Between studying for that tricky sociology exam and running for student government, collegiettes have almost no free time to shop for Halloween costumes. Don’t worry—we understand that. That’s why we’ve provided a list of the best Halloween costume sites for you to peruse to get inspired for your killer costume (or costumes!) this year.
Coming in at number one on Top 10 Costumes Sites’ list, BuyCostumes.com received A+s across the board for products, prices and shipping. This site can act as your retail Party City at home, but cheaper. It is the largest costume shop on the Internet with literally more than 10,000 costumes for you to choose from. We’re special fans of the animal suits and the superheroes. Not only are its costume prices reasonable at 10-30 percent off of retail value, but its shipping prices are also just as sensible. If you spend $75—which you and your roommates could easily do—you get free shipping. Before placing an order, make sure to check up on store specials to save some money!
CostumeSuperCenter.com prides itself for its variety of costume selection at low prices. Most costumes you find here will be marked down at least 20 percent from retail prices with no catch or special code needed. We also love their same-day shipping policy: As long as you submit your order by 3 p.m., you are guaranteed shipping on the same day! Check out their cute selection of 1920’s-inspired outfits. Party at Gatsby’s, anyone?
3. Frank Bee Costume Center
If you’re in New York, pop your head into Frank Bee Costume Center’s store. If you’re not in New York, its website provides a wide variety with thousands of costumes to choose from. Top 10 Costumes Sites says that the quality of Frank Bee’s cannot be surpassed. Between that and the great service Top 10 Costumes Sites mentions, Frank Bee Costume Center made our list. This site received an A for shipping because of its $8 UPS flat rate, no matter how big or how small your order is. We’re certainly feelin’ this Lady Gaga costume!
4. Costume Kingdom
Although Costume Kingdom was 10th on Top 10 Costumes Sites’ list, it made our top five because of its unique costumes. It offers “many costumes not found elsewhere,” said Top 10 Costumes Sites. Most of its products are fairly priced, while others are at even more discounted prices. Still, all costumes are marked down from their original retail prices. That’s always good news for collegiettes! We’re also loving their Disney costumes. What more could you want?
