One of the biggest challenges of Halloween is tailoring your costuming desires to the reality of Mother Nature and the elements. There is nothing worse than freezing your butt off while trick or treating, or having to hide your beautiful costume under a bulky coat. My son wants to be a gladiator this year, but you can bet his beloved costume is not going to work on a chilly 50 degree evening. Fortunately, designer Molly Goodall has your back with her inspired critter coats that are both costume-friendly and cozy at the same time.
Little Goodall’s collection of beautifully crafted critter coats turn an ordinary moment of heading into the outdoor chill into an imaginative adventure. Kids who typically eschew donning a jacket will happily cloak themselves in one of artist and designer Molly Goodall’s wearable creature masterpieces. Goodall’s coats were actually inspired by her experience as a mother. When her toddler refused to wear the hoods on his jackets, Molly Goodall conceived a “creative solution” to the problem with a Ferocious Felt Lion coat, in which her little boy was happy to suit up. Admirers started asking for coats of their own, and Little Goodall was born.
A family owned business based in North Texas, Goodall makes all of her coats “lovingly” by hand. Kids will love reaching into their wardrobe to unleash a “Frolicsome Fawn”, a “Fantastic Little Fox,” a “Spotted Leopard” or a “Wild Grey Wolf.” Additional coat designs include lions, bunnies, teddy bears, dinosaurs, and more. The collection also features vibrant butterfly capelets with a hood for little ones who want to dress-up and soar outside. More than just outerwear, Little Goodall coats can double as costumes for Halloween, AND can be worn well into winter — making every day a canvas for make believe.

The collection’s playful sophistication, classic aesthetic and heirloom quality are unparalleled, making Little Goodall coats ideal hand-me-down apparel that will span generations. Made from 100% wool felt, and in some cases, organic cottonsherpa or faux fur, kiddos are sure to stay warm and whimsical on their jaunts while looking positively adorable. Available in sizes for tiny tots to grown ladies (Mrs. Goodall), everyone can get in on the fun!
