COSTUME SUPERCENTER

Costume Supercenter makes it easy for you to find and purchase the perfect Halloween costume. Not only do they have the best selection and best overall prices, they've created a customer friendly shopping experience that exceeded our expectations.

Costume Supercenter offers a wide selection of both child and adult costumes, along with low cost options and a very good plus size assortment. And if you're looking for costume accessories such as hats, wigs, masks, shoes, canes, jewelry, or makeup, Costume Supercenter has a nice variety to choose from.

The well-organized website at Costume Supercenter is easy to navigate, with vivid pictures and detailed descriptions of each costume they offer. You can choose from several costume categories such as Girls Costumes, Boys Costumes, Sale, Infant, Women's Costumes, Men's Costumes, Sexy Costumes, Teen Costumes, and more.

COSTUME CRAZE

Costume Craze has a clean, easy site that is loaded with information but still effortless to use. And with thousands of customers to browse, they offer one of the largest costume selections in our review.

They start by prominently featuring their customer service hours at the top of the page. We found this very helpful; most sites have this information buried somewhere 2 or 3 levels down from the home page.

Down along the left side of the screen they list 20 costume categories, including cartoon characters, superheroes, and teen costumes. Some of these links send you to further subcategories; the traditional link, for example, sends you to a page where you can choose from over 40 more categories, including angels, Pirates, and Princesses. Once you reach a final category of costumes, you are presented with a thumbnail preview of each item. Clicking on a thumbnail will present you with a larger view of the costume, although in most cases the thumbnails themselves are large enough for you to easily see what the costume looks like.

Costume Craze also provides you with search options across the top of the screen; here you get to choose from Costumes on Sale, Adult, Teen, Child, Dog, and Shoes. Clicking on these links will let you browse through thousands of costumes at a time. However, we wish they had further provided themes within these categories; in order to see all the adult vampire costumes, for example, you have to manually look through the hundreds of thumbnails within the adult category.

Alternatively, Costume Craze provides a very useful search bar at the top of the home page. Entering information here (like "Vampire" or "Star Trek") quickly takes you to the thumbnail results of your search. When using the search bar, you are also presented with a unique ability to further refine your search with 5 options - Price range, Gender, licensing, Age, and Vendor. Some of these, including price and gender, are extremely helpful when viewing a large number of matches. It would be nice to see these options on all their costume lists!

When looking at pricing, we were pleased to see costs that compared favorably to most of the sites in our review. In fact, on some items Costume Craze had the lowest price of any of our reviewed sites.

Costume Craze provide same-day shipping on most items if the order is placed by 4pm cst. They also guarantee a flat $5.99 shipping fee for standard ground transportation for your order, no matter how many items you buy. That is a cost-savings option for those people ordering more than one costume or a number of accessories. And you can easily check the status of your order online.

The return policy offered by Costume Craze provides a worry-free return policy. This means that if you return the item in perfect condition with all pieces prior to 30 days from purchase for a full refund. If returned after 30 days the company charges a 15% restocking fee and anything left will be in the form of an in-store credit. Clearance items are considered final.

Costume Craze does almost everything right. They have a huge selection of costumes, low prices, same-day shipping, and helpful search options. Overall Costume Craze earns very high marks in our review.
