Halloween is the one time of the year when it is legal to demand candy from strangers, play tricks on enemies, or wear hats in public. Prepare to defy convention with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Halloween costumes, accessories, and decorations at Party Mania, located in Bethesda, Maryland.
Party Mania's trunk-loads of Halloween costumes and gear equip trick-or-treaters and party-goers with suitably spooky garb. Costumes ($29.95+) envelop masqueraders in recognizable outfits ranging from Spider-Man's iconic get-up and makeshift mechanicals from Cars 2 to the Dracula costume like the one Richard Nixon wore on his first trip to China. Accessories such as a flashing ninja sword ($6.50) or a wig ($16.95–$37.95) add a finishing touch to minimalistic garb, and a CD of Halloween music ($9.95) beams forth an eerie soundtrack calibrated for pumpkin carving or tap dancing with jack-o'-lanterns. Like a simple jigsaw puzzle or a complicated scarf, a decorative lawn skeleton ($27.95) comes in five pieces.
