Why You Need to Buy Your Kid's Halloween Costume This Week

The close of September means three things: the leaves are changing, the weather is cooling and, yes, it’s time to start buying Halloween costumes.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a costume for your little one this year (while avoiding the typical department store options), this is the best week to do so. Two of our favorite sale sites, Gilt Groupe and Zulily, are having huge sales on unique, quality Halloween costumes.

Click through to see a sneak peak of the best Halloween sales this week.

Starting today, Zulily is having a massive Halloween Costume event from Princess Expressions, Tutu Moi, Wishing Wear, Simply Princess and more:

Both boys and girls can find something at the Wishingwear sale, up to 75% off. Like this Butterfly Princess, originally $100, is now $49.99 on Zulily.
