Costume Express Review and Giveaway

I love Halloween. My children love Halloween. And believe me, it is different now that it was when I was a child. The excitement is still there for the little ones and they spend all year trying to decide what character they want to be.  I was so excited to get to review a Tinkerbell costume. Tinkerbell is my favorite character and I use the image and name a lot. This costume was beautiful in the picture so I chose it.
This Adult Tinkerbell Costume was just perfect when I opened it. It came with a green dress with an adjustable skirt, armband sleeves, fairy wings, a coordinating pouch and a matching headpiece. The five-piece set was quite a bargain at $44.95 and is available in small to x-large sizes.

The colors were as vibrant as they were on the picture. The seams were true and it was very well made. I guess I am remembering the costumes my children wore many years ago when most of them were made of plastic and so uncomfortable.

I ordered the x-large.  It is so cute. My daughter modeled the dress for me so that I could get some pictures. The dress is snug but has a really cute cut. And the green ringlets in the hair added to the pixie experience. It has a lot of glitter so be prepared to be glittered for a while. But all in all it is a really nice costume.

This is a great company to work with and they guarantee their products. They offer free exchanges. If your costume doesn’t fit, they will pay the shipping to exchange it. They have products for all ages and even have them for pets. Everyone is covered. I would recommend Costume Express to anyone.

Enter this great giveaway brought to you buy The Pitch List and sponsored by Costume Express. is offering a $100 Costume Coupon Code and a $50 Costume Coupon Code.  You will love this.

40 printable Halloween party games

Printable Halloween Games  

I received the 40 printable Halloween party games to review. I chose this review because my children love Halloween. We all love Halloween. There is something about the fall that makes us want to move our activities indoors. The brisk cool days and colder nights make me anxious for Halloween to come.

My daughter wants to have a party this year and I thought this would be a fun way to entertain people at the party.

I downloaded the Halloween printables. The names of each activity made me so curious that I had to look at them all. Even the coloring pages. We use coloring pages for lots of things. They are fun to color but they are also great ideas for decorating cakes.  I will print these out for the little ones at the party. For your own free coloring pages, visit here.  There is even a coupon available.

When we have a party, it usually involves people of all ages. From babies on up. These printable games are designed with different age groups in mind.

I love the colorful illustrations. I like that they have good explanations. I also appreciate that they provide games and pages that can be played alone so that I can enjoy them by myself. A party is just a bonus.

Starting with the invitations that we can print to the scavenger hunt, the entertainment can last for hours. And all forty activities for only $19.95. That is a small price to pay for Halloween fun.

Costume Discounters Pirate Costume Review

Costume Discounters Pirate Costume Review

I received the Adult Costume Discounters Pirate Wench Vixen Costume to review. My daughter was so excited because it was the one she wanted. So I gave it to her. The fit was great. The sizing very near to perfect and the material was a good grade of material. Construction was good. I didn’t see any seams that weren’t perfect.


It is a black and red double lace up corset one piece dress. I love the bright colors and the design was perfect. The off the shoulder sleeves and the ties in the front were very attractive. And the crushed velvet like material was soft. The sleeves were poofy and that long strands that were to be tied into a bow. It added to the design.
The back was nice and the zipper was placed correctly. We had no problems with the dress.

 This was a nice fit for a full-figured woman. It is a very attractive and sexy costume.We got this in extra large but it is available in small, medium and large too.
 I would recommend this costume for Halloween. Order early to be sure and get the costume you want. And check out the other costumes for the family. They have adult,children, and even pet costumes. They stock all the accessories you could want to complete your costume. This can be your one stop Halloweeen shopping place. And delivery is quick.

I was chosen to receive and review a costume. Of course, I had to get one for myself. I have been dressing up for Halloween for a couple of years now and I love it. I sing karaoke at a local bar and it adds to the atmosphere. Crazy for someone who doesn’t drink but I love the camaraderie.

I have a fascination with Tinkerbell and fairies. But the dragonfly wings in this costume caught my eye.  I liked that they have all sizes and I ordered one in a plus size.  I know, I never heard of a plus size 60 year old dragonfly before but now…here I am! Life is too short not to have fun.

The costume arrived in a large box. It felt like my birthday!!! I could hardly contain myself. I tore it open and pulled it out. First thing I noticed was the good quality of the product. I have six children and believe me, over the years I have seen cheaply made costumes.

The colors in the costume and the wings were rich and vibrant. They matched the picture on the front.  I liked that. I  looked at the stitching and it looked like something I might have sewn at one time.  I was still a bit apprehensive about trying it on and taking a picture of myself in it. But that is an important part of the review.

The only problem I had was with the wings. The elastic broke and smacked me in the face. I wasn’t too happy then and I was getting ready to take the pictures. I fastened the wings on with paperclips to hold them in place for the pictures. I think the elastic is too small for the plus size and the wing proportions don’t work for the larger sizes.

I really like the dress and it fit nicely. Sometimes it is hard to get clothes to fit a full figured woman.  I hope you will visit the site. You will definitely be able to find something you like.  

I would recommend this company to anyone. I would suggest buying your Halloween costume early to make sure you get the costume you want. Halloween will be here before you know it. Be sure and check out their webpage.

Enter the contest below for a chance to win a costume of your choosing. The hard part is picking one out. They are all really nice.
