If you’re new to the city you might be wondering where to find a Halloween costume shop in Paris this October. Or a fancy dress generic cialis shop as it’s referred to by my British friends.
On the downside, Halloween is not a popular event here; you’ll be disappointed by the lack of trick or treating for the kids, unless you’re in a very international Anglo centric neighborhood. Of course you could always take them to Disneyland Paris where Mickey awaits with a special Halloween surprise.
On the upside, you can still find that many expats throw their own themed home parties and many party spots in Paris has adopted Halloween for the sake of having another event to celebrate.
Where to shop for Halloween costumes in central paris?
Over the years, I’ve bought my sons’ costume online, but have now found that there are many places for kids and adult costumes and party supplies in Paris. One of them very central located in the Marais – A La Poupée Merveilleuse (across from The BHV Marais).
The store will seem small for American standards, but be sure to ask for what you don’t see as they only have 25% of their inventory on display. They are super friendly and open everyday except Sundays and Mondays.
Address: 9 rue du Temple , 75004 Paris
Metro: Hotel de Ville
Opening hours – 10am to 7pm. Break for lunch around noon.
Closed Sundays and Mondays.
Here are some photos from the store:
