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.

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.

Frank Bee Costume Center

FRANK BEE COSTUME CENTER Visit Site

The website offered by Frank Bee Costumes is easy to navigate, if somewhat dated. A variety of costumes are divided into categories along the left side; included are Adult, Full cut, Children, Accessories, Capes, Masks, Wigs, Mascots, Funny Characters, Makeup, and Sale items. Within these categories are subcategories of items. For example, under Adult you'll find 70 subcategories including Arabian nights, flappers & zoot suits, and movies. Under Kids, you'll find boys/girls, Harry Potter, and Barbie.

With so many categories, it sometimes became confusing to find what we were looking for. Scary costumes, for example, are spread out between multiple categories, making it difficult to find exactly what we were looking for.

We were impressed with the large selection of costumes under each category. There are thousands of items between all categories and the selection process is easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it seemed that Frank Bee costumes didn't offer the latest costumes; often we found newer items on the other websites that were missing from the selections here. For the items that were shared, prices were competitive with the other sites in our review.

Frank Bee offers a simple return policy; they are not accepted. Sales are considered final on all costumes and accessories. This is a difficult policy to live with when doing business on the internet, especially with costumes that may or may not fit the consumer.

There is no FAQ section offered by Frank Bee Costumes. They do offer links to shipping information and sizing from their home page, but provide no further assistance online. This is a consumer-friendly service that should be rectified.

Frank Bee Costumes have been doing business since 1957. They offer a large selection of costumes at competitive prices. However, with a nonexistent return policy, dated website, and questionable selection, there are better options for the Halloween shopper.

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?
