Halloween has become one of the most entertaining holidays of the year. Kids and adults both get to dress up in fun and frightening costumes, attend parties, enter contests, and share in festivities. Halloween costumes themselves have become far more elaborate than the old "bedsheet-over-the-head" ghost of yesteryear.

Halloween costumes themselves have become far more elaborate than the old "bedsheet-over-the-head" ghost of yesteryear. With the advent of the internet, however, you can save 50% or more off traditional retail prices. From the comfort of your own home, you can easily browse hundreds of costumes to find just the one you're looking for.
Buy Costumes has been around for over 10 years and is a very popular online costume store. When we first visited Buy Costumes, we were impressed. And after further exploration of their site and services, our initial impressions were confirmed. This is an excellent Halloween store.
The website is laid out in a very straightforward manner. Departments are listed down the left and across the top. Clicking within a department, you are shown a large number of costume categories. For example, there are 29 adult categories, including Disney, food & beverages, and pirate. For kids, there are nearly 30 categories, including princesses, tv & movies, and witches / monsters. They also have departments for accessories & makeup, hats, wigs, masks, Halloween decorations, mascot costumes, and pet costumes. In fact, Buy Costumes carries over 10,000 items - truly an incredible selection.
Questions about shipping returns, and costume information are easily found. They have a truly comprehensive FAQ section with over 30 answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Buy Costumes offers same-day shipping if you place your order before 4pm cst. You can easily check the status of your order online, a feature that we found extremely helpful. Buy Costumes offers 99 cent standard shipping if you spend $60 or more.
Buy Costumes also has a consumer-friendly return policy. You can return most items within 14 days of receipt. Under most circumstances there is no restocking fee.
The only downside to Buy Costumes is their pricing. When compared to the other sites in our review, their costs tended to be 5-20% higher.
Still, when looking at the large selection, liberal return policy, and easy shopping experience, Buy Costumes earns one of our highest marks.
No more driving from store to store, fighting the crowds, or settling for what's "left over" after all the good costumes have been taken. With the advent of the internet, you can save 50% or more off traditional retail prices. From the comfort of your own home, you can easily browse hundreds of costumes to find just the one you're looking for.
