10 Best Halloween Costume Shops in New York City

I can't say Halloween is my favorite holiday. When I was little, my Mom actually made all my costumes and they were pretty cool. She had quite a knack for doing things like that. I never did well in Singer Sewing School, just wasn't my thing. I would be more happy to purchase something, but not a plastic get-up from some basic store. Something unique, cool and maybe even classy! In New York City, there are so many options and even the vintage shops are a great place to get some neat apparel and accessories. The Manhattan Vintage Show is held the end of October, great place for guys and gals to find some very cool costumes!!

In no particular order, here is my top 10 list :

Spirit Halloween 
Ricky's Halloween Pop Up 
Screaming Mimi's 
Abracadabra Superstore
Patricia Field 
Early Halloween 
Trash and Vaudeville
Frank Bee Costume
New York Costumes
Manhattan Vintage Show

What was your favorite costume as a child? Mine was a princess, of course! My Dad made my wand and crown with cardboard covered with tin foil. My parents were pretty crafty folks!!

Just catching up on your posts after my week away travelling. What a choice of costume shops! I had dance lessons as a child and we used to do annual shows - dressing up in the costumes was one of the highlights!

Some great ones for sure I love Abracadabra and Spirit Halloween are my top two choices. In third place it would be Rubies Costumes in Queens.

Hope you had a great weekend Ro!
