So this year, while my Harry is planning their five costumes, I'm hopeful that the little boys who want to be this year's Pink Power Ranger and the girls who fancy themselves as Antman get the encouragement they need to find and express every magical ounce of their Halloween joy.
Here's the deal: Start by baking your favorite cake--from a box, from scratch, whatever--and frost it as you normally would. Then, decorate it with one of our clever ideas, each of which uses some of that Halloween candy you've got lying around.
It will come as no surprise to reveal we're Big Fans of peanut butter cups. We like them so much we ate a whole bunch to find out which brand is the best. But for serious peanut-butter-and-chocolate enthusiasts, this giant "peanut butter cup" is what you need.
For years, the website Mysterious Heartland has sought out some of the most notable haunted locations throughout Illinois and the Midwest. As Mysteri...
As someone who appreciates both the anomalous and the scientific, I view these devices as early, perhaps naive attempts to demonstrate some solid proof of life after death, which left hordes of believers in their wake.
Fall is in the air. The leaves are changing, pagans are celebrating the autumnal equinox and the blood type of the average cat lady is 'Pumpkin Spice Latte'. Halloween is upon us.
Here is the definitive list of the best that Halloween has to offer from a guy who discovered that he knows way too much about the American candy industry while preparing this list.
At my first scareactor audition, I didn't understand how fun it would be to scare the sh*t out of random people. It's liberating to act in a new way and to have no one from your "real" life recognize you.
As much as we'd like to be the one who goes all out for Halloween -- full face paint, crazy costume, the works -- we just aren't. We'd rather take the holiday as an opportunity to switch up our standard beauty look and pay tribute to our favorite beauty icons.
This year, my 11-year-old, and at least half of her friends, are planning to dress as YouTube sensation Miranda Sings. I am SO on board with this costume.
Everyone knows the best Halloween house on the block. It's the one that looks stunning during the day, but terrifying in the dark. It's the one that no one wants to walk past in the evenings leading up to the 31st, but no one wants to miss on the big night.
We've all heard and read about how Halloween has notoriously been a holiday where women are viewed as objects and retailers market "sexy xyz" costumes to them. We present an alternative. We're asking women to #ReclaimHalloween, and celebrate their own version of sexy: women who live from the inside out.
One of the most wildly celebrated and beloved holidays in the United States is Halloween. Who doesn't love getting to dress up in ridiculous costumes, eating delicious candy, decorating pumpkins and going to costume parties.
Do you enjoy walking through dimly lit hallways splattered with blood and shrouded in fog, never knowing what's lurking around the corner or in the sh...
The Frankenstein family died out in 1602. The castle fell into ruin in the 19th century and, along with many ruined castles of Germany, became inspiration for poets, authors, and artists traveling through the country during the Romantic area.
About two decades ago, I first visited Six Flags Magic Mountain's Fright Fest with no idea what to expect.
