Last Minute Costume Ideas: Halloween Shopping in Vancouver WA

We are so excited for Halloween! It’s going to be a full blue moon on a Saturday, and it doesn’t get much more magical than that! There aren’t any big Halloween parties happening around town this year, but you can still dress up for your own Halloweekend celebrations at home. Whether you're having a party of one or your quarantine squad is joining you, dressing up this year is easy with all these great costume shops and thrift stores nearby. Read on for a quick list of the best costume shopping in Vancouver.


Spirit Halloween 


Just 15 minutes from our apartments is Spirit Halloween. You can't go wrong here! This place is your one-stop-shop for all things spooky. They have everything: costumes, wigs, makeup, face paint, fake blood, fake teeth, props, and decorations if you want to pick up a little spooky something for the home. 


Party City


About 5 minutes away is Party City! From accessories to makeup to full-on costumes, they are here to meet all your costume needs. Be a kid from Stranger Things, a sexy pirate, a Ghost Buster, they’ve got so many options available! Visit their website to see what’s still available at the Chkalov location.

Target is a great choice for low-key costumes! There's one about 5 minutes away on Mill Plain and they've got costumes for all ages there too. Plus they have the cutest Halloween decor and you can buy last-minute candy while you’re at it! Definitely stop by, you'll never regret a trip to Target. 

Thrift Stores
When in doubt, DIY a costume with vintage and thrifty finds from nearby thrift stores. Perfect for the sustainable shopper, or someone looking to recreate obscure characters from movies! There's a Goodwill less than 10 minutes away.


Whatever you end up doing for Halloween, share your Halloween #OOTD with us on social media! We'd love to see what you put together. As always, come back next week for more food, fun, and shopping in Vancouver, Washington.
