It’s officially October, and the Halloween season is in full swing. If you haven’t bought your costume already, don’t resign yourself to costume-less Halloween just yet. There’s still time to find Halloween costumes and get one in time for the big night! Here are a few tips to help you ensure you get that costume before this Halloween passes.

Start Shopping Right Now

If you want that costume in time, your procrastination has to stop—and we mean now! Putting off shopping for your costume is what got you into this position in the first place, so don’t make it any worse by waiting any longer. Whether you’re heading out to a nearby store or shopping online, you should start looking right away. For online shoppers, shipping times are a concern. But even if you’re planning to head to a costume store in town, you still shouldn’t procrastinate any longer; the closer it gets to Halloween, the fewer options there will be on the stores’ shelves!

Plan Out the Details

When you’re shopping at the last minute, you don’t have the luxury of forgetting an essential accessory for your costume and going out to find it later. You need to be organized and get everything you need for your costume at once. If you already know what you want to be, write down a list of everything you will need to pull it off—headbands, jewelry, shoes, tights, gloves, all the little details that will make your costume perfect. Now you’re ready to shop.

Pay Attention to Shipping

If you’re shopping online, look for the site’s shipping options and turnaround times right away. You don’t want to waste your time shopping on a site that’s going to take weeks to send out your costume, making you miss out on Halloween. Your best option is to look for same-day shipping. At RaveFix, almost all of our orders ship out the same day so that you can get your costume even faster.

Get the Faster Shipping Options

If you’re really in a pinch, pay for faster shipping to ensure you get your costume on time. While you might hate to pay more for shipping, this is by far the better option, and it can take a lot of stress off your shoulders, knowing that your costume will arrive before Halloween. It’s better to pay extra to use your costume than to buy a costume that you won’t even get to wear because it arrived too late.

Stick to Some Basics

The last-minute is not the best time to try to put together an extremely complicated Halloween costume. If you had your heart set on dressing up as a character with a very intricate look, it might be best to shelf that idea for next year. Finding a simpler costume with fewer necessary accessories will be quicker for a couple of reasons:

  1. You’re more likely to find what you need. A lot of places run out of costumes closer to Halloween, and if you’re looking for something very specific, you’ll be hard-pressed to find it.
  2. You won’t spend nearly as much time shopping. Getting all the little details right on a complicated costume takes a lot of time hunting down the perfect accessories. Save that costume for when you have the time to give it the attention it deserves, and stick to something basic this year.
  3. It might ship faster. A complicated costume with many pieces may require more packages, and those could take longer to ship. Something simple with a few accessories can usually be packed into one relatively small box and sent out quickly.
