Halloween costumes can be tricky, especially if you have a kid who likes to change his or her mind often, as many do. Those crafty parents who love to make costumes at home will have a ball running back and forth to the fabric and party store, converting a mermaid costume into a princess, or Dash Incredible into The Flash. Those who prefer to purchase a pre-made costume have the option of returning it so long as it is before the holiday and unopened with accompanying receipt (but check at the store, just to be sure!).

No matter if you choose to make or buy, you’ll probably need to make at least one stop at some of the following locations.

  • Danny’s Trix & Kix off of FM2920 in Spring is a costume and holiday super-store. This massive warehouse of all things Halloween has been around for over 40 years. They are open 7 days a week during the month of October, but remain open year-round for other holiday and event costume needs.
  • The Disney Store inside The Woodlands Mall carries character costumes that you might not find elsewhere. Accessories and decorations are sold here, too.
  • BOOtique Costumes is another year-round costume store that is a perfect spot to get your Halloween gear. Located off I-45 next to Main Event Entertainment, you’ll find all things Halloween here including costumes and decorations.
  • Pick up your costume next time you’re out grocery shopping at Costco. They carry a variety of sizes and even have adult costumes. Plus, you can get a giant bag of candy while you’re at it.
  • There are three Spirit Halloween stores in Spring. These super-stores pop up in late September and close down in early November. They’re perfect for finding a great deal, but they do not accept returns.
  • Party City is well-known as the go-to Halloween store. In fact, they make the majority of their annual revenue during the month of October! Check out their North location off of I-45 in Conroe.
  • Do-it-yourselfers will appreciate the selection at places like JoAnn Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and Fabrics and More. While these stores don’t sell pre-made costumes, you’ll find everything you need to make one, plus decorations and candy, too.
