I’ve been trying to figure out Christina’s costume all week. The crown and the knight suggest the Queen of…Something? The trailer park? And I CANNOT BELIEVE Kim Kardashian’s ratty wig cost $2,000. I just can’t.
Yes, I too checked out the comments hoping for some clarification wrt Christina’s costume. It looks vaguely Rocky Horror, but it’s not. Hmmm.
How did Christina Milan (slide 9) get to that costume before Ashanti did? Someone’s getting fired right now for that misstep.
Oh my gosh, Heather! I am loathe to say this since the thought had never ever crossed my mind before today, but I am disappointed in you! Darren Criss is OBVIOUSLY the little boy from Moonrise Kingdom: http://bit.ly/XSStSy
It’s the go to hipster costume this year. I saw like eight of them at the very hip Hallowe’en party I went to this weekend.
I came into this post just to say this!! Moonrise Kingdom!!!!!!!
ROFL, I just watched MK this weekend, so I recognized the costume immediately. Go, Darren Criss. Whoever you are…
How can you be disappointed in me if I haven’t seen the movie yet? I have twins. I don’t get to the movies because babysitters are too expensive.
and I can’t believe i’m about to say this, but i’m even willing to cut the hipsters some slack for once, for that movie was beyond excellent. Heather, get with the Wesprogram stat!
Shenae Grimes for the win! Well done.
And, once again, Paris Hilton, please go away. It’s so much preferable when I’ve forgotten you and your trashy garters exist.
You missed out on the costumes of the Pretty Little Liars’ cast. They were brilliant, especially Troain as Lisbeth Slander and Benson as Tweedle Dee.
So, Paris H. also walks leaning that far back? It isn’t just a standing pose!
Cristina A. doesn’t really look all that different than some of her outfits at various award shows and whatnot.
Shanae G. is the only one with an inventive costume.
I know, how does Paris throw her shoulders back that far without dislocating them? And also, why?
Darren Criss is clearly dressed as the adorable kid from Moonrise Kingdom — Sam Shakusky.
He needs a Suzy to make clear the difference between random boy scout and cute shout out to really good movie.
His girlfriend did go as Suzy, I saw a few photos of them together. She looked cute.
He had one – his girlfriend went as her. They just never pose together for paparazzi.
Sorry — haven’t seen the movie yet.
YES. THANK YOU. You would think the people who caption photos for the entertainment world would watch movies!
You need to understand that there is a huge difference between being able to ID celebs and talk about their outfits and recognizing every costume from every movie ever. Magazines like People and US have entire staffs devoted to movie coverage. There are two of us running this entire site. This is not like we don’t know who Julia Roberts is.
Please, chill with the Moonrise Kingdom stuff, guys. We didn’t see it. There are way worse things in the world. It’s just a mistake, and one you have all corrected multiple times.
I’ve NEVER even seen a trailer for Moonrise Kingdom and i watch a lot of TV and read a lot of mags. Is this a kid movie? Also, I have kids and see a lot of trailers when watching Disney & Disney XD with them. Guess I’m clueless also
Ariel is making me nervous. She’s a beautiful girl, but her fashion choices seem to indicate that she is trying to separate herself from nerdy Alex Dunphy. She hasn’t worn anything vulgar, but I’m kind of uncomfortable about a 14 year old wearing a costume that revealing. Ariel, please do us all a favor- don’t feel pressured to appear on Maxim the second you turn 18. You’re a lovely young woman, and you don’t need the attention of the male gaze to prove it.
This. I am concerned for her. I didn’t mind her cleavage dress so much, but this costume is….too much for a 14 year old. I’m not really all that prudish, but I am stepparent to a teenaged girl, and their clothes just hurt me inside. Ariel here is a lovely, lovely girl who I think will grow up to be even more stunning. She will never need to try too hard, but this costume is exactly that — trying too hard. “Sexy” isn’t usually all that sexy, Ariel. It’s just nakedness.
Yup, agreed on Ariel Winter. Plus, the heels are scary on her.
I’m just adding my support to this little campaign. The pants didn’t bother me that much – the bra top, bared midriff, 6 inch heels and full face of makeup did. She’s competing with women, some of whom she shouldn’t be emulating. The overall look made my heart sink. Her parents shouldn’t have okayed this. Go home honey, put some pyjamas on and have a slumber party or something.
You will absolutely love it when you see it- Deryck Whibley (Avril Lavigne’s ex husband) and his girlfriend went as Avril and Chad Kroeger. The Chad’s answer is actually kind of made of win too: http://www.vancouversun.com/Deryck+Whibley+dresses+Avril+Lavigne+girlfriend+Chad+Kroeger+Halloween/7464576/story.html
Darren Criss is Sam Shakusky from Moonrise Kingdom! Which explains the rifle. And the raccoon patch. Sort of. I love it.
Darren Criss is dressed like the boy from Moonrise Kingdom. Great costume idea.
Not a great costume idea: a racially insensitive Native American get-up. Ugh.
Yes, I second the stereotyping racial insensitive comment. If someone had shown up in black face, the internet would be awash with charges of racism, but somehow, it’s still OK to dress up as First Nations? Give me a break. Not cool.
SO offensive. I can’t believe that people think “Indian” is a costume. It is NOT A COSTUME.
Sorry to nitpick, but as a fan who reads GFY from India, I think Native American might be a better term? Either way, it is not a costume, I agree.
THANK YOU, I was afraid I’d be the only one gnashing my teeth in comments. There’s plenty racial insensitivity in Ariel Winters’ costume, too, but in this particular case I’m blaming Disney.
Is that the edge of a nipple I see in that pic where Kim K is checking out her boobs? Gross.
Yep. I almost yelled “NO! AREOLA!” out loud before I remembered I was at work.
Just an FYI Darren Criss is supposed to be Sam from “Moonrise Kingdom”. I figured he should get proper credit since most of those should not count as costumes.
This is going to sound very self-righteous but I’ve decided I don’t care. I am genuinely sad for the tragic women who think Halloween means they should show their t*ts to the world. “My t*ts are out. Are people looking? Should I arch more? Is everybody looking at my t*ts?”
One of the many reasons I hate Halloween.
I agree, Lynne. It’s just sad to see so many young girls who think that Halloween means they should give the world a peek at their wares. It’s cheap.
Overall, POOR SHOWING, celebs. Boooo. Can’t wait to see what The Klum busts out this year – THAT woman knows what Halloween is all about.
Keibler’s hands are strangely white. Perhaps she’s actually costumed as a mime?
About Aubrey O’Day—no, no points for effort. For Pete’s sake it’s 2012. How do white people fail to know that they should not dress up as Indians? Or more accurately “Indians”. Same goes for whoever that is with Paris Hilton. Good grief.
i came here to say the same thing! Racial insensitivity is not cool.
Seriously, Aubrey O’Day – NO POINTS FOR YOU EVER, you big damn racist.
Yeah, good point. I was so caught up on if being an actual costume that I wasn’t paying attention.
That is all.
Amen to that!
I don’t think people in racist costumes should be rewarded with attention.
So sad that you didn’t catch Sarah Hyland as Spinelli from Recess. Shanae’s Frankie Stein costume is cute if you don’t know the character at all. If you do though,…….ick. Points to Emma Roberts for going as her aunt but Aubrey o day gets none for cultural appropriation.
Darren Criss = Sam from Moonrise Kingdom
So, I guess Moonrise Kingdom is a must see?
Kim K needs to go away already…. that wig is shiteous.
And why is Paris Hilton even relevant anymore? Not that she ever was really….
My mom made me a Sacagawea costume when I was three and it was awesome. There is a difference between racist and gonzo historical. I prefer to think my mom was going for the latter…O’Day was likely just going for…oh hell, I don’t know, but at least she didn’t go the Prince Harry route, eh?
I agree, if you’re going to commit and do it right, I don’t see anything wrong with it.
google cultural appropriation and please educate yourself because it’s racist, straight up.
I don’t know that Susan’s costume was particularly racist. I’m white, and I LOVED Sacagawea as a kid. (I still think she’s pretty great.) My grandmother made me a costume, and I dressed up as her for years as a tribute. I thought she was awesome. If a little kid’s admiration for a historical figure is cultural appropriation, then I guess I have some learning to do.
Fine. Doing it right would mean understanding something about the meaning of what you’re wearing. If a person can tell you which tribe’s headdress they’re wearing, and what that headdress denotes (a shaman? A chieftain? A healer? Not saying there are headdresses for everything, that was just a costume-typical example), then fine. That is a costume. You can no more dress up as “an Indian” than you can as “a white person.” A Sioux warrior? Done accurately and specifically? Still iffy, IMO, for most people, but at least it doesn’t imply that an entire ethnicity (or set of ethnicities) can be reduced to some feathers and fringe. A really nice headdress doesn’t make this more okay than a scrappy one would be.
Ahh Ariel Winter makes me sad!! She has an 18 year old boyfriend, which kind of explains her outfit..
If she turns out to be another Lohan i’ll be so upset
For those of you not in LA: Dennis Woodruff is the male equivalent to Angelyne. He’s been trying to make himself a star for ages. He has at least one car that is totally decked out in his paraphernalia, and he tries to hand his self-produced “movie” out to anyone he comes across. He used to hang out at Gower Gulch, which is the strip mall next to Sunset Gower Studios, but I’m not sure if he’s still doing that – oh, and Angelyne DOES still buy billboards, just not as much (or as obviously) as she once did. Her car is equally as noticeable – hot pink Corvette with her name on the license plate. I think Fergie and Josh get major points – it’s a creative costume for a couple, even if it’s going to be lost on anyone outside of Hollywood.
I live in Los Angeles and I have never seen that dude. Angelyne of course is a legend.
I’ve only ever seen his car. I don’t think I ever paid attention to it until someone told me what it was – now, I see it more than I see Angelyne.
What’s the deal with dressing up a a slapper at Halloween? Is it an American thing? Nearly fell off my seat when I saw Paris Hilton and the other one walking around in their knickers. They should both have worn long witch robes and cloaks in the interest of public taste!
Can you explain the term “slapper”? I’m curious. And I sort of love it.
Wow, this is a whole lotta fug. I mean, I’m not saying I expect celebrities to go out and spend thousands of dollars on a Halloween costume, but a lot of these look like there was no effort involved at all. Darren Criss looks pretty adorable, though. And Shenae Grimes looks great too– but they’re about it from these photos.
I’m disappointed that you ladies didn’t place that Darren Criss was dressed as the kid from Moonrise Kingdom. My respect for your Hollywood cred just dropped (the fact that you called the Fergie/Josh costume boring doesn’t help – but, I know you didn’t get who Woodruff is, which is key to getting the joke).
Dude, we just didn’t see the movie. Heather has 3 year old twins. We both work like 6 days a week. We can’t see everything.
Also, since when did we ever try to establish Hollywood cred? Just because I live in LA doesn’t mean that is my end game.
The saddest part of Ariel’s costume is the shoes. The fact that she’s not in flats or sandals just makes the point of the whole thing way more obvious and gross and sad. And 14 is too young to be half naked at Halloween. IT IS. I think even other 14 year olds would tell you that.
But I guess my opinion doesn’t count today, cause I haven’t seen Moonrise Kingdom either. Yikes. (All the props to Darren for an actual costume, of course.)
I want to (re)state for the record that People Mag claims that K.Kardash’s wig cost $2,000. I did not mistype that number. Can’t buy class!
That wig is just so awful. I can’t believe that’s what $2,000 gets you.
Scott as Patrick Bateman is actually too perfect for words.
So glad y’all share my opinion that putting on costume items does not a costume make! I HATE people who just throw on a funny hat or wig and say they’re wearing a costume. I’ll buy you’re wearing a Mardi Gras costume, but not a Halloween costume.
Or worse, when they put on their lingerie and a wig and call it a costume…
bateman scott is giving me life. i love him.
aubrey o’day is racist and disgusting.
Richard Simmons for the win!
Obviously Kid Rock doesn’t drink Coors. He drinks Badass beers. Because they’re Kid Rock’s beers! (a lady at the grocery store once stopped to tell us that it was Kid Rock’s beer. Now it’s a joke to my friends)
That brewery went out of business. He used to do ads for coors.
I went to a party this weekend as Suzy…DARREN, THIS MUST MEAN WE ARE SOULMATES.
In thumbnail I though the Kardashian was Donatella Versace.
I have never heard of Moonrise Kingdom, and I don’t have kids. GFY- I’ve got your back!
For sheer depressing idiocy, these are pretty much on a par with the Coachella pics.
Has Paris Hilton ever dressed for Halloween as something other than a variation of a hooker?
Yes, I am clearly in the minority here, but I give Ariel a pass. She is more covered up than she’d be in a bikini. There are some atrocious harem girl/Jeannie in (or out of I guess) a bottle outfits out there, and I don’t think that this is one of them. Her chest is mostly covered, and in fact there is no crack in these pictures. I have no idea what this was like when she was walking around, but this fairly modest compared to what it could have been
I really am not getting these comments about Ariel Winter’s costume? She’s dressed as a genie, genies show their stomachs. Her boobs are pretty much covered and her trousers aren’t transparent like a LOT of harem-girl costumes seem to be, she is actually just showing her stomach and back. When I was 14 and crop tops and lo-rise jeans were a massive thing I showed as much flesh on a pretty much regular basis and nobody cared. When she starts dressing like Taylor Momsen maybe I’ll care a little.
Darren Criss is dress as the boy from Moonrise Kingdom [awesome 2011 movie].
Remember how Paris Hilton was going to change her ways after she got out of prison, and become a valuable member of society? When is that happening?
You’re right – Ariel’s costume makes me cringe. Christina’s.. maybe the scary part is those little peices of fabric over her boobs screaming in terror as they are slowly, inevitably ripped apart by the forces of boobravity?
Paris is proof of what our mothers told us when we were little. “If you keep standing like that, you’re gonna freeze in that position!”
Geezzz why is everyone giving them so much crap about not seeing a movie yet? I’ve never even heard of the movie you’re all talking about!
Anyways Heather and Jessica, you may want to fug the crap out of Lucy Hale’s train wreck of a costume as well! Haha
Kim Kardashian: ha ha ha ha! She’ s kidding, right?
Oh, and I for one have no problem with Ariel’s costume. I see it as cute, not sexy. I’ve seen kids in school-sponsored dance recitals wearing much worse. And I am more than 2 decades older than she is, sadly.
I think most people aren’t really being serious when they say they’re disappointed in the Fug girls though for not seeing the movies. It’s prob in snarky fun. I think their defensive comments and orders for people to chill make me a little disappointed.
I’m sorry you are disappointed and I apologize for being defensive, which I am sure I was. We have been inundated with corrections about this — not only here, but also in email, and many of those were very rude — and it has been a SUPREMELY difficult week. I also personally could have chilled, I am sure.
I need some candy.
Jessica, you deserve candy. You run a lovely site. Don’t let us pests annoy you :^).
I am sad to see so many celebrities wearing caricatures of other cultures as costumes. Not surprised, but definitely disappointed. The link below has some info about why it’s not okay to do so, and I hope you guys will spread the word! (Given how awesome you are on the internet, Heather and Jess.)
Isn’t Kim Kardashian an experimental cinema piece like Joaquin Phoenix in “I’m Still Here”? Her film would of course be called “They’re Still Here”.
This video really says it all about the “slutty _____” costume trend. Ugh.
