If you’re still unsure which character you’d want to emulate this Halloween, trust, you’re not alone.
There are less than five days left for the world’s favourite dress-up day, a day to celebrate the spooky, ghoul and downright creepy ‘other’ side to this world. For some, it’s also a day to be excused out of judgement when you want to play a Disney part and wear that Tinkerbell outfit.
You do you.
If you’re lost on what to wear, heading to some of these awesome Dubai gems will help you find your Halloween ’19 look:
The new Souq is bound to have endless options, but you just have to make sure the seller will be close in proximity so you receive your order right before Halloween night itself.
Typing ‘Halloween’ on the site’s search bar means opening yourself up to limitless adult and childrens’ costumes at a lower cost than you’d get in stores.
Get on that!
Mommies and their kiddos need not look further- because a website dedicated to easing all mama’s lives here in the UAE have a Halloween costume section on their website with many options.
So whether mums and the little ones want to be showstoppers in vamp glam, akin to the Addams family or play Meet The Robinsons for a day- the sky is the limit. Best part is you can just get the costumes delivered to the comfort of your own home.
3. My Party Centre
Party Centre has a range of options available both in-store and online not just for the kiddos, but adults (men and women) too! Aside from fabulous birthday and themed-party supply items, the costumes vary depending on the age range, so much so you’ll end up woozy from having to decide.
A specific thing Party Centre has that’s not as easy to find elsewhere are couple costumes, so you and your bestie can finally dress up as matching adult bats. Because, you know, that’s Halloween.

This has to be everyone’s favourite go-to for all things Halloween-related in Dubai.
The entire store is divided into sections: cartoons, the Roman empire, Harry Potter, fairies, vampires and anything one can think up. Imaginations can come to life, because Mystique sells full-costume looks from head-to-toe. Although it’s a little on the pricier end, Halloween-goers can be creative and DIY a look, by walking the two-storey store and finding bits and pieces to use for a costume.
Props like handcuffs, fake swords, feather (a la Maleficent-feels), makeup (from ghoul to fake blood, fangs and whatnots)- the list is endless.
Mystique is open daily, with the Barsha branch’s timings from 9 am-11 pm, and Jumeirah’s between 9 am-11 pm.
Location(s): Jumeirah and Al Barsha
