They say that the early bird gets the worm, and the same is true for early bird shoppers. In the case of Halloween, the worm happens to be the pick of the best costumes, in all the sizes and colours you could want.

If there’s a specific costume that you or your kids are on the hunt for, it’s especially important to start looking as early as possible to avoid any potential disappointment when it’s sold out later in the season.

Whether it’s a movie or cartoon character, a top celebrity, or a classic spooky costume you’re after, shopping now guarantees that come Oct. 31, you’ll be ready to celebrate in style.

Have a look at our favourite Halloween stores below, and start browsing now to avoid the last-minute rush next month.
