Living abroad is full of all sorts of adventures, including many reasons to celebrate. You never know when you’ll be invited to a costume party or have the need to throw a surprise birthday party, so it’s best to act like a superhero and be prepared!
I recently had the experience of needing a costume and found myself at a complete loss, especially since I don’t actually like dressing up and didn’t have the box of random ‘dress up’ items we usually pull from at home when situations like this come up. Thankfully, a good friend of mine had done her homework and knew just where to go to find the perfect costumes!
We took the metro to Sol and walked a short way down Calle Mayor to reach Il Barullo – a party supply and costume shop. They had quite a selection for such a small shop and we found exactly what we were looking for. Il Barullo has you covered whether you’re planning a 1st birthday party for your little one, a graduation party for a hard-working grad student, or are ready to get decked out for Halloween!
