Halloween costumes that will really get people talking, look no further than the year in pop culture for fodder. I’ve purposefully left Fifty Shades of Grey off the list because I heard that it topped the list of the trendy costumes. And … well, NO. I refuse. We can come up with something else. You don’t need to be Anastasia and Christian. Here are a few other couples’ costume ideas and some tips for how to make them happen.
