    Jan Halvarson

    Get it at Chef Onesie, $32

  • Crochet Penguin Hat 3 of 16

    "We bought the crochet penguin hat three years ago for my son's handmade penguin costume because we could never make a penguin hat as perfect as this one. Not only did it make his costume, but he continued to wear it as a winter hat ever since. After countless washes and years of use, it's still in incredible condition!"

  • Red Cyclops Monster Pouch 5 of 16

    "Who wouldn't want to be sporting this monsterific pouch everywhere they go? I love the bright color, the spooky eyes, the fluffy fur, and the Halloween fright it might give to those around me. Perfect for the upcoming holiday!"

  • Vintage Lab Glass Bottle with Stopper 6 of 16

    "Whether you're recreating Frankenstein's laboratory or putting your Halloween candy on display, this set of vintage apothecary jars would make the perfect Halloween accessory. The jars were originally part of a chemistry set in a 1950s science lab, but you can repurpose them as spooky decorations. I'm thinking about filling them with fake taxidermy skulls and other creepy items you'd find in a laboratory."
    Rebecca Ricks

  • DOCTOR WHO Tardis Police Box Dress 7 of 16

    "Doctor Who stuff is all over Etsy, but this dress is exceptionally well done. The TARDIS printed fabric even has a very slight reflection of Big Ben in the windows! I'd wear it with Converse shoes, obviously, and set my phone ringer to the TARDIS noise."
    Kayla Moncur

    Get it at smarmyclothes, $149

  • Temporary Eye Tattoos 8 of 16

    "I think these are a fun way to get a great makeup look for Halloween with very little know-how or skills. For instance, if you were dressing as a cat for Halloween, this would be fun eye makeup to go with it! You can also cut them up to use as you wish, for example, or you could create a mask of sorts with a few of these lace temporary tattoos without worrying about makeup smudging!"
    Maegan Tintari


    Get them at cclstore, $4-$20

  • Golden Yellow Lace Knit Crown Headband 9 of 16

    Lauren Hartmann

  • Halloween Tree Wall Decal 10 of 16

    "I love the idea of adding removable decals to a wall for Halloween. I can create an entire scene or a small vignette like the little mouse and hole in the wall. It doubles as a mini photo booth as well!"
    Ashley Hackshaw

    Get it at trendypeas, $39

  • Hooded, Fur Halloween Costume for Dogs 11 of 16

    "It's uncanny how much my dog Bella resembles an Ewok. This Halloween, I'm planning to make it a reality by dressing her up in an Ewok dog costume! Now all I need is the coordinating Princess Leia outfit."
    Jeanette Scott

    Get it at sewdoggonecreative, $39.99

  • Fox Cub Kids Costume Dress Up Tail and Mask 12 of 16

    "I'm partial to the fox cub and would buy this mask if I knew my son wouldn't rip it off right away. The day before he was born, my husband and I saw a fox in different parts of town around the same time. We joke that it's his spirit animal!"
    Melanie Blodgett

    Get it at BHBKidstyle, $32.08

  • Handmade Turquoise Parrot Costume 13 of 16

    "Halloween can be chilly here in the Midwest, so Thumbelina's super warm, handmade baby costumes are the perfect fit for tiny tots! Bee was this parrot last year, and we just couldn't stop smiling at the cuteness. Who doesn't love a baby dressed up in a furry, warm animal costume?"
    Erin Loechner

    Get it at ThumbelinaWorkshop, $55

  • Beautiful Decay Book Collection 14 of 16

    "I love typography and old books, so the idea of using stacks as decor for Halloween really speaks to me. In fact, I would leave these on a shelf year-round."
    Jacinda Cannon Boneau

    Get it at beachbabyblues, $65

  • Harry Potter-Themed Happy Halloween T-shirt 15 of 16

    "Since I had my kids, I've put all my time and energy into their Halloween costumes, and by the time the big day rolls around, I realize I have nothing to wear! I'm not a big fan of dressing up, but I like to wear something festive for the holiday, and this top fits the bill perfectly. It's cute, simple, and has a super-flattering half sleeve. I would totally wear this with a black-and-white striped skirt or my orange corduroy skinnies for a fun, modern mom Halloween outfit!"
    Merrick White

  • Black, Silver, Gold and Orange Cake Topper Flag 16 of 16

    "I love Halloween, and the decorations I like the most are those that have a dark and spooky look that still retains a bit of pretty and a touch of elegance. I love this cake flag because it has a spray of glitter and cool hand lettering that make it fit that look perfectly!"
    Cyd Converse
