Last Minute Scramble For Halloween Costumes

Frazetta's sold out of 'IT' costumes

EAST STROUDSBURG, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) - You may be getting together a last-minute look for Halloween. Fear not, there's still many costumes to chose from.

From frightening to funny, at Frazetta's Costumes in East Stroudsburg it's all about the tricks that have customers in for a treat.

"The decorations they have around, they scare you when you walk in!" says Britney Acevedo of Albrightsville.

"They're getting a little taste of not only a costume shop, but almost like a haunted house, too" says Bill Frazetta, owner of Frazetta's Costumes.

From makeup to masks, disguises and props, there's countless ways to transform your look.

Pop culture plays a huge roll. This year, costumes and masks for the spooky movie 'IT' are sold out.

"We've probably done four times the amount of clowns than normal," Frazetta explains.

Some old-school looks are also making a comeback, like the classic witch and devil.

Frazetta adds, "I mean, Wonder Woman started out great in the beginning, but she's slowed down a little bit."

Whether you're going for silly or scary in your quest for that 'spooktacular' costume, don't forget a new scare may be lurking around the corner!

"I used to be scared to go here, when I was younger, 'cuz all the decorations would jump out of nowhere!" says Tyrique Henderson of Kunkletown.

You may remember the terrifying 'killer clown hoax' that gripped America last year. From the Carolinas through New York, people dressed as clowns were seen lurking in the woods without any explanation.

Frazetta's says because of that scare, clown costumes were not such a hot sell last Halloween.
