I am in full on Halloween mode over here with the Rae Gun Etsy Shop. The orders are already coming in like crazy. For those of you new around here Halloween is my insane-o season. I just wanted to put up a quick note about important dates just in case any of you are hoping to have me make your kiddo’s Halloween costumes this year.
This year I’m selling Pebbles (traditional and the teen versions), Bam Bam, Pirates, Hogwarts student (pick your house, girl with ruffle or boy without) and House Elf. All of these are for babies and toddlers except the house elf costume I make those in adult and older child sizes. You can see all of them in my costumes section of my shop.
To answer a few questions I’ve been getting lately…
- When should you order? Now. The sooner the better. But see below for cut offs and other dates.
- What size should I get? Whatever size you think your little one will be wearing in most brands when you plan of them wearing it.
- What comes with it? Please read the listing I’ve worked really hard to explain what comes with the price. If after you read it through you’re still confused feel free to send me a note.
- Are you selling Fancy Nancy/French Fries/Something New? I am only selling the items I listed above. But you should know that I’m planning to do a Fancy Nancy tutorial in conjunction with my Handmade Halloween series that starts in September as well as a giveaway to help those of you out that are bummed that I’m not selling those any more. Be sure to follow the blog so you don’t miss it.
Important Dates and Shipping Schedule…
- Orders placed 8/20 through 9/17 will be in the mail 3 weeks at the latest from the date ordered/payment and all necessary info (like size) is received
- Orders placed 9/18 through 10/1 will be in the mail on 10/22 at the latest (on the condition that all necessary information and payment have been received by 10/1).
- I will not be taking any made to order Halloween orders after 10/1. If I have any ready to ship costumes after this date I will list those. But if you really want one order early.
- Halloween is 10/31 and it is a Wednesday this year. If you have a party to go to earlier please factor that in when ordering. If you need your costume by a certain date please message me prior to ordering so I can confirm that is doable AND remind me of the date in the notes section when you check out. US postage usually takes 3-5 days.
