    You can wear Joffrey this Halloween. Shoes not included.

    Wait. Don't succumb to the pressure and buy the Kate Gosselin wig for Halloween.

    Show some class and hold out for the first-ever Joffrey Ballet costume sale of more than 200 men's and women's outfits later this month.

    Plus-size ladies need not attend. But Christopher Clinton Conway, Joffrey's executive director, says they've still got a great mix of costumes.

    "Yes, the fitting for a traditional tutu is going to be a size 2 to 4," Conway told the Sun-Times. "But we also have a lot of capes and jackets that someone of any size could wear."

    Men, don't worry. Male dancers come in all shapes and sizes.

    "We have a good range of sizes in men's costumes," Conway told the paper. "It's rare to have a skinny male dancer. Most of our male dancers are big, brawny and tall."

    The sale begins October 28th with prices starting at $25. For information about the preview reception and silent auction, go to www.joffrey.org.
