First there was Marilyn, and then there was Jayne. Busty, (bottle) blonde, and ribald, Mansfield became known as the “Working Man’s Monroe” for both her physical likeness to Norma Jeane and her own brand of salacious, exaggeratedly sexual appeal. “Hollywood’s smartest dumb blonde” had a genius IQ and was fluent in five languages, but she knew full well that the public didn’t care about her brains; rather, they were far more interested in her 40-21-35 dimensions.
A pledged member ― the High Priestess, in fact ― of Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan, it was rumored that Jayne sold her soul for fame and fortune and suffered the consequences: a grisly car accident death that saw the stunning young actress and American sex symbol nearly decapitated, while her three children under the age of 5, including her now-famous daughter, Mariska Hargitay, looked on from the backseat.

Anyway, the point is that just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we can’t still cook up some spooky Halloween-themed food. I found recipes for everything from puff pastry intestines to shrunken head cider (and check out the Dexter blood slide candies up on the top right! So cool). Click through to check ‘em out…
There are some who think there is no value in reality TV, but I dare those haters to say as much come Halloween, when these stars of the small screen are the first people we think of as costume inspirations. While you could certain recycle last year’s Courtney Stodden or “Toddlers & Tiaras” costumes, why not consider dressing up as one of unlikely reality TV heroines who entertained the hell out of us in 2012?
Cats are such stubborn creatures. Case in point: These difficult jerks who refuse to even wear fur on Halloween. While their dog counterparts are yukking it up in bumblebee costumes and ridiculous hats, these cats are letting it all hang out — naked as jay birds, with their silly little lion cuts.
Sigh. So difficult.
The best stingray photobomb ever may prove to be the best group Halloween costume idea ever. You’ll have to draw straws over who gets to be the stingray. [WOW]

This James Holmes Halloween mask was listed on eBay for $500 by someone who claimed it’s a one-of-a-kind mask that was made for a movie. It’s no longer available, which can only mean one thing: Prince Harry has found a costume this year. [BuzzFeed]
