Celebrity Halloween Costume Help

By Liz Kelly

You realize, I hope, that Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress like a celebrity? It is your chance to release your inner [insert celeb's name here] without making a complete jack-o-lantern of yourself. I'm still figuring out my costume, but here are a few helpful sites for anyone else out there hoping to work a little transformation:

Gabe Kaplan in a box doesn't make it past my gov't servers.

I read it too fast anyways. I thought it was Gabe Kapler in a box. Which would have been nicer, though slightly less celebrity-esque.

We were going as a family - Kfed, Pregnant trashy Britney and Sean Preston (I'm not pregnant but haven't quite lost the baby weight).

But then we heard there are two otehr Brit and KFed couples. So I'm back to square one.

I also thought it said "Gabe Kaplar." That would have been eye candy for the rest of the day. *sigh* A girl can dream, though.

I saw this at Target--an easy costume and lots of fun. Of course I'm not sure if kids these days would get it.

Darn, when the page was first loading I thought that Borat mask was Gene Weingarten. I am soooooo disappointed I won't be able to trick-or-treat as Gene.

How about Mark Foley, handing out sheets of paper (Congressional pages) with overly-friendly email messages on them?



"Proud to meet you!"

"Have a nice day!"
