Tomorrow is the first day of October and you all know what that means, right? It’s time to start the official countdown to Halloween! BOO-yah! I still don’t know what Mae is going to be this year so I’m officially on the hunt. I absolutely adore the look of handmade costumes, but since I don’t have the talent to do the creating I’ve been searching Etsy and other handmade shops for ideas. 
I’ll warn you, it takes quite a bit of hunting on Etsy to find what you’re looking for but there are some awesome costume shops on there so it can be worth it. Handmade costumes can also be a bit pricey, but accessories like animal headbands and face masks make for more affordable options. Plus they’re kinda fun because you still get to put together the rest of the look!
For those of you that are still deciding on costumes, I’ve rounded up some of the best handmade costume shops I found during my search. Enjoy!
Handmade Costume Shops for Kids

1 |  SevenWhiteRabbits: These hooded fleece capes are perfect for Halloween and everyday dress-up. Bonus that you’ll have no problem bundling up your little one for trick-or-treating without covering up any of their costume.
2 |  TheThreadHouse: Creator of the absolute sweetest felt animals ears & tails. {It looks like this shop is on break for a week, but they’ll be open again on the 6th for more Halloween orders.}
3 |  Opposite of Far: This shop should be your go-to shop for felt animal masks. They’re simply amazing and the come in baby, youth, & adult sizes. 
4 |  BHBKidstyle: The felt wing sets in this shop are perfection. A bit of an investment, but would also be fun after Halloween for everyday play.
5 |  Thumbelina Workshop: Love this shop’s zip-up fleece costumes & animal hats for babies and kids. Don’t you just die over this baby pig costume
6 |  MYCOSTUME: Get ready to swoon over every single costume in this shop. Seriously. I’ve been sitting here debating this strawberry costume for two days now.
7 |  Sparrow & B Costumery: This shop has lots of costumes to choose from, but my favorites are the animal hoodies.
8 |  Lovelane Designs: Yes, I featured Lovelane Designs’ superhero capes on the blog last week, but had to include them here as they’d be perfect for Halloween!
