Here are the best costume rental shops in Singapore for renting and buying Halloween and adult fancy dress costumes, and costumes for every other festive occasion
We aren’t really sure what Halloween will look like this year! Will trick-or-treating be allowed? Our fingers are crossed! If you are looking for a Halloween outfit there are a ton of costume rental shops in Singapore with literally thousands of costumes to choose from. With a little planning, both you and your kiddos can be styled for every occasion, be it a fancy dress party or traditional Halloween trick-or-treating – even if it’s just spent at home this year! Or fancy making your own outfit – then you had better hightail it to Spotlight or Daiso before they get picked over.
Buy or rent costumes online in Singapore
The October 2019 launch of a full Amazon.sg has been a game-changer, Halloween included! Whether you’re after candy, costumes or decorations, Amazon has it all in their dedicated Halloween store, with great prices and heaps of products suddenly available from the U.S.!

Quite possibly the biggest and most extensive costume house in Singapore, Customade Costume has thousands upon thousands of costumes to rent or buy. True to their name, they even make custom-made costumes for those who take their trick-or-treating super seriously!

The global hub for cute handmade goods is unsurprisingly chock full of lovely costumes, particularly for kiddos but you can find plenty of cosplay for grownups, too.
This online shop offers fairytale characters (yes, there is an extensive selection of Frozen costumes) and spooky Halloween ghouls to pop culture characters and more. Happy Costumes will definitely make little ones smile!
We have a feeling Halloween-themed face masks are going to be huge this year! The Mask Life has a cool skeleton face mask that’s perfect for a night of safe trick-or-treating. Plus, it’s reversible – so kids can wear the plain black side for the rest of the year when they’re not feeling spooky!
Unfortunately, My Mini-Me will be closing the costume section of their store but due to the closure, they’re letting go of preloved and new costumes for cheap! This would be a great time to support a local mama-owned business and stock up on costumes for yourself or the kiddos to use for years down the road.
