Unleash your alter ego this Halloween with the perfect costume—and we know the right places to find it

It's spooky season, so here's a fun fact: Did you know that Halloween is widely believed to be originated from the ancient Celtic harvest festivals where people would light up bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts? As years passed, the spiritual and religious activities no longer remain, although dressing up in costumes is still a big part of the festivity.

As October 31 is right around the corner, we're not letting CMCO dampen the fun. With so many virtual celebration ideas online, you still can make the best out of it! Yet to get your costume sorted?
