Between studying for your upcoming exam and running a meeting for your student club’s bedridden president, collegiettes are busy bees and we understand that. That’s why we’ve provided a list of the best Halloween costume sites for you to peruse to be inspired by for your killer costumes this year.

Buy Costumes
Coming in at number one on Top 10 Costumes Sites’ list, Buy Costumes 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. Not only are its costume prices reasonable at 10-30 percent off of retail value, but its shipping prices are just as sensible. Before placing an order, make sure to check up on store specials to save some money!

Costume Super Center
Costume Super Center 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. What we think is the best about Costume Super Center is their same-day shipping policy. As long as you submit your order by 3 p.m., you are guaranteed shipping on the same day!

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. Although prices can get high because of competition with other stores, 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 $8.00 UPS flat rate, no matter how big or how small your order.

Half Price Costumes
Half Price Costumes is just what it sounds like – a site with an array of Halloween costumes, all for 50 percent off. Sound like heaven? We thought so. The catch is Half Price Costumes does not carry as many costumes as some of the other sites. Our advice is to check if Half Price Costumes has something that interests you first before heading over to other sites. Its $3.99 economy-shipping rate doesn’t hurt either. Half Price Costumes often holds clearance sales, so make sure to check for any signs of those on the site too.

Costume Kingdom
Although Costume Kingdom was tenth 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 a bit of good news for collegiettes! Costume Kingdom’s best grade on Top 10 Costumes Sites was for shipping. It received an A- for reasonably charged fast delivery. What more could you want?

Let us know if any of these sites have helped you get ready for Halloween or if you know of other sites that you would recommend to collegiettes!
