Review: Wholesale Costume Club--With Wholesale Prices!!!

One of my favorite places to shop for costumes is Wholesale Costume Club.  First off, you DON'T have to be a member to purchase from them and get a good price.  However, if you join the club for just $5, you will get member prices, which are even lower.  Standard shipping for members and nonmembers is just $5.99 and expedited is just $7.99.

My daughter likes poodle skirts for Halloween this year so I searched for girls 50s costumes and found this adorable costume shown in the photo.  It is new for 2012

I ordered the Pretty in Poodle Girl's Costume in a size medium (6-8).  The costume arrived and my daughter was tickled with it.  It is very cute and looks like the photo.  However, it does not meet the description of the item very well.  The package says medium 8-9, not the medium 6-8 I thought I was getting (and is way too big for my daughter).  It is a pink dress with a skirt with black poodles and paw prints.  The item description says that the costume includes a "dress, jacket, belt, scarf and headpiece," which is a bit misleading.  The dress, jacket and belt are all one piece.  You can not take off the jacket or belt.  That being said, the item does look like the photo and there is a nice sheer underly to the skirt which gives it some flounce.  It is very cute and well-made, in my opinion, for a costume and especially for the price.

Here is photo of the costume minus the scarf and hair bow:

Bottom line is this--Wholesale Costume is going to probably carry the exact same costumes as other places, but at discounted prices.  So, if you know what you want, this is the place to visit.

And if you are into fifties films, this is the place to shop for all sorts of fun 50s costumes.
