Start Planning Your Halloween – 4 Best Costume Shops in Phoenix


If you haven’t gotten started planning your costume, it’s not too late! But it’s definitely time to get that squared away. Head over to one of these shops in the Phoenix area to get some inspiration and find that perfect costume.

Mardi Gras Costume Shop

Take the short drive over to Scottsdale to check out this tricked-out costume shop. They have one of the region’s most extensive collections of imported masks including Venetian, Mardi Gras, and masquerade. It’s also the largest, year-round costume shop in operation in the entire state, so you know you will get the best service and selection possible. Check out their Halloween costume page to help you determine what kind of costume will work best for you and get a sneak peek at some of their offerings from Pirate Wench to the Mad Hatter.

Retro Ranch

Right here in Phoenix, you’ll find this little secondhand shop that carries clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, and more. Take a look through the clothes from earlier eras and put together your own original ensemble. How about cropped pants and a fitted, sleeveless blouse paired with the perfect manicure and flipped ends for a Betty Draper from “Mad Men” costume? Or perhaps you’ll stumble upon the ultimate white suit and black collared shirt, which would make for a classic John Travolta in “Saturday Night Fever.”

Spirit Halloween

With locations all over the Phoenix area, this will be the easiest errand on your list. Spirit Halloween specializes in Halloween costumes and décor, and everything in the store is sorted by theme, making it super easy to find what you want. Not only that, but they carry the accessories you need to really make your costume pop. You’ll find costume makeup, wigs, costume teeth and fangs, fake glasses, costume jewelry, and even weaponry and armor.

Party City

Looking for costumes for the whole group? Or how about a princess? Witch? Top Gun pilot? Circus strongman? Party City has a huge selection of simple, affordable costumes that are especially perfect for those last-minute selections. Just grab and go!
