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.

Costume Craze

COSTUME CRAZE Visit Site

Costume Craze has a clean, easy site that is loaded with information but still effortless to use. And with thousands of customers to browse, they offer one of the largest costume selections in our review.

They start by prominently featuring their customer service hours at the top of the page. We found this very helpful; most sites have this information buried somewhere 2 or 3 levels down from the home page.

Down along the left side of the screen they list 20 costume categories, including cartoon characters, superheroes, and teen costumes. Some of these links send you to further subcategories; the traditional link, for example, sends you to a page where you can choose from over 40 more categories, including angels, Pirates, and Princesses. Once you reach a final category of costumes, you are presented with a thumbnail preview of each item. Clicking on a thumbnail will present you with a larger view of the costume, although in most cases the thumbnails themselves are large enough for you to easily see what the costume looks like.

Costume Craze also provides you with search options across the top of the screen; here you get to choose from Costumes on Sale, Adult, Teen, Child, Dog, and Shoes. Clicking on these links will let you browse through thousands of costumes at a time. However, we wish they had further provided themes within these categories; in order to see all the adult vampire costumes, for example, you have to manually look through the hundreds of thumbnails within the adult category.

Alternatively, Costume Craze provides a very useful search bar at the top of the home page. Entering information here (like "Vampire" or "Star Trek") quickly takes you to the thumbnail results of your search. When using the search bar, you are also presented with a unique ability to further refine your search with 5 options - Price range, Gender, licensing, Age, and Vendor. Some of these, including price and gender, are extremely helpful when viewing a large number of matches. It would be nice to see these options on all their costume lists!

When looking at pricing, we were pleased to see costs that compared favorably to most of the sites in our review. In fact, on some items Costume Craze had the lowest price of any of our reviewed sites.

Costume Craze provide same-day shipping on most items if the order is placed by 4pm cst. They also guarantee a flat $5.99 shipping fee for standard ground transportation for your order, no matter how many items you buy. That is a cost-savings option for those people ordering more than one costume or a number of accessories. And you can easily check the status of your order online.

The return policy offered by Costume Craze provides a worry-free return policy. This means that if you return the item in perfect condition with all pieces prior to 30 days from purchase for a full refund. If returned after 30 days the company charges a 15% restocking fee and anything left will be in the form of an in-store credit. Clearance items are considered final.

Costume Craze does almost everything right. They have a huge selection of costumes, low prices, same-day shipping, and helpful search options. Overall Costume Craze earns very high marks in our review.

Extreme Halloween

EXTREME HALLOWEEN Visit Site

Extreme Halloween is a family-owned business that has been servicing customers online for over 10 years. That kind of market longevity is to be applauded.

Unfortunately, the Extreme Halloween website looks like it was created 10 years ago. In a Halloween-theme, they make widespread use of blacks, yellows, and reds. These color combinations make the site difficult to read and find what you're looking for. From an organization standpoint, the site looks like a hodgepodge of offerings. The costumes are organized by categories, much like the other sites in our review. However, there are categories listed down the left side, and other categories featured in the middle of the page, but they aren't the same ones. So where do you look to find the costume that you want? You have to hunt through the various categories, fighting the bright colors, until you find what you're after. They do provide a search bar, but that is halfway down the website.

If you can navigate to the categories, you'll find an ample selection. Costumes are grouped by Adult, Child, Teen, Baby, and Plus sizes. Within these categories they have a variety of subcategories; for example under Adult they have 19 groupings including funny, couples, and sexy. They also have an impressive assortment of costume accessory categories; there are several categories of wigs and 26 groupings of masks.

Costume prices were consistently among the lowest we found in our review; it's obvious that Extreme Halloween cares about bringing quality merchandise to their customers at affordable prices. They also offer same-day shipping for orders received before 2pm est.

Extreme Halloween accepts returns on most items if they are made within 5 days of delivery. Returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Returns are not accepted for orders placed between October 15th and November 1st.

Extreme Halloween provides 15 answers to frequently asked questions under their Customer Service area. Many of these answers contain links to other sections of their website with more detailed information. They also supply a toll-free number if you can't find the answers you're looking for.

One of the unique features of Extreme Halloweenis their links to other costume websites. If you're looking for Easter Bunny costumes, western wear, wigs, luau costumes, Mardi Gras costumes, Santa suits, or costumes for cats and dogs, you can find links to them here.

If you can withstand the frustrating colors, confusing organization, and general lack of professionalism, Extreme Halloween has a good selection of costumes and low prices. Their website is need of an overhaul to make it more user-friendly.

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?
