We know what your thinking – with so many options and varieties, how could we possibly choose? Just keep a few simple tips and tricks in mind before purchasing your costume to ensure a smooth and fantastically fun holiday!
The first tip we suggest is to keep in mind a few practical elements; probably one of the most important tips we have to offer is to carefully review certain sizing elements before purchasing your costumes. Reviewing sizing is key to ensuring your Halloween costume fits as it should – to small and you and your loved ones are sure to have discomfort all night; too big and you can lose a bit of the wow-factor! Sizing charts are listed on most all costumes in a Small, Medium, Large, etc. type fashion and also feature an additional sizing section where the exact measurements are laid out for each standard size. These charts are extremely helpful for adult Halloween costumes that cannot be immediately tried on. The same goes for children’s/infant/toddler costumes as well, however, these measurements will most likely follow the month-sizing standard (i.e. infant size = 6 to 12 months). Be sure to check the label before purchasing for adult vs. children’s costume as well; adult costumes can run the same sizes (small, medium, large…) as children’s costumes, but are specified by the word “adult” or “children’s”. And of course, even though some costumes run “one size meets all” be sure to check the lengths and widths themselves!
