Scary Boys' Halloween Costumes

Costume SuperCenter

There were several years of our lives when our children spent a lot of time dressed as their favorite TV or movie characters .  They often needed to be cajoled out of costumes and into regular clothing.  I could often be seen grocery shopping with small superhero escorts, and when street clothes were an option, there were always costume accessories involved to make it tolerable.

Although they have figured out that it's not exactly appropriate to show up for an appointment as a movie character or a skeleton, my kids STILL love costumes.  We have a chest FULL of them.  I don't know who was more excited to learn about It might have been them, but it could have been me!

The site has so many costumes to choose from, and the accessories to go with them, and shopping is easy because the site is very user friendly.  In addition to a search box, they have a tab for every age group, as well as separate tabs for plus sized, accessories, hats and wigs.  Once you've made a selection, you'll get another menu with every category.   Look what comes up when I select "boys".

That's a a lot of choices, right?!  And each one has a color photo so you know exactly what to expect.  We were allowed to choose one costume as part of our review.  Their favorites are the scary costumes.  Boy One Asked for a Dementor from Harry Potter costumes.   We placed our order, and within days, it arrived.

What you see:


Is what you will get!

Harry Potter Dementor

He is absolutely thrilled with his new costume.

Of course, Boy Two didn't want to be left out of the fun, so we did some independent shopping, ourselves.  He wanted a Racer X costume from the move Speed Racer.

He cleverly added his own gloves and glasses, but will also add suggested accessories when you are looking at costumes, making it easy to do one stop shopping right from the comfort of your own home -and your shopping is always risk free.  The site will do FREE exchanges on any item AND pay shipping both ways, as long as the costume is unworn and has it's original packaging.

The experience was a very positive one, as both a reviewer, and as a "regular customer".
