Halloween Express Review & $75 GC Giveaway!

Posted by Jenna | Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Can you believe it's October already?! Halloween will be here before we know it, which is why many of us are busy looking for cute costumes for our kids to wear. And, one place I've found has a great selection to choose from is Halloween Express!
Since 1990, Halloween Express has been one of the most aggressive and dynamic Halloween costume and costume accessory chains in the US. They are able to offer the largest selection of Halloween costumes and accessories you'll find anywhere online due to their year-round internet operation and seasonal Halloween costume store retail locations.

I first came across Halloween Express a couple of years ago and have since enjoyed browsing through their large selection of products. With something for every age range, you're sure to find something that suits your style and needs perfectly!

I was thrilled to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review a few of their products and began looking through all of the adorable options for infant and toddler costumes! After quite a bit of time looking through all of the costumes, I decided to go with the Spiderman Costume, Mischievous Monkey Costume, and Belle Costume.
I was amazed with how quickly the costumes arrived after placing the order.

In no time they were on our doorstep waiting to be tried on! Of course, when the kids caught sight of these three costumes, they were begging to try them on. I was just as excited to see what they were like so we got them out to see each one.

First we got the Spiderman Costume out. I have to admit, I was not sure what the quality would be like on this costume, but it really impressed me. The one thing I love most is that it's a one piece costume (other than the mask of course). This makes it easy for Kaden to get in and out of.
The other part which really makes the costume in my opinion is the muscle torso. It's adorable!  You can tell Kaden feels like a muscle man in it! Not only is it super-hero looking, but it will definitely help keep him warm on Halloween as well! I was also happy with the mask. It really completes the whole look.

Kaelyn, being the girly girl that she is, wanted to be a princess. We had looked over the princess costumes, and this one stood out to us not only because it's beautiful, but because the dress would cover her legs. Here in the Midwest, Halloween is usually very cold...making it hard to dress up with layering. Having a longer dress covering her legs will make it easier for her to withstand the cold while she trick or treats.

Of course, what we really love about this Belle Costume is that it's absolutely beautiful! 

I absolutely love the detail on the dress, as well as the unique style. The top is a little big on Kaelyn, but she will most likely need to wear something under it anyways to keep her arms warm so this should not be a problem.
There is a hoop in the skirt which helps it keep its form, giving it a more formal and dressy look. An added touch that I think is very nice. It's not as full as I had expected it to be, but this helps a lot. Once we get the wrinkles out, I think it will lay even nicer.

Kaelyn asks to wear this almost daily. I know once Halloween is over with, she and Kaden will both be wearing their costumes for pretend-play which I think is great!

Of course, I can't forget my little guy and his Mischievous Monkey Costume. 
I was happy with the quality of this costume when it arrived. It's soft, not to mention very warm which will be perfect for a cold evening trick or treating with his brother and sister. It also has skid resistant feet and buttons up the legs for easy diaper changes. Perfect for my little guy!

The head piece is also very nice. Caysen isn't a fan though, and kept pulling it off. I'm hoping the night we take them out trick or treating he will leave it on, as it really completes this adorable costume. One thing I do wish, is that the head piece was attached to the jumpsuit. This would make it a little less tempting for him to keep pulling off I think. 

Overall we've been very impressed and happy with all three costumes and can't wait to see the kids all dressed up and ready to go trick or treating. They are already super excited now that they have their costume of choice!
Of course, these are just a few of the many items Halloween Express has! If you're still hunting for the perfect Halloween costume (whether it be for your child or yourself) and/or accessories. Halloween Express offers a great selection of everything you could need at affordable prices.
