Spooky is the most neglected of the five basic human emotions: spooky, joy, sorrow, grouchy, and wet. Get horror glands pumping with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of chilling costumes, absurd accessories, and more at Costume Holiday House on Bethel Road in Columbus. This Groupon is only good for in-store purchases.
A vast storehouse of demented disguises and motley outfits, Costume Holiday House is Columbus’s dress-up depot, offering customers more than 10,000 costumes and accessories from which to choose. The racks and shelves contain everything from macabre masks to gruesomely garish makeup. Combine the latter with a clown afro wig ($5.99) and achieve the only Halloween costume that can simultaneously delight children and terrify small-business owners that are keen to clowns’ universal disdain for free-market capitalism. Newly walking tykes who appreciate the generously salted sustenance of popular legumes will go for the peanut costume ($14.99), and those who supported Kid 'n Play’s 1992 gubernatorial run can relive the campaign with a high-top fade wig ($19.99). You can also use the value of your Groupon toward the cost of costume rentals.
Costume Holiday House’s friendly, dedicated staff can help customers trade street clothes for the ideal nose, wig, or suit of pirate-themed identity armor. Open year round, Costume Holiday House provides garb for Halloween, theme parties, halfway-to-Mardi-Gras parties, and more.
Five Yelpers give Costume Holiday House a three-star average.
- Great selection, and the staff is usually pretty kind. I've only been here a few times, and like most around Halloween. Last year when I stopped in the girls were super helpful helping me try on the fancier costumes. – Sarah B.
- I have had great luck finding the most random things here and have a blast just browsing. – Heather A.
