Think you've got a genius dress-up idea for this October 31st? Stop a minute and reevaluate. It could be a recipe for disaster. Here are Cosmo's big no-no's.Read More »from Halloween Costumes That Seem Like a Good Idea...but Aren't
1. One of those full-body, painted-on costumes. Someone spills a cocktail and you could have a major wardrobe malfunction.
2. The Snuggie. Sure, you'd be warm and cozy all night, but there's no way you're getting any action in that thing.
3. It's easy to strap on a bridal veil and a swine flu mask and pretend to be The Hills fame w---- Heidi Montag, but the risk of being hit on by a Spencer Pratt wannabe is just too horrifying.
4. Any type of Lycra catsuit. Not only is peeing a challenge, you'll also have perpetual camel toe.
5. Kate Gosselin. The reverse-mullet wig is bound to be plentiful in costume shops this year, but please resist the urge to keep this story going.
6. Paris Hilton. Too easy.
7. A sexy nurse, maid, or cop...in an XXS. We get it, you want to show some skin. Play it safe and go with the XS. You're going

What he's saying to himself: Nothing is a bigger mood-kill for a guy than hearing about a woman's ex before, after, and especially during the act of humping and bumping.

I Think They're Hot!
By Bethany Heitman
I was sooo not one of those pre-teens who hung posters of hot guys on my wall. Seriously, there wasn't a JTT or Luke Perry photo in sight. But a few weeks ago I walked by a store that had a life-sized cardboard cut out of Edward Cullen on display. For the first time in my life, I contemplated shoplifting. See, I honestly can't come up with anything sexier than vampires. Think about it, they're the ultimate bad boys. And what girl can resist a guy that's a little naughty?
The sexiest thing about Edward (from Twilight) or Bill (from True Blood) is that they're both mysterious, dark, and brooding. After all, they have to keep to themselves because they can't let everyone know their secret - which means they don't have frat boy friends constantly around.
