The chilly temperatures, fall foliage, and preponderance of autumnal festivals don’t just signal the start of PSL season — they also mean that Halloween is right around the corner.

Here are three local shops in Derby City that will ensure you’re wearing the best costume at your upcoming spooky soiree.

👻 Caufield’s Novelty

A Louisville classic for costumes and oddities, Caufield’s has a history that goes back over 100 years. It’s not just costumes — you can also buy other party equipment, like a fog machine, to give your get-together that perfectly eerie ambiance. They’re open for extended hours ahead of Halloween.

👻 Nitty Gritty

You won’t find typical Halloween costumes here — like a ghost or vampire — but you will find a collection of vintage looks available for rent in this Highlands shop. Nitty Gritty also offers vintage clothing for saleif your everyday ‘fits need a final, old-school touch.

👻 Quartermaster Costume Rentals

Located in Butchertown, this shop has been in business since 1983. It’s open by appointment only, so give them a call and they’ll help you find a spine-chilling costume that will make a spectacle on All Hallows’ Eve.
