Still struggling with what to dress up as for Halloween? Us, too. But even if your costume is a disaster, you can get your makeup game on lock with one of our easy-peasy makeup tutorials. Here, Rachel and Ami show you how to get a vampy, gothy, darkly sexy look. Throw this look on with an all-black ensemble and go as a depressed high school goth girl! Or wear it with a little black dress and a witch’s hat, and pretend you’re a sexy witch (hey, we don’t judge). Take a peek at this makeup look and tell us how you’ll rock Halloween this year.
As much as we love dogs and cats, there are a whole lot of other animals out there — and they love celebrating Halloween, too. There’s a bunch of horses, rabbits, chickens, goats and ferrets who can’t wait to go trick-or-treating, and we’ve collected a few photos of some of the very best costumes.
I never watch horror movies because I am a total scaredy-cat and it doesn’t take much to give me serious nightmares (I slept in my brother’s room for six months after seeing “Scream” in middle school). But over the years I’ve found that even if you avoid the horror genre altogether, there are plenty of other terrifying movies lurking in the comedy, drama, adventure, and kids’ categories. If you’re looking for an unexpectedly scary movie to watch this Halloween, click through for 20 options, and please share other non-horror films that freak you out in the comments!
I have a love-hate relationship with “What Would You Do?”, the so-called ‘reality’ show that hires actors to enact controversial situations in public to gauge the response of random people. I don’t actually watch the show, but every time I read about one of the show’s episodes online — What will happen when this neo-Nazi group sits down at IHOP? — I’m off to the races to watch the shit out of that thing.
It’s inevitable, really, that they would do a show about Halloween and little kids costumes. Get your little black hearts ready: an adorable boy is going to find out from some busybody ladies at a Halloween store why he can’t be a princess for Halloween. Keep reading »
Looking for a Halloween costume that’s sure to win the Most Adorkable award? Dress up as a twee Hollywood starlet! All you have to do is clip on some bangs, adorn yourself in bows and polka dots, and strum a toy ukulele throughout the night. Bonus: if you play your cards right, you might get to bang Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Most these pieces can be found for cheap at thrift stores, but in case you’d rather do your shopping online, we’ve got everything you’ll need, after the jump! Keep reading »
Meet Erin Wommack! Last month, she entered and won the opportunity to party with Kim Kardashian and Midori in Hollywood! But first, she got the opportunity to be styled for the big event by celeb stylist George Kotsiopoulos (who appears on E!’s “Fashion Police”). In this video, check out how Erin got to spend her day and night in Hollywood, thanks to Midori…
Did you miss the Halloween Dog Parade at NYC’s Tompkins Square Park this weekend? No worries, we’ve got plenty of pics of the dogs all dressed up in costume — Evita! Mr. T! Mutt Romney! A Thanksgiving turkey! — to bring you up to speed.
I love that Archie Arnett went all out with his Batman costume, but my beloved big serious baby Abel is kind of just dressed in his usual half-assed fireman getup. I am pretty sure Abel and I have the same approach to Halloween, which is to wear our usual clothes with a Halloween accessory or two. We’re too busy doing other things, like being awesome, to get too worked up about the holiday. See a few more pics after the jump! Keep reading »
Katy Perry and on-again/off-again beau John Mayer celebrated Halloween a bit early this weekend, getting all dressed up as, uh, a vampire hunter with a pronounced chin and Bella Swan-meets-Snow White. I think. John’s costume, while well done, kind of makes me want to barf, but Katy looks bangin’ with jet black hair and red eyes. I know they’ll never last, but I’m glad they got to celebrate Halloween together. See a few more after the jump! [via Buzzfeed] [Photos: Mark Hunter/The Cobra Snake] Keep reading »
You probably know by now — after having been through a few dozen (give or take) Halloweens — how frustrating it is to be searching for a last minute costume, thinking “If only I had thought about this earlier!” And then you end up going as an astronaut — again — which is basically just your day clothes wrapped in aluminum foil. Things get especially tricky when you want to plan your costume with your partner — that can take some serious coordination! So let’s get brainstorming now with these awesome couples costumes.
