Pumpkin patches are hopping, which means it’s time to get the kids outfitted for trick-or-treating. Whether you’re looking for creepy or cute, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for at one of our favourite Halloween costume shops:

Party Bazaar
A visit to this iconic party and costume store is a must on your quest for the perfect family costume. Every fall, Party Bazaar transforms into The Flying Witch, a Halloween superstore brimming with costumes, accessories, creepy decorations and party supplies. You can buy online but going in-person is way more fun!

Just imagine
Stocking children’s tickle trunks with capes, angel wings and costumes is the year-round aim of this family-friendly dress-up store. But it’s also a perfect place to get set for the ghoulish season. Their Kits location specializes in family-friendly costumes and sizes while their boutique location at The Kids Market on Granville Island is all about costumes for the little ones:

Old Navy
Heading to the mall? You can’t beat the selection and price at Old Navy. From cute strawberries and banana bunting bags, to fuzzy tigers and monkeys, these costumes are adorable and warm. In-store or online, their prices won’t empty the wallet with most outfits now on sale, ringing in at around $15:

More Madness Costumes
It’s hard to miss this indie costume shop the heart of the Fraser neighbourhood with its spooky windows and eerie atmosphere. Jam-packed with costumes for infants right up to adults, this neighbourhood mainstay has hundreds of costumes to choose from, and they’re all 20% off until Halloween:

Value Village
Value Village is the go-to for creative costume thrift lovers. With locations across the Lower Mainland, it’s a great place to find one-of-a-kind bits and bobs to make unique costumes for your kids. Easier still, you may just land that perfect hand-made or gently used zombie or batman costume. “V V” also carries new costumes from werewolves and superheroes to butterflies, witches and kitties as well as wigs, masks, and decorations:
