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).

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.

    • A Massive Lake Of Molten Carbon The Size Of Mexico Was Just Discovered Under The US

      A recent scientific discovery has drastically changed our view of the global carbon cycle and identified a new significant risk. Researchers have discovered a giant lake or reservoir made up of molten carbon sitting below the western US. The molten carbon (primarily in the form of carbonate) reservoir could drastically and immediately change the global climate for over a decade if it were to be released. Thankfully there is little risk in the near future of this happening. The carbon sits 217 miles beneath the surface of the Earth in the upper mantle and has no immediate pathway to the surface. In total the lake covers approximately 700,000 square miles, approximately the size of Mexico. This

    • A doctor called his broker during a delivery. It will cost $33.8 million.

      Marla Dixon was in the final stage of labor and ready to deliver a baby boy when the obstetrician arrived at her bedside at North Shore Medical Center in Miami. The doctor ordered nurses to restart a drug to strengthen contractions, failed to perform a Cesarean section — and walked away from Dixon’s room for long periods, once for an eight-minute phone call from his stockbroker, the verdict said. By the time the baby was delivered on Dec. 2, 2013, he was blue in the face and his limbs were limp, according to the verdict handed down by U.S. District Judge Robert Scola. It took a medical team to revive the infant, named Earl, Jr., and by then he had severe brain damage from lack of oxygen, according to the lawsuit filed by Dixon and the boy’s father, Earl Reese-Thornton, Sr.

      If you are reading this, you know I like to pick things apart. Drafts, situational coaching and players -- you name it. But somehow, as I did the grades for this year's NFL Draft, I had to stop for a second because I think many teams did a good job handling their board. I didn't give out one "F" this year. I handed out five "A" grades. What is wrong with me? Call me Mr. Softy. The five teams that earned "A" grades in my mind were the Arizona Cardinals , Cincinnati Bengals , Green Bay Packers , San Francisco 49ers and -- surprise, surprise -- the Cleveland Browns . As chic as it has become to rip the Browns, there is no denying they did a great job with their draft. They had a lot of picks and

    • After the Fyre Festival disaster, maybe don't trust models like Bella Hadid when they sell you things

      Now that the complete disaster that was Fyre Festival is over, it's time for the very attractive people who promoted the event to apologize.  On Saturday, model Bella Hadid let her fans know she was sorry about what went down.  SEE ALSO: Here's the official postmortem statement from Fyre Festival organizers ❤️... pic.twitter.com/5XqHXBGIn9 — Bella Hadid (@bellahadid) April 29, 2017 That's an apology, sort of. I mean, maybe don't promote some totally random thing that you've never experienced or barely know about next time. SEE ALSO: Instagram influencers are utter nonsense, and Fyre Fest proves it Hadid was one of the models—along with Elsa Hosk, Emily Ratajkowski, Lais Ribeiro, and Hailey Baldwin—who hyped up Fyre Festival on Instagram.  @rose_bertram: "Make sure to get your tickets for @fyrefestival 珞weekend two still available! #fyrefestival". #haileybaldwin #bellahadid #rosebertram #HaileyUpdates A post shared by Hailey Baldwin Updates (@baldwinsupdate) on Apr 4, 2017 at 6:43pm PDT In case you were wondering, Fyre Festival did not look like this. Instead, it was filled with disaster relief tents, gourmet meals consisting of cheese slices on bread, and fleeing festival-goers—many of whom paid thousands of dollars for the privilege.  Hadid and pals weren't the only models promoting the festival. The organizers also invited less famous models and "influencers" to attend for free if they posted about the event on Instagram.  Amanda Riley told her tragic story to The Hollywood Reporter .  "I was in L.A. about six months ago when I was offered these tickets — everything paid for. The organizers were trying to get a lot of promotion from models. A couple of friends and I were going to go; everything was paid and comped in exchange for a couple of posts to help them with marketing." Which she did! Packing to leave my home in Los Angeles to head back east to my home and my @wilhelminamodels family in NYC for 24 hours before heading to FYRE festival in the Bahamas for the weekend. Los Angeles will always be my home and this is probably the hardest it's ever been to leave but I'll be back soon (hopefully) Until next time LA xo  #LifeOfAmandaRiley A post shared by Amanda Riley Ferree (@lifeofamandariley) on Apr 25, 2017 at 6:41pm PDT It turns out she got stranded in Miami, so she didn't get to witness the horror in the Bahamas for herself.  "I got lucky since I didn't pay upfront for anything," she wrote. "Worst case, I have to buy one flight back to New York." Um, sad? Anyway, she ends her story with this: "I’m staying out of it because I’m kind of complete with it. My friends and family are safe. And I didn’t pay for anything. So I just don’t want anything to do with that company anymore or deal with these people." Unlike Hadid, she doesn't even apologize for shilling for Fyre Festival—although, to be fair, she didn't promote it as hard.  The lesson here: Don't do things just because models tell you to. Because there's a pretty good chance they'll keep promoting things they know nothing about for cash and free stuff.  WATCH: This electric surfboard can move without the waves
