Can you feel that spookiness in the air? Do you have "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah" on repeat right now? Are you potentially drinking something pumpkin flavored?! That's because it's almost Halloween, nerds!
We just dished a bunch of feminist costume ideas last week, but my new favorite website (because costume parties are year-round, right?) "Take Back Halloween" will bring your costume game to a whole new level. Each idea features a badass/historical/legendary dame and ... Read More

Halloween is approaching, which means it is socially acceptable to sport the most outrageous nails ever! If your nail art skills are anything like mine (nonexistent), you might want to get a head start. Here are 13 spooktacular (GET IT?!) ideas to get you in the nail art spirit.
1. Candy Corn Glitter Bomb Polish: Perfect for a simple, easy nail. Apply black nail polish, and once it's dry, coat it with this crazy awesome ... 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 ... Read More
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.
2. Shirley Chisholm
Get out your best 1960s ... Read More
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 ... Read More

If you’ve been on the internet at all in the past week, you’ve no doubt seen the uproar over Wal-Mart’s “naughty leopard” costume for toddlers. I decided to refrain from clicking on these links, deciding to keep the last shred of faith in humanity that I had. But today, curiosity got the best of me. When my eyes were met with a cute kid in a purple tutu, all I could think was “This is what everyone is so peeved ... 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 ... 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. I mean, why suffer with maintaining a place to live when you could just as easily turn it into a magical wonderland?
But ... Read More

With its drizzly rain, cold weather, and short, dark days, sometimes it seems like November is the cruelest month, or at least the most hated. But although summer days are now long past, there are plenty of reasons to love November! Here are ten of them:
1. You can get leftover Halloween candy for cheap.
Halloween is now over, and you know what that means…cheap candy! Like the day after Valentine’s Day and the day after Christmas, now ... Read More
