Halloween Costumes Go Viral
Los Angeles is a social media capital (Beverly Hills is home to MySpace headquarters) and epicenter of Hollywood's tweet-crazed narcissists. So we thought we'd take a look at the hottest, social-media-inspired costumes for the quasi-holiday that's tailor-made for L.A.
Twitter's dreaded Fail Whale.
"Whether or not Falcon Heene truly scared his parents when his father's
helium contraption took flight or whether it was a real-time reality
show publicity stunt," Callari writes, "it will sure make for a great
piece, when you float around the neighborhood in your own balloon."
We're surprised that Tila Tequila -- bruises or not -- didn't make the list. She's a Twitter and MySpace fiend. And what about Facebook Strange Friend-Request Guy (number of mutual friends 0 -- ignore)?. The late Gourmet magazine, with Xs for eyes, might be a stretch of a costume. But we know someone will be dressed as ... swine flu. Too soon?
