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This costume was originally made for the Despicable Me 2 movie and features the face of Minion Dave.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

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!

Amazon Canada: Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) | Was $40 Now $28

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Amazon Canada: Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) | Was $40 Now $28

This is one cool three-pack! On Amazon, you can now save on a Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) – it includes a Batman costume, a Superman costume, and even a Robin costume! Normally $39.99, you can now get this DC Comics costume set for $27.22. You’ll also qualify for free shipping when you order this item! Although Halloween will be here tomorrow, you can always have this 3-pack ready for next year – or you can also pay extra and select “One Day Shipping” so you can have this costume set tomorrow! You can also have these costumes ready for a superhero party!

This Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) is suitable for boys that are from the ages of 3 to 10 years old. The Batman costume includes a Batman Tabard with an attached cape and headpiece. The Superman costume includes a Superman Tabard with an attached cape and some boot tops. Finally, the Robin costume includes a Robin Tabard with an attached cape, an eyemask, and some gauntlets. This is one cute set!

Are you all ready for Halloween tomorrow? One of my best friends is throwing a Halloween party on Saturday night, which should be a momentous affair! He’s a chef, so I’m sure that he’ll have plenty of delicious food available (and candy… I’m particularly a sucker for gummies). Although I won’t be a DC Comics action hero like Batman, Robin, or Superman, I’m going to dress up as The Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase, an old-school WWF/WWE wrestler. It was a toss-up between that or The Big Boss Man!

I found it hard to find this item in Canada. If you were to buy this Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) from Amazon’s American site, it may seem like a good price at $17.95 US, but when I tried to see what it would cost after taxes and shipping to my Canadian address, it ended up being $34.86 US (plus the possible duties and fees that you’d receive at your door).

Listed below is a brief review of this Rubies Costume DC Comics Action Trio Set Of 3 Halloween Costumes (Boys) from a satisfied Amazon customer:

My twin 4 year olds are having a great time mixing and matching these costumes. They’re even looking like they’ll work for Halloween costumes!

Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Amazon Canada: 6-12 Months Green Lantern Costume Just $5 *HOT*

Posted by on October 21, 2014 at 1:42 PM

Amazon Canada: 6 12 Months Green Lantern Costume Just $5 *HOT*

Amazon Canada has a really hot deal on this Justice League Green Lantern Romper Costume for six to twelve month old children. Originally $29.99, the costume is on sale for $5.14!

Seriously! It is nine days before Halloween and you still have time to get a costume shipped in to you from Amazon Canada. This is the perfect deal if you have a young child who needs a costume for Halloween! You are saving 83% on this cute little officially licensed super hero costume. The romper style costume opens from the bottom for easy diaper changes (yay!). There is also an infant version but it is far more expensive ($25) and sold out.

There are really good reviews for this costume on Amazon.com. One reviewer said:

The costume is pretty well made, soft and from our little guys smiles I believe, comfortable. It has gone through the wash and came out okay. The buttons snap together easy and hold tight. The size is on the upper level of the age range ie 6-12 is a true 12 and not a 6. Very happy with the purchase.

Green Lantern is a cool dude, and they are going to be releasing another Green Lantern movie when your kid, who wears this now, is nearly old enough to see the movie. They are estimating the next Green Lantern movie will come out in 2020!

Now, this costume qualifies for free shipping on its own if you have a Prime account. You can easily sign up for a one-month trial of Family Prime and get this costume shipped to you for free. There is also a six-month free trial of Student Prime you can sign up for as well and then get this shipped free of charge. If you do not have a Prime account and have already exhausted both free trials, then you can get free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Shipping under that will only cost you a few dollars if my estimations are correct ($2.99 base cost + $1.49 per lb.).

Quantities are limited and selling out quickly! Get yours while you can. Even if the product goes out of stock you can still buy it from Amazon; however, you might not get it in time for Halloween unless they restock it quickly.

American Apparel: Unisex Shiny Wind Breaker Now $18 (Was $62)

Posted by on October 15, 2014 at 7:00 PM

American Apparel: Unisex Shiny Wind Breaker Now $18 (Was $62)

Get a deal on this unisex Shiny Wind Breaker from American Apparel Canada. Originally $62, the windbreak is on sale for only $18.

The windbreaker comes in gold, red, or black. The black is the most versatile and has the best size range still available. Oddly enough, when you choose to view this on the girl models, the red colour disappears and there is an extra size or two available in the other colours. I have included both links so you can see the full gambit of their size and colour options. Sizes start at XXS and go up to XL.

The black I could see totally working with your casual everyday outfit. However, the red and gold options are fantastic for using to create your own superhero costume. Superheroes like The Flash, Superman, and Shazam have a lot of red in their costumes, so you can incorporate the jacket into a warmer version of your favourite superhero. Just zip up the red jacket and paint a lightning bolt on the front of it. We are talking about Halloween during a Canadian winter here! Many superheroes also have a good amount of gold in their costume as well making a gold jacket perfect for your own superhero interpretation. You could even use the black jacket as the base for a Catwoman costume – she is popular!

In fact, American Apparel has an entire section full of sale items that could be good for Halloween. Pick up a Nylon Tricot Short Short for just $5 (was $24). The black pair would make a good base for many costumes like Catwoman, Zatana, and more.

These Nylon Spandex Micro-Mesh Leggings were $35 and are now $10 a pair. Pick up a red pair for your Poison Ivy costume, a white pair for any number of ice queens, and whatever else you have want to dress up as. I would personally use the white leggings with my Steampunk White Rabbit costume. That is the beauty of self-assembled costumes; you can reuse the pieces for different costumes.

Shipping is free on orders of $60 or more. For orders under $60, pay just $8 flat rate. As you are saving $44 per jacket not to mention the extra savings if you buy anything else, I think it is worth the shipping cost even if you are just ordering a couple things.

Hey Moosers! Do you make your own costumes or buy pre-assembled costumes for Halloween?

Stag Shop Canada: 30% Off Sitewide (NSFW)

Posted by on October 10, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Stag Shop Canada: 30% Off Sitewide (NSFW)

Stag Shop Canada is offering 30% off site wide. No coupon code is necessary. The discount appears to already be taken off the products.

This coupon excludes all restricted items. Now, you may be wondering (as I did) what could be ‘restricted’ on an adult website. You can click through the link here to see the list of brands. Notably, all clearance items are excluded from the extra 30% off.

Honestly, this is a great opportunity to pick up your Halloween costume at a discount. Stag Shop Canada has a large selection of costumes for men and women that qualify for the extra 30% off. A full costume is only around $10 so this is a great place to shop if you are on a budget.

The Coquette – Medieval Guy is a two-piece costume made up of a short and a toy mace, you supply the pants. The shirt is actually a fishnet hoodie with attached wet look vest, arm shields, and chain detail for one hot medieval night (haha). Originally $34.99, it is on sale for $10.49.

Play a Surgeon with this four-piece costume for just $10.49 (was $25.99). The outfit comes complete with both top and bottom scrubs, a facemask, and a skullcap. Stethoscope is not included so ‘borrow’ either one from your doctor’s office or pick one up separately.

Personally, I am totally into the Gangster babe by Coquette. It is a costume I could actually see myself wearing more than just on Halloween. You get the top, the skirt, and fishnet stockings. Hat and toy gun are not included. While the toy gun is not necessary, I would most certainly pick up a hat. Try some old vintage stores as they always have good hats running around that no one wants anymore.  Originally $29.99, the costume is now $10.49.

If you are just waiting to release your inner temptress, then select this three-piece Devilicious costume in red. It has everything you need with a wet look jumper (attached wings and tail), pitchfork, and horns. Originally $29.99, the costume is also now $10.49.

Buy costumes for you and for your mate during this offer. With these prices, you can buy a different costume for each party you are attending. I find costumes have a decent resale value on local forums and Facebook groups, so consider that for next year when you want to change up.

Stag Shop offers free shipping on orders of $49 or more.

*** Contest now closed, winners were Sushma, Annie & Jennifer! ! ***

Halloween is quickly approaching and we’ve got a spook-tacular contest just for you! Win one of three gift cards (in the form of a coupon code) to use at the Costume Supercentre.

You could do so much with $100 at Costume Supercentre. They have a huge selection of costumes for men, women, kids and even pets. They also have party supplies and so much more. You won’t want to just shop for Halloween as they have items for all year long.

My son wants our family to go as a Star Wars family this Halloween and I’m definitely considering it. I’d love to start with my dog as Darth Vader. There are three pages of little boys Star Wars costumes, so I know I’ll find something for each of my three boys as well.

If you never pay full-price for anything (like me), then you might want to hit up the clearance section. Some kids just want to dress up and don’t care what you paid for their costume. You might as well get it on clearance! If there is a specific costume you need to get and still don’t want to pay full-price, you might want to take a gander at Costume Supercentre’s coupon page on Bargainmoose. I see percentages off and offers to get free shipping, so don’t hesitate to use a coupon and keep some money in your wallet.

How to win this prize?

I’ve pictured a few in the image above. We don’t have any coupons for these guys though, they never do coupon codes!

 

Buying from the US

There is a lot more choice from US sites if you’re making an order there. Just make sure to order your Halloween costume with plenty of time to spare for shipping up to the Great White North.

Remember to watch out for customs and duties policies – some stores will charge these at checkout, but some won’t (and you may be liable to pay a fee to receive the parcel). We’ll research what we can from the stores and tell you exactly what I can find in the paragraphs below.

Here is a selection of US Halloween costume stores and a few offers you might want to take advantage of.

One of the largest US sites to buy costumes online is… Buycostumes.com! They have a super selection at decent prices.

Old favourite: eBay Canada

Halloween Costume Coupons!

I am sure it is common knowledge that people will sell their old Halloween costumes on eBay Canada. It’s a particularly good source of bargains, especially for the kids. In many cases, the outfit will only have been worn a handful of times before the child has grown too big to make use of it.

Additionally, you can sometimes find “specialist” items there that might be a bit difficult to find elsewhere.

Alternatives: Regular Clothing Stores

As well as all the specialist Halloween stores mentioned above, you can always find Halloween costumes in some regular stores. For kids outfits for example, Halloween stock appears on the shelves in the likes of Old Navy and The Childrens Place. You’ll probably find more of these deals closer to the time. However, I find that these can be the most expensive to purchase before Halloween. There are always price drops after Halloween – if you can be prepared enough to purchase next year’s costumes then.

In the comments below, please let me know if you know of any more specialist costume stores that I can add to the list!

Minitrade Canada coupon code: 20% off Fall Items

Minitrade Canada coupon code: 20% off Fall Items

Enjoy this two-day coupon code for one of my favourite used clothing stores, Minitrade. Receive 20% off fall items today and tomorrow.

Click here to shop fall wardrobe favourites @ Minitrade Canada now

  • Coupon Code: minifall14
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: 17th September 2014

In the women’s section I was immediately drawn to this Women Dress by Mexx in size XL. The material looks thick and so comfortable. I like the three-tier colour pattern going on. The long sleeves and boat neck seem very appropriate for fall, and I could see pairing this dress with a pair of leggings for an easy autumn outfit. The dress retails for $99.90 new, but costs only $34.96 at Minitrade. After coupon code, you will pay only $27.97.

While darks are generally frowned upon in the summer, fall is the perfect time to go back to your more colour saturated clothing. This Women Shirt by Dynamite is the most beautiful purple – sort of an eggplant colour. It also has an elasticized neck and arms for a more customized fit. The included belt and adorable pockets really set this shirt apart. If this shirt were in my size, I would have a hard time not buying it. This Dynamite shirt retails for $34.99, but costs only $6.99 at Minitrade. Use the fall coupon code to receive this shirt for just $5.59.

The fall girls and the fall boys sections also have great clothing finds including costumes! Here are some deals you do not want to miss:

So many costumes in the boys’ section are good for boys and girls. You can literally get a costume for your child for only a few dollars. It will be in nearly perfect condition and you do not have to worry about them wrecking it, getting candy stains on it, wearing it out, or outgrowing it because you will have only paid a couple dollars. Personally, my favourite costume is this Dinosaur Costume for 12 month olds. It is a lovely white/blue/green and comes complete with a full jumper with tail, hood, feet, and gloves. Originally $20.99, the costume is on sale for $4.20. After coupon code, you pay just $3.36.

Some stuff you need to know:

All prices on the website are in USD. BuyCostumes.com ships from the USA but they have a fully landed cost shipping method. That means all duty and taxes are calculated and billed to you at checkout so there will not be any additional landing costs. This saves you those high brokerage fees from our famous couriers.

Shipping starts at only $4.99 and goes up to $10.99 for orders just under $75. Orders of $75 up to $249.99 ship for free to Canada. This is another reason these coupons from BuyCostumes.com are so good, you can team them up with free shipping to get a good deal.

These coupons also work on items that are already discounted. Take this Disney Frozen Deluxe Elsa Toddler / Child Costume – 3T-4T that was $37.99 and is now only $34.99. You can then add on the 20% off kid’s coupon code to bring this costume down to just $27.99. The costume comes with dress, adjustable belt, and tiara. This EVEN works for orange tag costumes! Check this out:

  • Star Trek Movie (Blue) Shirt Child Costume Was $34.99 | Sale $2.97 | After coupon $2.38
  • The Jetsons Jane Jetson Child Costume Was $44.99 | Sale $4.97 | After coupon $3.98

That is like AWESOME!!! There are many full costumes you can buy in the sale section for dirt cheap that also combine with these coupon codes for amazing deals. You really do not want to miss this!

Note: While shopping on BuyCostumes.com you may receive a pop-up for 20% off your entire order with no minimum. This happened to me. However, the coupon code you will receive is unique (one time use), so I could not share it. This is a very good coupon, as it does not appear to have a minimum. If you get the pop-up, make sure to take advantage of the opportunity!

Sears Canada: Princess Factory Dance Class Dress-Up Set – Now $12.94

Sears Canada: Princess Factory Dance Class Dress Up Set   Now $12.94

Sears Canada is selling the Princess Factory Dance Class Dress-Up Set complete with two dance outfits for just $12.94 on clearance. You will receive an outfit in pink and an outfit in lavender for girls ages three to five years old.

This is a really good deal in my books because you get two outfits for just under $13. That works out to $6.50 an outfit and they come complete with leotard, tutu, sewn slippers, and ruffled headband. One set comes in pink and one set comes in purple.

I was attempting to price compare, but could find this set so few places. I did find a set of the singular (one set) for $23.99 + shipping at Amazon.com. Besides that I couldn’t find much as this set is several seasons old.

There are two reviews on Sears Canada and they are polar opposites! One buyer loves the sets while the other was disenchanted with the quality. Here is what the unhappy buyer had to say:

ordered these for my girls.with in the first hour my house was covered in glitter from one of the tutus and sequins were falling off off the bodysuits and shoes.total wast of money.

Here is what the happy buyer had to say:

Ordered the Princess Dance Dressup set for my 3 year old granddaughter. As soon as she opened it, she dressed up in the purple set adding a pair of white tights to complete the outfit. She then put on a “Wiggles” CD and began to dance. The outfits are well made and durable. This is the first time I have seen an outfit that includes the ballet slippers, and tierras that are made with soft comfortable fabric covering the head band. I would recommend this product to parents and grandparents alike as a gift for 3-5yr olds that like dancing as much as my granddaughter.

Get it shipped to your local store for free to avoid shipping charges that start at $7.95.

There are several other costumes on clearance in the Sears Outlet you might want to take a look at as Halloween is on its way. This MARVEL adidas Special Effects Hero Mask is 60% off – now only $9.94. The SUPER MARIO Kids’ Deluxe Costume is also 60% off at only $14.94. You can also purchase a CLONE TROOPER Rex Deluxe Costume for Kids for only $27.94 on clearance.

Groupon Canada: $20 For $40 @ Costume Supercentre

Groupon Canada: $20 For $40 @ Costume Supercentre

I know summer is dying down and it is getting you depressed. Why not cheer yourself up with a Halloween costume? While it isn’t sunscreen, margaritas and swims in the lake, Halloween is a nice second choice to summer. Groupon has a fantastic deal on right now, getting you $40 worth of items at CostumeSupercentre.ca for only $20.

Halloween is huge in the Webster household and not just for the kids. My husband is a huge fan of dressing up and one Halloween, I actually had to stop his marathon 2-hour makeup session so the kids could actually get ready and go trick or treating. We also love decorating our house and yard for the occasion, but I feel bad for the kids who come to our house thinking they’ll get some good candy because both my husband and I are too excited to take the kids out that we don’t stay home to hand out candy. I do leave a bowl by the door but I usually find it completely empty by the time we get home so either some lucky kid got rich or I just really had a lot of kids.

My family loves to do themes when it comes to costumes. For example, one year we were all scary and last year we were all plays on words like “cereal killer and candy rapper”. This year, I’m not quite sure, but I bet I could get some great ideas from Costume Supercentre.

What’s really cool about them is that they ship from Canada, which I believe they are the only costume store to do so. This means no duties and custom fees and you know you won’t be waiting until Christmas to get your order.

It looks like you can only buy one of these deals for yourself and one as a gift and you must use the full amount in one transaction before the end of the year. It also says it can’t be used with any other promotions, but I’d be very interested to see if it would work with any of the coupons we have listed on Costume Supercentre’s coupon page.

Shipping is free when you spend $80, which you still could with this certificate, you’ll get your $20 off no matter what you spend over $40.
