Spookers Halloween's costume area actually has dressing rooms. It might not sound like a big deal, but most costume shops don't, which means guessing if that sassy sailor costume will provide enough coverage to hide your fish-identification poster.
Spookers' customers can try on thousands of costumes in a range of sizes, and if they visit the Gulf Freeway store, customers can peruse more than 18,000 sq. ft. Kids can decide if they want to be a pirate, princess, or bumblebee when they hit the streets to go trick or treating. Grownups have even more choices.
First, they must decide if they'd rather be scary or sultry. Then they can try on costumes such as the Playboy bunny, mod girl, Old West sheriff, or Roman gladiator. The shop stays open until midnight on All Hallows Eve to ensure that latecomers can still get a costume in time to avoid going to a party as the sweaty late guy.
