Trick-or-Treating Tips for Halloween Weekend

We are mere days away from the most colorful, creative and frightfully fun time of the year: Halloween!  But before you send your costumed candy-collectors out into the neighborhood on their annual harvest of sweets, study up on safety and consider the following advice.  Always assemble Halloween costumes with care, using only non-flammable materials, and examine the outfit’s length to make certain no fabric or Accessories are dangling or can get tangled up while traveling from door-to-door.  If a Mask is part of the Halloween disguise, be sure to have adequate visibility through the eye holes and that all noises from nearby cars or people can be clearly heard through ear holes.  When approaching an unfamiliar home on the haunted holiday, only knock or ring the doorbell if a porch light is on and the house appears inviting to dressed-up guests.  Avoid barking dogs and dark yards as you make the rounds, adhere to all traffic rules and stop lights when crossing streets and try to travel in groups of 2 or more, keeping a close eye on each other using the buddy system.  Before sampling the treats that kids have been given, parents should inspect the snacks, making sure all the packages are still factory sealed before the long-awaited ripping, tearing and devouring begins.  A little preparedness and planning is all that’s needed for Halloween to go off without a hitch.  Have a blast, scare yourself (and others) silly, but keep your wits about you because while October 31st may only come once a year, like a zombie hungry for brains, it will return before you know it!

Halloween’s Almost Here…One Week and Counting!

Final preparations are in the works to make this Halloween the best one ever.  Decorations are being put up, turning normal residences into sinister Haunted HousesMoms and Dads are helping their Kids assemble creative disguises for the big day.  Costume parties this weekend and next are being organized for grown-up guys and girls who want to celebrate with spooky, sexy spirit.  Bowls full of candy set out by the front door are waiting for eager groups of Trick-or-Treaters to come collecting.  We’re overjoyed that the holiday is nearly upon us and for all the last minute shoppers out there, there’s still just enough time to pick an outfit and Accessories for fast shipping right to your door.  Halloween is a week away but the scariest thing we can think of is being without a costume on October 31st – browse our choices and place your order today before it’s too late!

October=Yankees Time!

Sure October is the best month of the year…I mean we celebrate Halloween!

However, October also means game time…or should I say Yankee time?

In recent years, the highly popular Yankees have ended their past seasons in disappointment.  With extensive World Series and Championship records, fans were beginning to wonder if these over-paid players were even motivated to execute?

If that was in question at one point….fans are surely singing another tune this month.

The Yankees are on the super high way to the World Series!!…

First stop was Minnesota where the Bronx Bombers swept the series 3-0.  Tonight, they face the L.A. Angels with whom they already lead 3-1.

Should be a good one as the battle of the coasts continues!

Halloween is here before you know it…So make sure to tune in..

And since baseball is one of America’s favorite past times…check out our costumes!!

Getting Jazzed Up for The Princess and The Frog

The excitement is building around Disney’s newest animated film The Princess and The Frog well in advance of its December 11 release date.  Directed by the team who also brought us the classics The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter delivered a video message this week touting the movie’s return to a glorious 2D style of animation.  We’re always fans of the unforgettable characters Disney comes up with, but the New Orleans setting for the story really gets us giddy when we think of all the costume possibilities.  So now it’s not just Princess Tiana herself or a Frog Suit that costumers are limited to when celebrating this new motion picture.  In fact, anything Princess and everything N’awlins is fair game including Mardi Gras outfits, ’20s Flapper dresses and glamorous Southern Belle gowns.  The Princess and The Frog is sure to be a big hit at the box office; help spread the word this Halloween with any of the costume ideas above!

Behind the Scenes of Iron Man 2

The Costume News Round-Up

Halloween is only a couple more weeks away and costume-related happenings are starting to pop up all around the country.  Here are a few stories from the East Coast that caught our eye as we prepare for the big dress-up holiday.  For Floridian dog owners, October 24th is a day to mark down on the calendar because that’s when Dogs For Life’s 8th Annual Howl-O-Ween Canine Costume Parade and Pet Expo takes place in Vero Beach.  Click here for more information on this delightful day of dog disguises and don’t forget to check out our selection of pet costumes to help your furry friend celebrate as well.  From the costume crime blotter, a Halloween shopper in South Carolina ended up in jail this week for trying to swipe a sexy outfit from her local mall.  The detail that elevates this above simple shoplifting is that it was a Police Officer Costume that she stuffed into her purse.  The Smoking Gun has a write-up on the incident, but we’ve got the Hot Cop Costumes that she wanted to get away with.  After a trip to the station we figure she got an up-close look at the Uniform and Accessories our boys in blue wear, so if she still wants to be a provocative policeman on Halloween, her outfit might be even more authentic post-arrest!
