Dressing up on Halloween always seems like a good idea, until it comes down to actually seeking out all the elements needed for a costume. Then it just feels like a chore. But there’s a way to participate without spending an hour and a half in line at the local Halloween store; pick up one of fall’s goth-inspired buys. From torn-to-shreds knits to scary-high combat boots, there’s actually a lot on shelves this season that’d be appropriate this weekend — especially if all you plan to do is catch a horror movie at your local theatre, or make a quick appearance at a friend’s house party. You’re going to have to shell out a bit more by going this route, sure, but you can rest easy knowing you’ll actually wear this stuff more than once. And by more than once, we mean all winter long. You just can’t say that about a $49.99 Slash wig.
