Halloween Costume ideas from 5th Ave vintage shops

Need a last minute costume idea? If a sexy Chewbacca isn't cutting it this year, we've rounded up three costumes that you can create from vintage shops along 5th Avenue. These aren't your cookie cutter Devil costumes from the popup Ricky's, which is only in town for a few more days. Sure, they're a little pricier. But it's vintage! And you're totally worth it.

[What To Do In Park Slope When...] You're Dating on a Budget 

Way too often I hear other dudes complain that they can't date because it's too expensive. They're wrong. To quote Kevin Bacon: "Anybody can get laid when they're famous. I got laid a lot when I was not famous, and that was something I was very proud of back then. Being a fucking waiter with no money, not a lot of drugs, just a mattress on the floor - and still being able to pull chicks. That's when you separate the men from the boys." With that in mind, I'm about to drop some serious knowledge on the broke-ass, would-be-playboys out there in Park Slope. If you've only got $20 to spend on a first date, this is how you use it. Read closely and take notes.

The sidewalk chalk in Park Slope has stopped being polite and started getting real

PHOTO VIA NINEDAVESI won't pretend to be smart enough to have any idea what the hell the above sidewalk chalk art really means. I spotted it on Sunday between 5th and 6th ave, near the similarly named 5th and 6th streets  (I was fighting a mean hangover by that point. You can't expect me to remember the exact location). Clearly it has something to do with "House Prices." But what is that y-axis supposed to be? Years? Blocks in Park Slope? Number of children living in the house? My god, would it have killed the artist to provide some more information!? Like, you took all the time to color within the lines. At least give me some discription.

So remember when we told you about that Bushwick performance artist who turned an art gallery into a birthing center? "The Birth Of Baby X" has come to fruition -- Marni Kotak delivered a baby boy inside the space this past Tuesday in front of Godknowshowmany spectators. According to NBC New York, "A video of the birth will be added to the gallery's upcoming exhibition." Wonderful.

Whassup: Halloween Edition

via Earth Art

Show of hands, how many of you are already wearing your costumes? Ok, you can put your hands down. I can't really see them -- this is a blog. And, anyway, you're gonna need every single one of your hands for grasping candy, carving pumpkins, and pointing at the sexiest/funniest/most-falling-apart costumes you see. Mask up, because it's Whassup: Halloween Edition:

* Thursday, Oct. 27: Tales of the Creep, Union Hall: Wear your favorite costume and a pair of boxers you don't mind shitting. Ghost stories are scary enough, try hearing them on several pints of Checker Cab. This night of goose-pimple narration ends with live music by The Living Kills and others. 7:30pm Doors, $7.
