Bottoms up! Bwahahahaha! [$13/set, Fab]
I’m not interested in dressing up like sexy anything this Halloween. Hell, I don’t even want to go as a woman. I want to be He-Man, Master of the Universe. Well, more specifically, I want to dress up as Prince Adam just before he turns into He-Man, mostly because many of the elements of a Prince Adam costume can be worn again in some other non-Halloween context. By the power of Grayskull, feel free to copy me! All the deets, after the jump! Keep reading »
Halloween is an interesting night for hookups with its own peculiar array of pros and cons. One Hallow’s Eve back in my 20s, I remember having this realization as I made out with a guy at a party. He was dressed as Frankenstein. I’ve never gotten green greasepaint makeup all over myself while making out before … I wonder if it will make me break out?

A UK baker known as Miss Cakehead, famous for her anatomically correct treats and recently, the Human Meat Shop, has taken dessert to a macabre level with her limited edition line of STD cupcakes. The “treats” will be on sale for Halloween at the Eat Your Heart Out pop-up shop at London’s St. Batholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum. Despite how revolting they look, Miss Cakehead claims that the STD cupcakes have been helping educate people about safe sex. “The STD cakes have really been quite powerful in teaching people something … We’ve had people say it’s the first time they have thought about the risks of getting a disease,” she said. She also makes cancer cookies, carbuncle bars and infected toenail treats.
Arrghhhh!! I’m sorry. I love cupcakes. I have so much respect for party chefs. I think I want to be one in my next life. (That, or a ballet dancer. )I love anatomy and pathology. And science! I love education about safe sex. But these things do not go together. I do not want to eat genital warts. I don’t care if they’re made of fondant. Also, what do STDs have to do with Halloween? Please explain. [Metro UK]
