Costume dress-up parties have always been popular with both kids and adults!! These parties are usually awesome and tons of fun, but searching for the perfect costume can somewhat become what of a nightmare, especially around Halloween time.
If you still have a lot of time to shop, I recommend checking out “Where to Buy Halloween Costumes: Part I – Online Stores“. If you need a costume ASAP, here is a list of stores and costume shops in Singapore that will help you get into disguise.
Here are a few tips to help you with your costume search:
- Start planning & shopping early.
- Call the store in advance to find out if they have stock before travelling all over town.
- Mix & Match. Different stores carry different items. Hunt around to piece together that perfect outfit.
- Rent a costume. Costume shops usually have a great selection, but are a bit pricey.
- Buy online and ship to Singapore.
Singapore Retail Stores
Here is a list of some of the retail stores that you can check out in Singapore that sell costumes –
Spotlight (Plaza Singapura): Spotlight sells a variety of costumes and Halloween supplies for both adults & kids.
Daiso (Plaza Singapura, Vivo City, Ion, and more): Starting at the beginning of September Daiso starts displaying all of their Halloween items. They have quite a few masks and accessories, including pumpkin buckets. You can easily mix & match to get that perfect costume. Best part is everything is only $2!
Super market / Grocery Stores (multiple locations): Cold Storage, Marketplace, Giant and many of the other supermarkets all carry some Halloween costume accessories. The stores that are catered more towards Expats, usually have a wider selection.
Baby Stores/Shops: Mothercare, Motherswork Baby, and many others usually have a small selection of kids costumes. It is worth checking out if you have a small child or baby.
Toys R Us (multiple locations): Toys R Us always carries costumes during Halloween, however the selection is quite limited and runs out fast. In addition to costumes, they also sell “role play” costumes year round, ranging from princess to firefighter.
