Although 28 days have now come and gone in the month of October, it's still hard to believe Halloween has finally arrived. For the most part, safe trick-or-treating events and Halloween-themed parties have been going on all month long, but for some DFW residents, the party is only just beginning. Given this year's Halloween happens to fall on a Friday, plenty of festivals, parties, and Halloween-inspired events are still ahead of us, but if you don't yet have a costume, it's going to be hard to really enjoy all the fun. So if you're in need of a last-minute costume and live in or around the Dallas-Fort Worth area, swing by any of these local costume shops and make this year's Halloween the best ever:
Costume World - Dallas
The name really does say it all. Open year round and known for its theatrical costumes, if you can't find something to wear here, it probably doesn't exist.

Costume and Dance World - Denton
Another store that's open all year long, Costume and Dance World offers over 5,000 costume for sale or rent, making it one of the largest costume stores in the area, and definitely worth the drive from any Dallas area suburb.
