There are several Micheals locations in the Charlotte area you can visit.

They sell glitter, fabrics, buttons, gems, fuzzy boas and more so get creative.

    Target’s Halloween section is great. They have a wide variety of costumes, props, and accessories. Their selection is pretty incredible. A range of styles is available from flirty mini dresses to form-fitting catsuits. They even have full-length gowns. My personal favorite is the animal plush heads. They are hilarious.
