Hey, did you wait until the day before Halloween to buy/cobble together a costume? Well, prepare to stand in line with the rest of the dawdlers. Just take a gander at the queue outside Halloween Adventure on Fourth Avenue and 11th Street. The store, supposedly home to the largest costume selection in the city, had two bouncers posted at the door and the man in the front of the line said he had been waiting 20 minutes in the cold to get in. But when you need a set of vampire teeth, you need a set of vampire teeth.
