Costume SuperCenter – Our Captain America Costume Review

You’ve seen the commercials, and you’re well aware that The Avengers are in your local theater right now. {Still hoping I actually get to see the movie in the theater!} But, as a mom with 4 boys, I’ve got my own little set of Avengers here at home. And my boys have very vivid imaginations. One thing they love to do is dress up in costumes of their favorite super heroes. Needless to say, I am always scouting websites looking for the best boys costumes I can find – at a price I can actually afford.

Costume Supercenter recently contacted me and asked if I would like to review a costume for them. After visiting their website and seeing all the cool Avengers costumes they had available, I couldn’t wait to do this review… and neither could my boys!

Captain America is our favorite Avenger. He’s super cool, and he totally kicks butt. And the Captain America costume that Costume SuperCenter sent us is absolutely awesome! I love the fake “muscles” that are built into the costume. It makes my boys feel like they really are Captain America, and they can prepare to “fight the bad guys” – and all the evil things that lurk in the woods around our house. 🙂

I am really impressed with the quality of the costume – and with the price. At less than $30, these costumes are perfect for my boys. I can purchase them as birthday or Christmas gifts, or even “just because.”

The one thing that bummed us all out a bit, though, is that the costume didn’t come with Captain America’s shield. Now, really, how can you be Captain America without a shield? Luckily, my boys are great improvisors, and Zander made up his own Captain America shield. {I will be purchasing the Captain America movie shield from Costume Supercenter for Zander’s birthday.}

I will definitely be shopping at Costume Supercenter for all our costume needs. With their super low prices and fantastic selection, I can find exactly what I need for each one of my kids. Their customer service is top-notch, and they ship very quickly.

If you have kids that love to play dress up, or if you’re already thinking about what to do for Halloween costumes this year, head on over to the  Costume Supercenter website and take a look around. You’re certain to find something you’re going to love!
