The Best Halloween Shops in San Luis Obispo

Halloween is that one magical time of year when you can be anything you imagine. Inspiration often comes from history, movies, pop culture, technology, or folklore. Your creative talents can be on display with the right costume and these San Luis Obispo venues are eager to help you get in character.


Let's Party has everything you need to celebrate any occasion and is especially festive when it comes to Halloween. The family-owned store on Santa Rosa Street is the local mask headquarters and they carry both fanciful and ghoulish masks of every kind.

The store has several rooms bursting with all the props, accessories, make-up, and costumes needed for a perfect Halloween party. The knowledgeable and friendly owners are always nearby to answer questions and help you navigate your way through the huge selection.


Ruby Rose is not a costume store but it is an ideal destination to find and fashion a unique Halloween persona. The shop on Monterey Street specializes in whimsical vintage and unusual wonders and you will think you just stumbled upon grandma's attic.

Owner Stephanie Hendry is a devoted collector of clothing from the 1940's to the 1970's as well as curious odds and ends from days gone by. You might think you walked into a movie. Ruby Rose is by far the best venue for costume jewelry to complete your Halloween ensemble.


Spirit Halloween is your big box solution for everything associated with Halloween. The large store on Madonna Road sells a wide array of decor, costumes, animatronics, and accessories for the whole family. It is San Luis Obispo's Halloween celebration command post.

Spirit Halloween carries everything you need for that October party. Outdoor and indoor decorations, movies, and games are available as well as party supplies and props. You can shop by character, time period, or occupation. It's a one-stop experience.


Hep Kat Clothing is as cool as its name implies. Their inventory for both men and women reflects a mid-century style with a little rockabilly thrown in. You can find one-of-a-kind outfits sure to make you stand out at any Halloween shindig.

The shop on Marsh Street features an impressive selection of period hats, costume jewelry, and shoes to try on and get bedazzled by. The smiling staff will assist you as you create a personalized Halloween ensemble others will envy.
