While Halloween may not be as big of a deal in Paris and France for that matter as in the US, this tradition is slowly creeping up, so you’ll find a few shops to pick up some supplies to spice up your Halloween night!
Of course, there might be more shops but I was able to check out only 3 of them so these are the ones I will be talking about and also let you know what to expect.

Where to Buy Halloween Costumes in Paris Plus Decorations
Here are the 3 places to buy Halloween costumes in Paris plus decorations!
1. Aux Feux de la Fête
My first stop in my search for outfits and decorations was Aux Feux de la Fête located in the trendy neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 6th arrondissement.
This place has 2 shops just opposite each other and although they sell the same things, one is bigger which means more stuff than the other.
Also one solely focuses on decorations while the other one has mostly Halloween costumes, accessories, and some decorations.
They have quite a variety of Halloween outfits and depending on when you go, you can find what you’re looking for.
I actually found an outfit I loved here but since I had FOMO that other places could have something better, I decided to first check out the other 2 places.
I eventually returned here and bought my Halloween outfit from this shop.
Price range: Among the 3 Halloween shops in Paris that I am covering in this post, I found this place to be mid-range.
Staff: The staff is very attentive, friendly, and always available to offer help.
Location: 135 bis Bd du Montparnasse, 75006 Paris.
How to get there: You can take Metro Line 12 and get off Notre-Dame des Champs, Metro Line 4 and stop at Vavin, or Metro Line 6 and stop at Raspail. You’ll be just a 6-minute walk away from any of these metro stops.
2. Au Clown de la République
Au Clown de la République is another place in Paris to buy Halloween costumes and decorations.
As you might have guessed, it is located in Republique. Of all the 3 places, this shop was the most beautifully decorated.
Right from the outside, you instantly get into the Halloween vibe thanks to their decorations which spread onto the inside.
To add to that, the the staff were also adorning Halloween outfits which really helped to set the mood!
This shop has quite a lot more Halloween outfits and more variety compared to the one above (at least at the time of my visit), but I also found them a bit more expensive compared to other Halloween shops in Paris on this list.
They had a few outfits I could see myself buying but they were just out of my budget range.
Price range: Pricey compared to the other 2.
Staff: The staff was friendly and their Halloween outfits helped to bring the real vibe.
Location: 11 Bd Saint-Martin, 75003 Paris.
How to get there: You can either take Metro Line 9 or 8 and stop at Republique. The shop is right next to this metro station.
3. Au Fou Rire
If you’re in the Montmartre area, then check out Au Fou Rire! It is quite cramped with a little bit of everything so you’ll definitely find something.
I liked that they have some kind of magazines at the entrance so you can look through them and decide on which outfit you’d like to buy before searching in the actual store.
They also have quite a number of little decorations and accessories you might not find in the 2 other stores I mentioned. I picked out a few accessories from this shop that were cheap compared to the other 2 stores.
Price range: When I compared prices, this place had the cheapest items.
Staff: I found the staff to be a bit pushy with wanting to sell you multiple things (agreed it’s their job) but sometimes it’s nice to shop around without being asked every minute by a different seller if you want to try something else.
Location: 22 Bis Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009 Paris.
How to get there: You can take Metro Line 12 and stop at Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, Metro Line 9 and stop at Grands Boulevards, or Metro Line 3 and stop at Bourse. All these stations are about 7 minutes walk to the shop.
A Few Observations From All These Shops
Don’t expect high-quality products. All their items are from China but for one-time use, they pretty much get the job done. The accessories and the decorations are ok but the quality of the Halloween costumes is not the best.
Again, for the price you’re paying, I think it’s OK as made-in-France costumes will probably be 4 times the price, but if you’re looking for something last minute, these will get the job done!
The items sold at these places don’t defer that much but it will depend on when you go, and what will still be in stock so I recommend going to all 3 places before you finally decide on what you get.
Final Thoughts on Where to Buy Halloween Decorations in Paris Plus Costumes
