  • We've got costume fever! It started with Buwan ng Wika when we listed a couple of online shops for those who don't have the time to put together an original creation. Then parents sent their children's Filipiniana costumes to SmartParenting.com.ph (have you seen this gallery?). So we got inspired to put together another list of online shops for the United Nations Day celebrations on October 24.

    The United Nations count 195 countries as members, so there is a lot to choose from when it comes to inspiration. Remember, however, made-to-order costumes especially with intricate designs take a lot of work. Better call these shops stat because they will need a lead time of three weeks lead time. Stay tuned for our Halloween costume shops!

    Price starts at Php500

    Sinead Style is a Cebu-based online costume shop that makes all types of clothing designs for all ages. It is owned by Ruby Canlas, who just like any other mom, loves dressing her daughter up. This has turned into a passion that eventually became a business. Sinead Style says it gives them pride when a client's child wins the Best Costume award. Manila clients need not to worry because they ship anywhere but shipping fee is to be shouldered by the client.

    How to order: Look for "Sinead Style" on Facebook or @sinead.reese.style on Instagram

Depending on the details and size of your costume, you may have to wait between 1 1/2 weeks to 3 months.

    Tiddletots are known for their tutus, but you can get to make costumes as well. (We're guessing Germany for the little girl's costume in the center?)
