Last minute Halloween costume, decorations & other preparations

Monday, October 27th, 2014

With just a few short days to go for Halloween there is a good chance that some of us may be a little behind with the preparations. If you still need to find a cool and scary costume or need some trinkets for this ghoulish festival we will show you where to go in time for this Friday October 31st.

Dressew – Fabrics, sewing & other clothing materials
337 W Hastings Street
Vancouver, BC V6B 1H6
Phone number (604) 682-6196

This store is incredible if you are looking for clothing materials and fabrics – not only that it also has an extensive costume selection all year, however, once Halloween rolls in the costume selection certainly takes on a more sinister theme! We feel that this IS the daddy of all costume stores, it can get very very busy there, so do not be surprised if you encounter a line up at store – it is popular for a reason and it will be well worth the wait as you will be sure to find an awesome costume and some funky and scary trinkets to accompany your gear.
