If you grew up in North Vancouver, you’ve probably been to here but if you’re not from around these parts, you’re in for a real treat this Halloween.

Boo La La has been a North Vancouver Halloween go-to since the 1980s (formerly Carol’s Costume Corner for those who want to get nostalgic) and Lower Lonsdale has been their home for longer than most of us reading this have walked the planet. Located at 152 East 2nd (on the 2nd floor), you can find all sorts of Halloween treasures from wigs & fake teeth to full blown theatrical costumes. The walls are literally covered from floor to ceiling with everything you need to look the part and every customer gets to spend time with a costume stylist, making this the ultimate costume shopping experience.

Our top trending costumes for 2017 are Wonder Woman, Pennywise the Clown and Hugh Hefner & Playboy Bunny – Boo La La manager Erin.

We can hear what you’re all saying, “But what happens after Halloween is over? A business can’t simply sustain itself on one holiday a year?”.

Boo La La is open year round providing more than just Halloween knowledge. They rent Santa costumes during Christmas, Easter bunnies in Spring and they’re a popular spot for the music festival goers come high summer. Boom.

Oops! Wrong holiday! #boolalacostumes #boolala #halloween #northvancouver #costume #local #yvr #makeup #christmas #whatishappening

Fun fact: they also rent costumes to loads of tv & film companies around town (Arrow, Supernatural, Pirates of the Carribbean to name a few).  

So if you haven’t got your Halloween costume figured out yet (probably most of you reading this) or you just want to swing by for a looksee, you’re only steps away from a really interesting Lower Lonsdale staple.

Plus, their Halloween rental promotion is going on right now. Pay the 1 day price, and get the costume for the entire month of October (all costumes due back by Saturday, November 4th). Also, from November 1st – 4th, the entire retail section of the store will by 50% off.

Here are a few more of our favourites that we pulled off of their Instagram.

You’re welcome.
