Hijinks was founded by Rachel Jones and Katie Miles in Los Angeles, California in 2019. Rachel and Katie met in Los Angeles in 2017 and quickly discovered their mutual love for sewing, designing, art and fashion becoming fast friends. During a discussion about their children’s love for dress-up, both agreed that there was a lack of quality costumes for kids on the market. They had been in search of open-ended play costumes made from durable, natural fabrics. Unable to find these types of costumes, they resorted to making their own or buying cheap costumes that disappointed or fell apart. After talking about this shared experience, they had their “aha!” moment and Hijinks Costumes was born. Rachel and Katie combined their design, pattern making and sewing skills and set out to rethink and redesign children’s costumes. What they came up with is a toy that will inspire and be durable enough to withstand hours and years of imaginative play.
