How do I search for the Costume I need?

There are two ways to look for a costume: by browsing the categories, or by typing a word into the search bar.

Costume categories are located in a row near the top of the page and include Social Studies, Early Childhood, School Spirit, Career Day, Holidays, and Performing Arts. Hover your cursor over a category and click on one of the subcategories that pops up to browse through a specific group of costumes.

The search bar is located on the top right corner of the page and appears as a box with the text “Search here” next to a magnifying glass. Click on “Search here” and type a word to search for, then hit “enter” or click on the magnifying glass to show results. If you know the product number of the item you’re looking for, you can type it in the search box.

If you’re having trouble finding the costume you’re looking for, please contact us, as our friendly Customer Service team members will be happy to assist.


You don’t have the costume I need—can you get it?

Maybe! We would certainly be happy to try. Our long-standing position in the Costume Industry means we have access to a huge selection of costumes.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for, contact us at 305-744-3080 or service@schoolcostumes.org and we’ll try to acquire it for you.


Should I have heard back from you by now?

If you’re asking this question, the answer is almost invariably yes. We do advise that if you haven’t received confirmation or a response from us within 24 business hours, you should attempt to contact us again. In reality, we usually respond much faster than that.
