1. Soul of Halloween With three locations across the city, this Halloween hot spot caters to wee babes (we love their Puss in Boots baby costume!), toddlers, kids and adults. The store is well stocked in original costumes and fun accessories like masks, wigs, fake noses and makeup. Look out for the nearly life-sized animatronic T. Rex and the community of zombies on display at various locations. Soul of Halloween is only open until Halloween, though, so be sure to get everything you need for the big night in-store or online.

2. Karries Kostumes & Dance Supplies This local shop loves helping customers dress up in fun and fabulous garb. In the biz for more than 30 years, the store has a massive inventory of costumes and accessories with 7,000 square feet of space. On the staff roster are makeup artists, seamstresses and costume gurus who are eager to help you find exactly what you want—and make you look amazing in it! Check out the adult and kids’ costumes, which include bananas, hot dogs, superheroes and literary characters like Harry Potter.

3. County Clothes-Line From September to October 31, this community-based second-hand shop stocks costumes of various sizes and designs. All costumes and accessories are donated, so the selection and quality vary. Check back often for the perfect costume, or get creative and design your own costume using various items in-store. Proceeds go to support local projects in Strathcona, Alberta.
