Here are a few reasons that it’s worth it to plan ahead to get the best costume for Halloween or any other occasion.
The best costumes are generally the ones that have been well thought out and prepared. If you don’t mind grabbing an inexpensive costume at the last minute from what’s still available on the rack, that’s one thing. But if you want to invest in a good quality costume that you can get repeated use from, you’ll want to think ahead.
Custom Costumes are tailor-made for you, and can take up to a week to ship. Many of our cosplay costumes are custom made , so take a look if you’d like to see some examples of our work.
Deluxe costumes are higher quality. They come with more accessories and are made of better materials, with more attention to detail. A good example is our Stormtrooper Deluxe costume. Some are also rental grade or rental quality costumes. These include Spiderman, Superman, Mummy and a whole host of mascot costumes. They’re all very cool, and many need to be special ordered.
During the Halloween season, it can take several days for an order to ship, whereas the rest of the year we usually ship the same day. Cosplay and tailor-made orders can take up to a week to ship. So if you order ahead, you can make sure you get your costume quickly, once it’s ready.
Also, during Halloween, we don’t accept returns or exchanges of any kind. During the rest of the year we accept exchanges within 14 days (with certain exceptions—see our return policy).
So, you see, ordering ahead helps you make sure you get a costume that fits you properly, that you really like and that you are willing to happily keep and use again!
