This Halloween's costume scene
So what’s new on the costume scene for this Halloween? If you’re an entertainment junkie, plenty. ”People don’t want to buy witches and devils anymore,” says Jack Bhasin, owner of L.A.’s costume shop the Halloween Club. ”They’d rather buy movie-related or licensed product.” And even though Bill Clinton masks may be the most sought-after disguise this year, there are plenty of other stylin’ costumes.
