CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Spooky Season is upon us, and Halloween is right around the corner.
Boston Costume in Cambridge is doing a roaring trade. Binky, who works at the store, told WBZ NewsRadio's Kim Tunnicliffe (@KimWBZ) that the classics like angel wings, devil horns, and witch hats are flying off the shelves.
Game of Thrones and Star Wars costumes are also always big.
Maddie is trying to put a twist on a classic:
"I'm gonna do pirate, and then carry around DVDs and be pirated DVDs," she said. Another costume shopper, Mo from South Boston, is going as Adam Sandler, who has had a lot of "iconic" looks recently.
"I'm copying one of his outfits that's basically a huge t-shirt and shorts," she said.
