Kids’ Animal Morphsuits from $32 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Kids’ Animal Morphsuits from $32 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

While browsing Amazon.ca, these Morphsuits came up in my recommended items, as I had previously been looking for costume ideas. I saw a thumbnail of the gorilla morphsuit pictured above left, and I just HAD to click in and see what it was! I’ve seen plain coloured morphsuits in the past, but I didn’t realise that you could get patterned and character themed ones! There is a discounted deal on a number of animal morphsuits on Amazon Canada with prices starting around $32, so I thought I’d share these quirky costumes.

There are a few sizes to choose from (small, medium and large), but the prices I quote above are just the starting prices for select sizes. Large appears to be the cheapest in each case. Please note that the prices I am showing are from Amazon themselves – not from third party marketplace sellers (which may pop up). And as such, they will all come with free super saver shipping.

(81% off) Age of Ultron (Vision or Hawkeye) Costumes from only $6.96 @ Amazon.ca!

(81% off) Age of Ultron (Vision or Hawkeye) Costumes from only $6.96 @ Amazon.ca!

This morning, I hit up the Amazon.ca costume pages, and sorted by price low-to-high. In this fashion, I scroll through the deal and see if anything really jumps out at me. I am always on the watch for cheap items for my kid’s dressing up box – and I’ve found a few costumes which could be just the ticket, if you do the same. There are two items which are fantastic bargains – one is a Hawkeye costume and one is a Vision costume, two characters from the recent Avengers Age of Ultron movie. Each was $35.99, but can be had for only $6.96 just now!

For the $6.96 price point, you have the following sizing availability:

  • Vision – Medium (fits most children 50” to 54” tall, 27” to 30” waist and 29” to 32” hips/waist)
  • Hawkeye – Large (fits most children 56” to 60” tall, 31” to 34” waist and 35” to 39” chest/hips)

DC Comics Girls Trio of Action Costumes was $43 now $28 @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on August 24, 2015 at 11:33 AM

DC Comics Girls Trio of Action Costumes was $43 now $28 @ Amazon.ca!

Yesterday, I wrote about the really great little deal on this set of three super-hero costumes on Amazon.ca. Just note that item dropped in price almost another dollar from when I wrote it yesterday! But today, I’ve found a very similar item, but it’s worth highlighting too – it’s the girl’s set of three DC Comics costumes, also on special offer! It was priced at $42.99, but you can grab it now for only $28.27 with free shipping!

Technically, this works out at $9.42 per outfit – that’s a steal for an official set of good quality super-hero costumes. However, I cannot see this exact set anywhere else online in Canada to price compare. It IS cheaper on the dot com, but shipping to Canada would be quite a bit extra. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Costumes from only $8.42 @ Amazon.ca!! * HOT *

I’m a fan of the Marvel universe in all its incarnations. That’s why I was browsing the Marvel section on Amazon.ca, to see what I could see. I spotted some great prices on some kids’ costumes – with items starting from only $8.42! That’s a really low price point for some authentic Marvel branded costumes and it’s definitely worth telling you guys about!

(NOTE: Scroll down and hit the “costumes” link half way down the page)

There are many costumes on offer, from $8.42 and upwards. The price of each depends on what size of a costume you choose; some sizing is a much better deal than others. Here are a few of the most stand-out bargains that I can currently see (I am bolding the best prices in each):

Avengers Assemble Iron Man was $51.99:

  • Small = $32.34
  • Medium = $8.42 $8.71
  • Large = $8.42 $8.66

Minion Dave Kids Costume Only $26 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on June 29, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Minion Dave Kids Costume Only $26 & Free Shipping @ Amazon Canada

Is your house as crazy for Minions as my house is? Check out this hilarious Minion Dave Costume. This costume is listed at $40.99, but you can swipe it away for only $25.92. This fun costume also qualifies for completely free shipping.

Are you gearing up for the new Minions movie? I have seen the trailer and it looks like it is going to be hilarious and a great movie for families. All of our favourite loveable minions are back in a prequel to the Despicable Me series. Today over on Amazon Canada I have found a minion costume for kids that will surely delight your little minion. If you order right away, you could even wear your costume to the showing of the movie.

This costume was originally made for the Despicable Me 2 movie and features the face of Minion Dave. It is a foam one-piece costume that easily slides over your head. The costume sticks out at the sides to give you a tall minion shape. This is perfect if your kiddo likes to play pretend. I would be dying of laughter watching my kid play in this costume. This costume is available in small and medium sizes. The small size fits a child who is 44″ to 48″ tall with 25″ to 26″ waist, and the child medium fits a child who is 50″ to 54″ tall with 27″ to 30″ inch waist. Sears.ca (though now out of stock) suggests that the small size is for a kid age three to four, and the medium is for a kid age five to seven. This costume has Minion Dave’s face, as he is included in the Despicable Me 2 movie. The trailer for the new movie mentions Minion Dave, so I suspect we will see him in this movie also. Minion Dave is unfortunately not one of the three lead minions for the new movie.

I did find this costume a few other places in Canada. I found this costume for $34.99 at Party City Canada, but the shipping will make your heart stop. With the $16.95 shipping cost, your total is $51.94, plus another $4.95 in duties at checkout, yikes!  CostumeSuperCentre.ca is selling this costume for $28.04 on sale. The site was so slow I could not get it to tell me how much shipping charges ranged without fully checking out, but shipping prices will vary depending on your location. At Newegg.ca, this costume is selling for $42.54 plus shipping costs.

This is a great surprise for your favourite Minion loving kid. Order now while they still have your kid’s size!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Frozen & More Costumes 50% Off @ Sears Canada

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 3:23 PM

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Frozen & More Costumes 50% Off @ Sears Canada

Although Halloween is seven months away, kids can’t resist getting dressed up. My youngest son has a huge dress-up box, which he puts to good use on a daily basis. I think his favourite present to get would be a costume. He is also in love with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so I was very excited to see costumes from them regularly $49.99, now $24.99 at Sears right now.

My son is actually in love with Mikey, but Leonardo might do. Unfortunately, only sizes 8 and 10 are available so one of his older brothers might like this costume for next Halloween (or when he secretly plays dress up too). Scouring the web, I found this was a terrific bargain, with it being $46 at Walmart. Even if you only bought the costume and had to pay for shipping from Sears because you didn’t reach their $99 minimum, the $7.50 you’ll add will still make Sears cheaper than Walmart’s price.

Of course, every little girl has her Elsa and Anna fantasies and a costume is a great way to let her be that Frozen princess for a day (or more). Regularly $39.99, it is now $19.99.

If your little girl is past Frozen and Monster High is on her mind, check out the Clawdeen Wolf deluxe Monster High costume. Regularly $59.99, now $29.99. The rest of the Monster High team is also there if your child likes different characters.

While many of these costumes come in the larger sizes, I did find this Strawberry Shortcake kid’s deluxe costume at Sears, that was regularly $59.99 and now $29.99.

What I like about this sale is that the costumes are the big names that the kids love and will most likely still love in October if you are saving them for Halloween. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for so long, I already know my son won’t be disappointed in a few months if I tell him he’ll be Michelangelo this year. The same goes for guys like Darth Vader and Captain America, who are also on sale.

ElleStyles Canada: Easy Rider Cow Girl Costume Was $129 | Now $68 With Exclusive Coupon + Shipping

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 4:00 PM

ElleStyles Canada: Easy Rider Cow Girl Costume Was $129 | Now $68 With Exclusive Coupon + Shipping

If you are looking for that perfect sexy outfit, look no further than Elle Styles. This Canadian company sells clubwear, costumes and dresses to wear out or to stay in. I found this very sexy easy rider cow girl costume, that was originally $129, but now on sale for $79.99. We’ve managed to procure an exclusive coupon code for you to use to get an even better deal on this hot outfit. Get another 15% off when you use the coupon code BargainMoose15%, bringing the total for this outfit down to $67.99.

With Halloween quite a few months away, I’m going to say this costume is perfect for staying in. It could also possibly be worn to a dress-up party where you want to look sexier than anyone else around. Either way, you’ve got all you need for that “ride ‘em cowboy” mentality including the hat, halter top, vest with fringe shorts and the chaps with the antique brass belt. You really don’t need any more.

I had a friend who wore an outfit almost exactly like this to a party I once went to. I can tell you it garnered a lot of attention. The sizes for this costume come in either small/medium or medium/large and you’ll want to check the size guide for what that means. It seems like the largest this costume will fit is a size 10, but when I look at the bust measurements, those don’t look like a 10’s measurements, so ensure you know your measurements before you order.

If cowgirl just isn’t your thing, there is plenty more where this came from. Not on sale, I found this big bad wolf costume fascinating. Its got a corset, tail and hood that look so fun to wear! Regularly $119.99, you can add the coupon code and bring the price down to $101.99. This will qualify you for free shipping, as the threshold is set at $100. If you are getting the cowgirl costume, you might want to add something else to your cart so you don’t get charged the $10 charge for shipping.

Half Price Children’s Costumes @ Chapters Indigo Online

Posted by on November 23, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Half Price Children’s Costumes @ Chapters Indigo Online

While browsing round the Chapters Indigo site to see if I could spot any bargains, I came across this deal on children’s costumes on the clearance pages. Select costumes have been reduced by up to 50% in a post-Halloween sale, and there are a number of great bargains to be had!

There aren’t a huge number of outfits available in the sale, but there are some popular characters in there which you may have heard of such as Captain America and Rocket Racoon.

Examples:

Stock seems really limited, so if you are interested in any of these costumes, then buy them right now. It’s a perfect time to add one year to your kid’s age and get them a budget costume for next Halloween. It’s free shipping on any order of $25 or more.

Some items, such as this cute baby costume, the Pinky Winky, states that it is on “re-order online.” This should mean it will be coming back into stock. If you’re interested in those that are on re-order, bookmark the page and be sure to check back again.

I love the Captain America ones and even my 4 year old daughter would love those too! She goes to an after-school club and sometimes I walk in to find her dressed up in a muscly Iron Man or Captain America outfit, just like the above. She loves them! I’d much prefer to buy her that type of costume than a stereo-typical pink one each and every year. This Halloween, she and I both dressed up as Elphaba, the green-faced witch from Wicked. We looked great!

P.S. If you’re buying any other full-priced items online @ Chapters Indigo today (the 23rd November 2014), make sure to apply the coupon code HOLIDAYCHEER for a 25% discount on one item.

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 8:00 PM

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Tomorrow is Halloween and if you are like me, you have a busy life and may have waited until the last minute to get your Halloween things together.  You may need a last minute costume, or some last minute decorations, or even some last minute party ideas.  I am sure there a lot of people that are in this boat so I have put together a few last minute easy to do Halloween ideas for trick or treating, parties or for decorations in general.

1. Party Prop

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This is a very simple and fast thing to do the day of your party.  Just put  rubber spider, worm, or any creepy crawler in you ice cube trays to have some festive ice for your guests drinks! I found this idea at Buzzfeed and I know I will be using it this year for my kids.

2. House Decoration

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This last minute easy decoration is also from Buzzfeed.  Just take any plastic cup you may have, draw a jack-o-lantern face on them and use the flame-less candles underneath. You can make fun ghosts, pumpkins, Frankenstein faces and more and it will just take you minutes.

3. Party Game

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This game from Daycare Answers is perfect for a kids party.  Basically, you get foods like spaghetti, grapes, a banana and put them in holes in a box and get the kids to guess what everything is.  They think that the items are guts, eyeballs and brains instead.  The complete instructions are listed through the link.

4. Halloween Food

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

I would have never thought of this myself.  Add some white icing and chocolate chips to a cupcake and you have a cupcake ghost.  This idea from Buzzfeed is perfect for a Halloween party this weekend!

5. Costume

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This simple skeleton costume that I found at Coolest Homemade Costumes would work for a man, woman, or child.  You just need a black shirt and a white shirt and you make some cuts into the material.  You can add some face paint to make the costume even better but all of the directions are listed online.

6. Party Prop

6 Last Minute Halloween Ideas

This prop would be more for an adult party.  Print off a scary picture and put it in a jar with coloured juice to make it look like a body part in a jar.  I have to admit, this looks pretty cool even though it is morbid. This idea came from Morbid. They have it as an April Fool’s joke but it would make a great Halloween prop for any party.

Have a very fun and safe Halloween tomorrow night Moosers!
