Halloween Masks Predict Presidential Race for 8th Campaign

Presidential Candidate Masks
Congrats to our President on another 4 years. Once again, the presidential candidate mask sales accurately predicted the winner of the presidential race. Barack Obama masks outsold Mitt Romney masks, not just in our business, but for the industry. Since the 1980 election, the top selling presidential candidate mask was also the winner of the presidential campaign.

Important Trick or Treat Message

Important Trick or Treat Message

In a few days, a lot of creatures will visit your door. Be open minded. The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy might have poor fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy might have motor p
lanning issues. The child who does not say "trick or treat" or "thank you" might be painfully shy, non-verbal, or selectively mute. If you cannot understand their words, they may struggle with developmental apraxia of speech. They are thankful in their hearts and minds. The child who looks disappointed when he sees your bowl might have a life-threatening allergy. The child who isn't wearing a costume at all might have SPD or autism. Be kind, be patient, smile, pretend you understand. It's everyone's Halloween. Make a parent feel good by making a big deal of their special child. ♥

Halloween Costume Tips

See Halloween Costume Tips from Shari McConahay in Better Homes & Gardens!

1. Read the fine print.
Know exactly what costume pieces and accessories you're getting before buying. "We're really careful to list and detail everything that is included so there are no surprises," says McConahay, who is vice president and co-owner of As with any consumer goods, read the return and exchange policy before making a purchase.
2. Predict the weather.
Before you buy, think about what the weather may be like on October 31. Leotards and tights help little girls stay warm underneath a skirted costume, McConahay says. For boys or girls, long sleeve T-shirts under their costumes add a layer of warmth.
3. Know the right size.
"Keep in mind that a children's size 4-6 is the clothing size, not an age range," McConahay says. For any costume on, the sizes of women's costumes are based on dress sizes, while the sizes for men's costumes are based on jacket sizes.
4. Buy early.
Don't wait until the last minute to purchase a Halloween costume, especially if you're ordering online. "Baby costumes are always bought early," McConahay says, "If you do buy early, calculate the age the baby will be on Halloween and buy the costume based on his or her expected size. "This goes for all infants and kids, too." And don't wait to find costumes for teens and adults, McConahay says. Those go fast as well.
5. Try it on.
Take the costume out of the bag well before October 31, just in case it doesn't fit. Steam or iron the costume before wearing it. "Treat a Halloween costume like an outfit for a special event," McConahay says. "That's the way to make the most of it."
BONUS TIP for BLOG Readers:
Makeup Tip: Do a practice run with your makeup. Halloween makeup can be detailed and even complicated, but practice makes perfect! Usually there is enough makeup for more than one application, but you might want to purchase enough to ensure that you can practice. It doesn't have to be a waste, use the opportunity for some great photos to share with friends! Start getting ready early for your Halloween party or event, just like you would for any other special occasion you get dressed up for.
Most importantly, have fun and be safe!
Happy Halloween!
