Dirty Looks

A quick look at Atlanta's fashion sense


Halloween gives people free rein to dress up like anything or anybody they want with license to look like an idiot. At Front Page News -- possibly the biggest and most painfully crowded Halloween party in Atlanta's history -- Dirty Looks peered beyond the Playboy bunnies and fairies and dudes dressed like ladies for the true essence of costuming: magical realism.

STATEMENT OF THE WEEK: An Oprah episode in the mid-'90s featured animal rights activists saying that dressing up pets was degrading to animals. I challenge them not to say, "awwww" to this picture. This young pimp is putting the "cock" back in Cocker Spaniel.

Straight from the pages of Look circa 1956, this throwback to "I Love Lucy" reminds you that Valium kicks in much faster with a martini chaser or two. Her companion, a Betty Boop impersonator, dons a short retro dress from Wet Seal, which she referred to as "Wet Slut."

Costume originality is so necessary. Who wants to be another crappy clown or hobo or Luke Skywalker when you can be an Assface? Just make sure you hand him an Altoid if he's talking too close.

Cribbing from Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft cyber sex appeal, this cute young Sim is taking the concept of living vicariously through video game characters to new heights. Domo Arigato, Mrs. Roboto.
