Gallery: The 10 Worst Lady Gaga Halloween Costumes

Walking through the train station this morning, I overheard a woman say, “It’s time to start thinking about Christmas.” I wanted to grab her by the shoulder and shake her, screaming that it’s only the beginning of October. Christmas is almost three months away and it’s definitely not time to start thinking about it!

It is, however, high time we all start considering Halloween. The line between a good Lady Gaga costume and a bad Lady Gaga costume is thin — sometimes the outfit can be more hilarious and over-the-top for its utter shoddiness. But only sometimes. Here are the 10 worst-but-kinda-best Lady Gaga costumes floating around the Internet. More »

Make Your Own: Slutty Baghead Costume

Make Your Own: Slutty Baghead Costume

You may remember last week’s post titled “American Apparel Wants to Destroy Halloween” about the shop’s gallery of incredibly lazy costumes. Not convinced that the extreme half-assedness of their dress-up options was sufficiently addressed, the fine folks over at Am Ap took it upon themselves to send an “emergency costume” in a bag over to our offices. Looking over the t-shirt, dress and sparkly leggings combo, we would have gone with “abstract costume” instead, but who are we to question the logic of Dov Charney. Inspired more by the bag than anything else, we created what is sure to be a staple of Halloween costumes for years to come: Slutty Baghead. Follow our (admittedly also half-assed) instructions and make one of your own. More »

American Apparel Wants To Destroy Halloween

What’s that, young hipster? You don’t have a Halloween costume yet? Fear not, for American Apparel is here to help you out with dress-up options pulled from their own clothing line — how generous! For example, did you know that putting your hair in a scrunchee means you’re dressed as a “slumber party”? And a white sweater coupled with white tights makes you the moon! (The moon is rolling over in its, um, orbit of the earth.) More »

The Daily WTF: Angry Steward Costume

We received a press release about this exclusive! angry-steward-who-flipped-the-bird-on-a-Jet-Blue-flight costume made by a place called Ricky’s NYC. It comes with a shirt, a tie, and a Bandaid — and it’s only $39.99. Boy, that sounds like the deal of a lifetime for something that also doubles as a just-a-regular-steward costume. More »

Comic-Con: Better Fashion Than the Runways?

Comic-Con: Better Fashion Than the Runways?

We’ve poked fun at San Diego’s Comic-Con before, but this weekend at its New York equivalent, held at the Javits Center on the West Side Highway, we were struck by an epiphany. Sure, there were the usual dorks, geeks, and fanboys lining up to meet Bruce Campbell or see a panel on My Super Psycho 16 Part 2, but there were also a ton of hot ladies, dressed up like a Manga fetishist’s wet dream.

We’ve been to Fashion Week here in NYC, where girls that look like wire hangers show off clothes that women of regular proportions could never hope to fit into. Here at Comic-Con, the outfits may have been more superhero than runway, but were no less appealing or sexy…and were made for every sized woman in mind. Eat your heart out boys, Halloween has come early this year, and these ladies are ready to kick your ass. More »
