Halloween 2018 falls on a Wednesday, October 31 this year. Like every year it’s better to get candy for trick-or-treaters and have your kids Halloween costume ready in advance, instead of waiting until the last minute.
I have created this Halloween costume guide for you so you will be ready on time this year.
Question to ask before you buy Halloween costume
1. Ask your kids if they have a favourite or preferred costume this year. You don’t want to prepare a costume that your kid won’t want to wear.
It will be easier if your LO’ is younger than 2 years old- since you will be the one to choose their costume.
2. Do you plan to buy a Halloween costume? Or to make a Halloween costume from scratch.
If you prefer to be creative and DIY a Halloween costume this year – Pinterest is definitely the best place to start your search. Start with my Halloween Board here.
3. Do you plan to spend some time outside with your kids this Halloween for Trick or Treating? If you do, choose a Halloween costume that your kids can wear with long sleeves and will still work fine with a jacket.
4. If you are planning to order a Halloween costume online, make sure you measure your kid’s size and don’t go by the age only. Everyone listing should have a size guide to help you choose.
5. What about a Family Halloween costume? It looks great and creates lasting family memories (and some great photos).
Stores in Toronto and the GTA where you can buy a Halloween costume
Walmart has Halloween costumes for all ages and a good selection online. Prices range from $15 to $80.
The only issue with Walmart is that they run out of stock pretty fast and they don’t restock it. So you need to hurry or you’ll miss out on the best costumes.
2. Party City
Party city has Halloween costumes for $40 and up. They have costumes for children and adults alike. They don’t have many stores in the city, but if you live nearby, it’s worth a visit
3. Value Village
Value Village has an amazing variety of exclusive & licensed brand new Halloween costumes for kids and adults. The price range is $14 to $40. You can also find many second hand Halloween costumes and a lot of DIY ideas in the store. The cherry on top is that your money will also go toward a good cause.
4. Carters Oshkosh

5. H&M kids
H&M has generic Halloween costumes for Babies up to 4 years old for $30 and up.
