HALLOWEEN EXPRESS

Halloween Express has been around for over 20 years and currently holds an A- Better Business Bureau rating.

You will enjoy a well-functioning website and a solid selection of costumes to choose from.

Halloween Express arranges their products by categories and subcategories to help you in your search. For example, in the Kids category they have over 30 different subcategories, including animals, princesses, superheroes, and "new" items for each year. In the adult category they have horror, careers, sexy costumes, and more. When you click on these categories you are presented with dozens of different styles of costumes. Clicking on the thumbnail picture gives you a bigger picture to view details of the costume.

In addition to Adults and Kids, Halloween Express carries costumes for Pets, Couples, and Groups. Halloween Express also offers a good selection of costume accessories, such as hats, wigs, masks, and makeup. Like the costumes, all these items are easily searchable and viewable.

COSTUME CITY

Your first impression at Costume City will not be your last. The site appears professional, well organized and easy to navigate. However, after spending a short time on the site you'll learn that the selection is smaller than our higher ranked stores, the price comparison between competitors is unfavorable and the return policy would leave anyone unsure.

While some companies provide thousands of costumes, that is not the case at Costume City. The selection was much smaller than most of the online stores and harder to find what you're looking for. However, the selection was not our biggest complaint.

Although it's true that Costume City provides a return policy, it's comical at best. In the event that your costume is the wrong size, color or just not the one you want, you have 2 days to call Costume City and let them know. Then you only have 5 days to actually get the product back to them for your money back. Apparently once you order a costume from Costume City the clock starts ticking and the world stops for you to make a decision. Don't plan on traveling if you've ordered a costume from this place. In the event you could actually meet their incredible timeframe restriction, you have several additional hoops to jump through in the process.

In addition, the pricing at Costume City was high compared to most of the competition. We found one costume that appeared to be the exact same and it was $10.00 more. Inflated pricing, ridiculous return policy and poor selection - our best suggestion is to shop somewhere else.
