Ah, the Costume Shoppe! From classic haunts, props and accessories to contacts, fangs and gore, this is by far one of Calgary’s most popular and beloved stores for any holiday that requires you to get dressed all the way up. Though it’s definitely one of the more expensive shops on this list, these costumes are super high quality and will last for years to come.
