Costume Supercenter Review

Remember the song recorded by Johnny Rivers called "Secret Agent Man." The words have been running through my head:

Secret Agent Man, Secret Agent Man
They've given you a number and taken away your name

Why has it been on my mind? Because that's what my oldest son decided he wanted to be for Halloween. My two sons both love to dress up. They may dress up in pirate hats, eye patches, and a hook, or they may simply throw their blankets around their necks to create a cape. So while they love to dress up anytime during the year, it is always extra exciting when Halloween comes along. It is also a hassle at times trying to find the perfect kids costume. We seem to go from store to store trying to find it. However, another place to look for costumes is online. We found the secret agent costume at

The Costume Supercenter has a huge variety of costumes to chose from with over 1700 new costumes for Halloween. But costumes do not just need to be for Halloween either. I know that my kids love to dress up anytime. Their prices are reasonable, too. And right now they are even offering free shipping on any order $40 or more with the code FREE40 at checkout.

I was so excited when I was offered the chance to review one of their costumes. The hardest part was choosing! But when I was searching their website for boys Halloween costumes and came across the secret agent costume, I knew that my son would love it! At first, he was thinking about being a police officer, but as soon as he saw the costume at their website, he was hooked. The costume could not come soon enough for him!

The Child's Jr Secret Agent Costume comes with a black trenchcoat, hat, moustaches, sunglasses, handcuffs, and a briefcase. As soon as we took it out of the box, he wanted to try it on. The trenchcoat will be perfect for a cool Halloween night. He loved the sunglasses, which actually have mirrors in them so that you can see behind you. How cool is that! He has not tried out the moustaches yet. They stick on, so we wanted to save them for Halloween. But we received three different moustaches, which is perfect for him because we usually have a school trick or treat night, an Awanas trick or treat night at our church, and then Halloween. He was very excited that the costume came with moustaches, since he has been interested in them ever since he was little. He used to tape the Mr. Potato Head moustaches onto his face just to wear around the house.

This costume comes in two sizes small and large. We chose the small which fits most ages 5- 8 and it fit him perfectly. Although the briefcase is just made out of cardboard, and the handcuffs are made of plastic, this is the perfect costume for my son!! The price of this costume is $44.99, and they also offer some accessories you could buy: black gloves, a detective badge, and a large magnifying glass.

Interested in finding that perfect costume for Halloween, I encourage you to stop by the and take a look!
