When it’s time to start shopping for costumes for the wee ghouls and goblins in our lives, these are our go-to Halloween costume shops in Toronto.

Dance moms and dads may know Malabar for its extensive line of dancewear, but around Halloween they’re a Halloween emporium, with retail costumes and rentals. For young kids, the selection of costumes is small (they specialize in adult costumes), but if you’re looking for professional-production-quality wigs, stage makeup, and masks, it’s worth a stop.
14 McCaul St., Toronto
Want to wow everyone with your kids’ costumes (or your own) this year? Theatrix is the place. It supplies costumes for professional stage productions, and has thousands of costumes and pieces that can be rented to individuals. You can even have your own professional-quality costume custom designed for you—for a price, and with enough advance notice. Open to the public in October; by appointment only at other times.
61 Elm Grove Ave., Toronto
It’s best known for its party supplies—and you will find loads of Halloween party decor here—but Party City also stocks kids’ costumes and accessories both in store and online. In particular, it’s a good choice for the current “it” character costumes, like Pikachu, Lego Batman, and (2017 movie version) Wonder Woman. The only downside? There are no locations downtown.
