A Very Phoenix Halloween: Dress Up or Get Out: The biggest costume parties in town

Fact: This guy will not be having sex tonight

Attention all Boston coeds: we'd like to issue an official statement. Squeezing into a 10-year-old's party skirt, teetering around on six-inch heels, and slapping some sort of animal headgear on your dome does not qualify as a costume. Maybe a particuarly festive streetwalker. We know, we know, Halloween is the one time of the year that it's cool to get all slutted up without fear of judgement (other than ours, of course) but if we see one more "sexy" bunny/mouse/aardvark (well, actually, that would be sort of cool) we're going to lose it. And while we know that shit might fly at a BU frat party (plus free admission and a guarantee to get laid) it ain't going to cut it at the costume parties we've rounded up. The same goes for the bros: if you're dressed as a giant mangina, an "official pussy inspector" or in any other costume referencing the female genitalia, you're on our hit list. Creativity is the word of the day, people, so get after it.
