Disclosure: I received a costume for review purposes. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own and based upon my experience with the product.
The Attic Baby has reached the age where she wants to play "dress up" and I am enjoying every minute of having a girly girl. She is absolutely in love with Disney princesses and has been asking to get a "Pwincess" dress for quite a while. But Disney costumes can be pretty expensive, and an expensive costume just isn't in our budget.
So I was excited to receive one of the girls Rapunzel costumes from Costume Discounters to start our Princess dress-up collection (one of the Attic Baby's favorite movies is Tangled; click here to read more about her).
Costume Discounters offers a variety of Halloween costumes for kids and adults at low prices; they even price match and offer speedy shipping (see site for details). And if by chance your costume doesn't fit, they offer free shipping both ways on all returns and exchanges.
It can be tricky figuring out what size to order a costume online. I took the website's advice and sized up to a Small (fits 4-6X) and I am really glad I did. I think a toddler size (she normally wears a 3T-4T) would have been too tight for her and this has a bit of room for her to grow. The dress is a little long for her right now, but I bunch it at the waist so she doesn't trip over the skirt.
The front has pretty pink ribbons that criss-cross and a Rapunzel Cameo. The back attaches with velcro dots and there is a pretty sparkly overlay on the skirt. It's easy to take off and on which is something important when you have a preschooler who likes to do quick changes. The pink tulle ruffle at the neckline is a bit scratchy so your child will probably want to wear a tank or something light underneath.
So far, the dress has held up pretty well to a rough and tumble preschooler. The material is thin and light, but it is not something that can be tossed in the washer.(spot clean only). My only concern is that the ribbons are delicate and are beginning to fray from being frequently worn and taken on and off.
I love how adorable and happy she looks when she wears her Rapunzel dress and waves her princess wand!
The site even has matching accessories like the Rapunzel wig, tiara, and sparkle shoes. (And you know a girl's gotta have some sparkly shoes to complete her outfit!) The Attic Baby is all about those accessories too so these are next on our list before Halloween rolls around.
If your child loves to play dress up or you're in search of a Halloween costume, Costume Discounters is a good affordable option.
