It’s Halloween, as if you and your wallet didn’t already know it. With all the candy, parties and fancy costuming for kids and adults alike - even cutting corners, rounding out the blue-tuxedo "Gangnam Style" outfit might have set you back a penny or two - Americans are expected to spend about $8 billion on the event.
Looking for a thrill, or some last-minute costume inspiration? We have you covered.
First, get a quick look at the ways people are pulling off costumes from this year’s Internet memes. Mitt Romney’s “binder full of women”? Check. The botched Ecco Homo fresco restoration in Italy? Impossible, you say? It can be done.
