Not sure this horse is totally on board with being dragged into the Wonder Woman theme. He's like, I don't need no stinkin' lasso of truth to tell you how I feel.

I think what makes some people uncomfortable about Halloween is the acting that's sometimes involved with the costume. And these folks exhibit why it's so essential, but difficult to get it right. The matador is flamenco dancing, the bull is delicately bowing. It's wrong, wrong, wrong.

Ladies and gentlemen, please don't dress your child up as the Prince of Darkness. Or in the case of the black robed kiddo - 'Servant of the Devil' costume. Fine they look kind of cute. And I am coming from a repressed Judeo-Christian background so bear with me, but really? Do you want to mess with that? It seems really driven by the parents. I mean, it doesn't strike me that a little gal is going to be like 'I want to be a devil!' Or maybe I just don't know little girls like that. I'm leaving lots of room for other opinion, folks. But I've also posted a mask for sale just in case you need to be scared straight. :)
Where to start. First off, I'm not a fan of The Office enough that I would know if this is a 'thing.' Please enlighten me if that's the case. The seller describes this as a handmade paper mache Michael Scott. And she's so proud of it, it's almost hard to critique. Almost. But WTF?? This is by far the weirdest thing I have ever seen. I *adore* handmade costumes but look at that head! The flared nostrils, creepy lips surrounding a hundred teeth. The bemused expression - on both of them. I'm glad they're in on their private joke together but I tell ya, I am disturbed.

Folks, it is about time for my favorite holiday of the year -- Halloween! Probably at this point I should just leave it to kids to celebrate, but living in New York allows me to get dressed up with thousands of other New Yorkers every year and have fun. I love the creativity, the cuteness, the bizarre-o-ness, the humor and everything in between that Halloween brings out. It reminds me of my crafty days where I made all my costumes as a kid. It reminds me of blissful childhood nights where we could safely cruise the neighborhood for bagfuls of CANDY. And it all happens during the most beautiful time of year where the leaves are crunching underfoot and there's a crispness to the air. eBay is a wealth of entertainment during Halloween. I've gathered some of the best for you to enjoy this week. Yes, a whooooooole week.
No? Oh, the Wizard of Oz. Looks like the Wizard of Oz has forgetten where she parked...her buggy (this has an Amish vibe to me). Very confusing.
Anyone who knows me is aware that I strenuously object to 'sexy' costumes for Halloween. (That said I've been 'sexy' costumed for the past two years. Go figure.). Anyway, the classic Sexy Cat is a go to for many a gal with little imagination, because it's fairly easy to do and really does pack a punch with the gents. Though it is less easy, as evidenced here, to capture that allure in a still photo.
I guess I should know better by now that there would be theme used socks. But really, I'm quite taken aback. I just didn't think the sock sniffers would care so much about the holidays. I have to say, this makes me feel a little queasy about what's coming around Christmas. Baby Jesus + well worn socks.

I think it would be a come down to buy and wear this dress without the promise of being projected larger than life. I don't just want to wear it to some regular ol' cocktail party, I want my close up, too!

Seriously, it looks like she is wearing this coat for warmth, not to model it for sale. The furrowed brow and body language makes me think she's hungry or needs heroin. Kind of has a hooker who had a bad night vibe, no?

Clearly, this new seller doesn't understand the competition in her category. Slip those things on, sister, and nothing else, if you want to play in the used undies game! Your smile may get you phone numbers in bars, but if you want to rack up dollars you've got to get smutty.
