Halloween in Paris

October 30th, 2014 No comments

Bonjour ! With Halloween tomorrow, I wanted to share some tips on where you may be able to buy or rent costumes in the Paris area.

Some costume shops (both physical and online) in Paris include:

Viva Fiesta

Sommier Gerard (site has links to other costume shops in Paris area)

Cotillon Moderne

Some more information can be found here:

-About.com has an interesting background on Halloween in France.

-The Local has a feature called “Eight Halloween events not to miss in Paris”

Enjoy !
