Did you know that traditionally the purpose of wearing scary costumes is actually to ward off spirits? That makes Halloween a great excuse to bring out your freakiest outfits. Here are some stores you can shop for your Halloween outfit.


Pan-In-The-Box

Far East Plaza is thrifting heaven (check out our article on thrift shopping!) so if you’re looking for something more affordable, Lips Enterprise is an excellent place to search.

After getting your outfit, what’s next? Show off your #OOTD! Celebrate Halloween with lyfeportal’s list of spine-chilling events. Ranging from hair-raising scare houses to kids-friendly events, with safe management measures loosened this year, there are plenty of attractions suitable for all.


Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 10

Starting off the list with Southeast Asia’s biggest Halloween event, Halloween Horror Nights is back with more spine-chilling thrills! Here’s what you can expect: 3 Terrifying Haunted Houses, 2 Sinister Scare Zones, 3 Special Experiences, a Live Show and Ghoulishly Delicious Offerings. The Hunt for Pontianak scare zone sounds extra interesting and terrifying, as Pontianak stories are not unfamiliar to most Singaporeans. Many of us would have probably heard one or two in our life, regardless if it’s a personal recount from someone close or just a myth that has been spread for many generations. If you’re looking to get a good scare, this is definitely the event for you. Warning: not suitable for the faint-hearted ones!


Tickets are priced at $68 for non-peak, $78 for peak and $288 for R.I.P Tour (may your wallet and you both R.I.P)

An event back by popular demand, Harrowing Halloween may be a good alternative to Halloween Horror Nights if you’re looking for something more affordable (and probably less queueing). What you can expect: Haunted House (Flight 013), Fringe Activities, Special Exhibition, After Dark Tour: (Law) Lore of a Hungry Ghost, Screening of short horror films, Interactive Zone (Block 444), XD Theatre Horror Film and Chill Out Zone for scarily good food! If you are looking to have a good time without having to spend, some of these activities are free of charge. Other than these exciting line-ups, they also have a Black Lake Laser Battlefield (Laser Tag) and many escape rooms to choose from. This is definitely an event worth a visit.
