So it’s that time of year, where everybody young and old is searching for the Halloween costume. While most will head to Party City or Spirit of Halloween, both of which can be found just a few minutes drive from your Alston apartment, if you’re looking for something extra special, we have a few suggestions as well. We guarantee, you’ll be the only one with your costume if you head to these stores!

RonJo’s Magic and Costumes – A bit of a trip of for a Halloween costume, but well worth it in Port Jefferson, RonJo’s has been serving our community’s magic and costume needs since 1974. With over 10,000 products of wigs, makeup, costumes, props and of course, magic, RonJo’s is the best to go if you’re looking to really nail your Halloween costume. They even have consultants there who can help you navigate their store and put together the perfect ensemble.

Paper Doll Vintage Boutique – When you were a little kid, many of us had that cool box of old clothes in their attic that belonged to mom, aunts and uncles, that you just LOVED going through for a fun dress-up session. Well, now that cool old box of clothes is a full-fledge store, but without the musty attic smell! Paper Doll Vintage Boutique is located about 15 minutes away in Sayville, right on the Main Street. And this is NOT your average used clothing boutique. With clothing and accessories from every decade, starting with the Victorian era, you’ll find beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces in excellent condition. They also sell amazing vintage reproduction items, especially of the pin-up variety. Because of the unique nature of the items sold, the shop has become a local hub for artists and the community, hosting monthly art shows, classes, events and fashion shows – however, it’s also the perfect place to get a one of a kind outfit for Halloween.
