32 Celebs That Didn’t Dress Up In Blackface This Halloween

Contrary to what Julianne Hough might have thought – and since apologized for – it is possible to get all dolled up for Halloween without being offensive and wearing someone’s skin color as a “costume.” These 32 other celebrities managed to dress up, some to the point of being unrecognizable, without donning blackface. What a treat!

Get Nicole Richie's Slacker Halloween Costume For Yourself!

If you’re like me, you’ll swear up and down you’re not going to do anything for Halloween this year, then accept an invite to a costume party at the very last minute. Don’t be that jerk who doesn’t show up in costume — be that jerk who shows up in just cat ears and calls it a costume! Nicole Richie did just that at a soiree in Hollywood this week — and, okay, it wasn’t even a costume party, but still. Details on the four purr-fect cat ears above are after the jump! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 15 Skulls & Skeletons On Etsy

You don’t have to dress up on Halloween to get into the holiday’s goth spirit. I may not be in the market for a sexy dinosaur costume, but I am on the search for some skull and skeleton accessories. And lucky me, on Etsy they abound! Mwahahahaha…

Because Blackface Wasn’t Enough For These Terrible People

Via Gawker, these Quincy, Massachusetts, partiers decided it would be funny and cool to dress up and pose as George Zimmerman shooting a bloodied Trayvon Martin for Halloween. According to the site, the girl who posted the photo to Facebook has since deleted it from her account there and on Instagram. And for awhile, the dude dressed as Zimmerman had the photo as his profile shot — he’s since changed it and locked his account. But the internet never forgets. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? Who raised them? And why did no one in their lives stop them and say, “hey, maybe this costume of yours is not only a bad idea, but horrifically offensive and cruel, you know, because you’re mocking the death of an innocent child, you racist shitbag”? I don’t understand. [Gawker]

Julianne Hough Does Blackface For “Orange Is The New Black” Halloween Costume

Julianne Hough apparently did not get the memo that wearing blackface, no matter the reason — yes, even when dressing up as Crazy Eyes from “Orange is the New Black” — is racist and not okay. Melanin is not a costume! White people, you can dress up as someone of another race for Halloween without darkening your skin! Seriously, JUST SKIP THAT PART. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]

UPDATE: Julianne has issued the following apology:

I am a huge fan of the show “Orange is the New Black,” actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.
