Captain America Costume Review from

Can you believe that Halloween is less than two weeks away?! With four children to get costumes for every year, well it can be a little scary. There have been plenty of years where my boys have used hand-me-downs either from their older brother or from older cousins. This year, however, we needed three new costumes. Every year we do a theme with our boys. Last year, and pretty much ever year before that, they were all Star Wars characters. This year we decided that since they love Marvel super heroes so much and we already had masks and helmets, that they would each be a Marvel comic book character. My oldest decided to be Captain America, the twins wanted to be Thor and Iron Man and the toddler is going to be Spider-Man (hand-me-down).

WholesaleHalloweenCostumes has a wide selection of costumes for everyone in your family. I was particularly impressed with the various kids costumes they had in stock. We were sent the "Boys Classic Muscle Captain America Movie Costume" to review for my six year old. This was our first time ever using the costumes with muscles so I couldn't wait to see how he cute he looked. While I waited for that to arrive, I headed to buy local party store to look for costumes for the twins. While there I noticed that the prices were about $10 MORE than the prices on Wholesale Halloween Costumes. That is a pretty significant difference, especially when shopping for multiple kids. I grabbed an Iron Man costume but then decided to go back home and order the Thor costume from I placed my order late on a Friday afternoon, October 7, and paid for expedited shipping. Once my order was placed it said the costume would arrive guaranteed on October 11. Their shipping is awesome and fast! I can't tell you how surprised I was when it arrived a day early on October 11 which was also Columbus Day.

The Captain America costume comes with a jumpsuit with muscles in torso and arms, attached boot tops and a character hood. The shield is sold separately but luckily we already had one. My son loves this costume! I ordered him the Medium which fits boys size 7 - 8. I was a little nervous about the sizing as he currently is at a stage where 6 is either too small or just good enough and 7 is too big. So I was worried that this costume was going to be huge on him. Thankfully it fits great. The length of the torso is perfect and the legs are only a little long, which is good because that means he can use it for dress up for a while. I really like the muscles as they are subtle and look so cute. He put this on within minutes of the UPS man dropping it off and he was walking around flexing and telling me to look at his muscles.

He has since asked me to wear this every day when he gets home from school. So once he finishes his homework he puts this on and runs around the house with his brothers. We also dressed the boys up and brought them down to New York Comic Con recently and he had a blast showing himself off. Countless people stopped to take pictures of my little Avengers. You can also see the Thor costume I ordered from in the Comic Con photo (hammer not included).

Avengers Assemble!
I was so very pleased with both my review and shopping experience. The quality of the costumes is wonderful and with the lower prices and reasonable fast shipping, is definitely a site I recommend for your costume shopping.
