2019 Halloween Countdown Checklist

The countdown to Halloween is on with 9 days to go. And if you haven’t started planning, then we’ve put together a quick checklist to help you make the most of this spooky October day!


Naturally one of our favourite parts, the Halloween costumes! There are lots of great options to create your own costume by mix and matching things together (combine what you already have at home with some new key costume pieces) or buy a complete costume off the shelf. Sydney Costume Shop has a huge collection of Mens Halloween Costumes, Womens Halloween Costumes and Kids Halloween Costumes, as well as Halloween Accessories, Halloween Make Up, Special Effects, Contact Lenses, Weapons and more to complete your costume. You can view all our Halloween collections online or come and visit us in our Engadine store.


If you love to dress up, then you are likely to extend that fun to your whole house as well. Do you have the cobwebs draped? The spiders hatching? Or have the bats landed? By dressing up your house you are letting everyone know you are open for Halloween and welcoming the treaters. Haven’t finalised the decorations yet, then come in store or jump online and view our huge range of Halloween Decorations to spook up your house.

Trick or Treat Plan

With costumes and decorations sorted, have you planned out your treating? 

If you are staying at home to welcome the witches, zombies and vampires - then make sure the treats are ready! Have a big bowl or a welcoming sign, so treaters know they are welcome to come and knock on your door.

Or if you are planning on heading out, make sure you grab your pumpkin bucket to carry your treats. Also plan your route - look for houses that are dressed up inviting the treaters. Remember, not everyone loves Halloween, so make sure you are just as safe as you treat down the street.

We hope you have a super scary and fun Halloween!

And for any last minute Halloween needs remember you can view all our Halloween stock online or come and visit us in our Engadine store.
