"I bought this makeup to go with a vampire costume that I ordered. Although the costume was a complete disaster, this make-up saved the day. The white cream makeup was super to lighten the skin just enough to look pale. I took some of the black cream makeup and smudged it under the eyes, used the red makeup and the included brush to give the appearance of blood running down the mouth. The white hair cream was the greatest. Took a second for me to figure out the best way to use it, but after I finally decided to put some in the palm of my hand and just lightly rub it over my son's hair, it gave the appearance of the perfect gray look. Would highly recommend this makeup set for anyone!!! Great value for some great makeup!!!"

Title: Worst Costume Ever
Date:November 2, 2010
"When the costume arrived in the mail, it was great. The lights worked wonderful and I was sure it was going to be a hit this halloween. The costume was very wrinkled when we took it out of the package. I threw the cape and pants in the dryer. The shirt/vest couldn't be thrown in the dryer due to the fiber optic lights on the vest. So, I turned my iron on the lowest setting, and placed a double folded pillow case over the top of the shirt before pressing. It was the most difficult thing I have ever tried to iron, and....while trying to iron the collar of the shirt, there was some type of glue substance on the back of the collar (I am assuming to make it stiff??) Well with just a very little heat, iron still on low and a doubled pillow case over the shirt, that glue melted around the collar and it stuck together in all of the wrong places. It looked like a mess!! The seams were out in the back of the cape, that I had to sew together. The shirt ripped while my son was slipping it over his head, and as a last minute fix, I had to take scotch tape and tape the shirt back to the vest where it had ripped about a 4 inch seam in the shirt. There were so many last minute repairs, that we were late going out for trick or treating, and my son had less than an hour to go around the nieghborhood before the deadline occured for trick-or-treating. We should have had 3 1/2 hours, but thanks to this very cheaply made costume, we had less than 1 hour to go out trick or treating. And, last but certainly not least, the minute we walked out the door, wouldn't you know that the lights stopped working. That was the part that excited him the most, and he never got to show one person how his vest lit up, because......it didn't work either. That is why my son picked out this costume, because he wanted something that would light up, that would stand out, and be different. The entire reason he opted for this vampire costume was the fiber optic lights on the vest, and he was so upset, and I just felt like crying when he pushed the button and the lights wouldn't come on. It was very irritating to have so many things go wrong with one costume that was brand new!! I am a single mother trying to make enough money just to pay our bills, and it was really a stretch for us to pay the $40 for this costume. I had to use my bill money to pay for this costume that didn't last long enough for him to put it on, much less to wear it out. This was the worst experience I have ever had with an order from your company. This was a defective costume, that ended up costing me over $40 by the time I paid shipping and handling charges. Speaking of shipping and handling charges, I paid extra for the 3 day expedited shipping, which only took 6 days to arrive, I can't imagine how long it would have taken if I hadn't paid for expedited shipping, we would have missed halloween all together. I have been a devout customer in the past, but if this is any indication of how cheaply you are "throwing" together your costumes now....then I will NOT be ordering from you again. I will also be telling all of my friends how horrible this costume turned out. I would have returned it, but after paying for expedited shipping, it didn't arrive until the day before halloween, so there wasn't time to return it for an exchange, very disappointed!!! What a waste!!! Think twice before you order this costume!!!"
