Best Costume Award: Fortune Costume

Ballet tutus, traditional Chinese robes, kids costumes and other goofy outfits, Fortune Costume has got it all. The shop offers rental costumes, particularly if you’re looking for a more elaborate stage look and a great selection of dancewear.

Shop online if TST is a too far out of the way (we know what you’re like, Island residents), though the shop itself offers a much larger selection.

With more than 2,000 costumes available – anything from a classic witch’s outfit to complete superhero costume – get ready to hunt down your favourite. Offering sizes from baby to XXL, there’s no shortage of wigs, face paint and other accessories either.

Last Minute Shopping: Pottinger Street

The iconic stone slabs street is a favourite amongst Central residents for a quick spot of last-minute costume shopping. Stalls selling costumes and props line both sides of the street, offering outrageous outfits and popular masks for any occasion. Hats, caps, wigs, feather boas – you name it, Pottinger Street has it all.

Visit all the different shops before picking the cheapest option. There’re plenty of party supplies available as well.

Halloween Makeup: Face Slap!

Okay, so it’s not a costume shop, but makeup is just as important for these sorts of occasions. This face and body painting outfit operates online and has teams in various Asian cities including Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Macau.

It offers face and full-body painting, allowing you to transform into characters like the Joker and other nightmarish creations, as well as get temporary tattoos and hair colouring. Book early for an early appointment and be the talk of the party. From $1,500.

Everything and Anything Halloween: Taobao Hong Kong

China’s biggest online retailer is the best place to find outrageous and obscure costumes at amazingly low prices. Taobao offers a wide variety of products – we’re talking hundreds of thousands – and provides deliveries within the week.

The only downside is the website is all in Chinese, so try to navigate your way through or beg a friend to help.

Happy haunting!
