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.

Trendy Halloween

TRENDY HALLOWEEN

Visit Site

California-based Trendy Halloween wants you to be the talk of the trick-or-treat on your street. From the newest animatronics to the most-wanted costumes, their selection rivals the best in the business.

Finding what you're looking for is easy on the Trendy Halloween site. If you already have an idea of what you need, click in the search box at the top of the page where it says "Fear not!" Otherwise, use the categories at the top of the page, keeping an eye on the drop-downs for more specific options. These categories include:

  • Adults
  • Teens & Tweens
  • Kids & Babies
  • Group & Couples (including Parent/Child sets)
  • Decorations
  • Accessories
  • Brands
  • Trends

Once you've selected a category, the images in the results make it easy to see what they have to offer. You can also look on the left-hand side of the page to sort the results even further, especially if you're looking for a specific character or theme.

Prices are definitely competitive at Trendy Halloween. We checked several of this year's most popular costumes for adults and children and found that TH always had the lowest price. Also, if you click on the link at the very bottom of the page where it says "College Student Discount", TH offers an additional savings of 15% for signing up for their Geekary newsletter; it looks like that discount may be available even if you're not a student.

With respect to shipping, what you'll pay depends on several factors. If your order is over $49.99 and weighs less than 6 lbs., you'll get free shipping within 3-7 business days. But, if your order is less than $50 or weighs more than 6 lbs., expect to pay a minimum of $10.99 for shipping. Trendy Halloween explains that this is to help cover their costs on some of the larger items they carry, like animatronic decorations, but it could be frustrating for a customer to have to try and place an order that meets the requirements for free shipping.

We were also less than impressed with this retailer's exchange/return policy, compared with their competition. Trendy Halloween does not offer any exchanges, period: you'll have to return the item for a refund and then place a new order, assuming the costume is still in stock. In order to return a Halloween costume, you'll need to get a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) within 14 days of delivery; you'll then have 20 days to get the costume back to Trendy Halloween.

On the plus side, Trendy Halloween has a great reputation: an A+ rating as an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau, lots of followers on their various social media channels, and numerous compliments from shoppers who said that the customer service department handled issues in a pleasant, prompt, and efficient way.

We also really like the way that Trendy Halloween focuses on - you guessed it - the hottest trends for the current year. They maintain a Pinterest board called "SpookBook" for each calendar year, showing the most popular costumes, accessories, and decorations - helping even the most clueless Halloween shoppers to be on point. You'll find all of the items from that SpookBook in the link right on the main page.

Overall, Trendy Halloween is a solid place to shop for your Halloween costume, costume party, or decorations. Just be aware that shipping costs may be higher than some of the other retailers in our review, especially on heavier packages.

FIND COSTUME

Visit Site

Advertising that we could "find the perfect costume in half the time", we were hopeful that Find Costume would help us do just that. And, with a perfect A+ rating at the Better Business Bureau under FC's parent company, Future Memories, we expected an excellent experience. We were disappointed.

Yes, prices are low at Find Costume. We found that the costumes they carry are usually the same price as or lower than what their competitors are selling. Also, at the time of our review, there was a coupon code at the top of the page offering a discount of 5%.

Find Costume's selection is average. We looked at the page showing the year's top costume trends and found several costumes that were outdated - definitely not this year's hottest costumes. We also saw on the main page showing group costumes, one of the featured costumes was for a children's TV show that has been off the air for several years, and not likely to be a theme that adults today would want to wear.

What about shipping? How does Find Costume compare? That's a great question. FC has no posted shipping policy, leaving it as an unknown until a shopper actually puts something in the cart and enters their shipping information. We found that on a $20 costume, the shipping costs were $6.95. When we increased our order to $60, the shipping costs were $8.95. There was no way to know how much Find Costume charges for orders of other sizes, short of putting more items in our cart.

Find Costume's return policy is not customer-friendly. If you buy a costume in the month of October, it is non-returnable, no exceptions. Any other time of the year, you'll pay a 20% restocking fee - or a 10% restocking fee if you want an exchange instead. And, by the way, there are no returns or exchanges on "masks, hats, costumes with hats, bodysuits, shoes, costumes with asks, or mascot costumes".

What's worse, Find Costume has a disclaimer that blames the manufacturer if the costume you receive isn't like what's pictured on the site. We found one customer review describing how she ordered a firefighter costume for a boy made out of plastic/neoprene materials and instead received a toddler-sized costume made out of polyester - but Find Costume accepted no responsibility for the difference from what they advertised.

Shopping for your Halloween outfits at Find Costume could be a scary experience, full of tricks and few treats. We strongly recommend you consider a better-ranked retailer for your Halloween costume shopping.

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?
