Top 5 Halloween ideas to make you freak-ay!

1. The queen of all things spangled and strange Lady Gaga (cliched I know, but AS IF we could do this without a mention. This is why we decided to get it out of the way first. Love you GAGA!)
We suggest the meat ensemble she sported for the cover of Vogue Japan. Lady Gaga is set to be a festive favourite this year so you'll need to stand out and if the lack of covering wont ensure that, the smell certainly will!

2. Charity collector. No doubt a little frowned upon but hey! Girls gotta eat. Stand yourself at the entrance of the party of choosing and shake your little bucket and hope for the best. Worst out come - your dero ass will get booted and your face slaundered on the front pages of LOSER WEEKLY. Best outcome, you arrive home $200 richer and possibly with a few clothes donations too.

Tin man: Salvation Army collectors have been told not to rattle their tins as it could be construed as religious harassment

3. (Insert appropriate title here)
I dont even know what to make of this one but it scares the shit out of us here at Wear + Tear!!! Mission accomplished!

4. Julia Gillard. Speaks for itself really. Scary! no?

5.  This one heeds warning. Be prepared to have teenage girls camping in your front yard, women giving up their first borns and underwear lining your porch - sounds good to you? Then you should select No. 5 ROBERT PATTINSON as your costume of choice.
Twihards and teeny desperate housewives alike have had very odd behaviour reported when it comes to Patto's fan base whom, upon staring in Harry Potter, barely received any acclaim at all.
You only need a few key things to pull this off. a Bad accent, thinning hair (so much so that it requires you to scruff it up as high and mighty as possible to disguise aforementioned thinning) and vampire tendancies. If you can manage that then you'll be Halloween royalty.

Paris Pretties

Even though we're heading into Summer down here, it's still nice to mentally plan out what we'll be wearing come March and some colder weather (although these past few days have been strangely chilly in Sydney-town).

Enjoy the coats, trousers, it-bags and hot hair-do's!

Ghosts, witches, wizards, tricks, treats, pumpkins, cobwebs - it's all American and All good!

We here in Australia usually go for the horror look for Halloween, which is old-school to the Yanks. They are far beyond that and really just take the night as an opportunity to dress up as whatever they want.

In the meantime, some of these celebs (and I use the term very lightly for some of these peeps) have gotten into the spirit a little early.

But good on Gaga for being so super-spooky!

Who are YOU gonna dress up as for All Hallows Eve?

Colour Me Candy!

With all of the above images as evidence that it looks RAD, I plan to request some fairy-floss pink strands atop my platinum bleached plume. I don't think I can go the full hog just yet - what if I hate it? So I'm going to try a few streaks or bits painted onto the ends, so I can cut them off if I hate it.

My main inspiration is Gaga, naturally. She can pull off blonde, black, brown, grey, pink, yellow, green - it's insane! About 5 years ago I had long blonde hair and added bright purple to my fringe and hot pink underneath. It was not subtle, and for other students who didn't know their way around campus, they just "followed the purple".

So this time it's going to be more subtle.

Let us know what you think of this trend!

Love and fairyfloss,

Wear + Tear.

Girlfriend wear?

And so we are all by now well aquanted with the term boyfriend wear. Mostly used for ladies who need to make an excuse for those aged holes in the jeans and ill fitting wiatsline "Oh these are my boyfriends! Its supposed to fit like this!"

So will someone tell me what excuse these dudes coined up for the ever so feminine streamlined cuts they decided to step out of the house in? "Oh this old thing? It is my mothers. It still has her smell...mmm... chanel No. 5! Dont you JUST-LURVE IT! Teehehe"



 This outfit is alive with the sound of femininity! Given you wont be seeing this ensemble down at your local nunnery teamed with a Vivienne Westwood Habit (although I would like to see that happen)  it certainly didn't stop this fella from robbing the collection plate of its skirt donations!
He certainly was blessed with those chiseled features though... am I right ladies?

Why its 'Arry Pot'ar - As you've never seen him

We all got an eyeful when he made his first attempt at post Harry acting in his stage show Equus. But this is the new version. One coated in cosmic make-up and hell, even looking grown up. He is after all 21 now. Time for him to put his spell books on the shelf and his invisibilty cloak in storage (or the black market) and start some self promotion because J.K. ROWLING hasnt been crapping out books like she used to and it could very well mean these three young magicians could be performing magic shows on street corners with a top hat up turned for extra cash.
Young actors these days have so many options though. Throw some pecs on that boy and he could no doubt land himself a Calvin Klein commercial (and a shite load pf photoshopping)
Until then though Danny boy has actually churned out some pretty alright pics for Dazed magazine. Maybe there is hope for this young starlet.

Chanelling Robert Pattinson per chance. Perhaps this is his future comp card for any leading roles as a heart throb?

AGE: 21
EXPERIENCE: Have previously enjoyed roles as a magical saviour to the wizarding world
INTERESTS: Slaying bad guy ass like its no big thang! Yo!
FUTURE CAREER GOALS: Im looking for a role where I can attract as much female attention as Robert Pattinson. Damn! I would love to tap that Kirsten Stewart!!
