Boston Daily Gets Ready for Halloween

1222889533Halloween is on a Friday this year. At long last, we can cut loose, secure in the knowledge we won’t have to do the walk of shame back to the office while sporting the remnants of our slutty honeybee costume and a hangover from various colorful libations.

This year, a hastily thrown-together Amy Winehouse costume simply isn’t going to cut it—you’ve got to do something truly original.

May we suggest airplane crash survivor?

Channel 5 reports that public safety officials and several hospitals in New Hampshire and Maine will be holding an emergency drill at Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth, NH on Saturday. Yes, you’ll have to be there at 6 a.m., but you’ll probably get some cool bandages and coaching on how to simulate the injuries you’d sustain in an actual crash that will come in handy on Halloween.

Failing that, you can check out some topical costume ideas and read our guide to shopping Dorothy’s Boutique in the latest issue of Boston magazine.

(On newsstands now! Yes, we’re shameless. Go buy one.)
