Getting ready for Halloween offers an opportunity to let your creativity shine and become something out of your favorite fantasy, novel, or horror story – if only for one night. But having to stop at multiple stores to stock up on the costume and accessories that you need can take some of the fun out of preparing for a spooky celebration. To help, we’ve put together a list of four excellent shopping options in the Corpus Christi area so you don’t have to:
Just about any kind of pre-made costume you can think of is available at Halloween City in Corpus Christi, but popular options may go fast so it’s a good idea to call ahead of time and put a deposit down on a specific costume beforehand if you have your heart set on something particular. You can also mix-and-match costume pieces to come up with a unique recreation of your favorite television or movie character.
If you’re the artistic type, you might find that a place like Joann Fabrics holds the key to your ideal Halloween costume. You can pick up a pattern to help you sew a costume from scratch or purchase hats and other accessories to spruce up an old costume already hanging in your closet. At a large fabric store like this, you’ll have access to a wide range of arts-and-crafts that can be used to come up with a completely original concept for a costume that hasn’t already been thought of by others in your circle.
Goodwill is the perfect place to shop for a Halloween costume on a budget. Not only does the store tend to carry a selection of used costumes from years past for all ages, there are a myriad of accessories and clothing options available that can be pieced together to create an overall costume. Shoes, glasses, hats, scarves, robes, and pajamas all have great potential. Thrift store shopping can make it possible to outfit the whole family for Halloween without breaking the bank.
What’s great about Party City is that although the store carries a complete line of Halloween costumes and accessories around the holiday, it also features tons of accessories, party favors, and supplies that are designed to suit a variety of themes and events so you can grab your costume and prepare for a party all in one place. Need plastic champagne glasses for your bloody Mary cocktails? Looking for creepy eyeball streamers to hang in the living room? Want to decorate for fall without all the gore? Party City has you covered.
These are just a few of the great Halloween outlet options available in the area, but heading to any one of them from your Corpus Christi apartment should enable you to get your hands on exactly what you have in mind.
