Our Story

Once upon an October midnight in 1992, the Fallenstein family began brewing a Halloween dream. Julie and Lisa Fallenstein recalled their fond trick-or-treat memories, heading out into the neighborhood for candy and spooky fun. Their costumes were hand-crafted by Jenice, their mom, and each Halloween was more epic than the last. They decided to share that same experience with their community by renting out those hand-crafted costumes out of their small garage in Minnesota. But they didn’t stop there…

The small shop became an instant hit, and the little idea transformed into Costumes Galore. There, the entire Fallenstein family grew the shop into something more. It became the home for any kind of Halloween costume you could imagine! From scary to wacky, they had everything. In 2001, Tom Fallenstein took the shop online with a small website and found a massive audience of Halloween fans, ready to celebrate the holiday.

And it’s continued to grow even since then. Now, we are one of the largest retailers of costumes, accessories, and Halloween décor. is the culmination of the passion and teamwork started by the Fallenstein family in their garage! We’ve grown to over 250 full-time team members and 1,500 seasonal team members during our busy season. And we’ll continue to grow to make sure we deliver the Halloween spirit across the world. We’re working all year round to make Halloween the best time of year!

We’ll never rest until everyone gets the Halloween experience they’ve always dreamed about! Whether that means taking your child out trick-or-treating for the first time or recapturing the Halloween magic as an adult, will be there!
