Halloween Inspiration Board: Taylor Swift In The Video For “22”

The best part about dressing up as Taylor Swift in the music video for "22"? It's made up entirely of pieces you'll wear again and again. Well, maybe not the heart sunglasses. You can give those to your niece or raver friend or save them for next year's "Lolita" costume. Whatever. To make sure everyone…

VOTE! Our WTF?! Halloween Costume Battle Continues— And It’s Getting Punny!

There are so many things wrong with both of these costumes. We present to you a vampire receiving oral sex, hence the clever name “Down For The Count,” and the literal interpretation of the “Shit Hitting The Fan.” I would not—I repeat—would NOT have sex with either of these people on even my most intoxicated,…

Halloween Inspiration Board: Virginia Johnson From “Masters Of Sex”

I haven't been religiously watching HBO's Showtime's "Masters Of Sex" -- which is about sex researchers Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson -- but any show that would inspire a Halloween costume that involves carrying around a giant dildo vibrator is fine by me!

VOTE! Which Halloween Costume Screams “Overcompensating”?

Both equally repulsive and offensive Halloween costumes, my initial knee-jerk reaction to both the human ring toss costume and sex costume would be to crotch-kick the person wearing them. Unfortunately, doing so would likely land me behind bars— an ironic twist to my “Orange Is The New Black” costume. Instead, let’s just vote on which…

A New Website Will Let You Know How Haunted Your House Is

Because most states don't have any laws about disclosing a death occurrence on a property -- whether it was a murder, suicide, accident, illness or natural death -- there's nowhere for buyers or renters to go to ensure that their dream apartment doesn't sit on top of a cemetery or something nice like that. Thank…

Something happens to Halloween when you become an adult. The holiday is no longer a night known for trick-or-treating, sugar highs and precious children dressed up as fairy tale characters.
