There’s no denying the love-hate relationship with Halloween – some people love a good jump scare while others prefer to leave the lights on at night. Whatever the preference may be, the highlight of Halloween is the dressing up for trick-or-treating! If you’re having trouble finding your costume this festive season, here are three stores you can check out.
Costumes ‘N’ Parties
Hailed as the first ever online costume rental portal in Southeast Asia, Costumes ‘N’ Parties have been in the industry for over 20 years. The Kuala Lumpur store was established back in September 1997 with some 300 costumes which has grown to over 30,000 pieces meanwhile – becoming one of KL’s largest costume stores. This comprehensive outlet has something for everyone with items for adult men and women, children, wigs and accessories too!
