With the changing of the leaves and the arrival of fall with its crisp cool air comes one of our family’s favorite holidays. With two young daughters Halloween is a highly anticipated time of year in our home. They are excited not only to trick or treat for candy, but they love to pick out their own costume and be whatever they can imagine for the day. Their enthusiasm is contagious even my husband and I dress up when we take our family and their friends out for Halloween. In a city as big as Houston, Texas there are many places where you can find costumes. Here are my choices for the top 3 stores in Houston to buy Halloween costumes.
This popular party store has 13 convenient locations in the city of Houston and surrounding areas. Here you can find one close to you and get their hours and driving directions. Our family was so happy when they opened a location closer to our home, we get our children their Halloween costumes here every year. They have one of the best varieties of children’s costumes I have seen, they even have a large selection of adult costumes.
In their Halloween costume selections you will find ones for: infant, toddler, boy, girl, men, women, sexy ones, plus size, accessories and even group costumes. The baby and toddler costumes start as low as $12.99 and going up to $44.99. For babies and toddlers a few choices are: characters from Shrek, Toy Story, My Little Pony, Winnie The Pooh, Princesses, Animals, Elvis and even a woopee cushion.

Located on the east side of downtown Houston you will find the second on my list of the top stores in Houston to buy Halloween Costumes. Serving Houston for 58 years, you will find their enormous warehouse packed with everything you need for Halloween. Unlike many other stores they also carry rental costumes for Halloween. In their 20,000 square foot warehouse you will find a selection of over 57,000 rental costumes.
You will find costumes for all ages from infants, toddlers, children and teenagers. They have many popular favorites like: Supergirl, Superman, Buzz Lightyear, Santa Claus, Zorro, princesses and adorable animals for little babies. Not only do they have a ton of costumes you will find a wide selection of accessories like wigs, makeup and tiaras. One good tip is to look up directions before you go, it is a pretty nondescript warehouse, and be forewarned it can get warm inside in the Texas heat.
