Witches and ghouls, October 31 is coming sooner than you think!!! The time has almost come to eat a ridiculous amount of candy and flex on the ‘Gram in your painstakingly crafted costume. Wait, what’s that? You still don’t have one?! Allow me to help you figure out where to buy Halloween costumes online—before it’s too late.

I used to always find my costume via a trip to Party City or Spirit Halloween with my closest girlfriends. Now that I live in New York City, though, major retailers like this are few and far between. There are a few, but don’t even try stopping by in October unless you want to wait in a line of other New Yorkers desperate for a last-minute costume.

Another fast fashion site with an incredible costume lineup is bohoo.

Hot Topic

Hot Topic is another store I loved for as an angsty teen and now turn to exclusively for Halloween costumes. And damn, do they deliver! They’ve got tons of trendy straight and plus-size options to choose from, in addition to accessories, masks and “costume tees,” a great alternative when you can’t be bothered with a full look.

Spirit Halloween

Last but certainly not least is the iconic spooky destination, Spirit Halloween. You may be used to seeing the brand pop up in previously abandoned stores around autumn, but let me tell you — their online shop is just as fire. They’ve got all the classic costumes, from horror movie villains to fairytale princesses, as well as trendier pop culture picks like this Barbie-inspired get-up.
