Costume Express Review

My favorite part about Halloween is watching my children’s imaginations and creativity soar when they are wearing their amazing costumes. Costume Express is an online “one-stop shop” that has Halloween costumes for boys, girls and adults as well as party supplies and decorations. The selection is vast with approximately 15,000 products to choose from and the prices are affordable too…..if you are on a budget then I highly recommend checking out their clearance section!

Over the past year, I have watched my youngest son gaze longingly as his big brother dressed up in his favorite Spider-Man Child costume and he has been dreaming of the day when he could dress up as the webbed superhero. His time has finally come as he has his very own Spider-Man Comic Muscle Child Costume for his Halloween costume. This officially licensed Spider-Man costume transformed my three year old son into a webbed crusader who is ready to save the world. This costume is very durable yet the material is lightweight so it will be perfect for trick-or-treating in Florida without him getting overly hot. It fits true to size and it was a lot of fun to watch him flex his arm and chest “muscles”. This costume is sure to get lots of wear well past Halloween and I find it to be an excellent value at only $34.99!

For little girls, my daughter fell in love with the pretty Rubie’s Twinklers™ Light-Up Twinkle Witch Costume that actually has a light up fiber optic dress. Add the fun witch hat and her look was complete! My daughter is turning five and is in the small/average size range and this costume in size child 4-6 fit perfectly with room to grow. The green fiber optic lights are a fun effect that is a really big hit with my kids. It is easy to operate and with the press of a button it will light up for a short time and it can then be reactivated over and over. This costume is another great value from Costume Express at $29.99 particularly since the fiber optics effect is so unique and adds a special touch.

My six year old son is so excited to be a spooky mummy for Halloween and after careful consideration he has declared the Mummified Creature Child Costume to be his favorite. I like that it has that “creepy” factor without being overly scary for a young child. It initially looked like it might be hard to get in and out of this costume but it is surprisingly easy to slip into this two piece set. The mask is a very nice, durable quality and I am confident that will last for Halloween and lots of dress up time after that too. The jumpsuit has nice detailing and it actually does look like it has hanging bandages for the perfect mummy effect.

Costume Express is a treasure trove of amazing costumes for babies, children and adults. The selection of Halloween party supplies and decorations is virtually endless and offers so many choices for your Halloween celebrations. One of our favorite annual traditions is our family Halloween dinner before we go trick-or-treating and Costume Express offers everything that I need to have a memorable party. My children selected the adorable PEANUTS theme for our “It’s the Great Pumpkin” Halloween Bash.
