Just went to Fantasy Costumes and picked up a New Years Eve Party Kit. All the right toys to make my party kick Butt. Good selection of party supplies and nice people.

Great selection. I browsed around the store for an hour and still could not see everything they had. They treated me fairly and the prices were good.

Fantasy Costumes is the biggest and the baddest costume shop in the world. They got adult toys and outfits that will make you say -DAMN!

Of course they have kids costumes and more, but I love the 1000's of Wigs and the body make up selection. No one has the selection that this costume store has and I mean - No One!

And for Halloween - they have more scary and creepy costumes than those commercial Halloween costume stores. You can find them online at fantasy costumes.com and easily place your order. When it comes to costumes - I only shop at Fantasy Costumes in Chicago.

Fantasy costumes is place you want to come and hang out at everyday. It is truly the Best Wig and Costume store on the Planet!\r\n\r\nThey are hugh and if you don't see what you want in the store they have an awesome warehouse full of about 3 to 5 thousand wigs and over a million costume and party items.\r\n\r\nThe selection of Mascot and costume rentals is overwelming. You will never find a better selection of costumes to choose from. The staff is very helpful and I always recommend Fantasy Costumes to all of my friends and family.\r\n\r\nIt would take you months to try on all of the Wigs they have and they have thousands of Masquerade Masks for any occasion. They have Ganster Costumes, Sexy School Girl Costumes, Goth Costumes, 70's Party Costumes, Playboy Bunny Costumes and Plus Size Costumes up to 6X --- Wow 6X Plus Size Costumes!\r\n\r\nSo when you think Buy Costumes - Go to Fantasy Costumes, its worth the trip!

Pros: Everthing Costume or Party that you need

Cons: Kids never want to Leave

Fantasy Costumes is THE BEST costume store I've ever been to! \r\n\r\nThey have costumes to buy or rent, or even pieces of costumes (I.e. Wigs, glasses, masks, etc.) that you can piece together with what you already have or the staff will put together a costume just for you.\r\n\r\nAnytime either myself or one of my friends need to BuyCostumes oe something Party City related, we go to Fantasy Costumes. The place is a city block long, open year round, with plenty of street parking or they have a lot around the corner during Halloween.\r\n\r\nI sometimes just go to see all the different outfits and people watch at Fantasy Costumes. Just coming to Fantasy costumes is a treat to watch the different types of people that are attracted here. Just an overall Fun place to come and pick out a sexy costume too :)\r\n\r\n

Well, before I shopped I read the reviews on Fantasy Costumes. My experience was completely the opposite of the negative reviews. I have to ask who was at fault--the store or the purchaser. I looked on line for what I wanted. Went to the store at an hour that I knew the traffic wouldn't be bad, that there would be available parking (got a space right across the street) and went at a time most people wouldn't be shopping. I was greeted as I walked in. I was asked what I was looking for. They listened to what I wanted and the type of party I was planning on attending. They gave me options. I said I was on the web site and saw a few items that I liked. They retrieved a number of those items. I paid a very reasonable price and I was out the door in 20 minutes or less! Keep up the great work. I'll be back and so will my friends!

I ordered a very expensive dress on October 10 for an October 25 party. I ordered online and immediately called to ask if they could add a note to my order saying that I needed the costume before the 25th. The woman said it would absolutely be taken care of and I would have it well before my party.\r\n I finally called on the 22nd, still having not received the costume. I was on hold forever, it seemed, and when someone finally DID answer the phone, it was with a very irritated, ""Hello."" I tell him I'm looking for an update on a shipment that I haven't received, yet, and he says it was shipped. When I ask him when it was shipped, he says the 20th! The website AND the confirmation email I received promises shipment WITHIN 24 hours (the website now says 24-72, but even if it had been shipped within that time, I would've received it on time). It was shipped 10 DAYS after I ordered it. He tells me it is supposed to arrive on the 27th.\r\n\r\nI tell him we have a problem, since my party is on the 25th. I say I'd like to start the process of returning this, since I can't use it if it's coming after the party. He starts getting really upset and offensive and tells me no one is going to let me return this. It's my fault for ordering ground shipment, he says, and he's not ""gonna deal with"" me since ""you've been calling me since 8:30."" I gently explain that I was in bed at 8:30 and this (10:00) is the first time I have called ever. He tells me I'm lying, is SUPER sarcastic, and REFUSES to let me speak to anyone else. He says the rest of the company is on vacation until Nov. 1, so he's the only one I can talk to. His explanation for their mistake in shipment is that ""it's halloween season"" so what do I expect? They won't refund me, and despite my reminder that this is THEIR mistake, he refuses (and seems to get joy out of it) saying there is no note saying I needed it by the 25th. \r\n\r\nTERRIBLE, sarcastic, bad business. DO NOT order from these people!

We have had excellant help at the Fantasy Costume business. We have no complaints. The store gets very busy at times, but they have been courteous and fun to talk with. They have even taken suggestions that we have offered. All in all, we are happy with what they offer us. Thanks

Wife ordered my childs simple mask online 2 weeks prior. 3 days before Halloween, we had to call and were informed they were not in stock, and we should have gotten an email. (No email!@)\r\nPlease do not use these !@#$@#$. \r\n

I am the head of design for hair and makeup at my (will remain unnamed) college. I called Fantasy Costume to make sure they had the brand of wigs I was looking for. I was told.. ""We have a wonderful array of many spectacular wigs."" I asked, ""Do you take purchase orders?"" ""Yes. Of course we do.""\r\n\r\nMy school is a 2 hour drive.\r\n\r\nI got there and there are wigs thrown everywhere. The Lacey brands wigs (which were grossly overpriced) were so scattered and in such disarray, I didn't even know where to start. So I didn't. I went to the less expensive, not so great quality, but still overpriced wigs. But they still didn't have what I needed.\r\n\r\nIn the meantime, I set my bag on the floor, next to my basket of wigs, as I was trying to make due. If people weren't asking who's bag it was, they were asking if they could help. Yay, help right? No. I finally thought, hey they want to help, let them. They had as little a clue as I did! Finally a girl, super nice, said are you doing a play? I was and she'd been in it twice! I love this girl. She was nice enough to offer their ""head..."" whatever they called her. She was the rudest! Yelling at this poor girl who was finally some help to me, rude to us. Ripped the pictures out of my hand and just started grabbing things off the wall without my feedback or approval.\r\n\r\nI was there for 2 hours!\r\n\r\nI go to pay, I hand her the purchase order. ""We dont take purchase orders."" (If you'll remember from the beginning of the store, I called specifically to ask if they took purchase orders.) ""I'd like to see the manager."" He came out was absolutely no help, practically called me a liar. Then slinked away like the litte worm he is.\r\n\r\nIt was a joke. I'll never go back and they've managed to lose out on all sorts of business.

Fantasy HDQ is the best place to go Halloween stuff. They're open during the rest of the year, as well. (Unlike those mall stores that only open to sell crappy Halloween stuff for a month or so.) The store is HUGE. It's an absolute madhouse around October but their costumes and masks and make-up are top-notch. I'm not sure of the deadline (for Halloween) but they will alter and custom-make customs.

Fantasy Headquarters is THE place to shop for your halloween costume in the city. They have all the popular costumes (this year, Star Wars and Batman are sure to be big), plus a large selection of wacky, wild, and scary ones too. They have all the accessories you need to top off your costume, including wigs, fake blood, makeup, and props. This is just a very cool place. Shop early though, because it is popular and items go very quickly.

This is by far the biggest and best selection of costumes and props in the city! They have everything imaginable to make a costume and everything is in stock, especiailly during Halloween.
Be warned that Halloween time is crazy and the costume rentals are taken quickly. Also, it is very crowded inside, so be prepared for some crowds.

PROS: Great selection
CONS:

I could not believe how big this store was when I first went there. If you are going to shop for a halloween or party costume at this store make sure you allow yourself at least 3 to 4 hours to look through their collection. You can either rent or buy at this store. Generally I buy the kids costumes and rent my own. The staff are very helpful in finding what you want. Their prices are very good. I havent seen one costume yet that was too expensive to buy or rent.

This place has it all! It's at least a full city block long and stocks every possible thing you could think of. From rented elaborate costumes for the very serious, to the cheap stuff for your standard witch or monster costume. They have an incredible selection of wigs and hats literally stacked to the ceiling as well as party supplies for the host. In the week or so prior to Halloween there's usually a line out the door so you should plan well in advance for this place. Metered street parking on Milwaukee, or there's a lot across the street.
