Hot Halloween Costumes

Boutique caters to plus-size women and their pooches

Bridgewater State Hospital
It's that time of year to transform yourself into a sexy Snow White or a vixen vampiress.
Halloween is Saturday, and if you haven't scored a get up for your fiesta yet, then The Witches' Closet needs to be your stop to shop.
The boutique specializes in costumes just for the gals and their pooches. 

Owned by pals Annette Figuera, 28, and Carolina Ribero, 25, the 2-year-old seasonal Bird Road boutique is brimming with over 100 costumes and accessories.

Ribero said the shop was opened to give women a more personalized shopping experience.

"We cater to women of all sizes from extra small to 4x," said Ribero. "We also have accessories for girls on the budget so they can put together their own costumes."

Popular choices at the shop run the gamut from sassy sailor  to fabulous flapper to innocent and sweet Disney book characters.

Figuera said their Bollywood and mechanic costumes are new and unique to the shop this year.

When it comes to accessories, find eveything from hosiery, petticoats, wigs, hats and boas.

All costumes can be tried on at the shop -- except the ones for Fido.

But, Ribero said they have a size chart to ensure that your 'lil BFF will look spooktacular.

Costumes retail between $19 up to $159.

The Witches' Closet is located at 5786 SW 40 Street. Hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m
