Looking for Halloween costumes for the kids? Here are all the rental shops and places to buy Halloween costumes for kids and adults, whether you are going for superhero costumes or the scary stuff!
It’s early to be planning Halloween costumes but if you want to order from abroad (Pottery Barn Kids has amazing Wonder Woman and superhero costumes), you’ll need to hop to it (and when you do use our vPost discount!). 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 costume there are a ton of costume rental shops in Singapore with literally thousands of costumes to choose from – superhero costumes, dinosaur costumes, or something scary like vampires and ghouls! 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 if you fancy making your own easy DIY Halloween costume – then you had better hightail it to Spotlight or Daiso before they get picked over (we spotted Halloween costumes already in Spotlight in August). Read on for Halloween costume ideas plus all the places to get your hands on them in Singapore!
