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.

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.

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?
