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.

FRANK BEE COSTUME CENTER

The website offered by Frank Bee Costumes is easy to navigate, if somewhat dated. A variety of costumes are divided into categories along the left side; included are Adult, Full cut, Children, Accessories, Capes, Masks, Wigs, Mascots, Funny Characters, Makeup, and Sale items. Within these categories are subcategories of items. For example, under Adult you'll find 70 subcategories including Arabian nights, flappers & zoot suits, and movies. Under Kids, you'll find boys/girls, Harry Potter, and Barbie.

With so many categories, it sometimes became confusing to find what we were looking for. Scary costumes, for example, are spread out between multiple categories, making it difficult to find exactly what we were looking for.

We were impressed with the large selection of costumes under each category. There are thousands of items between all categories and the selection process is easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it seemed that Frank Bee costumes didn't offer the latest costumes; often we found newer items on the other websites that were missing from the selections here. For the items that were shared, prices were competitive with the other sites in our review.

Frank Bee offers a simple return policy; they are not accepted. Sales are considered final on all costumes and accessories. This is a difficult policy to live with when doing business on the internet, especially with costumes that may or may not fit the consumer.

There is no FAQ section offered by Frank Bee Costumes. They do offer links to shipping information and sizing from their home page, but provide no further assistance online. This is a consumer-friendly service that should be rectified.

Frank Bee Costumes have been doing business since 1957. They offer a large selection of costumes at competitive prices. However, with a nonexistent return policy, dated website, and questionable selection, there are better options for the Halloween shopper.
