Weirdest Costume:
Annoying Orange Costume

Talk about creepy – an orange fruit costume (that could double for a pumpkin) with human eyes and a human mouth; perfect for chasing away all Trick or Treaters for years to come.

Annoying Orange is an actual character that stars in a well-known in a comedy web series created by Dane Boedigheimer back in 2009.

Funniest Costume:

LMFAO Red Foo “I’m Sexy and I know it” Costume

Just the title of this costume alone is hilarious. If you’re a fan of LMFAO (the music group, not the acronym) you’ll get a kick out of this ‘super sexy’ Halloween costume.

Become Red Foo for the night with this cow print jacket with matching pants, and a white t-shirt that says “Everyday I’m Shuffling”. 

You really do need the wig and white glasses to bring this costume to life,  you can buy those separately here: Black wig ($12, Yahoo! Shopping) ; white plastic glasses ($9, Urban Outfitters).

Don't forget to practice your sweet dance moves with LMFAO’s “Sorry for Party Rocking” CD.

Blood Vampiress Costume

Scariest Costume: Blood Vampiress Costume

There is something stylishly wicked about this classic vampiress costume; could it be the lovely blood-red ombre sleeves and skirt design?

With the right Halloween makeup and vampire fangs (don’t forget the fake blood capsules) you can spook your neighbors into giving you a little extra candy.

This costume is complete with the vampire collar and belt, but I also suggest adding gothic costume jewelry, and a black wig to really make this look pro.

The specimen is definitive proof that two-legged dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus rex had bird-like feathers. While a dinosaur-era feather had been found embedded in amber in 2011 and again in June 2016, those small specimens…

    • Scientists discover dinosaur trapped in amber in unprecedented find

      'Once in a lifetime find' The findings, which shed fresh light on how dinosaurs looked, are published in the December issue of Current Biology. Ryan McKellar, a paleontologist at the Royal Saskatchwan Museum in Canada and co-author of the paper, says he was blown away when Xing first showed him the piece of amber. "It's a once in a lifetime find. The finest details are visible and in three dimensions." Fragments of dinosaur-era bird wings have been found preserved in amber before but this is the first time part of a mummified dinosaur skeleton has been discovered, McKellar said. The tail section belongs to a young coelurosaurian -- from the same group of dinosaurs as the predatory velociraptors

At a ceremony in Hawaii on Wednesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, U.S. Pacific Command Commander Adm. Harry Harris made a remark that was clearly about the quarterback. “You can bet that the men and women we honor today – and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago – never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,” Harris said, according to the Associated Press.

    • Japan's sex problem is so bad that people are quitting dating and marrying their friends

      The Japanese sex problem has become so desperate that its young population has given up on dating and is just marrying friends. A government survey found 69% of Japanese men and 59% of Japanese women do not have a romantic partner. One Japanese aggregator website has since been awash with stories of how people have simply married lifelong friends. The country has one of the lowest birth rates in the world, with just 8.4 children being born per 1,000 inhabitants over the past five years. Its population of 127 million people is predicted to decrease to 87 million by 2060. The survey, carried out by the country's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, also reported that about

    • Tina Fey Has One Answer For Why Hillary Clinton Lost The Election

      Like many voters and political experts around the country, Tina Fey has been trying to figure out why Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election. Strategists may point to campaign mistakes while others may discuss Clinton’s likability factor, but Fey offered a different point of view entirely. “I promised myself I wouldn’t get up here today and talk about the election, because when I get written up in Breitbart, I want it to be because they’re mad that I’m making an all-female Hitler biopic,” said Fey at the Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women in Entertainment breakfast, in reference to the ultra-conservative website. “But I have to say, I think the real reason that Hillary lost ― and it’s the thing that people are afraid to talk about ― not enough celebrity music videos urging people to vote,” she continued through laughs.

    • What does "Hotel California" really mean? (And other questions for Don Henley)

      The Eagles are among the 2016 Kennedy Center honorees. The band formed in the early 1970s and helped define classic rock on the radio, becoming one of the world’s most successful bands. But when drummer Don Henley hears one of their songs on the radio now, he usually turns it down. “After 44 years, you just really don’t want to hear ‘em when you’re off,” Henley said. “When I’m off duty, I’d rather listen to somebody else, or just silence. Silence is good. You don’t get much of it these days anywhere. So I’m a big fan of silence.” He may be a fan of silence, but with the Eagles, Don Henley created some of the most popular sounds in American music.   Like their hit song, the Eagles seemed really
