Welcome to Better Than It Looks, a series in which we discuss the recipes we tried (and maybe failed) to execute, and the foods that were served to us by someone perhaps more talented than ourselves.
Is it, like...a ghost? A creative take on a drop cloth? A Grimace™? What the hell is Jackie Kennedy wearing?
As you spend today nursing your candy hangovers and packing away your plastic spiders and fake cobwebs, take a moment to gander at the interesting costumes our celebrity friends wore during this weekend’s Halloween celebrations.
Every Halloween a handful of people make incredibly dumb costume decisions; from dressing in blackface to appropriating other cultures, stupid puns and more. Yesterday, Nicki Minaj called out one particularly misguided costume: a dude who thought that dressing like Bill Cosby and a passed out rape victim, complete…
Happy Halloween everyone! Whether you’ll be off to run amok in the streets during this spooky night or at home watching scary movies and drinking pumpkin beer, enjoy this frightening story from Uproxx of one man and his quest to eat 12 pounds of Halloween candy, from Jezebel’s very own Mark Shrayber.
Families who attended a parade in Hattiesburg, Mississippi were outraged when they discovered candy in the shape of dicks had been thrown during the event.
I’m sorry. Did you really think we would limit ourselves to only ten of your scariest stories this Halloween?
Halloween isn’t complete with out a few tricks, like a 25-foot tall, 350 pound inflatable pumpkin, on the wings of the wind, barreling into your person.
When you get an invite to the Halloween party at the White House, you bring your A game. And that’s exactly what this adorable kid who came dressed as the Pope did. His costume was replete with a Popemobile and tiny Vatican flags. Needless to say, POTUS and FLOTUS were in love with Baby Pope. Pope Francis may be the…
We asked and you delivered. With over 3,000 comments on this year’s Scary Story contest, this year’s submitters brought their best—sharing hair-raising, spine-tingling tales that were so scary that certain Jezebel writers were forced to sleep with their lights on. These are the ten most terrifying.
Halloween is enjoyable in moderation, but, as is the case with many vices, it is difficult to enjoy without overindulging. Every year, I set out to have a good spooky time, and before I know it, I’m huddled under a blanket with all the lights on because I thought it might be fun to cook dinner while the creepiness…
A Halloween movie decision can make or break a date or a party—even if that party is just you, a pizza you cooked in a bowl because it’s easier than putting it in an oven, and a bottle of that Moscato they only sell at Olive Garden.
Now that Halloween is upon us, a bunch of weird, so-called “Halloween” items are on sale. Let’s make fun of them and then secretly buy them anyway.
On Thursday night, Harrison Ford popped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! For some reason, he was dressed as both a giant hot dog and a “hot dog,” including nose. He divulged basically zero details about the new Star Wars movie, but with a charming irascibly that bodes very well for the characterization of middle-aged Han Solo.…
There are two types of adults in this world—those who still dress up for Halloween and those who do not. Which one are you?
It’s the last business day before Halloween, which means it’s the day all your coworkers pressure you into showing off your fun personality through your team costume as all the spices in a spice rack.
One of the first people you encounter upon entering The Basement is a girl in dirty pajamas with bloody bandages over her eyes. She paws at you, begs you to tell her a story, and demands comfort. Try to hug her and she will scream violently. She is allowed to touch you, but you are not allowed to touch her.
Welcome to Would U?, an academic forum in which I share my gross crush of the week and ask if you, too, would bang that person.
Survive enough November 1 hangovers and you’ll be forced to face the fact that Halloween is best experienced as a dorky, candy-heavy good time with a heavy dose of creepiness and an undercurrent of decay. One group doing it right: Museums and libraries, who are taking this holiday as an opportunity to post all their…
