Halloween Costume Ideas For Barcelona

So if you’re planning on partying in Barcelona this Halloween, you’ve booked the Ghost Hunt, but you may or may not have had the forethought of packing a costume. If you didn’t, never fear…we’ve got your guide to fancy dress shopping in BCN. Here’s a little list of places around town where you can find your Halloween outfit.

Party Fiesta

Carrer del Pintor Fortuny, 6, Avinguda Diagonal, 555, Carrer del Consell de Cent, 343, Carrer de Potosí, 2, Carrer de Josep Pla, 31

This chain of stores reads a lot like a Party City for those of you familiar with the US retailer. It features reasonably priced goods ranging from standard costumes to party supplies. Check here for a one stop shop. You can pick up one of those all inclusive costume packages or just grab a few essentials like makeup or a wig if you’re feeling like a lazy, homemade Halloween outfit is in order (cat ears or vampire fangs…boom, instant costume.) Also a great place to stock up on party decorations and necessities should you ever be in need (a giant beer mug balloon is always a good idea.)

Menkes

Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 642

This one of a kind store is not for the faint of heart (or wallet). It features a variety of high quality costume options for theater, flamenco dance, and other specialty events, as well as tailoring services. If you have the resources to purchase here, you are guaranteed a well made and unique costume that will be sure to impress wherever you end up on Halloween (just try not to spill anything on your expensive garb…)

El Ingenio

Carrer d’en Rauric, 6

This store is worth a visit, even if you don’t plan on buying anything (inspo anyone?) It features a wide variety of artisan items ranging from costumes to puppets, magic supplies, toys, and Carnival masks. The prices range widely depending on what you’re interested in but it is definitely possible to find something unique and affordable to compliment your costume. Also, this store was founded in 1838 by a local family of sculptors so it boasts historic status.

El Relámpago

Carrer del Torrent de l’Olla, 130

If you’re in the Gracia area, this store offers a limited selection of costumes but tons of reasonably priced Halloween accessories as well as suggestions in the form of tutorials on their site (check here for a simplified version of how to do that painfully detailed sugar skull makeup you were thinking of trying this year.)

In need of an outfit idea? Costumes trending this year include: Pennywise from IT, Wonderwoman, and Rick Sanchez (kudos if you can convince your significant other or just a short friend to be Morty! Or better yet…check out our costume ideas for couples). Of course, you could always stick with the basic pirate-witch-vampire-animal variety of outfits but perhaps try giving them a Spanish flair with some sugar skull face paint (dat tutorial doe…we’re telling you!) If you really want to go balls deep into the Spanish spirit, try a matador or flamenco dancer outfit (for a super simple slutty matador…just wear the red cape…)

And for those keen to skip a costume altogether, buy a pack of Estrella and just walk around saying (in the best accent you can muster) fresh beer, water, cerveza, agua…just make sure to run whenever the policia come.
