    With polyester cobwebs and black spiders dangling in windows across the city, it's pretty obvious that Halloween has crept up on us once again. And, as we find ourselves only weeks away from the hair-raising holiday, we are faced with a dreadful decision — what will our costumes be? No doubt, some of us embrace this fantasy-filled occasion and have been planning our wicked getups since last November. But, if your costume cauldron is looking a little sparse, this decision can be a harrowing one.
