If Mean Girls is correct (and we're inclined to think it is), Halloween is just an excuse to dress up in skimpy polyester costumes and play beer pong. Hmmm, that's not quite our thing. We’d much rather have photographs (and memories) we can look back on with pride. So naturally, style is number one on the agenda when it comes to planning the perfect, creative get-up for this haunted holiday.
As usual, our fair city is bursting with offbeat celebrations that provide us with plenty of opportunities to dress up.
