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

by Sherene on Tuesday, August 12th, 2008


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!






Thanks to the Maloney family (our fearless leaders) for a great season kick-off party!

Hellboy Thanks Costume Craze

by Matthew on Thursday, August 7th, 2008


The Arcadia Theater in Olney, IL had a Hellboy pizza party to celebrate the release of Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. We’re honored that they chose Costume Craze to get their Deluxe Hellboy Costume.

Doesn’t he look great?



They were really happy with the costume and gave us a big shout out on their website. I think this is just great. I love being in this business, it’s all about helping people have fun.

Head on over to to view all of the pictures!
