Halloween Costume Store Reviews

4 stars
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.

Extreme Halloween Network

EXTREME HALLOWEEN NETWORK Visit Site

Extreme Halloween Network 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 Network 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 Network 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 Network 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 Network 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 Halloween Network is 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 Network 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?
