Kids love to play dress up, so why wait for Halloween to buy costumes? Costumes can make a great birthday present, and kids can even dress up to match their theme for some extra fun. Costume Super Center is a great website for finding costumes for the whole family.
The have a wide selection of girls and boys costumes. In fact, they had so many to choose from that my son, Jackson, had a hard time deciding on which costume he would like to review. He finally decided on the Prince of Persia Dastan Costume. This brand new costume is inspired by the hit movie and sells for $44.99. You can choose from small, medium, or large and can also purchase additional accessories, such as Dastan's dagger and sword, to help complete the look.
My son was very eager to get his costume, so I was thrilled when it arrived in less that one week! The officially licensed costume included:
3-D armor-like top
Detachable chest emblem
Belt and sash
The quality of the costume is comparable to typical costumes you buy at stores around Halloween except that there were many more pieces than I have seen in other costumes. The material was breathable and light. It will be a great Halloween costume because it can be easily layered underneath for warmth without taking away from the look of the costume. I appreciated all the details to the costume, but since there were so many pieces, it was hard for my son to get dressed without help. The belt was fastened with Velcro, and would not stay fastened. We tried using some safety pins and this worked well to keep it together.The fit was pretty good and true to his normal size of clothes.
The only major complaint I had was the boot covers. They would not stay up at all. Jackson could not walk more than a few steps without them falling down (see picture below). He was not too upset about it, stating he would just wear regular shoes with his costume.
Buy it here: You can shop for all your costume needs from the Costume Super Center website.
