By Corinna Christman
For the Daily
Even though trick or treating
around the neighborhood is no
longer an option for most students,
there are always parties, dances and
plenty of other excuses to wear
something fun for Halloween.
But entering a costume store can
often make the decision of what to
wear difficult. Flooded with celebri-
tv masks, canes, various hats, wigs,
dresses, scarves, eyelashes and mil-
lions of other transforming acces-
sories, every idea becomes attractive.
Workers at Fantasy Attic, which
has recently moved to a new location
at 3010 Packard Road, have reached
a general consensus on the most pop-
ular costume this year: French maid.
One of the reasons for this is because
there is not a really big movie char-
acter this year. Other popular cos-
tumes included generic ideas like
flappers, genies, sleazy devils and a
lot of outfits featuring leather.
Fantasv Attic employee Shari
Johnson said, "The most rented cos-
tumes are Antony and Cleopatra, lei-
derhosen and costumes from 'The
Wizard of Oz' and 'Eyes Wide
The latter costume includes a sil-
ver mask with the long nose and long
velvet cape, modeled after Tom
Cruise's Cvrano de Bergerac in the
"It's a very sensuous costume, and
that's why people like it," Johnson
Other costumes that are being
modeled after popular movies or lit-
crature are Austin Powers and
Felicity Shagwell. David McNulty of
Retro Threads on Main Street said
that quite a few people are interested
in costumes from "Charlie's Angels"
as well, with the new movie coming
out starring Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu
and Drew Barrymore.

lowing the movie theme but breaking

Students can find a variety of cos-
tume ideas on Retro Threads'
shelves. The store has a huge assort-
ment of '70s, retro, '20s and swing
dance outfits. The store is jampacked
with suits, ties, hats, wigs, jewelry
and anything else to make a creative
costume, McNulty said.
"The store can do any decade or
character from the '20s to the '70s,"
McNulty said. "We even have colo-
nial type stuff and period things
too." The store also offers props for
those dressing as Hawaiian dancers
or as punks. Some of the most popu-
lar items purchased at Retro Threads
are used to accessorize pimp cos-
