The expats in Chanakyapuri are dictating the dress code in the rest of Delhi as Chinese products (read: scary stuff) are entering local markets.
Kriti Creations (we went to the one in Khan Market), best known for selling Feng Shui bric-a-brac, has an impressive range of Halloween get-ups.
The ritual of trick-or-treat may not be common in our parts, but you might change your mind after browsing through the pile of, well, butchered arms and legs (Rs 300-400), eyeball-goggles with veins popping out (Rs 120), and skeleton costumes (Rs 1,200). Think Addams Family.
Here are some Halloween parties you could go to wearing these.
