We're heading into the most spirited season of the year, and Halloween is the first treat (no tricks)! Say "no" to out-of-the-package big box store costumes for yourself and your kids, and instead assemble creative ensembles from these #MadeInNewYork goodies.
Giddy-up! This classic Western staple — perfect for any budding cowgirl or cowboy — is actually handmade here in New York, in Chickpea Kid's Queens atelier. Available in Toddler sizes 5-10, and also available in Red & Ivory.
For the toddler who never stops, a fleet-footed Hermes or a mischievous cherub is the perfect costume — all that's needed is a simple toga and these handmade gold winged boots. (They're also a fun and practical wardrobe edition just in time for Winter; consider them dressed-up Uggs.) Made in sizes 5-10, and also offered in Silver and Red, from Chickpea Kid in Queens.
We love cult classic film "The Red Shoes." These lovingly handmade-in-Queens red leather ballet slippers are perfect for the baby who's bound for the stage (or at least for a tutu this Halloween). Pairs are also available in Silver, Gold and Ivory.
For adults and kids alike, go wild (literally) over these handmade, handprinted 100% canvas cloth masks. Sizes are adjustable thanks to the attached ties. Handmade by Lucky Fish in Brooklyn. Offered in Butterfly, Cat, Chimp, Fox (pictured at top), Owl and Raccoon.
