It’s not that long until you’ll get diminutive witches, ghosts and goblins knocking on your door and giving you the choice between tricks or treats. And your children are bound to want to get into the fun, so it’s time to start planning this year’s Halloween costumes. And don’t forget costumes for bigger people, too – there’s always at least one party to go to that requires you to come in fancy dress.

Well, you’ve come to the right place – shopping online via Shop Canada 24/7 is a great way to get this year’s Halloween costumes for a number of reasons. And, of course, like every other merchant we deal with, the suppliers we’re linked with are guaranteed to ship any order anywhere in Canada – directly to your door!

Shopping online is usually cheaper than buying from a bricks-and-mortar store, and that’s as true for buying Halloween costumes as it is for buying anything else. Let’s face it: if you want a really good costume, you have to be prepared to pay a reasonable price for it, so it’s always wise to look for the best deals possible.

But what if you’ve got no idea what costume to choose for this year’s Halloween costumes? Well, for a start, you can ask your kids to come shopping online with you (it’s so much easier to shop with children when you shop online) or just ask them what the hot costumes for this year are – or their favourites. Once you’ve got this sorted out, it’s time to start browsing the catalogues to find the sort of costume they’ve told you about. And you’re bound to find exactly what you want – there’s no danger of missing out on the perfect costume or not being able to find the latest Tinkerbell or Avengers costume in a physical store near you. And size isn’t an issue – all our merchants really do have costumes for all ages and all sizes – yes, even plus sizes.

If you and your children are stumped for ideas, then just go ahead and have a browse – all of the merchants we deal with have an absolutely massive range of costumes for sale, and you’ll be staggered at what’s available. The catalogues will certainly get your creative juices flowing – and don’t forget to look at the accessories.

One great thing about shopping online for Halloween costumes is that they are available year round, meaning that you can shop early for costumes rather than waiting for just a couple of weeks before the big day when the costumes start going on display in the physical stores. Shopping early means that you’re much more likely to be able to take advantage of free shipping deals. However, if you do leave it until the last minute (like a lot of us do!) then do not despair: most merchants have a super-speedy option to help get the costumes to your door in time.

Fancy dress and costumes aren’t just for Halloween, and the great range you can see in the online catalogues are available year round. This is great if there’s a fancy dress party on the calendar or if you’ve got to come up with a costume for a school drama – why spend hours with the sewing machine when you can buy a great costume online?
