This one's for the couples. Shock your friends this Halloween by going as one of Toronto's most talked about duos.


What You Need For Doug Ford

An overgrown crew cut hairstyle, a blue dress shirt (a reminder of why you love Toronto) and
a PETA pin (Ford's a vegetarian). Carry a sign that says, "Hortons, Not Dickens," "Who's Margaret Atwood?" "I Support Lingerie Football" or "I Heart Monorails."


What You Need For Margaret Atwood

Curly salt and pepper wig, pink scarf, 50 self-penned books, rapier wit, and 260,000 or so Twitter followers. Throughout the night, tweet fiercely about Ford, trade scathing looks, and generally campaign against each other. At the end of the night, reunite in comraderie for photo ops.
