If you want to go all out there are some really elaborate fancy dress costumes available, but if you're looking for bargains there are always lots of simple and cheap options to be found. Check the supermarkets, including the budget Aldi and Lidl, but get in there quick as stock sells out fast.

Last year Lidl sold Halloween costumes for just £4.99 each from mid-October, and we're hoping for the same again in 2020. In 2019 the children's costumes included a vampire, skeleton, monster, pirate, witch, devil and more, and for under a fiver they were great value for money. They also sold Halloween costumes for dog for £4.99 each too! We'll let you know as soon as Lidl reveal their 2019 Halloween range. Watch this space...

Aldi Children's Halloween Costumes

Halloween costumes at Aldi

In 2019 Aldi offered some of the cheapest kids' Halloween costumes* by far, at just £4.99 each, and they went on sale at the beginning of October, so we're hoping for more of the same in 2020. We'll let you know as soon as this year's Halloween range at Aldi is revealed, so watch this space...

Where To Buy Halloween Costumes In The UK

Many major stores will sell fancy dress costumes for Halloween, including Asda*, Tesco* (in store only), Tu Clothing*, Morrisons*, as well as the budget supermarkets Aldi* and Lidl* closer to the date.

Bargain high street stores like Wilko*, Home Bargains* and B&M* are great for value costumes, and clothing stores like Matalan*and Peacocks* have plenty to add to the mix too.
