This week we’ve been rounding up our favorite hot messes and telling you how to get their look for Halloween. This particular category would not be complete with out the original mess, Courtney Love. The nice thing about Courtney is that she has so many iconically messy moments to choose from. One that will always hold a special place in my heart is the night that she decided to Tweet a series of photos of herself in bed with her pet turtle. Absolutely brilliant. Click through to see how to get Courtney’s look and some other ideas if you want to be a hot mess this Halloween.
Played to perfection on “Boardwalk Empire” by my favorite hot mess-and-a half Paz de la Huerta, Lucy Danziger is a showgirl in every sense of the word. Intense, unpredictable, and attention-seeking, the former mistress of Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson went from the ragtag life of a Ziegfeld Follies performer to a pampered concubine. Eventually exhausted by Lucy’s antics, Nucky meets Margaret Schroeder, a clever Irish widow, and casts his former squeeze to the wayside. Now pregnant with the child of Nelson Van Alden, a Prohibition agent with a long-distance wife and an unyielding religious conviction, Lucy is a miserable shred of what she once was. I prefer to think of her restored to former glory as Nucky’s arm candy, draped in jewels and sumptuous furs.
Here’s your guide to channeling Lucy Danziger’s opulent 1920s look this Halloween, and remember to tune in to HBO Sunday nights at 9 p.m. for the next installment of “Boardwalk Empire”! Keep reading »
My dog Lucca, like me, is a total fan of the horror movie genre. We recently had a “Saw” movie marathon and she was captivated (I had to cover my eyes during the bloodier moments). I think it’s time I introduce her to some of the classics, however. Starting with “Nightmare on Elm Street.” I’m pretty sure once she’s seen it, she’ll be down to trick-or-treat as Freddy Kruger, just like this ridiculously adorable pug. (And don’t forget to send us pics of your pets in Halloween costumes!) [The Clearly Dope]
I’m a big fan of “Dexter” and love anything that references the show, creepy serial killers or vengeful murders. Yes, I’m kind of weird. So when I stumbled on this recipe to make candy blood slides similar to the ones Dexter uses to catalog his victims, well, I was thrilled to death. Get it? [Forkable]
I think you and your S.O. should strongly consider dressing up as a pair of giant boobies this Halloween. Tits always get noticed/ never go out of style. What more could you ask for from a Halloween costume? That’s right, absolutely nothing. [Buzzfeed]
We’re super excited for Halloween and can’t wait to get your Halloween pet pics! But in the meantime, we’ve collected some of our favorite animal costumes from around the web. Enjoy, and don’t forget to send yours in!
