I think I've been so focused on getting myself to admit that fall is actually here that I didn't notice October quietly creeping up. However, with the amount of fun that we had for Halloween last year, my girls have pretty much been ready and waiting for the moment that they can pull out their costumes and head out for some spooky fun.
But Halloween wouldn't be the same if all of our friends weren't just as excited and prepared, right? Because what fun is getting dressed up if you don't have your best pals to share it with? So, for us, there was no better place to go to find a collection of thousands of costumes, wigs, masks, accessories and more than Star Costumes.
Now Halloween with one of our favorite people can truly begin since he has been transformed from his usual sweet, loving, 3-year-old self into the coolest superhero around: Spiderman.
Star Costumes has it all. Whether you're looking for an outfit from the movies or television or something scary, cute or sexy, they have a huge selection for adults, teens, kids, toddlers, infants and even pets. If you're looking for convenient shopping, I love the way the navigation links across the top and side of StarCostumes.com bring you right to what you are searching for in a click or two.
So, when it came time to browse the Kids' Costumes, finding Spiderman was fast and easy. There are Boys' Costumes, Girls' Costumes, Disney Costumes... but it was the Superhero Costumes where we struck gold. Originally $54, this officially licensed jumpsuit is on clearance right now for only $27, definitely a bargain.
The durable fabric, bright colors, stretchy mask and padded muscles made this an instant hit right out of the package and even Big Sister E had to get in on the action of being a superhero.
But Star Costumes isn't only for Halloween. The next time you're looking for just the right outfit for the 4th of July, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, a school play or just for dress-up, you'll find what you're looking for at a low, low price. Plus, as most orders placed before 4 pm EST are shipped the same day, it's never too late to choose your favorite costume from Star Costumes and know that it will arrive with plenty of time to spare.
So what are you waiting for? As Halloween draws near now is not the time to go brave the crowds and dig through messy racks of overpriced costumes in the store, it's time to shop online from the comfort of your own home at the time that is convenient for you. With Star Costume's great pictures (I love the zoom feature when you scroll over the costumes to really see the details), high quality and bargain prices, you'll be happy with what you find there.
The hardest part of browsing is, of course, narrowing down your favorites. But, thanks to the generosity of Star Costumes, one person will get to do just that, because...
