    Most of us associate October with the wild and wacky fun of Halloween – we know here at Oya we sure do! But for some, October is a meaningful time of year: it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a time to stop and remember everyone around us who is affected by this very scary and very real disease. So this October, we are participating in a beautiful campaign: this month, for each of the products below that is purchased, $10 will be donated to the Cedars Cancer Foundation.

    Matching Halloween Couples Costumes

    emily–By Emily S.

    Halloween – a time to scare, a time to dress up, and a time to create the most haunted house possible!

But we here at Oya Costumes think that normal is boring, and weirdos are much more fun to party with!

    My Top Halloween Choices – Childrens Costumes

    yas–By Yasmina A.

    With only 80 days until Halloween, choosing the perfect costume is already creeping on everyone’s mind, and rightfully so. The only thing more complicated and meticulous than finding an outfit for a night out is finding the perfect costume for October 31st. We’ve gone through all of our inventory for you to handpick some of our favourites for this season.

    Lil Monster Costume
    Pick #1 :
    Lil Monster

    Choosing one costume for infants may have been one of the toughest selections ever. Here at Oya Costumes, we have tons of costumes for little ones that are so adorable. When it comes to babies, you can only make them cuter. This costume is especially fluffy and cute, which is why it’s my first choice. Check out the Lil Monster costume.

    Batman Blue Muscle Chest
    Pick #2 :
    Batman Blue
    Muscle Chest

    Any young boy is bound to, at some point, go through a superhero phase. Men in capes, saving the world with their incredible powers, what’s not to love? Batman, an generational icon, is one of the more mysterious yet humane super heros and this costume is the creme de la creme of batman costumes. In other words, its the best of the best when its comes to boys’ costumes. Find Batman costumes at Oya Costumes.

    Monarch Butterfly
    Pick #3:

    This costume is utterly enchanting and will sweep any girl off her feet. I remember as a young girl wanting to own just about every costume I came across, so this was a difficult selection as well. Butterflies are unanimously loved for their delicacy, which makes it a popular choice for costumes as well. The lush flowerhead piece and butterfly wings are included which is why this costume is on my list! Shop Butterfly costumes at Oya!

    Pirate Babe Costume
    Pick #4 :
    Pirate Babe

    In my experience, it can be really tricky for teenage girls to find the perfect costume. Trying to not look conservative or too revealing, while finding a costume that’s not too simple but doesn’t look like you’ve tried too hard is a challenge we all know too well. This Pirate babe is a Halloween staple, but this one has an added flare with the golden details. It is also not too revealing for the average teenage, while not being overly conservative. In other words, this costume solves all of the dilemmas that come with Halloween costumes. Find the Pirate Babe costume here.

Find the Man Eating Shark here.

    Austin Powers Dr Evil
    Pick #2 :
    Austin Powers
    Dr. Evil

    Austin Powers will always be one of my favourite movies. Mike Meyers, standing proof of Canadian talent, makes everyone laugh with both silly gags and brilliant puns. Dr. Evil, who spent years in med school so that he could be called Dr. Evil, not Mr. Evil is an iconic choice for Halloween. Shop for Dr. Evil costumes here.

    Dragon Warrior King
    Pick #3:
    Warrior King

Shop for Pirates of the Caribbean costumes at Oya Costumes!

    Top 4 Halloween Accessories


    My Top Halloween Choices – Accessories

    yas–By Yasmina A.

    Whether it’s the finishing touch to your costume or even the centre piece of the look, I cannot stress enough the importance of accessories in Halloween. These items are often overlooked, despite stepping up your costume game from a 7 to a 10. On top of that, your accessories will never ‘not fit’ or ‘look weird on me’. In other words, you can never fail. With pages on end of options, here are only a handful of accessories that stood out for me.

    Yeti Hat
    Pick #1 :

    This Yeti Hat may be the cutest accessory I’ve ever encountered. It really speaks for itself. The furry hat is comfortable and unbelievably adorable. It can even be worn alone for a cute yet understated look this Halloween. Out of all the accessories listed below, this one is by far my personal favourite. Shop for Yeti Hat.

    Blank Black Eyes Doll Mask
    Pick #2 :
    Blank Black Eyes
    Doll Mask

    If there’s one thing to know about me is that I hate scary movies. I’m what a six year might call, a scaredy cat. This Blank Black Eyes Doll mask is probably one of the most terrifying masks out there. For pranksters and thrill-seekers, this accessory is a must-have. Blank Black Eyes Doll Mask at Oya Costumes.

    Ghost Contact Eyes
    Pick #3 :
    White/Grey Ghost
    Contact Lenses

    They say eyes are the window to the soul, so why not dress up them up this Halloween? You could be wearing a potato sac and people will be captured with these White/Grey Ghost contact lenses. Here at Oya Costumes, we have a wide selection of coloured contact lenses, but these ones really caught my eye. The grey colour contrasting the black pupil is definitely something I want to try out this Halloween. Check out these Ghost Contact Lenses.

    Jurassic World T-Rex Vinyl Mask Adult
    Pick #4 :
    Jurassic World
    T-Rex Vinyl Mask

    This year, Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic World hit the box office and was a massive success. With it’s state of the art graphic design it’s easy to see why the fourth installment set the record for the biggest opening weekend in North America. This high quality mask too brings the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar back to life while waiting impatiently for the sequel in 2018. Shop at Oya Costumes for the T-Rex Vinyl Adult Mask.

    Top 5 Womens Halloween Costumes


    My Top Costume Choices – Women

    yas–By Yasmina A.

    With less than 80 days until Halloween, choosing the perfect costume is already creeping on everyone’s mind, and rightfully so. The only thing more complicated and meticulous than finding an outfit for a night out is finding the perfect costume for October 31st. Add one of the largest costume collections in Canada, and the process becomes even more difficult. So I hand picked some of my favourites for this season.



    cinderella picture
    Pick #1 :

    After Disney’s retelling of the beloved story of Cinderella in march this year, princesses have been re-enchanting women and girls of all ages all over again. The modern take on the iconic film has made the charming princess of the 50s a relatable woman of the 21st century. Beautiful gowns as well as regal dresses will no doubt be a popular pick this season. This costume in particular looks like it stepped right out of a fairytale that only Walt Disney could imagine. Shop for Princess costumes at Oya Costumes.

    kangaroo onesie
    Pick 2 : Kittle Kangaroo Adult Onesie

    Three years ago, the onesie exploded on the scene and has become a lasting staple ever since.  At this point, not owning a onesie is downright absurd. Unlike many other trends, it has continued to be the costume of choice because of its comfort and flamboyant silliness. Its polar fleece fabric also makes it a practical choice to deal with the harsh reality that is October weather. The Kangaroo is my personal favourite, but when it comes to an animal onesie, you really can’t go wrong. Find this other animal onesies at Oya.



    Pick 3 : Midnight Vampiress

    Elegance is the first thing that comes to mind when looking at this costume. The floor-length dress is a show-stopper without being too revealing, striking a perfect balance. Also available in plus size, the Midnight Vampiress is your classic costume pick this season. This choice will be one you will never regret. After all, isn’t Halloween supposed to be about monstors, ghouls and vampires? Find the Midnight Vampiress costume here.



    Pick 4 : ‘Dames Like Us’ Flapper Dress

    For those of you who are looking to be a little cheeky this Halloween, this flapper dress is your go-to. With almost a century since Fitzgerald’s novels changed American literature, channelling the 1920s will always be tasteful and a little naughty. Here at Oya Costumes, we have a vast selection of flapper dresses, but this recent addition to our collection really caught my eye. The deep red sequins and details at the hem of the dress really sets it apart. If ever the sequins become too overwhelming, the costume is also reversible, meaning that it is also accident proof. If ever someone spills a drink on your dress, you don’t need to worry about it ruining your night. Be sure to add a boa, a head piece and a drink to complete your look. In Fitzgerald’s words, too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right. Shop here.



    breakfast at tiffanys

    Pick 5 :
    Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tifanny’s

    Does this choice require further explanation? In my absolute favourite movie, Truman Capote’s short-story comes to life in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This classic movie is centred around Audrey Hepburn’s take on Holly Golightly, carrying herself with such poise and style. This movie is such a staple in Hollywood’s Golden Age, I don’t know a single girl who wouldn’t want to emulate Audrey’s class all year long. The costume includes the iconic black dress that has since become every girl’s closet necessity. It also includes a replica of her tasteful accessories, including her famous tiara and necklace. Breakfast at Tifanny’s Costumes
