MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

As Basin residents get into the Halloween spirit, many still might need a costume.

“We still have a few last-minute shoppers,” Tricia Beasley, Spirit Halloween employee.

Shoppers who visited Spirit Halloween in Midland found out they still have options.

“This year I’ve seen Moana, Hocus Pocus, and the Nightmare Before Christmas,” said Beasley.

Not into that, there’s even costumes for an older crowd.

“I’m always partial to vampires but I think the period costumes like the Victorian and Steam punk, I think all of that is pretty popular,” said Beasley.

Whether it’s masks or full costumes, some have been able to find exactly what they are looking for.

“We’re pretty excited to do it this year since it’s her first year. She knows exactly what’s going on,” said Melisa Gray, Halloween shopper.

Gray found the perfect Despicable Me costume for her daughter.

“We’re looking for her a Minion costume,” said Gray.

If you are stuck on ideas there’s always the alternative.

“Go simple and build it yourself,” said Beasley.

Because this is the one time of year where creativity rules.

“Happy Halloween,” said Gray’s daughter.

Some of the money raised from sales by Spirit Halloween stores is donated to local children’s hospitals.
