Like a good zombie (or a good zombie story), a good Halloween costume is one you can't put down. This owl costume and cape have returned year after year.
Satan's cape (McCall's 4139) is interlined with fleece and keeps him toasty on nights when Hell freezes over. It's stood up to nearly a decade of terrifying trick-or-treaters.
Little Owl's costume made its debut in 2008, when it came down to his knees. The sturdy felt construction has come out on top after two years of trick-or-treating and countless hours of indoor flight.
As you'd expect, both costumes show a bit of wear, but not enough to stop their slow march toward terror (or, in the case of the owl, unrelenting adorableness).
