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.

Once you've chosen your costume category, you can drill down further by either typing in your theme, or selecting from over 50 different costume themes - such as 60's costumes, Disney costumes, couples costumes, and more. Most costume themes have an excellent selection of costumes to choose from, no matter what your budget.

After you select your costume, Costume Supercenter conveniently shows you related costume accessories that you may be interested in. We found this a very helpful feature, being a helpful reminder and saving us time in searching through lists of other products.

We were also excited about the customer friendly policies at Costume Supercenter. Some of these include:

  • Free and easy return shipping on costume exchanges
  • Free and easy return shipping on size exchanges
  • Same day shipping on orders received before 3:00pm est
  • 6 different shipping methods available
  • Affordable shipping for 1-6 day ground arrival
  • No hassle returns within 10 days.

Costume Supercenter has been in business since 2005. They hold an A rating at the Better Business Bureau, due in part to their commitment to customer satisfaction.

With excellent pricing, a huge selection of quality costumes, super friendly exchange policies and a helpful customer service team, Costume Supercenter should be your first stop for your next costume search. They earn our highest rating.

FIND COSTUME

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.
