Halloween is the one time of the year that we can dress up in costume and be as fanciful or as ridiculous as we would like. Kids get to go to our neighbors’ homes and ask for free candy. Adults get to dress up just for fun or for Halloween parties or fantastic Halloween balls. Some people even go to work in costume. If you’re looking for an extraordinary costume to buy or rent this year, check out what we think are the Best Costume Shops in Los Angeles.

    Hmmm I don’t see Shelly’s Dance & Costume (in westwood) on there. Personally I think that is the best costume shop in LA.
