Hello Twitter. I work at a year round, family-owned costume shop called @ChicagoCostume. A few days ago, Spirit Halloween, an $8.9 billion dollar company, placed this billboard within a block of the storefront. 🧵 (1/13)
In response, here is a thread of several spooky items you can only find through a family-owned operation. Starting with: Among Us masks (custom made!)
Movie-quality horror masks from even the most obscure 80s films — plus Slipknot! 🎸
Limited-edition Hans Solo in carbonite replica. This beauty has been here since I started!
A makeup counter featuring a literal gallon of blood... plus my coworker Marlene!
A pride section 🌈
Mustaches, mustaches, mustaches.
A gag-gift section 🤪
The Hype-Vest, my dude 😎 ...starring yours truly.
The rental department! With every coat from the Sgt. Pepper’s cover 🪲
And finally, an entire aisle of wigs featuring the faces of our employees, past and present ♥️
So, what’s the point of this thread? Well, instead of spending your hard-earned cash at a mega-corporation that only pops up once a year... try shopping local! And think global, baby. Happy halloweeeeeen!! 🎃
Wow! Thanks for the love, everybody. To those of you who have asked, yes, we ship worldwide! 🙂
