IN Halloween Guide 2012 Your inbox, your tv, your Facebook newsfeed, the bumper of the car in front of you in traffic. There's nowhere you can go to get away from the presidential race right now. So rather than bitch about the obvious, we've decided to embrace it. That's why we created presidential pumpkin stencils. You can carve a regular old pumpkin next year, this year get in the spirit, get political and really make a statement with your orange art. You've already picked a side we're sure, so now all you need is a pumpkin. Happy carving (and voting)!

Tape your favorite candidate's stencil to your pumpkin. 3. Using a push pin or a tracing wheel from a pumpkin carving kit, make a dotted outline of the stencil pattern on your pumpkin. 4.

DIY Costume Ideas Sure you could be a sexy nurse. Or a sexy witch. Or a sexy whatever. Again. Or you could think outside the box—and by "box" we mean pre-packaged costumes—and create your own. With just a little creativity and planning, we bet you can come up with something much cooler than a run of the mill costume shop get-up. It will probably be way more popular at whatever party or club you're going to and maybe even save you some cash. Inspiration for clever costumes is pretty easy to come by. We didn't have to look any further than Facebook, the Presidential Election, reality TV and IMDB to come up with tons of ideas. Here are some of our favorites—each one is totally of the moment and fairly easy to pull off, especially if you use our pointers.


You can bet your ass if you're Honey Boo Boo Child, people will get it. And probably be jealous they didn't think of it. Essentials: Pink frilly dress, blonde wig, pageant crown and, of course, a can of her infamous "Go-Go Juice." You'll also need to master that accent and at least one catchphrase—Honey Boo Boo ain't nothing without her "redneckognize."


A perfect group costume for a group that isn't good at planning. Just get together, pop bottles, act rich and douchey and you're pretty much there. Essentials: Champagne, credit cards and, of course, iPhones.


Kim Kardashian has a new boyfriend and a new cat—so even if you were her last year, you can do it again. Perfect for couples looking for an excuse to pull out their best heels and sneakers. Essentials: A tight dress, hair extensions and a booty (real or fake—totally up to you) for the ladies. Sunglasses and a hoodie/blazer combo for the guys. A white pouffy cat (again real or fake—totally up to you) as the adorable Mercy.



If you've got a blue blazer, this is the costume for you. Or a black blazer. Or a pink blazer. Or really any blazer. Essentials: A fitted blazer, sunglasses, a bow tie and black and white dress shoes. Bonus points if you can pull off the dance moves.

The latest incarnation of the countrypop superstar is all about "Red"—it's the title of her new album. Take that and run with it. Essentials: Red lipstick, a guitar, pretty much any cutesy, girly outfit. Don't forget to practice Taylor's signature surprised face in the mirror while getting ready.

’FIFTY SHADES OF GREY'S’ ANASTASIA STEELE This one is pretty easy— even if you haven't read the book. We haven't, but we still know how to pull off trashy romance novel chic. Essentials: Handcuffs, a grey tie, heels you can't really walk in and maybe a copy of the book for reference just in case anybody thinks you're a streetwalker.

Get ahead of the game and do a “Great Gatsby” inspired costume before Baz Luhrmann's sure to be masterpiece comes out next year. We predict it will be everywhere Halloween '13. Essentials: Flapper dresses, glittery headbands and costume jewelry for the ladies. Tuxes for the boys. Google Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan—you'll get a pretty perfect picture of what you should be going for.

From lattes to beers to muffins, pumpkin seems to pop up in just about everything this time of year. Fall's favorite ingredient even makes an appearance on the menu at downtown's newest restaurant Carmen's Lunch Bar in the form of spiced organic pumpkin seeds. Do yourself a favor and order them—you won't be sorry. Here are some recipes to help you get on the pumpkin bandwagon—courtesy of Chef Kiley Bolster from The Magnolia.


”Mad Men” is so last year. “Downton Abbey” is the latest "it" TV show with amazing costume design just begging you to rip it off. Essentials: Vintage everything—dresses, hats and gloves. Pearls, pale skin and tight curled updo's are also a must.

CURRIED PUMPKIN SOUP 2 12 oz cans pumpkin purée 3 12 oz cans coconut milk 16 oz Vegetable stock 4 tablespoons curry powder One teaspoon grated ginger One yellow onion, finely diced Two cloves garlic, grated over microplane Greek yogurt Olive oil Salt & pepper to taste Sauté onion in olive oil until translucent. Add in ginger, garlic and curry powder and let cook a few minutes. Add


Tagg, Craig, Josh, Matt and Ben might not be very exciting individually, but put the five together and you've got a pretty entertaining and easy group costume idea. Essentials: Five boys, styled to look like a bland, yet handsome, Tommy Hilfiger ad. Add nametags like they wore on Conan to help keep track of who's who.

in all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and leave it alone, at least thirty minutes, but it only gets better the longer you wait. Blend with immersion blender. Taste, add salt & pepper to taste. Serve with dollop of Greek yogurt and fresh cracked pepper. Serves 6. PUMPKIN PUDDING TRIFLES Jell-O Vanilla Pudding, prepared according to box directions One can puréed pumpkin One teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice One box gingersnap cookies, crumbled Whisk puréed pumpkin into vanilla pudding, add in pumpkin pie spice. In a half-pint mason jar (or wine glass, etc), begin layering each the gingersnap crumbles and pumpkin pudding in alternating layers, finishing with pudding layer. Top with dollop of whipped topping and extra gingersnap crumbles. Serves 4. If you're too lazy to cook these awesome recipes, stop by The Magnolia. Kiley always has a fall treat or two on the menu.
