The must-visit Manchester boutiques for Halloween this year

American Graffitti

Halloween may be very different this year, but that doesn’t mean our costumes have to be.

Whether you’re holding a COVID-compliant spooky garden party or going to Manchester’s immersive Halloween drive-in theatre, it’s important that you look the part.

Even during a pandemic, it wouldn’t be Halloween without getting dressed up in the scariest possible costumes, after all.

These Manchester boutiques have got you covered if you don’t know where to start.

American Graffitti

While some know this boutique for its selection of vintage and retro clothing, what’s less-known is that American Graffiti also specialises in fancy dress, accessories and wigs – making it the perfect Halloween destination!

If you’re looking for something a bit outside of the box then the store’s quirky and kitsch selection is perfect for you.

Where to find them:
2nd Floor, Afflecks, Manchester, M4 1PW


Halloween isn’t just about dressing the part, you need to have the makeup to match.

MUOBU sells an exclusive range of cosmetic grade glitters, ‘Crazy Colour’ hair dye and spooky makeup that you won’t find anywhere else.

Whether you want to use face jewels to create a Día de los Muertos inspired skeleton or UV cosmetics to stand out from the crowd, this boutique is an essential visit.

Where to find them:
2nd Floor, Afflecks, Manchester, M4 1PW
