If you’re going sexy with your outfit this year, Fancy Spandex at the Watergate Pavillion has a lot of form fitting options, from your hot Wonder Woman to fitting spandex to form the base of a more creative costume to zentai suits. It’s a fine line between fashion and fetish.

Fancy Story

A shophouse with a big selection, Fancy Story has your usual costume selection—your superheroes and princesses—in a compact location where you can mix and match. Maybe a nurse pirate is for you this year? Buy or rent—and don’t forget the Insta.

Krung Thong Plaza

You won’t find ghosts, ghouls, or fake blood here, but you will see a lot of Gatsby-style sequin costumes, OTT Little Bo Peep retro dresses, and 80s and 90s mix-and-match costumes. While not a traditional costume shop, this is a great place to shop for a costume, particularly for plus-sized outfits.
