Spider-Man: The Early Years

by Matthew on Monday, August 18th, 2008

Aw, check out this young Spiderman. This was sent to us by a happy family who got their Spiderman costume from Costume Craze!
 


 
We LOVE seeing happy customers wearing our costumes. It’s great to see how much fun the little boy is having, dressing up and pretending to be a superhero. Looks like the baby is enjoying it, too.

Thank you for sending this to us!



Halloween Kick-off Party

Halloween is a big deal at Costume Craze. In fact, our warehouse can be a pretty scary place between August and October!

ATSA00010And since this is our first Halloween in our new building, it just made sense to kick off the holiday with a grand soiree!

Friday, August 8th we met at the warehouse after work. Employees brought their families and a delicious potluck dish to share.

The tables were full of all kinds of goodies to try, including Teri’s fancy Texas Caviar (black bean salsa).

All the “kids” in attendance, young and old, had a good time in the Backyard (our game area) after dinner with video games, table tennis and foosball. And of course, a T.V. was mounted on the south wall so we could catch bits of the Olympic Opening Ceremony!
