Neil DeGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, author and host of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” is a pretty big hero of mine. The way he talks about science makes it utterly captivating for everyone, even those of us who struggled in our high school science classes. No one makes the Big Bang sound sexier than NDGT, deal with it. Show your love for his brilliance by dressing up in his trademark celestial vest, dad jeans and sexy ‘stache this Halloween, inviting everyone in your orbit to come on journey on your spaceship of the imagination. (Turn this into a couple’s costume by getting a friend or date to dress up as Carl Sagan! All you really need is a turtleneck and blazer.) Keep reading »
“Orphan Black” is one of my favorite shows on TV, so who better to channel for Halloween then my favorite clone, Helena. (Or, if you’ve got a gang of girls, go as ALL the clones.) Chances are, you can pull a lot of this costume from your own closet — Helena is all about her army green hooded parka, basic tanks, grubby jeans and rugged boots, just make sure to distinguish yourself from the average street urchin by adding a curly blonde wig and red-rimmed eyes, “Bahhhhhh”-ing at everyone you meet, talking about your sestras, and pulling an array of snacks, like toast, sugar packets and fried chicken, from your coat pockets.

Forget jack o’ lanterns or pumpkin spice lattes, watching Maya the corgi playing with a pumpkin is the ultimate seasonal treat! [Tastefully Offensive]
The question is not, “Will you be Beyonce for Halloween?” it’s “Which Beyonce will you be for Halloween?” My personal fave Beyonce is the Beyonce from the music video for “***Flawless,” because I’ve never met a plaid shirt, pair of denim cutoffs or combat boots that I did not love, plus, her “***Flawless” dance moves are at least somewhat manageable to learn (unlike, say the choreography in “Blow”) and instantly recognizable. Wake up like this on October 31 with the pieces after the jump! Keep reading »
Yes, rosebudding. What can I say? I am a weirdo who thinks Halloween costumes based on grotesque sexual non-trends are hilarious! All this costume requires is as much rose-printed clothing and accessories as you can find — the more hideous and clashing the better, as this costume is obviously not about beautiful aesthetics. Then, simply wear your iPhone or smartphone around your neck on a lanyard and when people ask, “What are you for Halloween?” you can simply reply, “Rosebudding! Check out this GIF!” They will be shocked and horrified, which is exactly what the Halloween spirit is all about! Keep reading »
October is officially here, which means it’s time to break out the horror flicks, the costumes, the pumpkins and of course, your scary movie collection. Scary movies are just better in October. You can curl up with a blanket (because it’s perfect blanket weather), a pumpkin pie and a little Norman Bates ,and that is an ideal night. Plus there are 31 nights to scare yourself!
However, there are many things that horror movies do for us besides terrify us and force us to sleep with one eye open (and sometimes even a light on). Scary movies can actually teach us many things. They teach us that locking yourself in a room when the murderer is in a house is really stupid, and they also show you not to investigate a scary situation. (Seriously! Why do they all want to explore the basements and the attics?! No thanks.) Read more on YourTango.com…
