    Uhhh, you can probably get some sweet combat boots at the army surplus store in NLGX. I mean, it's kinda like an army surplus store, except with fewer rednecks. Those places were awesome though.

    Taobao. Fucking hell

    Yashow Market
    With five floors stocking everything you can possibly imagine, the infamous Yashow Market can certainly provide you with adequate Halloween paraphernalia. Come here to stock up on masks, makeup and fangs. Daily 9.30am-9pm. 58 Gongti Beilu, Chaoyang District. (6415 1726)
    雅秀市场, 朝阳区工体北路58号 


    Huan Run – a small costume rental store located in Wanda Plaza – is a bit better, but still.


    Xidan, too, houses a few such vendors – such as the Minority World Market in the back roads past Starbucks and by McDonald’s. We have it on good account that this is the place in Beijing for costumes, whether you’re looking for fake glasses, feather boas, bling, colored contacts or lingerie. It can be tricky to find, but the items are cheap and diverse and just plain eccentric – perfect for Hallow’s Eve.

    Well, that settles it then. I'm going as Giant Cloud of Babies-Man. Seriously what the hell.
