Spirit Halloween

SPIRIT HALLOWEEN

Visit Site

Spirit Halloween is an extension of the Spirit Halloween retail stores. Those stores have been in existence for over 25 years. Their retail stores are only open in September and October, however their online store is open all year.

Their success in retail stores is not lost on the website. Visually, the site is friendly and fun. On the home page you find a variety of colorful links to other Halloween-related areas. They also provide you with a zip code search box, where you can find the retail store nearest you.

Along the left side of the screen they display 12 different categories of items to shop for, including men's costumes, couples costumes, and baby costumes. Within each of these categories you have further subcategories to search, which make finding the costume you want a snap. Along the top of the screen they give you the same categories, so no matter where you are on the site, you can always search by category.

If you've ever visited a Spirit Halloween store you're instantly impressed with the selection and organization of the selections. Perhaps not surprisingly, the online site is very similar to the stores. We liked that you can find a selection of costumes here not offered by other stores.

Orders placed by 12:00 noon EST are usually shipped same day. Once an order is placed, a confirmation email is sent to the buyer; within this email is a link so that you can track the status of your order online. While not as convenient as some of the other sites, nevertheless they do give you online tracking information.

Spirit Halloween allows you to return most costumes as long as they are unopened and in their factory-sealed packages within 21 days of purchase for a full refund. This is acceptable if you change your mind after placing the order; however if you open the package and try the costume on, only to find it doesn't fit, you cannot return the costume.

Spirit Halloween offers an FAQ link directly from their main page. This section only contains answers to 6 of their most commonly asked questions. However, their customer service section is quite extensive, with 8 different areas of information.

In addition to costumes, Spirit Halloween also offers some other fun Halloween areas. They provide links to Halloween-related Recipes, Crafts, Games, and Party Tips. While not extensive, they do provide a more fun holiday experience than just offering costumes.

In all, Spirit Halloween is a fine extension of the Spirit Halloween retail stores. With a user-friendly website, great prices, and an extensive selection, Spirit Halloween provides a good choice for your Halloween costume needs.

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?
