Beauty and the Beast Costumes


The tale of the Beauty and the Beast goes back a long way – all the way back to 19th century France. The version almost everyone is more familiar with is the Disney animated film from 1991, which was a bit more child friendly and was very well received by all audiences.

However, in the summer of 2017, Disney released a new take on the same story, this time in live action. It featured Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. With these new designs, people were excited to see new versions of characters that they had seen for years, so they made for some great Halloween costumes.

But this year, there are more Halloween costumes being made based on horror movie characters...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costumes


The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were first introduced to the public in the mid 80s. Kids of all ages loved these teenage crime fighters and the popularity of the characters soared.

There was a huge clamor for merchandise featuring these characters including dolls, figurines, bedding, Halloween costumes, and more. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Leonardo is the leader of these heroes.


This character is named after Leonardo da Vinci. He’s the one who tries to keep his brothers in line. As a hero, he carries a badge of honor and he likes to be the responsible one in the group.

Being the leader of a group often results in disagreements and this hero has more than his fair share of those with Raphael. The Leonardo doll wears a blue mask and comes with ninja weapons.
