Gwyneth Paltrow wins Halloween 2017 with ‘head in a box’ Seven costume

Oscar winning and Goop boss Gwyneth Paltrow is hardly known for taking the p*ss out of herself, but Halloween brought out the best in her it would appear.
Sharing a picture of her epic costume, Gwyneth decided to go as her ‘head in a box’ from thriller Seven.
In the 1995 movie, the Hollywood actress played the wife of a detective (Brad Pitt) who is beheaded by a serial killer (Kevin Spacey), with her head ending up in a box.
‘What’s in the box?’ is an infamous line from Pitt’s character as he demands his fellow detective, played by Morgan Freeman, to tell him.
She reprised the grisly scene for the spooky event, with Brad Falchuk standing in as Spacey’s character.
A hilarious image posted on Instagram shows Paltrow slumped in a bath with her head inside a cardboard box which has a ‘Fragile’ label on the side.
Falchuk sits with her in the tub, dressed in a prisoner’s orange jumpsuit.
Paltrow captioned the picture with a pumpkin emoji.

Severed Human Head Found Inside Box of ‘Sex Toys’ Woman Asked Friend to Hide
The remains of a severed human head have been discovered in a box in northern Spain, prompting the arrest of a woman in her 60s.
The woman, identified only as 61-year-old Carmen M. by local officers, was arrested on Saturday in the port town of Castro Urdiales. She allegedly gave the box to a friend for safe-keeping while police searched her home.
She was being investigated for the disappearance of her 67-year-old partner who has reportedly been missing since February. She asked the friend to keep the box in her possession until investigations had ceased.
According to a report in MailOnline, Carmen M. had told her friend the box contained only sex toys and had passed them onto her for fear of embarrassment, should police come across the box in their search.
While the box was in the friend’s possession, however, a putrid smell began to emerge and she was prompted to see what was inside. It was then that she discovered the severed human remains and reported the matter to police.
The arrest took place in the Mar Llana building in Padre Basabe street.
It was not immediately clear how long the box was in the friend’s possession. The unidentified woman was also treated for shock and panic attacks, local authorities confirmed.
A spokesman for the Spanish Civil Guard confirmed the arrest of a 61-year-old in relation to the case.
“A woman has been arrested following the discovery of a human head in a box at a property in Castro Urdiales,” he said.
“Another woman raised the alarm after opening the box and discovering what it contained inside.”
Although the identity of the person behind the remains has not been confirmed, local media reports have made strong links to the woman’s former partner. The Spanish publication La Voz de Galicia reported that the man originated from the Basque country, was retired and had been romantically linked to the woman for seven years.
The matter will now be taken forward by local courts in Castro Urdiales, a seaside town in Cantabria that lies on the Bay of Biscay, roughly an equal distance between Bilbao and Santander. It has a population of roughly 30,000 and relies on tourism and fishing as its main industries.

‘Girl In The Box’: Colleen Stan’s Story, Explained
It’s the warning given to every person who considers hitchhiking: You never know who will pick you up. Sure, most people finish their rides completely unscathed. But for some, their hitchhiking pursuits end in the ghastliest ways possible.
That’s exactly what happened to Colleen Stan, who, in May 1977, accepted a ride from a young couple on her way from California to a friend’s birthday party in Eugene, Oregon. What followed was a horrific seven year-ordeal, where Stan was raped, tortured, and often kept in a box for much of the day.
Stan tells her story in “Snapped Notorious: Girl In The Box,” an Oxygen special hosted by investigative reporter and former prosecutor Beth Karas, airing Saturday, July 17 at 9/8c on Oxygen. Here’s a deep dive into Stan’s escape and the evidence that eventually put Cameron Hooker, her kidnapper, away.
Colleen Stan’s Imprisonment
Colleen Stan was planning on attending a friend’s birthday party in Eugene, Oregon when she left her home in California in May 1977. The 20-year-old hitchhiked her way up the state, when she was picked up by a young couple with a baby. The child. made them seem like a safe option, Stan said, CBS News reported in 2009.
But then, the couple pulled over in a secluded wooded area and the man, Cameron Hooker, attacked Stan, placing a “head box” on her. Cameron had made the contraption, which weighed roughly 20 pounds, himself, according to “Snapped Notorious.” Stan was plunged into darkness and barely able to move with it on her head.
Stan was subjugated to years of torture, often spending 23 hours of the day in a tiny wooden coffin-like structure, often with the head box still on. She was given little food to eat, was repeatedly raped, whipped, electrocuted, and burned, and was left chained and dangling from a rack. Months into captivity, Cameron forced her to sign a contract agreeing to become his slave. She was thus referred to as K” by the couple, according to court documents.
There were periods of time during her captivity when Stan was allowed to move about the house, watching the couple’s children, and even working briefly as a maid at a hotel (although she had to turn her entire paycheck over to Cameron), according to court documents. In fact, about three and a half years into her captivity, Cameron even let her visit her family while he posed as her boyfriend.
Stan never attempted to flee and didn’t tell her loved ones what was happening because Cameron told her he had the backing of a mysterious organization called “the Company” which would go after her and her loved ones if she tried to resist or escape, CBS News reported.
“I learned I could go anywhere in my mind,” Stan told PEOPLE in 2016 of surviving the horrific ordeal. “You just remove yourself from the real situation going on and you go somewhere else. You go somewhere pleasant, around people you love. Whatever makes you happy.
Who Were The Hookers?
Cameron and Janice Hooker met in 1973, when Janice was just 16 years old. Within two years they were married, Chico News & Review reported in 2010.
Cameron, a lumber mill worker, enjoyed practicing bondage on Janice, but Janice wanted to end that element of their relationship and have children, according to court documents. The pair agreed Cameron could keep “a slave” to practice bondage on, and when Cameron was 19 and Janice was 23, they picked up Stan.
Janice, who eventually had two children with Cameron, would later testify that she lived in fear of him and was also a victim.
Did The Hookers Kidnap Another Girl?
Janice would also claim that Stan was not the first girl Cameron kidnapped. She claimed they kidnapped Marie Elizabeth Spannhake and murdered her.
Spannhake was 19 years old when she moved to Chico, California in December 1975 from Cleveland, Ohio to be with her boyfriend. Weeks later, on January 31, 1976, the young woman vanished during a shopping trip.
Spannhake’s family, her boyfriend, and police frantically searched for her. However, her body was never found.
Stan told “Snapped Notorious: Girl In The Box” that there was a photo of another woman, believed to be Spannhake, in one of the boxes she was kept in. It seemed to be a warning: There was another woman there first, and then she was gone.
According to Janice, Spannhake was held hostage by the couple after they offered her a ride while she was walking down the road. She was tortured by Cameron, who placed the head box on her and put her on a rack like he did to Stan. He even tried to sever her vocal cords, Janice claimed, Chico News & Review reported. He eventually shot her with a pellet gun in the stomach and strangled her, killing her.
Janice alleged they buried the body off a dirt road, but police were unable to ever find her remains.
Colleen Stan Finally Escapes
Stan’s escape came with the help of an unlikely ally: Janice.
“People don’t understand all the threats made against me, my family. There’s a lot more to it than just walking away. When you’re sexually abused, these things solidify the fact that if you don’t do what I say, I can take your life. I thought, ‘What if he catches me when I try to escape?’ It wasn’t like I never thought about these things. I did but I never felt safe to act out on them until his wife came to me and said, ‘We have to get out of here,'” Stan later said in an interview with CBS News.
Janice had confided in her minister, who advised her to leave and let Stan go, according to court documents. Janice then finally told Stan the truth: The Company was a lie. No one would go after her or her family if she escaped.
In August 1984, over seven years after she’d been kidnapped while hitchhiking, Stan went to a bus station and had her family wire her money for a ticket home. She then called Cameron and told him she was leaving and there was nothing he could do about it, according to court documents.
Janice asked Stan not to turn Cameron in, insisting she could rehabilitate him. Stan agreed, and tried to move on with her life and her family.
But Janice soon realized she could not fix Cameron, who she lived in fear of. After more counseling from her minister and a warning from her friend that Cameron could hurt the children in similar ways, Janice went to the authorities in November 1984 and turned Cameron in.
The Trial And The Aftermath
Cameron Hooker was hit with a slew of charges, including kidnapping, rape, sodomy, and more. Ultimately, authorities opted not to charge him in relation with Spannhake’s death, as they couldn’t find the body and didn’t have enough evidence. Janice, meanwhile, agreed to testify against her husband and was granted immunity.
At the trial in 1985, Cameron admitted to kidnapping Stan and keeping her in a box, but insisted the sex was consensual and pointed to the fact that Stan had never left, according to court documents. In response, the prosecution provided all sorts of physical evidence: the headbox, photographs of Stan in bondage, a copy of the slavery contract, the coffin-like box she was kept in, and more. Janice’s testimony and Stan’s testimony sealed the deal, and in November 1985 Cameron Hooker was sentenced to 104 years in prison, the New York Daily News reported in 2014. He remains there to this day.
Janice went back to her maiden name and now works as a social worker in California, according to the Chico News & Review. Stan does not keep in touch with Janice, “Snapped Notorious: Girl In The Box” noted.
Stan, meanwhile, has worked hard to put her past behind her. She is a mother now and has, she says, achieved some peace.
“Life today is good. You have to learn how to live in the now and not let that past drag you back,” she told producers.
For more on this case, watch “Snapped Notorious: Girl In The Box” on Saturday, July 17 at 9/8c on Oxygen.
I Keep Moving by Storing Little Boxes in My Head
I like to keep things organized. Everything should have a place, even if it’s on the floor next to my bed, like my clothes.
Even my problems have a place: Each one has a box. No, I don’t have a box sitting around in my house labeled “Huntington’s disease.” All of my issues live in boxes in my head. I’ve been doing this for about as long as I can remember.
I recently learned that I got this coping method from my mother. She had no idea it would stick.
The general concept that these boxes represent is compartmentalization, which is the process of “putting your emotions away” — like in a compartment — so that you can focus on other things. I will say that the word is well chosen, even if it’s nearly impossible for me to say.
This coping strategy is how I’ve managed to get through life. My philosophy has been that if I don’t think about my problems, I won’t have to deal with the emotions that come with them.
There are pros and cons to this practice. As a pro, I have no idea how I would have finished my senior year of college without this coping strategy, particularly after learning about my mother’s Huntington’s diagnosis. The emotions would have been too overwhelming to deal with all at once. Even after two years, these emotions still overwhelm me.
It’s also helpful during therapy, when I choose which boxes I want to open that day.
The main problem with compartmentalization is how I’ve chosen to use it for so long. Normally, we’re only supposed to keep things in a box for a short time, until we have the space to process them. Instead, I usually chose not to open them, meaning I have boxes that are far past their expiration date.
That’s not to say they were never opened, it just wasn’t my choice when it happened. Normally, they would be opened only if something triggered it, such as seeing something on TV about Huntington’s disease. (I did not expect the TV series “Revenge“ to introduce Huntington’s as a plotline.) The way this happened in practice was that one episode of a show could cause all of these feelings I had been ignoring to pour over me.
Granted, I became amazingly good at closing the boxes and putting them away, but the more boxes that were opened, or the more emotions that were in there, the harder it got to put them away. Think of it as a suitcase that is already overpacked, but instead of choosing what to take out, you just stuffed more into it.
Now that I have a therapist I like and trust, I can take boxes off the shelf and discuss them with someone. I don’t think I will ever get rid of this coping skill altogether, but I will use it more wisely.

MOSCOW, September 10 – RIA Novosti. An Argentine family received the missing grandfather’s skull by mail in a mayonnaise box, the Daily Star reported. The man left home on January 10 last year. According to the family of the deceased, the police sent a terrible package with the head after they found a part of the body in a garbage dump.

Head + box = almost space
01 August 2011
Recently, all passers-by were extremely surprised to see about a dozen young people putting on empty cardboard boxes.They were painted in different colors and looked like alien costumes. And in them, young people walked along the central streets of the city, flirting with passers-by. And all together it bore the name –
flash mob dedicated to astronautics.
A few hours before the costume procession, I also decided to take part in it. I am heading to the auditorium of the Youth Center, this is where the main part of the preparation began. The guard greets with a smile:
– Do you want to be in a box too?
But just wandering around the city in an ordinary cardboard box is not enough.You still have to come up with your own image. Boys cut holes for the head and arms. Some people want a helmet to complete the look. There is no limit for imagination, since there are a lot of empty boxes. I was also given one of them: white with burgundy inscriptions. I looked around and looked at other people’s costumes – all different colors and all of a character: in the corner lies Bender from the animated series Futurama, Superman, SpongeBob and others. I decided to make a black and white image. First of all, I painted over the inscription on the box. The result is a wide horizontal stripe.Then I remembered numerous religious strife, and it occurred to me to make drawings that would express social protest. The result was a black cross on a white box, in addition to black pants and dark sunglasses, it would be quite distinctive. I don’t know if the underlying idea was visible in this, but perhaps it fits the general space theme of the entire flash mob. The black cross could symbolize a reminder that not all astronauts returned alive after the flight. True, judging by the reaction of the rest of the participants, who were painting the boxes, this idea was hardly visible either.
Nearby, a miniature Anya Solovyova, who works at the Youth Center, is finishing up the Blondie’s costume – a helmet with pasted strips of cut colored paper. Anya laments that she will not have time to twist her curls. It turned out to be very long and laborious to glue strips of colored tape, and there is not enough yellow colored paper. And the main part of the costume has not been painted yet.
– Anya, how did you end up in
– There used to be a circle “Active”,
I participated in it, then I moved to work in the Youth
Center.Here we organize
many interesting activities.

from Vlad and Nikita:
– In your opinion, why this
– It’s fun. Not everyone can walk around the city in a box.
– And yet, what is it
– I don’t know.And you?
I shrug and walk with
this question to one of the organizers, Kirill Guyo:
– For us to support
youth. Flash mobs pass
Worldwide. They often
not only young people are involved, and

– But like SpongeBob, cartoon character and Blonde

anniversary of the flight of German Titov?
– And they are all cosmic.AND
SpongeBob, and Blonde, and Bender from Futurama … that’s all. Our
the event will be positive
and bright, will cheer up
to the townspeople.
Meanwhile, it turns out
that there are ready-made suits, but

I’m paired with Arthur. Talking about education:
– I want to study to be a philosopher, – he says, – but,
apparently, it will have to be an engineer.
A toast is involuntarily remembered
about desires and possibilities.
We approach the collection point.
There are already TV men standing here.
First, they take a short interview with Cyril Guyo, then they ask
anyone for comment.
One of the guys aside

I was not given. And I won’t.
But after a couple of minutes the first

watching him, standing in a row, like

Two more flash communists
give comments to television.
And the event will begin.
We go into the bushy trees behind the bench, there we put on
boxes and go out to Komsomolsky Boulevard. At first
just walk in a row, then someone
begins to repeat movements for

the same.Kirill guesses
sit in a suit on a bench to
an elderly woman. It turns out
pretty funny. Then this
becomes a corporate joke:
sits down with almost everyone
sitting in the park.
Some of the passers-by
ask what it is with us
is happening and who are we? At first
answered briefly: “Flashmob”,
then the directive came from the authorities not to talk to passers-by, but to answer: “We are from outer space.”
We walk in silence along Komsomolsky
We remove the boxes.Small break. Then we dress again and go to
