It’s getting hard for people to come up with original, offensive Halloween costumes. Blackface? Too common. Making fun of the activists demonstrating against the pipeline in North Dakota? Current and topical, sure, but still racist in a rather predictable way. For a bold take on Halloween dickery, please look at our…
It’s been a heavy news night, hasn’t it, poppets? And on Halloween, to boot! So I think it’s only fair that we wrap up the evening with something pleasant: President Barack Obama flexing with a tiny Superman.
The best thing about Halloween is that—unless you’re into cons, cosplay, and the like—it’s the one day of the year that you’re encouraged (expected, even) to walk around dressed in your freakiest, funniest, weirdest, sluttiest garb and no one can say BOO about it. So let’s show off our 2016 costumes!

These people live for costumes. Halloween may very…

Just in time for Halloween, Charli XCX redeems the bad rep that zombies have sustained in our culture and portrays them in an entirely different, refreshing light: as cotton candy pink-loving party animals, so devoted to having a good time in perpetuity they’re forever sustaining the after-after-after-party.
Hillary Duff (Flock of Dudes, Raising Hope) and her celebrity trainer-boyfriend Jason Walsh fucked up with their Halloween costumes, dressing as a gourd-wielding pilgrim and a stereotypical Native American in a feathered headdress, respectively. They were both stoned to death on Twitter in short order:
Do you ever just love something so much you wish you could stuff the entire thing in your mouth? That’s how this dog feels about seeing her favorite toy in LIFE SIZE. And, incidentally, how I feel about this video.
Still haven’t got your Halloween costume squared away? Well, perhaps some time in the archives will offer a solution. For instance, you could be a cranky cat, like this girl watching a Halloween parade in Anaheim, California, in 1962.
