Happy Halloween
Happy Halloween! Yes that's right, Halloween is tomorrow, October 31. So you had better have your costume ready. Some of the hot outfits you can expect to see on Halloween include Star Wars characters, those little yellow dudes from the movie Minions and Batman inspired get up. Some people are going really scary and dressing up as US presidential hopeful Donald Trump. There has been some controversy around the sale of one particular costume, a white one piece resembling the outfit Caitlyn Jenner, formally Bruce Jenner, wore on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine to publicly announce her change in gender. The Week just says if you are going to wear it, you better look half as good as Caitlyn did.

No Wookies on the Wall
Speaking of cool outfits, has there ever been a cooler set of armour than that worn by Star Wars baddies, Storm Troopers?
Earlier this week 500 Storm Troopers, could be seen standing in motionless formation on the Great Wall, we can only imagine what the people who originally built the Wall hundreds of years ago would have thought had they seen the scary statues. Probably something along the lines of, "uh oh, the Emperor strikes back".
The somewhat spooky sight was a promotion for Disney’s new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens which is set to hit cinema's in December.

The odd couple
If you want to get really topical for your halloween costume this year, what about dressing up as newly minted couple, Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch, now that's scary. In what would have to be one of the most unusual matchings ever made, Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has been revealed to be dating Texan model Jerry Hall. Murdoch, who is 84 years old, presides over one of the largest and most conservative media empires in the world. Hall who is 59, is most famous for formally being married Mick Jagger, the lead singer of the Rolling Stones. Hall seems to have a bit of a thing for rock stars and millionaires, and while Murdoch is definitely a millionaire, he is to rock 'n' roll what dry land is to a fish. Surely you can to better Jerry!?
