New York Costumes | Halloween Adventure



They sell pet costumes too!

The favorite Halloween costume store for many in Manhattan! Great 2-floors store with a huge Halloween selection of costumes, masks & props. You’ll also find wigs, lighting, makeup and more! Well organized store.

If you’re looking for goth or steampunk accessories, head to Gothic Renaissance that’s right next to this store!

Location: 104 4th Ave. between E 11th & E 12th Sts.


Abracadabra Halloween Costume Store



Great store with plenty of Halloween costumes & decor! You’ll find cool Halloween masks, capes, props, wigs and cool Halloween makeup. They can create wigs made-to-order 😉 Great collection and variety.

You can also rent costumes but it’s expensive though…

Location: 19 W 21st St. between 5th & 6th Ave.


Frankie Steinz



By appointment only!

High-end costume store with high quality and high prices! You need to make your custom-order WEEKS IN ADVANCE! Even if you purchase online through their website so keep this in mind! You can rent costumes or create one made-to-order.

Location: 580 Broadway between Prince & W Houston Sts.


Spirit Halloween



Okay… so this is not the best Halloween costume store. It’s a seasonal chain store. A small pop up store with not a big variety of Halloween costumes. But it could work if you live in the area or you’re just walking nearby and need to buy your halloween costume 😉


  • TRIBECA: 375 Broadway & White St.
  • FIDI: 65 Broadway between Exchange Pl & Wall St.
  • They have more locations in Manhattan. Check their website!

Hi there :) I'm Jess and I came to NYC to pursue my dream and I feel I'm living it every day. New York is magical and you have to be open to everything because you never know who is sitting next to you on the subway or behind you in the line of the supermarket. I decided to create this blog about NYC because I realized how many powerful tips would have helped me if I knew them before coming to the city from someone who was living in NY! So I thought that it would be awesome to share with you some tips about New York from a New Yorker. I'm going to keep updating this blog so stay tuned :)
