Pssssttt… We’re only 2 months away from Halloween! Have you seen the new costumes out for the 2014 Season yet? I just had to get you the insider info and had a ball trying on some of the new designs! I was like a kid inside a candy shop and if my photographer (my Son Diego) would let me try on the full line and spend the full day there I would have!
A HUGE Thank you goes out to Dora Munguia-Alfaro, Marketing Manger for Halloween Club. She was such a great host and was just as excited about this feature as I was!
Halloween Club has been becoming the “super store” for over 30 years. It’s your one stop shop for Halloween enthusiasts and cosplayer’s craft haven. I also spotted themed party supplies too.

As you may have experienced, Plus Size costumes are difficult to find in stores. We can order on line and hope we selected the correct size and not deal with returns/exchanges. Well this is why I have been a loyal customer of Halloween Club. It has two locations open all year long – which is great when attending a costume party off season. During my visit to the La Mirada, CA location they were hard at work stocking 1 1/2 isles with great Plus Size costumes and accessories for BOTH Men and Women. They have isles and isles full of general costume accessories and decorations. They carry a large selection of costumes for the whole family – from babies, children, young and old as well as pets!
The staff is friendly and they will help unpack the sample costume you can try on. I recommend wearing clothing you can keep on to slip the costume on as there are no changing rooms. I wore my FATkini but can easily wear a tank top and thin cotton shorts. The sooner you visit them the better. I’ve gone there for last minute makeup/supplies and have seen 100’s of people piling in through the isles and a wait time for a staff member to help locate a sample to try on. Remember the early bird gets the worm!
If you’re an early bird Halloweenie – Like ME – then you should attend the “Beauty & The Creep” Costume Fare being held on Saturday, September 20th at the La Mirada location! I will be there and am happy to meet you in full Halloween costume. Ha!

The following are my pictures of the new designs I tried on. Our camera had technical difficulties and not as clear as I wish them to be BUT the stock photos are also below.
Measurements: 47 – 42 – 53 Height: 5’0
Maleficent Costumes: Size 1X *Wings sold seperately
I recommend the Size 2X for my measurements as material has no stretch.
Day of the Dead Dress: Size 3X
It’s a GORGEOUS dress and would wear it out for special Mexican events. It is roomy and comfortable.
Mad Hatter: Size 1X *Sorry I forgot to pull the teal material bodice down but still looked cute!
The costume is comfy and roomy. Comfortable to wear and such PRETTY colors. This too I would wear out in the regular world (Minus the accessories of course.)
Knight: Size 3X/4X
This has a slit on the side but fit me a bit big. I recommend the 1X/2X for my measurements and height. The material is very stretchy and shiny. I would love the hoody part as an every day accesory in that material. It looks just like chain mail.
Dorothy 75th Anniversary Design: 3X *Sorry our camera was acting up with this full body pic
This dress is SUPER flattering. I would wear it for every day use too! Material has lots of stretch and is roomy. All I was missing were my ruby slippers and Toto!
Arrow: Size 3X
I look the sexiest in this piece. The material has lots of stretch and very comfortable to wear. I would add a short petticoat for an extra full skirt. All I needed was my bow and arrow.
Wicked Red Riding Hood: Size 3X
This costume is gorgeous! Great details and contrasting materials used really brings out the color and design. I did a full shoot at home and glad I did so, as the pictures came out beautiful.
This costume comes with the long red cape and the matching food napkin to cover your basket *Basket is NOT included.
The dress is a sleeveless one piece with the faux corset sewn directly to the long dress. The corset piece wraps around your side torso a few inches from the front and is the solid red dress material on the back.
*See pictures below .
Which is your FAVORITE piece?? What are YOU dressing up as this Halloween?
