REVIEW: HALLOWEEN SHOPPING

Not even two weeks left and Halloween will be here! For this occasion I’ve decided to check out some stores in downtown for the obligatory Halloween costume shopping. 15545295126_94612b80b9_b
The variety of crazy costumes at the Halloween shops here in North America is just incredible. You really get lost in between all these clothes! Furthermore you are getting so many different impressions that in the end you cannot really make up your mind. I can only speak for myself but my Halloween shopping was absolutely successful. My friend and I will go as Mario & Luigi! I’m pretty sure everyone knows these both characters. They are from the famous video game released in the 80s and it was later re-released for Wii as well.

If you haven’t gotten your costume yet or if you still have no idea what to wear here are some ideas: Witch/Vampire/Zombie, Superhero, Animal, Doctor/Nurse, Batman, Movie Character, Star Wars Character, Political, Pirate or Minion.15382473248_5e44e2d014_b

For all of you who haven’t found the right Halloween costume yet, you should definitely check out the three shops (Halloween Alley, Boo La La Costumes and Spirit Halloween) in North Vancouver! They have a nice variety of different costumes. You can also find costumes and other Halloween stuff at Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs and Rexell.

Hope you will find some scary/funny/crazy/whatever costumes there or somewhere else!

How was your weekend?

Scary, scary, scary! Last weekend we visited “The Dunbar Haunted House”. Here you can read a brief summary of the event. And of course you can see a few impressive pictures. Just a reminder – it took nearly four months to set up the haunt!

 

If you want to read what the  Dunbar House is about, please click here.

Please be patient, if you want to visit it the next few days. The line-up took nearly two hours! But fortunately there were some zombies making the waiting time more excited!

Unfortunately it was prohibited to take pictures inside the house. But anyways – you have to experience how the zombies send a chill down your spine!

All things considered, it was a great activity. Because of the scary volunteers and the detailed haunt we can say that it is definitely worth it to visit “The Dunbar Haunted House”!

 

AND HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND? Just leave a comment below! 🙂

Take care,

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

—GET SOME VERY CHEAP HALLOWEEN STUFF AND SAVE MONEY!!—

Today I want to talk about how to save money very easily during your time here in Vancouver. We are almost in the middle of October.
But what does it actually mean? Well, HALLOWEEN is almost here! Hence, you definitely have to dress up if you are going to a Halloween party, because everyone will dress up! EVERYONE, I promise!

But well, I know that most of you didn’t bring along a costume when you came to Canada. For that, I will show you a very cheap thrift store where you can buy very cheap costumes concerning Halloween.

Do you know “Value Village”? Value Village is a thrift store where people can shop and donate high quality second hand merchandise. So if you need some stuff or a costume and all these things for Halloween, you can get it there very cheap! Founded in 1954, Value Village is an international secondhand store chain. Value Village purchases and resells items donated by its nonprofit partners – turning otherwise unused items into sustainable revenue that supports their programs and services.

The nearest thrift store is in 1820 E Hastings St. Click here to see the map.

Open hours:
Mon-Sat 9-10 | Sun 10-9 

 

I hope you will find some great stuff for Halloween!

See you soon,
Tobias
