COSTUME KINGDOM

Costume Kingdom provides a visually pleasing Halloween costume website. The site is very well organized with no distracting pictures or colors to reduce the clarity of what you're looking for. You may choose from adult, kids, masks, couples, pet, and accessories. With nearly 2,000 adult costumes, the selection is significant. Costume Kingdom also allows for you to narrow your search by category, gender, size, and theme further defining your search for quick results.

Pricing across the costumes we compared was average to low to average across several of the sites. We would have liked a better selection of teen costumes and a specific category for this age group. We found "young adult" within the adult section of the categories which may create some confusion for some. Also, the kid's selection of costumes was smaller than some of the other sites we visited.

The return policy at Costume Kingdom allows for 14 days from the time you get your order to return it. All items must be returned complete with undamaged packaging and all pieces neatly included. Any orders placed between Oct 14th and 31st are not returnable.

Overall, Costume Kingdom offers some positive reasons to shop - especially for the adult looking for a fair priced costume. The return policy is fair and the free shipping of $50 or more makes this a good site to browse for the adult population.

BUY COSTUMES

Buy Costumes has been around for over 10 years and is a very popular online costume store. When we first visited Buy Costumes, we were impressed. And after further exploration of their site and services, our initial impressions were confirmed. This is an excellent Halloween store.

The website is laid out in a very straightforward manner. Departments are listed down the left and across the top. Clicking within a department, you are shown a large number of costume categories. For example, there are 29 adult categories, including Disney, food & beverages, and pirate. For kids, there are nearly 30 categories, including princesses, tv & movies, and witches / monsters. They also have departments for accessories & makeup, hats, wigs, masks, Halloween decorations, mascot costumes, and pet costumes. In fact, Buy Costumes carries over 10,000 items - truly an incredible selection.

Questions about shipping returns, and costume information are easily found. They have a truly comprehensive FAQ section with over 30 answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Buy Costumes offers same-day shipping if you place your order before 4pm cst. You can easily check the status of your order online, a feature that we found extremely helpful. Buy Costumes offers 99 cent standard shipping if you spend $60 or more.

Buy Costumes also has a consumer-friendly return policy. You can return most items within 14 days of receipt. Under most circumstances there is no restocking fee.

The only downside to Buy Costumes is their pricing. When compared to the other sites in our review, their costs tended to be 5-20% higher.

Still, when looking at the large selection, liberal return policy, and easy shopping experience, Buy Costumes earns one of our highest marks.
