LA Halloween Stores: 14 Locals Shops To Buy Your Best Halloween Costume (PHOTOS)

Halloween is just around the corner and everyone in LA is about to hit up the best stores in town (that is, unless you've pre-ordered online or are recycling last year's costume. It pays to be green). But if you're like most of us Angelenos, too busy to find a cheap gas station or go in for your dental check-up, here are some LA Halloween store ideas to help increase your chances of finding that perfect costume this year.

Some are quirky hole-in-the-walls, some have a more mom-and-pop vibe, while some are definitely a little too sexy for mom or pop (i.e. Trashy Lingerie). There are great places to rent and vintage stores to scour. Now get shopping.
