Scaring up spiders is a way of life for this eerie ghost. She'll be the scariest spook on the block in this frightening disguise. Costume includes dress, jacket with hood, wig, and spider web covering. 4-piece set. Polyester. Imported. Does not include spider, boots or makeup.

Title: Spiderwebs hard to use
Date:October 30, 2010
" Okay, first I would like to state that I am not a super crafty person. But seriously, placing the spiderwebs was difficult, at best. There really is no way to attach them and they stick to your fingers! I finally attached them with safety pins, but I do not know how long that will last.
As far as spiders...our package said that it did not include any spiders. We, too, just bought a package and put them in her hair and webs.
Not a bad product for the price, darling daughter was pleased.

Title: Not at all impressed...
Date:October 15, 2009
" I am not impressed by this costume. There are so many things wrong with this costume I am not sure where to start...
First of all the sizing is way off! We ordered a 12/14 for our 10 year old. She is not tall, only about 53", and the 12/14 was very short. It barely covered her bottom! But the tights were super baggy!
Secondly, the anklets were extremely difficult to put on. She does not have a high instep or big feet...they are just not big enough.
Thirdly, the wings sag horribly. They do not stand up like in the picture.
Finally, the items were so wrinkled by being shoved into the box, it was appalling. In order to wear this, every piece will have to be ironed.
We order from Costume Express every year and this is the first time we were disappointed. But were we ever! "
 
Package includes 8 thank-you notes (with envelopes) to match your party theme.

Title: Loved them!
Date:October 15, 2009
" These thank you notes were perfect! They folded up and looked just like a little purse!
Our theme was the Pink Skull Party Pack and we used these thank you notes and the fashionista gift bags. They all coordinated perfectly.
My daughter's only complaint about them was the closing comment where they are to sign their name says "kiss, kiss". She really did not want to send that to her friends. So, we used a black sharpie and marked it out. She was happier then. "

Title: Great favor boxes!
Date:October 15, 2009
" These were so cute! I ordered them for our 10 year old's birthday party. Everyone loved them. The pink and black theme went perfectly with the Pink Skull Party Pack.
They were a bit challenging for our daughter to put together though. There is a back pocket that just did not want to stay put and that was frustrating! "

Title: Pretty in Pink!
Date:October 15, 2009
" This was a great buy! All the girls at the party loved it. A perfect combination of pink and black...not to frilly, but still loved by our girly girl!
My reason for giving it 4 and not 5 stars was because the invitations were back ordered and were not included with the other party supplies. We ordered the fashionista invitations and they went perfectly. "
 
A removable sticker marks the hidden location where candy should be inserted. Pinata fillers and pull-string pinata kit sold separately.

Title: A great pinata!
Date:October 15, 2009
" My 10 year old daughter and her friends loved this pinata. It looks exactly like the photo online.
It took some abuse before it opened and each girl was able to have at least one turn wacking it. My only complaint was that it broke at the holder before anywhere else. But we just restrung it up again and continued on. "
