COSTUMES BY SHINDIGZ

Visit Site

Costumes by Shindigz allows you to browse their inventory in a number of ways. First, along the left side of the screen you'll find costume categories - Top 10 Costumes, Top 10 Accessories, Themed Costumes, Disney Costumes, and so on. Clicking on Themed costumes you are presented with nearly 40 different types - from Angels to Zombies, and even including 1950's greasers. Entering any of these theme types, you are presented with thumbnail views of related costumes and accessories - grouped together for your convenience.

If you'd rather search according to the costume-wearer, Costumes By Shindigz provides options along the top of the screen. You can search between 8 categories; Adult, Teen, Child, Infant/Toddler, Pets, Mother/Daughter, Couples and Families. Some of these selections let you further refine your search by gender of the costume wearer. Once selected, all related costumes and accessories are displayed in thumbnail for your review.

Finding the costume you want is fairly easy. We do wish their thumbnail previews were a little larger, however; they're a little too small for our liking. Most of the time we had to click on the thumbnail to see the larger costume, because we couldn't tell much from the thumbnail picture.

Costume prices were competitive among the sites we reviewed. However, the number of costumes provided was less than most other sites. While Costumes by Shindigz provided a good variety, we would love to see more depth to their selections.

In addition to costumes, Costumes by Shindigz also provides links to other Halloween-related items. Click on Party Essentials, for example, and you're presented with a selection of Activities, Favors, Table, Party Apparel, Special Effects, and Treats/Accessories to choose from. Or, choose the Party Décor selection and you can select Balloons, Banners, Decorating Accents, Outdoor Decorations, and Theme Décor. They even have a special Sale link.

If you're interested in throwing a party - not just a Halloween Party, but any kind of party - Costumes by Shindigz gives you a link where your can find tips on over 200 different kinds of parties - from Baseball parties to Winter Olympics parties, and everything in between. This by itself is an incredible resource of information.

Costumes by Shindigz does a good job answering questions, even before they're asked. Under Customer Service you find links to several categories of information, including sizing charts and shipping information. Under the FAQ category, you find answers to 18 commonly asked questions.

Checking the status of your order is easy with their online tracking system. Most orders are sent out within two days of order placement. Costumes by Shindigz also offers shipping deals on purchases over $50 on standard ground orders - a helpful money-saving feature.

In case you're not happy with your order, most items can be returned within 30 days of delivery, minus a 15% restocking fee.

Costumes by Shindigz gets good marks for delivering an enjoyable shopping experience to their customers. With good search options, competitive pricing, and great customer service section, they obviously place a high level of importance on their customers. We wish they could provide more depth in their costume selections and same-day-shipping.
