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.
Costumes4Less has an impressive selection of Halloween costumes, along with a selection of party supplies, wedding supplies, shoes, and - oddly enough - lingerie. At the time of our review, they carried more than 9,000 costume items ranging from infant to adult, across a wide variety of brands and themes. Prices start at just over $8 and go all the way up to nearly $1,500.
One of the easiest ways to find what you're looking for is to use Costume4Less' Costume Finder, located on their main Halloween Costume page. You can choose to filter their inventory by age range, gender, price, category, or theme. There's also a handy scrolling section beneath the Costume Finder that shows popular costume themes; we did think that some of them were a little outdated (e.g. Powerpuff Girls and Alice Through the Looking Glass).
We thought it was amusing to see a "Wheel of Fortune" pop-up when we visited the site: spin the wheel to get a discount ranging from 1% to 5% on your purchase. Be aware that you'll have to enter your email after you spin, and that the coupon is only valid for 24 hours. (For what it's worth, we spun and got a 5% discount.) You'll want that discount - Costumes4Less' prices were almost always higher than what we found on competitor websites.
Shipping is free on orders of $65 and higher, with a delivery timeframe of up to 8 business days. Expect to pay $7.95 in shipping costs for the first item, $4.95 for the second item, and $3.95 for the third item if your order is less than $65.
One confusing aspect of Costumes4Less' shipping policies is that you have to pay attention to which warehouse your items would be shipped from. When you enter your zip code on the Shipping information section (under the customer service link at the top of the page), you get a table with nearly two dozen warehouses and your expected delivery dates. If you're ordering multiple costume items, it's up to you to figure out if you'll get your items when you need them if they're coming from different locations. That's a layer of hassle that many customers won't like.
Given that the site proudly announces that Costumes4Less has been "online since 2003", we were surprised to see that they have no grade or accreditation with the Better Business Bureau. As we began to read what customers had to say about their experience with this retailer, it became apparent that people are generally not so thrilled with Costumes4Less. The words they most often use are "cheap", "poor quality", and "rip-off" - definitely not what you want to hear when deciding where to get your Halloween costume.
Many customers specifically disliked Costumes4Less' approach to returns: expect a 5% restocking fee and no refund on any shipping charges. If you want an exchange, however, you can do so for free - but with so many shoppers saying that the costumes or accessories they received were poorly made, fell apart when they got them, or were just "off" in general, this exchange policy doesn't seem like it'll do you much good.
For all of these reasons, Costumes4Less failed to impress with respect to Halloween costume shopping. We suggest you take a look at a more reputable retailer for your purchase.
