  • Central

This historical street is great for last-minute costumes when you need something there and then. It's filled with stalls selling everything and anything you could imagine. From the freakiest masks, colourful costumes and fun wigs, Pottinger Street has it all. Plus, the great thing about having all the stalls in a row is that you can take a look through all of the shops, as they sell similar things, so you can check prices and make sure you come away with some real steals!

TaoBao

As one of the world's biggest online stores, TaoBao sells pretty much everything in existence. So, it's a great place to shop for any fancy dress or costume your heart desires. It's also great if you don't have the time to go out and shop, and even better with the shockingly low prices! However, the shopping platform is only in Chinese, so you can either do your very best with Google Translate, or you can ask a good friend who can read Chinese very nicely to help you navigate.

If you love the art of cosplay and are planning on getting something a little more elaborate, this online store may be exactly what you have been searching for. It's the perfect website to find your favourite anime character, and its corresponding outfit or costume. They also offer custom made looks that can take a couple of months to make, so you can plan ahead.

Ladies' Market is probably one of Hong Kong’s most well-known street markets and it really does live up to its hype. You can find some really fun and interesting items to add flavour to your costume here, and it won't cost an arm and leg to put together a great look in quick time. We suggest going in the late afternoon or early evening when everything is set up and it is not so crowded!
