Costume Stores’ Own Black Friday

That picture above?  One of this year’s hottest Halloween costumes, according Tony Bianchi of Halloween Adventure in Manhattan.

WFUV’s Kris Venezia went down to the shop just one week before the big holiday.  Other than Breaking Bad, Miley Cyrus and characters from Game of Thrones are hot costumes.  Depending on how opening weekend goes, maybe Bad Grandpa will be a popular last-minute option.
