Truth is, New Orleans does Halloween like no other place in the world. Throughout the ghoulish season, NOLA, fueled by its irrepressible, all-year-round thirst for toasting to anything life-related, mutates into a paranormal hub filled with everything from zombie parades to vampire balls.

So if you plan on celebrating the supernatural in New Orleans this year, be sure to dress the part. Here, the best places to shop for Halloween attire.
