Dead Roses Witch Hat

Thursday, 04 September 2014 1:00

One of my favorite characters in the Warner Bros.® series of cartoons is Witch Hazel, who debuted in the 1954 short, "Bewitched Bunny." Disney® had previously created a Witch Hazel, and she was kind of cool too, but not nearly as sarcastic or quite as much the fashion victim as the Hazel created by Warner Bros. animator, Chuck Jones. A major part of his Hazel's signature style included a wonderfully crumpled black hat. We think she would approve of our Dead Roses Halloween Hat with its scrunched top, wilting flowers and stowaway spider. Hauntingly hideous haute couture!

Wicked Halloween Apron

Tuesday, 02 September 2014 1:00

It's coming up on Halloween season and costume shops have started popping up in all sorts of unusual places. Empty store fronts become haunted mansions for a few weeks and then vanish once again. It's appropriately spooky! They have all sizes and shapes of costumes for kids, and there seems to be endless options for buying and making kiddie costumes online. But... what about the grown-ups? If you don't want to be a glamourous vampire, a hot nurse, or Fred Flintstone, you're kinda out of luck. Sometimes, you don't want to get all decked out; you just want a little something fun to wear to go out trick-or-treating with the kids or to answer the door for the ghosts and ghouls. We think our Wicked Halloween Apron is the perfect choice. It's fun to make from pre-cuts, and with the faux front lacing, you'll be the most stylish wicked witch on the block.

Haunted Halloween: Bat Mobile

I admit to a fascination with bats. Perhaps it's because I'm so nearsighted and think it might be nice to have radar when I've knocked my eyeglasses off the nightstand. Or, maybe I like how they swoop in nearly silent loops through the night skies above our hay field. They don't scare me in the least. Anything gobbling up spiders and bugs is okay in my book. Our very cute Halloween Mobile boasts five friendly bats with felt fangs and button eyes. Stuffed with polyester fiber fill, they are soft and chubby and ready to fly above your door to welcome trick-or-treaters.

Haunted Halloween: Crazy Cape

No self-respecting Halloween witch would be caught out under the moon without three important items: a flying broom, a pointy hat, and a kookie cape. Turns out flying brooms are rather hard to come by, but we have you covered on the other fronts. Today: the cape. Ours is stylishly short and made of witchy wedges cut from Fat Quarters, lined with Green Slime satin, and tied 'round the neck with black velvet ribbons. Ghoulish yet glamourous.

Haunted Halloween: Wicked Apron

It's Halloween season and costume shops have popped up in all sorts of unusual places. We have one in a store front that previously housed a carpet and linoleum company. Everything smells like glue. They have all sizes and shapes of costumes for kids, and there seems to be endless options for buying and making kiddie costumes online. But... what about the grown-ups? If you don't want to be a glamourous vampire, a hot nurse, or Fred Flintstone, you're kinda out of luck.

Haunted Halloween: Jeweled Spider Mask

A little wicked glamour and a wicked little spider make a spellbinding mask. It's what the most beguiling witches are wearing this season; combining spider web construction with a practical soft fleece backing. Your jeweled spider continues to weave its web while you bewitch those who dare to cross your path.

Haunted Halloween: Ruffled & Reflective Tote Bag

Why must Halloween totes only come in the shape of big plastic pumpkins? Surveys say ghosts, ghouls and well-dressed witches overwhelmingly prefer a beautiful bag. Whether you're carrying magic pumpkins and eye of newt, a few spell-binding books, or oodles of Halloween candy, this tote is the perfect choice. Raw-edged ruffles made from Jelly Roll strips decorate both sides along with a bright strip of reflective tape to catch the beam of a headlight or flashlight. Fully lined, it's just as pretty inside as out.
