In the last week or so, we’ve had a massive run on our Pawnee Goddess patches — so much so that one of our machines is doing nothing today EXCEPT making those. And many of the people who have ordered them have mentioned to us that it will be for their Halloween costume, which made us realize — it’s almost Halloween! With all of the excitement getting ready for the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, we nearly forgot! We have quite a few patches that can provide the finishing touch to a costume, so I thought I’d do a quick post to highlight a few of them for you.
S-Mart Name Badge
Thinking of doing an Evil Dead / Army of Darkness inspired costume? Our S-Mart name badge patch is the perfect finishing touch! With this one addition, you likely even have the rest of what you’d need right in your closet, making for a fairly inexpensive and easy Halloween costume.
Camp Crystal Lake Counselor
Continuing in a horror movie vein, we also offer Camp Crystal Lake Counselor patches. In fact, this design is available in two variations — the clean version, from when camp is new and fresh and fun. And the blood spattered mid-massacre version, pictured here. Add this patch to a polo shirt and pair it with some khaki shorts or jeans, and you instantly become a counselor at the most doomed summer camp in the country.
For those of you who prefer an Arthurian-themed costume, we have the Pendragon shield. The perfect addition to a surcoat, cloak, or wherever you’d like to wear your heraldic device, and proclaiming yourself the once and future king of England.
Captain Hammer Patch
Another easy one to pull from your closet! All you need is a black t-shirt, some black gloves, and a pair of jeans. Add our Captain Hammer patch to the front of your shirt, and voila – instant costume!
It’s important, though, to remember that Storied Threads is a small business, and all of our patches are made to order. If you do need something for a Halloween costume, I have several pieces of advice.
1) Order NOW.
2) Include Priority shipping. First class is slower, and does not include tracking info.
3) When you place your order, please tell me it’s for a Halloween costume! And if the party you’re going to is earlier than the 31st, let me know that as well. If I don’t know you need it on a schedule, I can’t make efforts to ensure you have it on time.
Happy Halloween, everybody!
