Admit it. In the back of your mind you think that if you shop for Halloween costumes online you're cheating. You think nothing beats the look of a homemade costume and buying one from some website just seems wrong. You probably also think that those online costumes are poorly made, like those costumes you find at your local big box store.
Well, think again. Over the last few years there's been an explosion of interest in all things Halloween and costumes are no exception. Buying your costumes online no longer means you'll be settling for shoddy workmanship, cheap fabrics and only a small selection from which to choose. Now, there's no more shame in buying your Halloween costume online and you won't be cheating if you do.
But where to start? There are dozens of online costume sites.
BuyCostumes.com has one of the largest selections of Halloween costumes and costume ideas online. You'll find movie characters including Spiderman, Harry Potter and Star Wars characters. If you're a gamer you'll love the Super Mario Brothers costumes. They have a wide variety of costumes for children of all ages, from infants to teens.
In the mood to create your own look? Check out the variety of vampire and zombie costumes then tour the online catalog to find accessories ranging from disco to goth to pure, unadulterated gore!
BuyCostumes.com isn't just for Halloween. The next time your child has to be Uncle Sam or a pilgrim in the school play, or your organization needs a Santa Claus suit, you can find historical and theatrical costumes of all shapes and sizes, ready to be shipped right to your door.
If you're looking for great ideas and costumes for couples, then check out PureCostumes.com. Their costumes are amazing! The Avatar couple, the Gangster couple, Disco Sleazeballs, Superman and Batman couples, Spartan Warrior couples, Sailor couples, Mario couples, and so many more I don't have room to list them all.
PureCostumes.com also has amazing group costumes for parties of four. The Popeye group includes Popeye, Olive Oil, Brutus and a toddler Popeye costume and the Scooby Doo group has Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne and Velma costumes. And that's only the beginning.

FrightCatalog.com not only has a huge selection of frightfully scary Halloween costumes they also have one of the best selections of props and accessories. No zombie costume would be complete without the Zombie Zone Eye Gash or the Zombie Knife Through The Head. And our personal favorite is the EZ FX Bloody Bolt Kit which is just too, too gruesome to try to describe here on this family-friendly site.
