Storybook and Fairytale Costumes
Once upon a time, there was a very puzzled shopper who didn’t know what they wanted to be for Halloween (that’s you). Magically, a fairy godmother appeared (that’s us) and showed the customer how to make their Halloween as enchanting as possible. We pointed a glowing wand to our selection of storybook and fairytale costumes and guided them to their happily ever after. Once they locked eyes with these whimsical designs, they became inspired by all the fairytale costume ideas. So please, take some time to peruse our fairytale costumes until you find the one that sweeps you off your feet. We have a feeling it will be love at first sight!

If your little one wants to engage in (pretend) sword fights and hang out with a group of kids who camp out in treehouses every night, then a Peter Pan costume is the perfect get-up. However, if your son is more prone to living “the pirate’s life”, then donning a Captain Hook costume would be more appropriate. He’ll love using his pirate hook accessory to indicate where to fill his Halloween treat bag.
