Not that we don't play dress up all year round, but the gays have a special love for Halloween. And given that it's on a Friday this year, we're going all out. Here to help us with our outfits is Screaming Mimi's, NYC's famed vintage store, which has amassed a huge collection of costumes to guarantee we look our best come October 31st. Their NYC store is located at 382 Lafayette street, but for all you out-of-towners, their online boutique is also well stocked. Happy haunting! [Screaming Mimi's]
