OK, so we all know by now that Amanda Bynes isn’t having the best year. Between her DUI drama and her recent dressing room shenanigans in the media, she’s looking more and more like her hot mess celeb-peer Lindsey Lohan. With so much weirdness going on in the star’s life, it’s hard to choose which strange happening to pay tribute to. After a lot of thought, we decided to go with the extra weird pipe smoking, Baja Fresh eating Home Depot shopping escapade she went on in L.A. a few weeks back. We still haven’t figured that one out. There are so many unanswered questions about her activities. And it’ll be a great Halloween party conversation starter if you dress as her! It’s easy, all you need is a few props!

After completing her high-fashion transformation into the heart-shaped face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence decided to mix it up a little by losing the couture and going as a regular person for Halloween. Or she just wore her glasses and let her air dry. Either way, Jennifer stopped by the Netherworld Haunted House in Atlanta yesterday looking less like a spokesmodel and more like a senior during finals week, if that senior happened to be drop-dead gorgeous and the finals happened to be in Escaping A Terrifying Goblin 101, The History of Mutant Pumpkins and Introduction To Weird Bloody Scarves.
Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise were out for dinner at NYC’s Mr. Chow on Saturday night, when they encountered the most awkward of situations, per the New York Post: Three people were seated next to them wearing a “Free Katie” shirt, a “Save Suri” shirt and a Top Gun-era Tom Cruise costume. An onlooker said that Katie didn’t “lose her cool” and the T-shirt wearers covered up their clever slogans before Suri could see.
Let this serve as a warning for all of you clever revelers tomorrow night — and we ourselves are included, as we’ve been fully advocating celebrity costumes since last week — you might want to avoid star-frequented hot spots in L.A. and New York (assuming any are up and running tomorrow), if you plan on spoofing someone famous. Option 2: Embrace the awkwardness, pose for a photo with the celeb in question and SEND IT TO US!
All that backlash Clueless star Stacey Dash received earlier this month for tweeting her support of Mitt Romney seems only to have fired her up.
“Fighting the good fight. Godspeed. @reppaulryan @MittRomney #Romney/Ryan20,” she wrote yesterday, posting the above awkward photo of herself and Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The unintended consequence of this photo, and its late October timing, may be that the unlikely duo becomes a brand new Halloween costume meme. We’ve seen so many Paul Ryans out there already, a Stacey Dash impersonator would get points for extra currency. (For added impact, we recommend those in warmer climates don the red Baywatch-esque swimsuit she wore in her first controversial twitpic.) Read more…
Celebrities spent this past weekend dressing up and showing off their Halloween spirit. With Halloween mere days away there’s still time to perfect your costumes or try a new one out for the day, so we’ve gathered 30 celebrity Halloween costumes from the weekend that might inspire you.
If you want to get back at your ex, use Deryck Whibley as inspiration who dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new man Chad Kroeger with a friend. If you’re not in a malicious mood and are looking for something cute, check out Darren Criss‘ adorable Moonrise Kingdom costume. Or, are you looking for some good couples’ costume ideas for you and your significant other? Take a look at Kim Kardashian and Kayne West and JWoww and Roger Mathews for inspiration.
For these and other ideas, browse through our celebrity Halloween 2012 gallery below!
Last year Kim Kardashian made Halloween extra spooky for her 72-day-old husband Kris Humphries by filing for divorce. This year she scaled it back a bit and just roped boyfriend Kanye West into accompanying her to the second annual Midori Green Halloween costume gala at New York’s Avenue club. Kim tore it up as a super sexy mermaid, complete with shell bra, sea-foam fin-dress, and whosits and whatsits galore! Considering she’s lacking Ariel’s trademark red tresses, we’re going to say she’s Daryl Hannah’s sea-dwelling character from 1984′s Splash. Or maybe just a hot mermaid. The jury’s still out.
Although it’s (arguably) not as bad as a divorce, Kim made Kanye’s holiday a pretty scary by seemingly making him attend dressed in a sailor suit. Yes, the kind of thing a mom would dress her five year old in for a family portrait. ”Me and my captain!” she captioned a twitpic, featuring herself and a bashful looking Yeezy. Photos at the event show Kanye off to the side taking pictures of Kim with his iPhone while she strutted the red carpet. Aww, we feel for you dude; couple’s costumes can be the worst. But hey, at least Kim looked pretty sweet! See how it stacks up to her past Halloween outfits in the gallery below!
It’s the Sunday before Halloween, and while you might have already attended some of the parties this past weekend, actual Halloween falls upon a very inconvenient Wednesday this year, and I have the perfect costume for you. Think about it. What’s everyone going to be talking about next week? If you work with the right people (and I know you do) they’re all going to be talking about tonight’s Homeland.
That’s right. The one show whose antics always carry straight through the week — from water coolers to message boards — now that’s the costume you win in-office Halloween costume contest prizes with. And it’s a super easy one to put together.
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…
It’s Halloween season, the time of year when we watch all of those super scary movies that guarantee we sleep with the light on until Thanksgiving. But not all horror flicks have blood and guts. Some of them are right there in the kid’s section next to the Yo Gabba Gabba DVDs! Yes, the most terrifying things we have ever seen have come directly from movies we saw as little kids. No matter how many decades go by, we will never be ready for these G-rated terrors!
We’re older now and more mature, and finally able to come out from under our blankeys and stand up for ourselves. So now we’d like to say what we’ve been meaning to say to the makers of these films for years: What the f–, you guys!? We were kids for god’s sake, and we trusted you to make light and entertaining movies for us. What the hell we you doing tricking us into watching this stuff!? Jerks. We’ve already done the 7 Most Traumatic Pixar Movie Moments list, so now join us as we count down the 12 scariest kid’s movie scenes of all time. Come on, do it. It’s all part of the healing process.
12. Willy Wonka Takes A (Boat) Trip
Jeez, did Wonka lace the candy with LSD? What the hell was in that mushroom? All we know is that the slug moving across the person’s face is probably the only thing in this movie more unsettling than Oompa Loompas.
Am I the only one still obsessed with Tan Mom? I don’t mind! Notorious tanning mom Patricia Krentcil left a smudge on my heart the size and color of an orange earlier this year, and I can’t soon forget her. So I made her into a Halloween costume. Enjoy!
