Halloween has become one of the most entertaining holidays of the year. Kids and adults both get to dress up in fun and frightening costumes, attend parties, enter contests, and share in festivities. Halloween costumes themselves have become far more elaborate than the old "bedsheet-over-the-head" ghost of yesteryear.

Indeed, in retail stores you can find yourself spending hundreds of dollars on just one costume.

Halloween Costume Store Reviews

3.5 stars
Buy Costumes

BUY COSTUMES Visit Site

Buy Costumes has been around for over 10 years and is a very popular online costume store. When we first visited Buy Costumes, we were impressed. And after further exploration of their site and services, our initial impressions were confirmed. This is an excellent Halloween store.

The website is laid out in a very straightforward manner. Departments are listed down the left and across the top. Clicking within a department, you are shown a large number of costume categories. For example, there are 29 adult categories, including Disney, food & beverages, and pirate. For kids, there are nearly 30 categories, including princesses, tv & movies, and witches / monsters. They also have departments for accessories & makeup, hats, wigs, masks, Halloween decorations, mascot costumes, and pet costumes. In fact, Buy Costumes carries over 10,000 items - truly an incredible selection.

Questions about shipping returns, and costume information are easily found. They have a truly comprehensive FAQ section with over 30 answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Buy Costumes offers same-day shipping if you place your order before 4pm cst. You can easily check the status of your order online, a feature that we found extremely helpful. Buy Costumes offers 99 cent standard shipping if you spend $60 or more.

Buy Costumes also has a consumer-friendly return policy. You can return most items within 14 days of receipt. Under most circumstances there is no restocking fee.

The only downside to Buy Costumes is their pricing. When compared to the other sites in our review, their costs tended to be 5-20% higher.

Still, when looking at the large selection, liberal return policy, and easy shopping experience, Buy Costumes earns one of our highest marks.

Anytime Costumes

ANYTIME COSTUMES Visit Site

Anytime Costumes provides a well organized site to easily search through their costume inventory. You may choose from adult, kids, plus size, accessories, wigs, masks and more. Within each category you may further define by age (for kids), theme, character, movie, and holiday.

Anytime Costumes appears to only carry the higher end versions of costumes. While some sites carry a range of the same costume allowing customers to choose what fits best in their budget, Anytime Costumes has mainly the deluxe version. While the quality is there, the cost and value of a one-time wear may not be worth it. The overall quantity of costumes is limited across all categories, reducing the likeliness that you'll find exactly what you're looking for.

The return policy does not exist. In place of that, you may exchange the costume for a different size, or something of equal value - within 3 days of receipt. Another not-so-friendly aspect of Anytime Costumes is the shipping costs. UPS Ground costs $8.99 - one of the most expensive across our lists of costume stores.

Overall, limited selection, higher priced costumes, no return policy and expensive shipping leave Anytime Costumes falling far behind. We couldn't find any good reason to shop at Anytime Costumes.

No more driving from store to store, fighting the crowds, or settling for what's "left over" after all the good costumes have been taken. With the advent of the internet, you can save 50% or more off traditional retail prices. From the comfort of your own home, you can easily browse hundreds of costumes to find just the one you're looking for.

When shopping at different online Halloween costume stores, you want to consider a few factors. Some of these include:

  • Selection.  Some stores have thousands of costumes available; others may have just a couple hundred. The more costumes they have, the greater chance you'll find what you're looking for.
  • Cost.  Even among online stores, costs vary widely. You want to find a store that reliably has low prices, passing the savings on to you.
  • Customer Service.  Do they let you check the status of your order online? Answer your questions in a FAQ section? Provide support after the sale?
