Trick or Treat, By Design

Crazed as their multibrand lives are, these designers aren’t about to miss out on what might be their favorite assignment of the year: designing their children’s Halloween costumes. While Kelly Wearstler prefers to style her sons’ costumes, others, like Tina Lutz — whose son Lou decides on next year’s costume every Nov. 1 — go the extra mile to ensure the finished product is just so. “This year Lou and I went fabric shopping together,” Lutz said. “I showed him a few things and he would say, ‘No, I don’t like that.’”

More on the genesis of this year's costume: “Lou wanted to be a bat this year. He was very particular. I was kind of impressed. He wanted a fuzzy hoodie with wings attached underneath, a hat with bat ears sticking out and a V-neck with mini bats to make it look more like a superhero. For the wings to bend, we wound up using a mixture of straws and electrical wire. The orange spider costume I made for him a few years ago is in the toy bin he plays with when kids come over. I’m sure the bat costume will wind up there too.”
