If you've got everything you need to wear the perfect costume on Saturday night but your plan to double-stick tape it all together is falling apart, don't fret. Wolfbait & B-girls are offering costume assembly assistance today and tomorrow, where for a small fee they will sew items together, stitch things up and create whatever accessories you need out of the fabric you over ambitiously purchased a few weeks back. Bring in your materials and walk out with a costume anytime between 11am and 5pm—it may be cutting it close, but it beats making a "Disco Britney Spears" costume out of whatever's left at the Halloween store.
