Witches Night Out

Pioneer doesn't ever miss a chance to dress up, and if you're anything like us, then you've probably got a whole closet full of Halloween props and costumes that are often mismatched, missing pieces and may or may not work together. Every year, costume party invitations roll in and we scramble at the last minute to pull together a costume from our wild menage of accessories (red haired cat-witch anyone?).  Well, this year we have vowed to be prepared and are spending this weekend on the hunt around the hood for the best costume ever.

As Daddy Pioneer was driving along Danforth East this week he noticed the Halloween Clearance Outlet at 2208 Danforth, just a few blocks east of Woodbine, so we decided to pop our heads in to check it out. We discovered a ghoulishly great destination (with great discounts!) for anything Halloween - props, makeup, costumes, masks, etc. Although most of the costumes are of the adult, costume-in-a-bag sort, there is an enormous variety. So if you've ever dreamed of being a saucy Medieval wench, or a prehistoric caveman, this is your spot. Don't forget to check out the full display of disembodied heads - they will make any trick or treater scream with fright!

The outlet is right across the street from another treasure trove for costumes - Value Village (2119 Danforth)! If you're looking for kids or adult costumes, they have many - and they are so inexpensive, you can practically buy one for each Halloween party.

And if you have wheels, and you've ever wanted to explore (ie. evaluate other people's real estate) in that secret neighbourhood just past the Woodbine bridge on the north side of O'Connor, now is your chance. The Parkview Hills church Presteign Woodbine United is having a costume sale tomorrow (Saturday, Oct 13) from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. and apparently, this is not to be missed. The church is selling off ten years worth of dramatic costumes and props they've collected, but don't worry, they are not all biblical in nature. Kids and adults!
