Well, hallowe'en is just around the corner and for some reason its become almost a big a black hole of spending as Christmas [ in some parts, anyweay ] According to the the National Retail Council [ U.S ] Americans can expect to fork out $ 3.2 Billion to ' scare' the beejeezus out of the tykes at the door and to go stupid at adult parties around the town... Used to be you hung a sheet over your head and hoped the holes lined up right.. now you can log onto: http://www.extremehalloween.com and fork over $ 797.95 US for the " Collectors' Episode III Darth Vader costume complete with ' realistic' Darth breathing sounds and an ' authentic moulded codpiece ' [ perfect to a comfy fit for your lightsabre, no doubt ] The other top costumes for the season are: Batman [ must be that codpiece thing ] The Fantastic Four [ how the hell do you dress up as the Invisible Girl ?] Harry Potter, and [ wtf?] Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz [ a must thing for a ' certain ' segment of the population, possibly? ] So... I got to ask Who are you going as?? Will we see any kids slapping a towel on their heads and trick or treating as Osama?
