Brooklyn-based brand Good Wood NYC has been cranking out cool wood pieces that are carved and designed to “combine art and fashion” since 2007. Each hand-made piece is created with the utmost attention to detail, and the brand has garnered attention from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Nas, Chromeo, Bun B and Mos Def.
This spooky season, Good Wood has introduced a Halloween-themed collection, featuring a creepy skate deck, bracelet, and two ... Read More

Halloween happens to be one of the best holidays ever, but it also can be one of the most upsetting. Whether it’s sexist, historically inaccurate, a shameless rip-off of something in pop culture (A “Ticktock Orange Juice”, anyone?), or just plain stupid, there's a cheap, offensive costume for everyone out there. As a Halloween enthusiast I thought I was pretty well acquainted with the dark underbelly of cheap mass produced costumes. Turns out, not ... Read More
I was a Pan Am Stewardess!When it comes to Halloween, I'm no Heidi Klum, but thankfully I was able to whip up a costume using most things I already own. I wore a blue vintage dress, a blue and red Sunline Airlines scarf, and a recently bought cape that actually matched perfectly. What really made the costume though was my Pan Am bag! When I saw it at a vintage store, I knew it would be perfect for a costume or even just to lug around my ... Read More
Do you love Halloween? Do you hate your neighbors? Do cobwebs and Frankenstein window clings just not cut it for you? There's a new terror sweeping suburbia: Light-O-Rama!
Last Christmas, I became obsessed with videos of people using Light-O-Rama to create crazy music-synchronized lighting effects on their houses (the Slayer house started it all for me). It comes as no surprise, then, that the same breed of people do it for Halloween, ... Read More
Every year, Heidi Klum throws an all-out Halloween bash and tries to top herself year after year in terms of costume intricacy. I kind of love when girls are unafraid to be not "pretty" in the name of an awesome Halloween costume and I love that for each costume, Heidi totally commits. This year, she's got two costumes in the works to be full revealed the Saturday before Halloween [updated above]. The first is some sort of monkey boy and the second is a ... Read More

I hope that many of you got the chance to watch Miss Representation on HBO. It is truly a remarkable and eye-opening documentary. One of the most amazing thing about the film, though, is how it’s launched a movement to end negative depictions of women in the media: MissRepresentation.org. Recently they’ve turned their campaign toward Halloween, including this video that some of the Miss Rep interns made on a trip to a store selling costumes for ... Read More

Halloween is a week away! Whether you're a pumpkin-carving, candy-craving kid-at-heart or can't wait for the Hallows' Eve hype to die like a horny teen in a slasher flick, you can't deny that the air gets a little weirder this time of year.
I've always looked forward to getting creative and making my own costumes (I tend to plan my next costume on November first). This year, unfortunately, I have to work on Halloween, but if I can make it a party, I ... Read More
Does marching around with a bunch of weird, wild women wearing beards and merkins sound appealing to you? If so, you may be an excellent candidate for the Bearded Oysters, an organization of 500+ parading ladies who hit the streets in custom costumes and show off their various talents for an adoring public. The club started in New Orleans as part of the Mardi Gras parade circuit, and is now looking to recruit in New York in time for the N.Y.C. Halloween Parade. As ... Read More

Can you guess what I am?I am really, really good at dreamcatching now and you can be to - check out the Dec/Jan issue of BUST when it drops for my super easy instructions. I wish I could wear this everyday. Not only did everyone that looked at me smize but I smiled so much back at 'em that my face hurt the next day! Long live Halloween. I was seriously in awesome-rager-afterglow for two days. I may wear this again next year, make some fake weed nugs and go as a ... Read More
