Whether you need a life-size, headless corpse or a pair of gauzy fairy wings, this bi-level shop may present you with more options than you’d first considered possible. Claiming to have the largest costume selection in the city, Halloween Adventure then backs that claim with a wildly creative spectrum of getups. There’s the tragically generic (French maids and devils ad infinitum), the relatively obscure (Emily the Strange), and in a few cases, the cornily conceptual (man-eating shark). Holiday wares never go out of season so you’re likely to see a rack of Santa beards in close proximity to a stack of Valentine’s Day hearts. The shop also has a random collection of old movie posters, quirky board games, and Led Zeppelin T-shirts.
