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.

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.
