A few weeks back, I was asked to check out BuyCostumes.com & pick out a costume. BuyCostumes.com has a large variety costumes all year long, as well as tons of accessories. They also carry party supplies & pet costumes too. Since I had already picked out a Halloween costume already, I let my husband look through and see what he liked.
The site is very easy to navigate & you can easily search by costume type, gender, size, price & more. They also have sections of related costumes, like Star Wars, Renaissance & TV characters. On the group pages, you can see both adult and children’s costumes along with all the suggested accessories.
My husband & I literally went through the entire site, taking him about two days. He eventually went with the Tavern Man costume after I threatened him with a Hawkeye costume if he didn’t pick something. The costume consists of two pieces: a lace-up renaissance shirt and pants with laces to tie up the legs.
We received the costume in a few days. The fabric was very soft, yet sturdy. I noticed, though, that part of the fabric had separated from the fake leather strip with the grommets in for the lace. I ended up hand stitching it back together. We also saw that the bottom of the shirt opens up once it on, making it look like you have a big belly. It kept doing it even after redoing the laces. We just left it alone in the end, since we didn’t have time to run out and get safety pins. The pants fit him well, and overall the costume looked good on him. His sister did poke fun at him though just to aggravate him.
Overall, aside from the two issues with were easily fixed, the costume was very nice. The costume was very high quality and we will be able to use it for several years. In fact, I think that I may end up wearing it next year. This particular costume costs $42.99 (+ shipping). The prices on the site vary depending on the quality of the costume. I saw a lot of really good ones, but they were up over $70. You can browse around for yourself at the BuyCostumes website.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
