CostumeExpress.com (Review)

Disclosure: We received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The boot covers stay in place with a piece of elastic across the bottom (like a stirrup).

I'm excited!!  If you've purchased Halloween costumes in the stores, or even online, you know it can sometimes be challenging.  With four kids, I've had my fair share of ill-fitting, cheaply made costumes that cost way too much for what they give you, and I'm willing to be some of you have too. In fact, it's so common, I half-expect it if I don't have the costume in hand.

In the picture above you can see the thickly padded vest that comes with it, this attaches with Velcro around the waist, and just under the shoulders. 

CostumeExpress.com recently sent us a costume of choice. My son selected a knight, and he was excited for it to come. I thought it was nice that it was coming, but my expectations were not overly high (parents, you know what I mean, right?). When it got here I was surprised!!! It's a great costume: Very nice quality!!  And it's put together nicely too, with thoughtful considerations to make sure it stays looking sharp (like the Velcro under each shoulder to prevent vest sagging).

The hood is lengthy and roomy!

The hood is nice and long, so it comes up over his head nicely (I love that because it will hide the winter hat I know he's going to have to wear underneath it when it comes time for trick-or-treating). You can see it hanging in the picture above. And the 'chains' on the top of the outfit are nicely woven, so I don't foresee them coming unraveled easily.

Note: The costumes run small. My son is 6-yrs. old. He's normally wears a size 7. I ordered a size Medium, 8-10 for this because Halloween costumes seem to notoriously run small, and it was a perfect fit.

If you are looking for a costume for the upcoming trick-or-treat season (or even just for dress-up, or a great gift idea), I can easily recommend CostumeExpress.com. I'm 100% pleased with the costume we received.
