Dogs and babies have the same effect on me as old people: They’re adorable and I often find myself wanting to take them home. So when I found out that TJ.Maxx and Marshalls will be selling matching Halloween costumes for babies and pups, my uterus almost exploded. I know petnapping and kidnapping is illegal, so if I could just borrow someone’s child and puppy on October 31st that would be greatly appreciated. Here are some of my favorite matching sets from both affordable brands above, along with some others. (Also, after the jump, scroll down to see the cutest GIF of your life.) Keep reading »
I thought I wanted to be a slightly skanky Elsa from “Frozen” for Halloween this year, until this happened. HalloweenCostumes.com has created a DIY guide to making your own 3-Breasted Woman Halloween Costume, and all you need is some rubber boobs, pink fabric, a shower curtain, scissors, hot glue gun and a wig. Even though the real three-boobed woman, Jasmine Tridevil, turned out to be a hoax, we can still dream of the day when ladies can frolic around with as many breasts as they want, free of judgement. Check out the DIY tutorial here, and, while you’re at it, you might as well sing your third boob a love song. Before you know it, you’ll be the breast dressed … er, best dressed … at the costume party.
I know Halloween is over, but evidence is still surfacing of the biggest costume gaffes of the holiday. Case in point: two British college students, Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, ended up on the cover of The Sun for their ill-advised “sexy 9/11″ costumes — complete with American flags, smoke, flames and people jumping to their death.
No one is sure what the 19-year-old Chester University students were thinking when they entered a Halloween costume competition in these offensive get-ups. Worst part: they won contest. How? Even worse part: One of their fathers is a pilot who flies planes in the US. Huh?
Both the club and the university are investigating the incident. In the meantime, Amber and Annie have issued an apology for what may be the most ill-advised costume choice of the year. “We never meant to be offensive, but we apologize if any offense was caused. The idea was to depict a modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke,” they said.
That still doesn’t explain what the hell they were thinking. You can see another picture of their fallen Twin Towers costumes after the jump. [Gawker] Keep reading »
Wait one second, Fat-Shaming Trick-Or-Treat Lady! Before you claim the Worst House To Visit On Halloween Award, we have another contender! This past Halloween night, some trick-or-treaters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, discovered anti-abortion business card-sized literature amongst their bounty of Reese’s peanut butter cups, M&Ms and Starbursts. The cards are printed with pictures of fetuses alongside messages like “I am not a clump of cells, I am a human being,” “Am I not human?” and “53 million killed.” What a waste of paper! And not just because the anti-choice messaging is crap. I mean, clearly the pamphlets come as a complete disappointment to kids who expected candy and instead got finger cuts. Even a goddamn Mounds would be better! But I can’t imagine any parent who’s actually on the fence about abortion would be impressed by tactics like this. I mean, they went out for a nice evening trick-or-treating with their little Snow White or whatever and ended the night having to explain what abortion is to a six-year-old. I’m sure that really swayed them. [via Jezebel]
Look at his little hair buns! I don’t care for the One Direction’s music, or whatever they’re called, but I like this cheeky Harry Styles lad. I do not, however, like the person who took these photos. Learn how to focus, brah. [Buzzfeed]
Australia doesn’t even celebrate Halloween, but that didn’t stop Queen Bey and her crew from whipping up some costumes while on tour. Beyoncé dressed as an angel, but a kinda devilish one. She seems to be enjoying that ass grab from a severed zombie hand a bit too much.
But enough about Bey, though — what did Blue Ivy wear as a costume? [Idolator]
