The Midnight Pumpkin Shop was created by Candy Keane, an avid cosplayer, digital content creator and owner of Three Muses Inspired Clothing. Three Muses started as an online store in 2005, and later grew to a brick and mortar boutique. For over a decade Candy made and sold costumes and corsets in her Three Muses shop, which closed in 2016.

After a long break, during which she founded the blog GeekMamas.com and published the children's book, "I'm Going to My First Comic Convention," Candy rediscovered her passion for all things costumey, and got the itch to open a new (online only) shop.

The Midnight Pumpkin Shop's name was inspired by Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and her magical coach, which turns back into a pumpkin at midnight. The goal is to fill the shop with magical things that inspire people to dress up and enjoy the art of costumes and cosplay.
