Whether you'll be cruisin' the neighborhood in search of the house that gives out the full-sized candy bars or dancing the night away at your best friend’s party, I’ve rounded up my favorite picks for the weirdest, funniest, scariest and most sexy Halloween costumes for this season.

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. 

Start practicing your Annoying Orange voice early on to really get into character on Halloween night by watching the series on YouTube.

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.

Sexiest Costume:
Mesmerizing Mermaid Costume


You’ll give those Disney princesses a run for their money in this little number! If you want to rock those abs you worked on all summer, here’s a great opportunity to dive into this sexy mermaid costume.

This costume includes a sequined halter top and the ocean-blue floor-length tail. Accessorize your siren with a seaweed boa ($7, halloween-mall.com) and a gorgeous long wig, like this Red Deluxe Dream Girl Wig ($17, Yahoo! Shopping).

Couple’s Costume: Bacon & Eggs Costume

Sizzle at the party with your partner, dressed as breakfast! Don’t scramble last-minute to find your couple’s costume, because bacon and eggs make the perfect pair.

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.

  • ‘Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller Wants No Jail Time In Fraud Case; Feds Disagree

    Just two days before the first part of Abby Lee Miller’s sentencing in her multi-million dollar fraud and illegal currency import cases, the Dance Moms host is insisting that the hiding of over $800,000 was all because she became too famous too fast. Miller is also saying she never hurt anyone, she’s been humiliated publicly and she doesn’t deserve to be put behind bars –  though the feds really don’t see it that way. “Ms. Miller respectfully requests that the Court impose a non-custodial sentence after considering her acceptance of responsibility and the nature and characteristics of her conduct and her life,” say Miller’s lawyers in a sentencing memorandum submitted in federal court on Tuesday. “Indeed, upon proper analysis, Ms. Miller submits that a sentence of probation would be entirely consistent with the advisory Sentencing Guidelines,’ the paperwork by Robert Ridge and Brandon Verdream of Pittsburgh firm Clark Hill asserts.
