The perfect Halloween fancy dress costume doesn't just appear magically from midair. It takes a little bit of thought and preparation to get your Halloween outfit right, so today, we're outlining the best fancy dress shop options for you in Peterborough.

Let this be a reminder to you. Whether you're shopping for an outfit for your child, or are attending a Halloween party of your own, don't leave this until the last minute. All the best costumes will be gone by then!

Following the recent "Mental Patient" debacle at ASDA and the subsequent unearthing of other inappropriately named fancy dress costumes at the big supermarkets, we've decided it would be a good idea to steer clear of supermarket options this year and are introducing you (or hopefully reminding you) of the best independents in our city.

Harlequin, Fancy Dress, Balloons and Party Products

Located on Fengate, Harlequin Fancy Dress has a stunning range of fancy dress options, rubber masks, theatrical make-up, wigs, hats and other costume accessories. They hold over 3,000 fancy dress hire costumes and have been in business for almost a quarter of a century.

They are also specialists in balloon decorations.

The Party Place

With a thriving online fancy dress shop, The Party Place's Peterborough headquarters and shop near Bretton Gate is the perfect place to pick up your Halloween costume. The 4,500 square foot costume shop is bound to have something that takes your fancy this Halloween.

The Party Shop Superstore

Self styled as Peterborough's premier party store, The Party Shop Superstore is located on Shrewsbury Avenue (formerly found on London Road). The shop rents and hires a vast range of Halloween costumes and other fancy dress outfits for all kinds of parties and functions. They also specialise in personalised items, balloon printing and sashes. 


To be perfectly honest, we're pretty spoilt for choice in Peterborough, but it's important that you get thinking in advance so that you can get your 2013 Halloween costume absolutely spot on.
