Bought for each of our girlies...including Whiskey our furry girl.

Thats if Kings were ever looking for Halloween schtuff. But if you were looking, and I’ll bet you are, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this, I’d say hop on over to King Cake! These guys are really rockin it in the Halloween department, and they have grown from strength to strength, as each year they seem to have something new. I got a few cool bits for our kiddies recently, and was pretty chuffed with it.

What Im even more chuffed about is that their prices are pretty decent too. A win in my book. In fact, depending on how fast you get your Halloween act together, sometimes you can even get early bird sales. For example, I once got witches broom sticks for 10 bux each(super score, if you know what they normally go for!). That was purely because they were prepping for new stock coming in. And this year they really didn’t disappoint.
I hit up two different King Cake in my neighbood. The one down Raats Drive (opposite Bayside) and the latest addition, at the Emporium Mall, in Sandown Road (where Food Lovers market and N2ice Cream Lab is)
Both are good, but Emporium Mall in my humble opionion seemed to stock a more diverse range of choice. It ranged from the truly gory (that will not be pictured on my blog) to the cute for kids. Most importantly, they stock all the basics- which I think is crucial for all the newbie Halloweeners out there, who are just wetting their toes in the “traditions” of this fun day.

Costume-wise
So witches hats, vampire capes, vampire teeth, fake blood, face paint, luminescent nail polish,wigs, loads of masks,even witch face props are easy pickings there. (Check out the pix below).But bear in mind I DID NOT cover all their costume stock in these pix. I would say pop in at one of their stores or their website a visit for a real feel for what they have to offer.

Cheap masks if you're not willing to spend too much. These were about R17

Gloves, hats, wigs, you name it, they got it!

I have to mention that they have an awesome witch hat selection. So much so, I had to get one (It was actually making me question our choice of Halloween charatecrs for this year – we’re thinking of going as Frankenstein’s Monster, and the Monster’s Bride) And at the decent price of R79.99, I figured it wouldn’t go to waste either way.Check it out.

Brilliant witches hat selection.

They stock loads, from the simplest of things such as pumpkin and skull confetti to pumpkin candy holders, all sorts of Halloween based bunting, to cool fake crows, party pack fillers, life size wall mounts to real gory bits that I eluded to earlier.

You wont be sorry for checking them out. So to give you a bit of a peek into their stocks, here are a few things that caught my eye.

They even starting to move into motorised space. Not wow, but this laughing witch will definitely add some creepy visual and sound effect for your décor.

There is so much more than I have pictured here. So I would urge you, if you’re on the hunt for some decent Halloween décor for your kiddies/adult party, pop in at the local King cake. And if your local one is not in the Parklands area,and maybe not living up to what Im saying here, I’d suggest come on over to our neighbourhood, these guys know a lot about Halloween fun.

Mother of two (and counting),a very happy wifey, blogger, lover of life and laughter, a clumsy swimmer, loyal friend, Im funnier in my head than I actually am, I get inexplicably excited about good food, baking & crafts. Although, I think baking and crafts are just trying to fill a void that my Kenpo and gym-rat days used to fill. Lastly, according to the rest of the world, I fix your printer.
