Halloween Shopping on Etsy

If I was not yet focused on Halloween, now I am. I have been consumed with an abundant range of handmade Halloween costumes on Etsy. Fully entertained, I am in awe of the detail and, in certain cases, humored by the costumes. These items may be simply inspiration or the perfect choice for Halloween. My selections range in price point and age. Do not wait too long to order, as many shops have deadlines given most items are individually crafted. Enjoy!

Baby Bones Hat $22 and Bony Baby and Tot (one piece, pant and hat set) by Small Threads $130 to $142. Available in sizes 3-6 months to 6. I adore this costume. Of course, a splurge. Good news, the hat is sold individually and could go far with a black turtleneck and tights. I just bought the hat!

Vampire Bat Shoes by Piddies $28 -$34. Available in sizes 4-12. Also available in slippers! Could make a simple costume and certain to be worn post Halloween as well.

French Fry Overalls by Rae Gun $39.50. Available in sizes 3 months to 2T. I can't stop smiling (or laughing). I would expect older siblings would love this for their younger brother or sister. Shop also has a Dorothy Wizard of Oz dress as well as other girls costumes.

Pirate Cape by Lazy Saddle Kids $25. Reversible cape with the skull and crossbones and a wonderful pirate ship on other side. See the other photos to get a full appreciation of the cape. Also like the Witchy Cape and Green Cape.

Little Lion Earflap Beanie and Cuffs by Three Fish Shop $50. Available in sizes 3-12 months. More cute, than scary.

Elfin Crown by Woodrootling $18. "A fairy skirt or elfin crown or where ever their imaginations take them." Simple and very special.

Frankenstein Hand painted Mary Jane Shoes by Snanimals $24. Available in whole sizes 1-10.

Bear Helmet by Glitz Concepts $24. Available in infant and child sizes. Halloween or winter cap?

Etsy has created several Halloween guides including costumes (adults too), decor and tricks, treats and parties. Definitely worth checking out.
