My kids enjoy reviewing costumes whenever the opportunity arises and it becomes very difficult to convince them that Halloween is almost 3 months away. As soon as I say the word "costume" it becomes Halloween is the talk of my home and it MUST be tomorrow :)
We have reviewed costumes in the past and I honestly do not remember if I have worked with this company in the past. The Wholesale Costume Club is an online store with a wide variety of costumes for young to old, sizes to fit any body type and fabulous accessories to spruce up that costume.
I had the opportunity to review a costume with my 4 yr old daughter because after all..who does not like to dress up?? The theme this quarter was Girls Monster High, and after telling you I had a girl you do understand the excitement she felt knowing it was a "doll" that she actually has in her collection. After sifting through a wide variety of characters she based her choice on color over character. Drum roll PLEASE..
Before you ask ..why.. I am an open minded mother who does instill the right to choose in my kids lives and as for a costume it is just that, dress up.
Draculaura is the 1,600 year old daughter of Dracula and she is a vegetarian vampire who does not drink blood or eat meat and appears to be hemophobic. She has dark hair with pink streaks. Which can be found in Monster Library with other fun facts about these dolls.
The packaging explains in detail what the product comes with, it is a full costume minus tights or shoes.
This was my favorite part of the costume, the zipper..it was ideal!! More often than not costumes have come with snaps, buttons or velcro and none seem to complete the outfit. Not only was it easy to put on her but it was so perfectly fitted. My daughter is a size 4/5 as she is tall not heavy and I did choose to go up a size on costume per the sizing guidelines(its always a good practice to check as clothes are not always TTS).
The wig came fully contained in a hair net inside a plastic bag, pink strands were abundant thru the wig and all was perfectly attached (no loose hair) it comes rubber banded and you are welcome to create your own style. The wig does have an elastic band to hold it in place easier.
The dress is fully embellished, no loose pieces noticed, it is scalloped around skirt and underlined in tulle. **Hint, with tulle it is always good to hang upside down before you wear as it creates that poof to make dress stand out**

**Thank you to Wholesale Costume Club for the opportunity to review the product. As always my opinions are 100% my own and the receipt of product does NOT promise a positive review. I felt the product was as described and pleased with packaging and contact with customer care.**
