Halloween, Gangnam Style

October 9th, 2012 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

It occurred to me this morning that every other Asian brotha–and some sistas–on the Halloween-celebrating planet will probably be going as PSY this year. (And, as a Twitter friend pointed out, those who don’t will likely have “Oppa Gangnam Style” shouted at them anyway. Cringe.) Idolator’s posted a handy How-To Guide on how to dress like the Most Famous Asian of 2012, including where to buy that iconic powder-blue tux.

Idolator even details where to buy PSY’s lady posse outfits, though going as somebody’s backup dancer for Halloween when you could be anything else in the world seems particularly weak sauce, on the same spectrum of creativity as all Sexy Whatever costumes.

And if there’s a Gangnam Style sidekick to be, wouldn’t it be way more fun to be the old lady in the visor on the bus?

The First And Last Time I Went As A “Sexy (Something)” For Halloween

October 29th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

I had just moved to a new town and was still in the process of making friends.

My cat, Jimmy, had run away in the move.

I was living in a shitty neighborhood where people were always coming and going so no one bothered to keep their grass green or their house paint from peeling.

I was into this guy, Chris, who was so not into me.

I was feeling vulnerable and alone.

And, yes, I was desperate for attention.

Japan Revolutionizes The Girl Group

October 19th, 2010 | 10 comments | Posted by Jen

Watch your back, K-pop!

Although Japan’s been eating your dust for years in the girl group game, it’s recently produced quite possibly the most unforgettable pop sensation this world has ever seen.

Give it up for HRP-4C!

Unforgettable, in every way, but mostly in the skin-crawling, vertigo-inducing, scarier-than-clowns, make-it-stop way.

The upshot? She’d make for a terrific Halloween costume, especially if you hate trick-or-treaters, children in general, or, really, all people.

With Halloween right around the corner, a lot has been said already about the latest crop of costumes–from the good to the bad to the offensive. An Illegal Alien costume, which was pulled from the shelves of Target and Walgreens this week after complaints from immigrant rights groups, seems to be this year’s undisputed winner in the last category.


But didja know that offensive Halloween costumes even extend to pets? Here are some of the worst:

1) “The Geisha Dog Costume”

Description: Your cutie will look vibrant and colorful in this Chinese themed dog dress! Features an adorable Asian floral print on magenta with faux thread Chinese toggles on the back and white satin trim.


Okay, who’s going to break it to the costume makers that geishas aren’t Chinese?
