Not so scary decorations
Not all decorations have to be spooky spider webs or hanging skeletons. Spark things up a bit with these colourful (and glittery) pumpkin lights. You can totally hang them around your dorm and watch some horror films with your roommates. [lesliehay]
Epic music videos
Michael Jackson has one of the best Halloween-inspired music videos EVER in “Thriller.” The 13-minute video is full of zombies, werewolves, and a full moon. Need I say more? At least you’ll enjoy some great music and dance moves while watching! Oh and who could forget “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” where they end up at a haunted house after their bus breaks down. Classics. [threatened]
Hitting up the pubs tomorrow night?
Even though the majority of Halloween parties took place this weekend, I’m sure you’ll still want to go out tomorrow night after a long day of school. Just BEWARE if you have any 8 a.m. classes the next morning, you might want to set your alarm! [daay-dreaam]
Mean Girls reference is a must
Once you hit your teen years, there’s a zero percent chance that you want your parents to go Halloween shopping with you. Technically you can throw on a pair of ears (bunny, mouse, cat, devil, etc.), a tight dress and ta-da, you’re now an animal. Best of all, it’s socially acceptable. [whatshouldbetchescallme]

So, no hard feelings? Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne while his girlfriend dressed up as Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. Whibley donned a blond wig with green streaks and a hoodie while his girlfriend Ari Cooper wore a Jack Daniels T-shirt and a blond wig as Kroeger.
While it’s pretty HILARZ the joke it also kind of mean-spirited. Whatever frustrations you have with your ex partner don’t need to be aired out in public or worse, turned into a joke on Halloween. You can’t take things in Celebrityville too seriously, but we can definitively say there were two people who probably didn’t think it was so funny.
Avril’s new fiance ranted against Whibley on Twitter: “Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!” He added: “You owe us a couples bowling grudge match see you when I get back from Russia!” Ouch!!

Perfect for bloggers, techies, law students who don’t pay attention in class and lonely Redditors in their mom’s basement.
Other ideas? My Little Pony, LOL cat and the Overly Attached Girlfriend. Also, if you want to be a planker, you can literally situate yourself on top of the beer pong table and refuse to move. [Via Buzzfeed]

Don’t want to don a pair of lacy underpants and a busty corset this Halloween? EmotiStyle comedians Shamikah and Molly feel you — they even wrote a song about it, featuring Project Runway’s Tim Gunn (Mark Douglas).
In the video they rap about all the things you can be this Halloween (Bill Cosby, Hillary Clinton, Blue Man Group) that aren’t slutty. For example, you can be a nurse — you don’t have to be a sexy nurse.
While the video was intended to point out alternative costumes for ladies who don’t want to have their “tits out,” commenters are accusing the duo of slut shaming: “There’s so many things you could learn from this song (use your head not your tits) like, keep your clothes on, keep it classy,” they sing.
Ultimately women should be free to wear what they want (regardless of the day/season) without fear of judgement. There are strong commentators from both camps!! What do you guys think?
Also, shameless self-advertising here, but ANDPOP came up with an awesome list of Halloween costumes you guys should consider!

Gaga, who has gained millions with her multiple number one singles, went bankrupt after her 2009 Monster Ball Tour.
The tour, comprised of 200 shows over an 18-month period, ended in April 2011 and grossed nearly $200 million.
However, the show’s revenue was clearly not enough to cover the cost of Gaga’s extravagant costumes.
In an interview with the Financial Times, the pop star confessed her financial problems.
“I remember I called everybody and said, ‘Why is everyone saying I have no money?” she said.
“This is ridiculous, I have five No. 1 singles.’” Their reply? “Well, you’re $3 million in debt.”
Well, seeing with the recent release of Gaga’s new Born This Way album has outsold the UK top 10 charts, the flamboyant star probably won’t have a lot financial difficulties in the near future!
…That is of course if she goes even bigger on her costumes for her next tour!!
Lady Gaga claims she went bankrupt during her ‘Monster Ball’ world tour, reports CTV.
With her tour earning an estimated $125 million and sold out tickets being the norm at every show, one would think Gaga was racking in the dough, right? Wrong.
Despite the success of the tour, Gaga claims the production of the show, from her couture costumes to many backup dancers and set design, caused her to actually spend more money than she was earning.
She told the ‘Financial Times’ newspaper: “I put everything in the show, and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the ‘Monster Ball’. And it was funny because I didn’t know! And I remember I called everybody and said, ‘Why is everyone saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five number one singles’ — and they said, ‘Well, you’re $3 million in debt.’ ”
That’s too funny, but props to her for not compromising on the integrity of her show. If Gaga wants something, she’ll get it.
Gaga does admit to spending her hard earned cash, though, but not on who you think. The ‘Born This Way’ hit maker claims the only real riches she’s spent is for her parents.
“The only big things I’ve purchased are my dad’s heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga licence plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car.”
I would really love to meet her parents, I think that would be an interesting interview. I couldn’t even imagine saying ‘yep, Lady Gaga is my daughter.’ But if she bought me a Rolls-Royce, I’m sure that wouldn’t be too difficult.
