Halloween decorations?

Anyone know of a location in Zurich that sells Halloween costumes and/or decorations? I have plenty of 'crafting' options, but I would love to track down a fog machine, some black light, fake spider webs, streamers, etc. Thanks and Happy Halloween

Re: Halloween decorations?

I think that you're going to be disappointed that Halloween isn't celebrated in the same way to which you're used back in Kansas.

You should be able to find "Made in China" costumes in the usual supermarkets - just keep cigarettes and naked flames well away, when being worn.

Black light ?

Pardon my ignorance -

I thought Black was the absence of light.

Or am i getting to technical?

I second the FKW on Bahnhofstrasse. Many things just by the front door.

Fog machines and Black lights you can get at Conrad. You might want to send a flyer around to the neighbours. We ended up being halloween central for our street, we started by just having a party for the kids. A few of the neighbors asked what it was all about, and when we told them that the children normally go door to door, they were all in, so the following year we sent out a flyer about a month ahead... about every 2nd house had a pumpkin and stuff for the kids.

Thanks! It's for a small apéro at work upon request of my colleagues. Just want to have a few decorations so they all get the idea.

Black light is that dim light that makes your teeth glow in the dark

Re: Halloween decorations?

I don't know if they have any of these items, but Manor had some cool stuff like huge sculls and masks. Plus, if you buy online and use promo code HALLOWEEN15, I think you get 20% off.

Re: Halloween decorations?

Hi!

There is a decent size stand-alone store in Zug near Zugerland. By far the biggest Halloween area/store/loctation I have seen since moving here. I have not been inside though.

Good luck!
Melissa
