Dixon Costumes
Everyone loves a good night of dress-up in South Florida. But sometimes, it’s even more fun to hit a party in a one-of-a-kind costume. Before you head to a big box store, you should hit up some of these stores that will make sure you have plenty of flash and flare to your perfect costume of choice.

If you’re looking for a costume for Halloween, this shop likely has it. However, make sure you go well before Halloween or you could end up waiting in a line around the block to get in the small building. They have masks, hats, and costumes for all ages. The service may be slow, but that’s only because it’s so popular and everyone in Miami wants in.

Recycled Blues, Inc.

1507 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, FL

More of a used and vintage consignment shop, the savvy Halloween shopper can hit up the Blues and find a virtual treasure trove of items that can easily be turned into a one-of-a-kind Halloween costume. It’s also a haven of jeans that many describe as a very well-laid out consignment shop.

Costume World

Costume World

950 South Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach, FL
(800) 423-7496
Dubbing itself “America’s Choice for Costumes,” Costume World in Deerfield Beach is another store full of theatrical and rental costumes. From a hat to a full-fledged Hellraiser outfit to a shagadelic Austin Powers, Costume World claims to have it. But, as is the case with all of the stores, the more elaborate the costume, the more you will have to pay.
