Halloween means candy corn, haunted houses, and your dad wearing that musty vampire outfit yet again. But it also means Halloween specials on TV! Throughout the years, the small screen has captured the fun of dressing up for the holidays. It’s a time for our favorite characters to get creative and just a tad inappropriate as they sport costumes from the topical, the slutty, or other clever ideas that perfectly reflect their own personalities. Here’s a list of some of our favorite Halloween costumes from TV over the years that may give you some inspiration of what to do…and what not to do.
Best Mystery Costume – The Slutty Pumpkin (How I Met Your Mother): It was that crisp, autumnal night on Halloween when Ted Mosby thought he met the love of his life…in a costume that has become the show’s famed “Slutty Pumpkin.” Though her face was veiled, this mystery woman became the object of Ted’s harvest-filled fantasies. Many years later, we discovered that the woman was none other than Katie Holmes! Even though the costume doesn’t have much originality, we give them props for mocking the “slutty fill-in-the-blank” outfit. Read more…
Congrats to all the ladies (and gents) out there who go week in the knees for a British accent and/or a set of scrubs. Your persistent voting paid off, and Julian Morris, a.k.a. Wren on Pretty Little Liars, beat out his three co-stars who get way more screen time than he does. Julian got a whopping 45 percent of the votes, crushing second-place Keegan Allen, third Tyler Blackburn and fourth Ian Harding. Now if only you could convince Spencer that her sister’s ex is a much healthier choice than Team A member Toby, we’d be all set. (Sorry, Spoby fans, Keegan’s abs don’t make up for murder and blackmail!)
We will reward Wren lovers with two more steamy videos below. The rest of you can still enjoy our full gallery of all four PLL hotties.
Halloween is almost here, and it’s definitely not just for kids anymore! These days it’s less about the mini candy bars and more about the seriously hot mini outfits. October 31st has become the unofficial the last gasp of bikini season, the final strip-off before winter sets in and everyone turns into Slanket mummies for 6 months. But for now, the goal is to be the most creative with the least amount of clothing. And no one does that better than Hollywood A-listers! These stars have brought us some truly awesome costumes over the years. Who could forget Kim Kardashian as Jasmine, Mariah Carey as a scantily clad bride(?) and Snooki as…the Queen of the Pickles? We think? Okay, we’ll be honest: we don’t know what a lot of these outfits are supposed to be. But that’s the magic of Halloween: We don’t have to! It’s the one night of the year where it’s not skanky, it’s a costume! Tons of stars and starlets have stripped down to celebrate over the years, so we’ve assembled the 75(!) most scarily sexy costumes of all time. Just think of it as a big basket of fun-sized Snickers on a doorstep and a sign that says “Help Yourself.” Dive in!
Mr. and Mrs. Draper in Hawaii? The possibilities are endless! Imagine if Mad Men — just for a moment — shed its serious vibe and did a Gidget/Elvis/Brady Bunch-style romp. Well, probably not. Imagine if Jon Hamm had similar difficulty hiding his, er, gifts, as he had on the streets of New York and Boston. Er, no such luck. OK, how about Jessica Pare showing off her flawless skin and body in a super cute floral bikini while Jon gives us a good look at his chest in all its unwaxed glory? Success! Actually, these pics, from the first shoot of the show’s season six premiere, are rather promising. Don and Megan look like they’re trying to smooth out the difficulties their career-related fights caused at the end of last season, but we bet there will still be a considerable amount of tension between them too. Come up with your own theories on what will go down in the Aloha State when you look at these pics:
Did you just realize that even though Halloween isn’t until next week, all your parties are this weekend and you STILL don’t have a costume? VH1 Celebrity is here to save you. Our very creative staff has spent the past week putting off their much more important duties to come up with some clever (and timely!) costumes that you too can pull together with little time and a shoestring budget. We won’t even charge you royalties. First up: One of our favorite memes of election season: Clint Eastwood and his chair, a.k.a. Invisible Obama, from the Republican National Convention. If you’re lucky, this one can cost you less than $10.
1. Find a wooden chair. My husband, Allen (who came up with this whole concept), and I found this one on trash day in Brooklyn. He removed the seat with a very satisfying kick. If no one’s discarding furniture on your block this week, we’re sure you can find something similar at a Goodwill.
Just in time for the Pretty Little Liars Halloween special — where we hear one male resident of Rosewood is going to die! — we’ve brought the Weekly Hotness poll back from beyond the grave. And we’re pretty sure this election has more undecided voters than that other one set to go down in two weeks. Are you hot for teacher Ezra, a.k.a. Ian Harding, and his sensitive literary style. Or does Caleb’s (Tyler Blackburn) lethal combination of bad-boy rep, computer smarts and sculpted cheekbones get you where it counts? Did the “BetrAyal” devastate you and your Toby-loving (Keegan Allen) heart? Or are you rooting for Dr. Wren (Julian Morris) to step in and steal back Spencer or Hanna? (Regardless of where your loyalties lie, you have to admit it’s weird that Wren is still single.) We’ll be back tomorrow with more ways help you make your decision — along with plenty of OMGs over tonight’s ep — but in the meantime, enjoy this extensive gallery of the four rather Pretty boys. And vote! Poll closes Friday at 8 a.m.
Well, let’s just come out and say it: that is just too much pant! Kourtney Kardashian stepped out in Miami today wearing a mathematically-impossible amount of pants while shooting scenes for Kourtney And Kim Take Miami. You could make six pairs of Kourtney-sized pants out of those, easy. It’s not even that we’re saying they are ugly pants. They are just a ridiculous volume of pants. You know those infinity swimming pools? That look like they don’t have an edge because water pours over the side? These is exactly like that, except with pants. Infinity pants. What we’re trying to say is, the limit is zero. The limit of Kourtney Kardashian’s pants does not exist!
Those broken hearts belong to me and the former members of ‘N Sync.
The evidence is in. According to every blog on the planet, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel (or JessiLake, as I will call them through my tears) are married. There’s an EXCLUSIVE photo spread coming to Ye Olde People magazine this week, but plenty of paparazzi got to eat take out ravioli while they sat around waiting to catch glimpses of the bridge and groom in southern Italy.
“It was magical,” said Timberlake, to People. “It was a fantasy,” Biel added.
“I imagine it was an OK wedding,” said this blogger, to no people in particular.
Now that Klaine are splitsville on Glee (temporarily, we hope!) we’re looking forward to seeing what kind of transformations Kurt and Blaine go through while coping with their emotional distress. And hoping that means at some point Darren Criss will bring back the gel-less “Broccoli Head” look he sported at prom. We were reminded of what a nice change it is to see guys sport their natural curls on Saturday night, when Bruno Mars ditched his usual pompadour for a bushier ‘do as the host and musical guest on SNL. Maybe that was partly due to the fact that it made no sense to sculpt his hair ever so carefully just minutes before stuffing it into a wig. But we’d also like to think this is part of a new trend. Free your locks from their stiff product prison, gentlemen! Ring in the new era of curl!
We were going to credit Darren with this trend at first, but then we spotted a few Tumblrs dedicated to the adorable Mr. Mars (who made a pretty decent comedian this weekend, if you ask us). Turns out, the very week that Blaine was forced to go natural at prom, Bruno also sported curls at the Met Costume Gala. Spooky! (Not really.) Read more…
