Halloween Costume suggestions and events

Halloween is creeping upon us very fast now & if you haven’t gotten your costumes ready, or you are wondering where you can go to enjoy the spooky spectacle we can help you here!

Halloween Costumes for sale
There are plenty of places you can look to find great Halloween costumes and the very best for us  is DRESSEW. This fabric shop has all the fabric you can find and it is always a great place to find a fun adult costume for parties and is has a massive selection for the Halloween festivities.   It can get very very busy the closer you approach the 31st and we are guessing that the weekend of the 27th and 28th, plus the 30th will have very very long line ups so get there early!
They are extending their business hours as we type so you can get there any time between the hours of 9am till 6.30pm…not only do they have great costumes but if you need any kind of fabric supllies they will have it, anything from accessories to fabrics & trim to DIY.
Value Village in East Vancouver, Hastings St & Commercial Drive
This is by far one of the largest secondhand thrift stores in Vancouver and has no shortage of great supplies for the Halloween season and in fact you can get some amazing bargains here if you keep looking long enough there will be a diamond hidden in the rough and all at an incredible low cost.  While you are out and about in East Van you should check out the Commercial Drive neighbourhood, it is full of cool shops, bars and cafes and certainly has quite the bohemian feel to it, at anytime of year you will see someone in a kind of costume gear because why the hell not!!!!

Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tour

This store begins at the famous popular bar called The Irish Heather at 210 Carrall Street in the heart of Vancouvers oldest district that is Gastown. Haunted Vancouver Trolley Tours transform Vancouver into an eerie place of shadows and murderous stories.  Tour stops include A walk through the mountain View Cemetery where many troubled spirits lie. A visit to the Vancouver Police Museum – this is where Vancouvers first city Morgue is located and there maybe a chance and autopsy is going to be in progress.  The tour finishes with the NEW Dreamscape haunted virtual reality experience.
