Year-Round Halloween and Costume Stores in Texas
Find costume stores in the Lone Star State...all 12 months of the year!
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of fun Halloween costumes sent in by our readers. If you'll be celebrating Halloween in Texas this year (or need costumes at other times of the year, as well,) this page can help you find some good Halloween and costume stores to start your search. You may also check the Texas Seasonal Costume Stores page of this site for still more ideas on where to find costumes.
What type of costume store do you need?
Before you even reached this page, you already knew that Walmart sells costumes every Halloween time. For some reason, you wanted to try some OTHER places in your search for just the right disguise. Maybe you're looking for a better fit than packaged costumes can provide...or maybe you just don't want to "run into yourself" on the street trick-or-treating or at a Halloween party.
What kind of Halloween or costume store would you like to find? If you're looking for a costume in any other month besides September or October, you'll need to find a year-round costume shop. They're fairly few in number...but, yes, they're out there!
Every fall, you'll have still more choices. Party stores, discount stores...even pharmacies and supermarkets...create aisles filled with Halloween costumes and party supplies.
Also, large temporary Halloween Superstores appear, bringing a wide array of merchandise that's sometimes not available anywhere else but via large internet Halloween stores. Renting empty stores for only 2 months, visiting these temporary costume stores can be a way for you to find different merchandise from the rest of the crowd. If you're looking for a seasonal or temporary Halloween store in Texas, you'll find that information on the Texas Seasonal Costume Stores page of this site. On the rest of THIS page, you will discover where you can find costumes in Texas year-round.
Texas Year-round Costume Stores
Costume rentals and sales in Texas...all 12 months around the calendar
Year-round costume shops have several advantages over other types of stores.
1.) You can rent (or buy) costumes 12 months out of the year.
2.) If you rent, you'll probably be getting a high-quality costume that's lots better---and much different---than you'd get out of a package hanging at a discount store.
3.) You can find sizes that actually fit you; not just the standard "small, medium and large" like you'll find on a seasonal aisle or in a temporary Halloween store.
Below, you'll find a listing of Texas year-round costume stores. No, it's not a complete list, but it's a good place to start your hunt. All Halloween and costume stores in this directory must have a website, which helps you to know essential facts about these stores before you bother heading for your car and driving to a store.
