Heads up: Halloween is officially 30 days away. If you're a longtime citizen of the Procrastination Nation, then finding a costume is at the bottom of your to-do list right now. But why not shock everyone this year and lock down your look weeks before the main event? (It sure beats sifting through picked-over props at random shops on the day-of, trust.) Lucky for you, LA is already packed with Halloween-specific spots and pop-ups to explore, and we have ten of the best mapped out for you here.
From sexy to spooky to downright offensive, these foolproof stores have something for everyone and are perfect for grab-and-go types that have better things to do than attempt a DIY project. (Crafty folks looking for retro inspo: there's a map for that.) Explore our top picks below, or dive into Spirit's full list of LA locations here if you need even more options.
