This is Amy Schumer and her boyfriend, furniture designer Ben Hanish, dressed as Eleven and Dustin from Stranger Things. Dustin is the kid with the lisp, played by Gaten Matarazzo. The actor has a disability called cleidocranial dysplasia, which affects bone development and has left him with some teeth missing. So Amy dressed as that character and tried to talk like him too, as you can see in the video below.

Eleven wait up it's me!

That’s such a great show and the hype has kind of faded around it after its release this summer so I like that they thought to dress up as characters from it. I also like that neither of them went as Lucas, you know what I’m saying. Amy has a large blindspot around race (to be generous) and Ben once did blackface as a costume, so it’s not out of the question that they would do this.

Here are some photos of people at Kate Hudson’s Halloween party over the weekend. We already covered Katy Perry’s Hillary Clinton costume. Plus Orlando Bloom went as Donald Trump as a troll, as you’ve seen.

Johnny Knoxville went in military gear, I think as a four star general. It’s technically not illegal to wear medals you didn’t earn, but it’s considered disrespectful to veterans. I think at least three of these are from the Army, there’s an Army Distinguished Service Cross, an Army Occupation Medal and an Army Good Conduct Medal. Maybe he got the medals from a relative at least.


Suki Waterhouse just threw a bunch of clothes together to make this hodgepodge outfit. If there’s a story behind this costume I can’t figure it out. She looks hot at least. I like her friend’s Spongebob costume.



Judd Apatow had on some White Sox gear and Leslie Mann was a roller girl.


Pregnant Molly Sims did crystal ball reader. Was she trying to make a cute parallel between her pregnancy and the crystal ball?


Nicole Richie and friends were Siegfried & Roy complete with tiger.

Happy Halloween from Siegfried & Roy 🐯🐯

Kate Hudson did a Wild West theme with some friends, which reminds me of WestWorld. I marathoned the first four shows this weekend and have found my replacement show for Walking Dead. Bonus: it’s on at the same time and doesn’t have commercials.

Wild West got us like 💃@jonastahlin #SeeYouOnTheOtherSide

And Jessica Alba and Kelly Sawyer did Patsy and Edina from AbFab! These outfits win the night.

  2. mbh12 says:

    Both ,Stranger Things and ABFAB for the Win. ROTFL.

  3. Nicole says:

    Love the AbFab and Kate’s group. I can’t bring myself to like anything Amy does at this point so pass.

  4. lannisterforever says:

    I think most of these outfits are pretty cute but mostly just want to say YAY YOU STARTED WATCHING WESTWORLD! I hope we’ll get at least a couple of posts/recaps in the vein of your TWD and GoT ones about it, it’s my favorite new show too.

    Amy Schumer looks even more like a Canbage Patch doll than usual. Can’t un-see

    • Esmom says:

      Lol, yes. Her boyfriend makes a good Eleven, though, he has the facial expression pretty much nailed.

      And yes, luckily Lucas was not as unique/memorable of a character or I’d guess they would have no problems with blackface.

    • DahliaDee says:

      OhMyGod, that is exactly what she looks like!!! Can’t unsee!!!

  6. Locke Lamora says:

    Are people really offended by Johnny’s costume? I mean, we had a war in our own country less than 25 years ago and no one would care about his costume. It seems a bit reaching to get offended at that.

    Also, Molly Simms’ costume is verging on a Romani type dress, so why isn’t that cultural appropriation?

    • MapleGirl says:

      I was about to ask the same thing. Why are Roma dresses okay? And even usin the G word?

      • Bubbles says:

        I thought the exact same thing about Molly’s outfit. If everyone else is going to be called out for their costumes then she should be as well. Fyi, I don’t see the big deal with any of these costumes. I think people are being far too sensitive about it.

    • Mae says:

      Locke, I was taught cultural appropriation differently than people on this site, it seems. I was told that sacred symbols are not OK if there is a power imbalance, but that’s it. So, it would be OK to dress as Pocahontas (a historical figure), but not to wear the feather headdress, according to this interpretation. As far as I could tell, no one cared about any cultural appropriation towards the Romani, since those costumes went unquestioned. I dunno the answer, because it seems that even within a culture there are different voices on what people find offensive. Some people consider wearing a culture’s traditional garb cultural appropriation, while others sell their traditional clothes to tourists and gift them to their friends. Clearly the line between cultural appropriation and appreciation is different for different people.

    I thought about dressing up as Joyce from Stranger Things for Halloween. I don’t have bangs though and thought about it before it was too late to order a wig. I think the hair is very important to the character in that instance. I have seen some costumes people have done as the wall from Joyce’s house and they have been great. I find it interesting that Christmas tree lights are really a character in and of themselves in that show…. of these costumes, I thought Nicole Richie’s was really creative and pretty well done.

  8. Rice says:

    When I read Wild West Theme, I thought some idiot would come dressed as a Native American. Thank goodness that didn’t happen. Or did it and we didn’t get those pics?

  9. Patricia says:

    OK maybe I’m quick to hop on the “offended” band wagon, but can Amy please NOT mock the speech disorder of a child? Of a very brave child who has earned all of our respect? Ugh maybe I’m just feeling this way because it’s Amy and her very face offends at this point

  10. Adrien says:

    Amy can recycle that costume next year and come as John C. Reilly.

  11. Oatmeal says:

    Im so tired of this unfunny potato faced gherkin

    Can’t wait til she is no longer a thing

    • Cherrypie says:

      Yeah cause I’m sure you have such a well proportioned face

      This is bullying, I hope it makes you feel better darling

  12. Steph says:

    Suki looks like an Olsen twin.

  13. NinaNeon says:

    So you are complementing Amy for not doing blackface – sure, but instead she is cripping up. That’s hardly any better

  14. QQ says:

    LMMFAO at Nicole Richie… Guys please cover Teyana , she really did a GREAT costume with skits and all!!

    F*ck Amy (sorry this is my Default for her now) No Particular reason her face gives me sour milk vibes

    Also TOLD YA! Westworld Is Superior and Creepy and Interesting!! about to re-watch last night’s

  15. Anilehcim says:

    Jessica Alba and her best friend’s costumes are always awesome in my opinion. They did Slash and Axel Rose last year. Nicole Richie’s was awesome, too!

    The costumes that I saw the most this year were Strange Things related… I went bar hopping this weekend and I can’t even count how many people were dressed up as the cast. It was a really popular costume, at least in NYC. I saw so many men dressed as Eleven especially.

  16. PaschaP says:

    Amy Schumer legit looks like a Cabbage Patch Kid.

  17. Rhiley says:

    I thought Kate Hudson was Kim Zolsiak.

  18. jerkface says:

    WHEELS ON FIRE!!!! Excellent!

  19. jerkface says:

    Amy Schumer is OVER. Get used to doing shows at Mohegan Sun honey because you have reached your tipping point. Best to take Joan Rivers advice and be thankful for any gig you get because you may never reach these heights again.
