Value Village // multiple locations

If you're not down to spend an entire paycheque on a one night identity, it's no doubt to thrift out your next costume at this beloved thrift store located all over Toronto. Every year, Value Village has a number of costumes for you to choose from for some insanely inexpensive prices!

Whether it be a legit costume itself or you decide to DIY it with other thrift shop finds, the opportunities are endless. But I suggest going in now as people tend to pick out the best costumes earlier on leaving you with fewer options.
