Halloween is two days away! Here is a list of adorable pet costumes and possible inspiration for all pet owners. But if your pet is anything like my dog, he’ll only wear the costume long enough to take one picture before shaking out of it. Happy Halloween!

If you’re like everybody else on the planet, you’ve been anxiously awaiting Downton Abbey’s season 4, which premieres on PBS’s Masterpiece Theater January 5, 2014. (Or maybe you’ve already downloaded it from someone in the UK and binged watched it, in which case, no spoilers, please!) It’s extraordinarily easy to get wrapped up in all of the drama of this award-winning period piece, and more than once I’ve found myself longing to be a part of the era, and, specifically, the owner of all the lovely clothes the Crawley sisters have worn.

Happy Hallow's Eve's Eve, BUSTies! As another year comes to a close we don our carefully crafted outfits and munch on yummy candy, new controversies erupt over what costumes are socially acceptable or too revealing. And a lot of times, these conversations revolve around what women are entitled to wear. So before you head out tomorrow, take a listen to this awesome slam poetry from Washington D.C’s Brave New Voices Grand Slam Finals 2013. Because despite how we feel about barely-there costumes and the like, we women are all in this together. Read More

I love Halloween. Here are some of my favorite costumes that I have crafted up throughout the years and some tips on how you can get the look!
Sorry the picture above is blurry. I am sure whoever took this was very drunk. I have done several variations of this costume throughout the years. This actually wasn't Halloween but a bachelorette party for my bestie/bandmate. For this costume, cover a large piece of poster board with aluminum foil and tape it into a cylinder. Read More
Oh my dear. Say it isn’t so. The designers over at sexy costume source Yandy are using a terrible misinterpretation of “twerking” to sell outfits. In a section they call “Costumes to Twerk In,” the venders market costumes that expose the buttocks. Of course, the first is an knock-off Miley Cyrus VMA costume called “Furry Party Animal Halloween Costume.” The other costumes have absolutely nothing to do with twerking except that they have cheeky bottoms; the list includes an interpretation of Wonder Woman, a ninja, and a soldier.

Last year, we brought you 10 Awesome Feminist Halloween Costume Ideas, and since it's that time of year again, we thought we'd give you an update that's totally 2013. Check out these ideas below, and please add your own in the comments section!
1. Elizabeth Cady Stanton
This kid has the right idea! Dress up as suffragette Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Bring a friend to dress up as her best bud, Susan B. Anthony.

As Halloween approaches each year, the internet abounds with images of sexy costumes; some websites advertise and others mock, but everyone seems to have an opinion. Both types of costume coverage seem to center around women, and it’s always unpleasant to see internet lists that either objectify (“10 sexiest women at Halloween”) or shame (“10 sluttiest costumes”) us ladies.
For this reason, I was surprised to encounter a list entitled “25 Sexy Halloween Costumes For Men That Should NOT Exist. Read More

With Halloween just around the corner, every store is bursting with the same lame costumes they have every year...Batman, Spiderman, and of course their barely-there female counterparts!
These skin-tight and ultra-revealing looks got me thinking...If you're going to be fighting bad guys (or good guys!) you would need some serious comfort and breathe-ability instead of latex lingerie.
Illustrator Celeste Pille was thinking just the same thing when she used her skills to re-imagine spandex bikinis and leather corsets as actual crime-fighting wear. Read More
I’m going to be honest here: I don’t know a lot about Martha Stewart (really, almost nothing). But from what I’ve seen, I’m a fan. Somehow she makes cleaning my room seem less ominous, as though perhaps my best gal pals, my fiance, and maybe my mom could turn housekeeping into a craft fair. Read More
