Costume Review from CostumeDiscounters.com

I was so excited to recently receive the opportunity to review a costume from CostumeDiscounters.com. Maybe chock it up to my childhood as an assistant clown to my mom (who was a professional clown) at parties, but I love costumes. I am always looking for great costume ideas for Halloween or the occasional impromptu costume party.

Since it is too soon to be thinking about Halloween for next year yet, I decided I would stick with the season and I chose to review this sassy Sexy Santas Little Helper Costume.

First off, I was very impressed by the selection of womens costumes that were available. Costume Discounters carry such a large variety, even within each type. For example, there were lots of different lady Santa costumes available ranging from the traditional Mrs. Clause to the younger, hipper Santa's helper costume that I chose. They have lots of fun, creative, and sexy costumes.

Ok now onto the costume! It was super cute. The costume consisted of a one piece red velvet-like halter dress and the striped stockings in the picture above. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the costume. Usually when I think about costumes I have nightmares about the poor quality costumes you find strewn about the temporary Halloween store, but this was so much better. The costume was well made and had a sturdy zipper closure on the back. The fabric also had a lot of stretch and give making it very comfortable. My only complaint about the dress what that it was on the short side -- I will definitely have to wear something under it when I wear it. I also LOVED the stockings...so much so that I wore them ALL day today (they looked like socks under my jeans) and got lots of comments on how festive they were. The costume also arrived quickly and in sturdy packing. It came in one of those heavyweight plastic hanging bags, which will make storing it easy as well.

Overall, I think this costume was great and a wonderful representation of the products and service that Costume Discounters provide. What's also great is their prices! They have costumes that are affordable on any budget. I strongly recommend that you check them out next time you are need of a great costume!

EdenFantasy Massage Oils Review

I was recently given the opportunity to do a review for EdenFantasys. Although they are generally an adult shop, they also carry a wide variety of massage oils, candles, and novelty gifts that would be perfect for bachelor/bachelorette parties or just creating a little more romance.

My husband works in a fairly physical job so I took the opportunity to review The Collection Oils Gift Set to treat him to a back massage. The oils were wonderful! They came in variety pack of five different scents and smelled wonderful. The bottles they came in were also super-cute and would be easy to refill.


This is just one of the great products you can find on EdenFantasys. They have carry lots of other massage oils and they also carry many different types of candles and carry other great products like body shimmer powder. These make great gifts to surprise you significant other for an anniversary or Valentine's Day with a little romance. They also carry gift packs and novelty gifts that would be great for bachelorette parties and bridal showers.
