Halloween…. though it is a night I am afraid of, I love going out with my children for a Trick or Treat (actually and honestly, It is not love! .…, But you know it! ). I think, I would be one going blind most times than children while we are having fun Trick or Treating… Regardless of how fearful I am, I feel, it is a good way of getting the fear out of the children about the worst nightmares.
As Halloween is fast approaching, We had one other special reason to look for a unique costume, something different from the usual witches and cats. Yes, We had the special VIP invite to preview the Halloween at Chessington before it was opened to the public and we wanted to go with something spooky and stylish.
I never gave a second thought and straightaway browsed Megafancydress and the lovely people at Mega Fancy were happy to send me the costumes for a review. We received absolutely stunning, stylish and skittish costumes to try on.
Here are my (Lovely) little monsters with the costume…
– is just perfect for any girls and they are surely in for a great surprise. DD1 is just 9 but fits for 11 -12 clothing on many brands, but Mega Fancy Dress has got it just right. The 9-10 size was a perfect fit and is definitely a spooktacular costume.
The Costume comes with a Stitch Pattern Top, Tutu Skirt, Glovelets, Veil and the Stitch-Pattern Footless Tights, everything you need to dress up your adorable girl and get her ready for Trick or Treating.
The pattern on the top and the tights are prints and hope they don’t wear off over wash. Usually, the costumes from Mega Fancy Dress are of the best quality, yet very reasonably priced. I am yet to wash the set and will update you how it reacts to the 30deg wash.
The Tutu skirt has a very soft Elastic (not adjustable) so it’s very comfortable to wear. The Design is not too much and just what is needed to give a perfect look for the spooky Halloween day. I wasn’t very happy with the stitching on the Glovelt as it seemed very loose and there were a few hanging threads..but definitely doesn’t look like it will come off that soon as I tried pulling it (really hard). If you girls love Chewing the threads, it is better to tidy them off… (Mine does so! 🙁 ). The Hair clip that comes with the veil is very sturdy and keeps the veil in place all the time.
While the Monster Bride costume was a big hit, Pumpkin Princess Costume was a mega hit at the event. Everyone admired its cuteness and the eye catching fairy lights. If you are looking for something spooky, then this will not be the one you would choose, but believe me, you can never take your eyes off once you end up seeing this costume.
The best thing in Pumpkin princess is the fibre optic lights which’ll have your little one twinkling all night long. The lights are controlled from a hidden pocket in the front of the jacket containing the batteries and a switch. It is easy to reach it and there is no chance that you would miss it even in dark.
The Pumpkin Princess costume includes
Orange coloured dress with overlayed net, sequins and green straps
Layered skirt with green coloured sequins and fibre optic lights.
Green leaf hair clip with sequins.
Would the costumes be complete without Makeup. Mega Fancy Dress has a lot of choice for you to suit your makeup. I chose the Face and Body Paint Fun pack of Crayons, very useful and just the right size. The Crayons were very soft and bright in colours and has all the colours you need for a Spooktacular makeup. It was very easy to apply them on the face without giving much pressure. And ofcourse, was easy to remove as well.
The Monster Bride costume is priced at £16.99 and you can get it in teen size as well for £21.99. The Pumpkin princess is sold for approximately 13.49 and the Crayons are available to buy at around £3.49.
For the quality of the costumes and the great look of them, I definitely feel it is worth the price and you will surely be proud of your shopping.
And most improtantly , the delivery slot Mega Fancy Dress has all the options that you would look for including the next day delivery. Order before 5PM and select next day delivery, relax and do the other stuff…. your purchase is sure to with you the next working day. For the next day delivery, the delivery cost is slightly expensive so it is your choice.
Mega Fancy Dress gets a double thumbs up from Mummy and the Cuties.
