If you and your friends are planning to celebrate Halloween; it is important to take note of the costs that come along with a night of spooktacular fun. Whether you want to trick or treat, costumes, food, and transportation can make your bank account scarier than ever.


In Singapore, there are various costume shops where you can get your freak on! Instead of buying a costume, you can rent it out for a day or even consider DIY. With Halloween only being celebrated for one day, you can afford to save and wear something that will not burn a hole in your pocket.

Renting a Halloween costume ranges from $20 to $100 per day, depending on what you want to get. Find out where the best costume shops in Singapore are!

Halloween Horror Nights 2018, Universal Studios

The New Savvy - Finance - Halloween

If you are looking for a good scream with your friends – you can visit Universal Studios Singapore (USS) where they have the annual Halloween Horror Nights from 27 October to 31 October.

Not only will you be able to scream your lungs off in iconic USS treats such as Battlestar Galactica but also the exclusive local-themed haunted houses, scare zones and shows that bring to life the subjects of many childhood nightmares. (Bonus treat: There is even a haunted house with Netflix’s Stranger Things theme!)

Tickets start at $58 for general admission per person.

Food and Drinks

Whether you decide to go to Halloween Horror Nights or simply just go around town walking in your costumes, you need sustenance. Buying food and non-alcoholic drinks for the night can approximately be $20 per person and $50 per person if you decide to go to USS.

If you are over 18 and decide that a little liquid courage is something that you might need for the night, this price can even double!

Going out means braving the swarm of people dressed in extravagant costumes. You can save a lot of money by taking the trusty Singapore bus & MRT services. However, if you’d rather not brave the swarm of people dressed in an extravagant costume, a cab’s fare is from $10. Split the bill with your friends so you would not have to cover the full damage!

In Summary…

Costumes $20
Halloween Horror Nights Tickets $58
Food & Drinks $20
Transportation $5
TOTAL $103


Therefore, spending your Halloween out can easily cost more than $100! If you’re thrifty, you can skip HHN and opt for a night in altogether instead.

You can just microwave some popcorn and have a little Halloween marathon featuring the scariest movies of all time! With the only price, you’d be paying for is the lack of sleep.
