OMFG. A baby in an LED costume. These are the moments when I long to be a parent — so I can dress my baby up to look like a glow-in-the-dark stick figure on Halloween. Please, please, please parents of the world, let me live vicariously through you by putting this glow-y thing on your baby next week. [Videogum]
If you’re not planning to hand out candy or take your niece trick-or-treating, chances are you’ll be spending this Halloween at a party.

Nana would be so proud.
Probably two of the most distasteful Halloween costumes I’ve ever seen are going head-to-er … head for the second round of Semi-Finals in our WTF?! Costume Battle! Keep reading »
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 understands you’re dressed up as Taylor Swift, bring along a guitar and an ex-boyfriend voodoo doll. Feeling 22? I should hope so. Details after the jump! Keep reading »
Some of us are A-OK with being a sexy pizza slice for Halloween, but others would like the opportunity to buy a costume that’s more full-coverage. Perhaps an entire pizza? Or a pizza maker? A petition penned to Halloween costume retailer Party City’s CEO requested that very thing — realistic, non-sexy costume options for women. Jezebel reports that petition was started by high school senior, Maya Behn, although Change.org sites Shira Eliaser (who appears to be a teacher) as the author. Either way, it’s a kickass petition because it manages to make its point without a hint of slut shaming. According to Jezebel, Behn’s goal is not for Party City to get “rid of its current costumes, because a lot of women do like to express themselves that way,” but rather give young women more options. Check out an excerpt from the letter after the jump. Keep reading »
Say you’re an offbeat couple who wants to make sure your engagement photos have a unique twist. You could wear funny hats, or you could document, in graphic detail, getting brutally murdered by Jason from “Friday the 13th.” This Toronto couple went with the latter. Their engagement photos begin innocently enough, with the couple frolicking in various nature settings, but wait, what does that sign say? Camp Crystal Lake? And is that a masked man with a machete grabbing the groom-to-be?! Uh-oh. See the entire set of photos over at Geekologie. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well, although there is a great shot of the engagement ring completely drenched in blood. I just really hope they took some less murder-y photos to send to grandma.
