The Gruesomest Holiday Windows Ever

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

This very important distinction we award to New York Costumes, a shop on Broadway at East 11th Street that is usually the go-to place for any sexy outfit needs (sexy elf, sexy jailbird, sexy governor, etc). To compliment their year-round slice of Halloween, NY Costumes often injects other seasonal displays with random horror props.

Christmas can't keep the ghouls away this year, as they've set up scenes like The Grinch with his sexy mannequin elves and the Hansel and Gretel witch grinning at passers-by. Worst of all, if you can bypass the Stormtropper and Nutcracker, is the skeletal teddy bear with the evil glare. These are things you will never see in the window at Macy's; perhaps in an alternate retail universe.
