Lord knows my 2010 highlight was getting a personalized video message from the Old Spice Guy, aka my boyfriend, aka Isaiah Mustafa. (Not really on the boyfriend part, sadly.)

It didn’t occur to me until I saw this article on how makeup artist Gucci Westman (um, seriously?) turned a naked Kim Kardashian silver that the bravest among us females may be rocking this look come Halloween. So, how’d they turn Kim into the platinum version of Goldfinger? “I wanted it to look like Kim was dipped in silver, like she was liquid,” the artist said of her shellacking plan. All it took was some Kryolan Aquacolor silver body paint, Make Up For Ever silver powder, and a tablespoon of pigment in the Kryolan. Don’t have any of those ingredients handy? You can find them at Make Up For Ever. Of course, if you’re planning on leaving the house, you might also want to don a silver thong or panties and a silver bra or pasties. Boobs and booty not included. [W]

We understand that since American Apparel is having financial troubles, the company might try to get creative with its ways to push merchandise. A product of this is perhaps the Costume Builder you’ll now find online. Except … it would appear that American Apparel’s idea of a “Halloween costume” is shockingly similar to the outfits the retailer normally peddles (which, to some, may indeed be quite scary). Above, you’ll find costumes for a “Disco Chick,” an “Archaeologist,” and a “Slumber Party” (which apparently can be manifested as a person wearing a scrunchy). To be fair, some of the other styling suggestions are a bit more traditional, like the hula girl, bumble bee, and pirate. So it might not actually be such a bad idea if you’re in need of a last-minute or easy costume and want to be able to wear it again–unless you cut it up like a lot of the themes encourage.
Or you could just go as an American Apparel employee. [American Apparel] Keep reading »
