Halloween will be here before you know it. Start planning your costume now so you don't end up with leftovers. Here is my list of where to buy your 2012 Halloween costumes in Texarkana.


There have been several new action hero and kids' movies released since last Halloween that you can expect your little ones to have special requests for new costumes this year. Trying to pass off last year's costume may be problematic for you. The kiddos probably won't be able to squeeze into them anyway.

Spirit Halloween Super Store: Located at 5409 West 7th Street, Texarkana, Texas. They usually open the day after Labor Day. All of their costumes are for sale, no rentals. From kids' movie character costumes to the traditional Scream masks, they have it all. Spirit Halloween Super Store has the largest selection of costumes around. In September they should be open on Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. By October, they will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
