Whether you’re preparing for Halloween or just want to spice up your everyday life, here are KL’s best costume and prop shops to give you some inspiration.

 

Costumes ‘N’ Parties

Shopping Fancy-dress Bukit Bintang

One of the oldest costume shops in Kuala Lumpur, Costumes ‘N’ Parties is still the best in the business. Their large, well-lit premises house their extensive range of costumes, as well as stage makeup and a broad selection of wigs, hats and accessories. You don’t even need to physically rifle through all the racks, with their laminated albums ready for you to flick through.

Costumes Empire

Shopping Fancy-dress KL City Centre

Wisma Central is a strange place to find yourself looking for a costume shop. It may be small, but it's a good one. There’s no obvious signage but you’ll see the mannequin outside the door, outfitted in whatever costume that strikes the staff’s fancy. Inside it’s bright and clean, with most of the costuming genres well represented: fairytales, Star Wars and a good selection of jewel-toned ‘retro’ clothes.

MOB PARTY LAB

Shopping Fancy-dress Petaling Street

Make a stop at MOB PARTY LAB (formerly M&K Party House) to source out kitschy knick-knacks and costimes – think Chinese opera masks, paper lanterns and skeleton models. Here’s a Time Out tip for all your Halloween needs: the store stocks horror props such as severed limbs and skull heads.

Century Fiesta

Shopping Fancy-dress Hartamas

With over 3,000 costumes available, Century Fiesta should be your choice if you don’t fancy heading into the city to pick out an outfit. We were impressed by their Lady Gaga section, which must be a good moneymaker, and their selection of different ethnic costumes, including Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, Brazilian and Korean.

Cantique Costume

Shopping Fancy-dress Ampang

Thinking of attending a costume party as a fairy tale couple or a superhero family? Cantique Costume has got that covered, offering movie, cartoon and anime characters in pairs and family sets. You can also find pirate and retro outfits as well as Arabian, Egyptian and Wild Wild West themes.

Abracadabra Costume Rental

Shopping Fancy-dress Puchong

The costume rental store offers 3,000 varieties of themed costumes, hats, wigs, masks, props and more available for rent. Fancy dresses aside, the shop also offers acting training and coaching, drama workshops, stage equipment and entertainment consultancy.

Costume World

Shopping Fancy-dress Bandar Utama

Costume World is all about variety. From period attire to animal costumes to superhero outfits, every category is decked out in several versions or styles to cater to various body shapes and personal preferences. So if you and your friends all want to be Cat Woman without wearing the exact same costume, it's possible.
