Yes, today is Halloween, and no it’s not too late to get with the spirit of the occasion and don a costume– particularly if you stop by Costumes On Haight, the lower Haight Street staple specializing in costumes of all kinds (for sale and for rent), including many gorgeous vintage items, with options from Buffalo Bill to Bonnie and Clyde.
Need something easy and last-minute, but especially horrifying? Go the route of a head-to-toe scary and beastly Bigfoot-type creature with a ripped intestine accessory, or play it safe and pick up a scary clown mask. If your prerogative is more va-va-voom than creepy, the shop has a copious selection of wigs, pasties and sequined accessories.
Costumes on Haight is located at 735 Haight Street and is open 11 am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday, and 12 pm to 6 pm on Sunday.
