Laura Wills, owner of Noho retro emporium Screaming Mimi's, has been having some Halloween fun in the vintage archives. Above, check out the costumes she's assembled from merchandise in the store, including a fierce Joan of Arc and a sexy-but-not-trashy Folies Bergère showgirl. Even the shop windows get into the holiday spirit. Inspired by London's historic dark side, they feature Jack the Ripper, a Victorian lady of ill repute, and Sherlock Holmes wearing a coat inspired by the current cape trend.
