Halloween is on Thursday, October 31, 2019! Do you already have plans? You can find a full line-up of Tucson Halloween Events elsewhere on our site.
Below you will find ideas about where to go in Tucson to find costumes for your kids (and yourself!). We especially encourage you to shop local and support small businesses in our community.
Little Birds bills itself as "Tucson's cutest resale boutique." The buy-sell-trade retail store features gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, strollers, baby carriers, cloth diapers, and more for newborn up to age 8. They typically have a plentiful supply of costumes in the months leading up to Halloween - especially for babies + toddlers! Most costumes are between $5 and $10 (infant - 8 years) and accessories start at 99 cents.
InJoy Thrift Store is one of the biggest and cleanest thrift stores in Tucson. Located at Broadway & Pantano in East Tucson, this spacious store has costumes and accessories for both adults and children.
Mildred & Dildred is a charming local toy store in the La Encantada shopping center that specializes in high quality and educational gifts for children of all ages. While the costume options are limited at this small shop (princess dresses, fireman coats, tutus, superhero capes, and butterfly wings), they are sure to be imaginative and fun. Perfect for playing dress-up all yearlong!
Note: If you are looking for costumes by Little Adventures or Melissa & Doug, Mildred & Dildred favors those two brands and has a decent selection.
The Gaslight Costume Shoppe is a local, year-round costume shop filled to the brim with rental and purchase costumes along with professional makeup, high quality wigs, and accessories. Costumes range from Zelda and the Mario Brothers to 1920's flappers and gangsters (+ much more!). Costume pieces start as low as $10 with more extravagant rental costumes reaching up to $175. Find men's and women's clothing in size XS up through extended sizes. No children's costumes, but accessories can work for every age! There are four dressing rooms in the shop.
You may also want to peruse the aisles at these other local thrift stores.
If you don't find what you are looking for at any of the above options, you can also choose to shop at one of two Disney stores in Tucson.
Also - When all else fails, consider: Costco! Their costumes are already out for the season so you can browse the selection next time you shop.
