Ridiculous Halloween Costumes That Will “Oh…Wow” The Party

I thought of a few of absurdist Halloween costume ideas, so you don’t have to. These are not for the last minute draw-whiskers-on-your-face kind of person, rather these are for the individual that wants to win Halloween.

You have approximately 21 days to get this together. Allow me to help.

1.) You could go as Beyoncé’s Ultrasound. We all know that the announcement of Bey’s pregnacy was a momentous in this year’s history. Twins Rumi and Sir Carter will probably be the first twin presidents someday, so it’s important to start honoring them early. I know what you’re thinking, “Maddie, how am I going to pull off being an..ultrasound…?” Well, allow me to explain with this concept art. Obviously, you’re going to need two people for this one.

2) You could go as Baroque Obama. Dress in Baroque period clothing with a puffy collar and as #44.

3) To really spook your friends, go as Ann Coulter.

4) Get a motorized scooter, some cardboard, and remove your spine to become Sean Spicer with a moving podium à la SNL.

5) Lastly, are you one of those people that wants a costume your friends, “just won’t get” ? Or are you afraid that you’re running out of sexy costume ideas? Impress yourself with an original, *quirky* sexy version of the best Guillermo Del Toro film to date. All you need for these ones, is well, professional help.

There you have it. Which one of these amazing ideas are you going to steal? Please, don’t all thank me at once.

Lizzo Is ‘Good As Hell’

The time in between Beyoncé albums is grueling and unpredictable. We never quite know when she’ll announce an album release on Instagram or drop Lemonade. Fear not. I have found a solution to Beyoncé-less eras: a feminist lyrical powerhouse that goes by the name Lizzo.


The 28-year-old alternative hip hop artist performed a few songs from her latest EP Coconut Oil this past weekend at Entertainment Weekly’s Pop Culture festival and that’s when it all clicked. For optimal viewing of this post, click the video below and listen to the audio as you read.

Lizzo’s onstage energy is a magnetic force-field of confidence. She’s a woman, she’s thick, she’s black, and she’s proud. During her performance, Lizzo and her entourage wore fierce single-ladies-esque black unitards for best booty-shakin’ conditions. Her confidence was a breath of fresh air, and her pipes were the wind to carry that air. She sang about loving herself, her fellow ladies, and about being turnt. That’s the trifecta of a perfect feminist anthem and I’m %100 here for it.

Lizzo main hit right now is called Good As Hell and that is a perfect way to describe her. Good As Hell came out this past March and has over 3,000,000 plays on Spotify.

She may have only had this one viral hit so far, but I believe there is much more coming from Lizzo. Now is the time to get on board with her before she blows up and is soon the name on everyone’s lips – because isn’t it cool to know about things before your friends do? You’re welcome.
