With Halloween only three weeks away—exactly—it’s time to start thinking about whether your kid is going to be Charlie Sheen or a mermaid.

At Halloween Secret, which just opened on Bloomfield Avenue, a salesgirl said Nicki Minaj was the most popular costume so far this year.

At Just Kidding Around, a salesgirl said the $59 fireman costume is a bit hit.

Other places to check out for costumes and decorations include Aunt Jean’s Toys and Treats, Grove Pharmacy, and Milk Money.

But what if you want to make a costume? Then you are in luck.

Rock Paper Scissors on Bloomfield Avenue is offering classes designed to create fabulous costumes—both for your little princes and princesses.

On Saturday, Oct. 15 at 2 p.m., a class to help you create a girl’s costume is scheduled. A class for boy’s costumes will be held Saturday, Oct. 22 at 2 p.m.
