Things To Consider When Buying Fancy Dress Costumes

Comfort

Sometimes fancy dress costumes can be made of materials which can be scratchy or uncomfortable. Opt for costumes that look soft and comfortable to wear.

If the costume material is super thin, then think about buying a bigger size so you can layer it over warmer clothes if necessary.

Your child is only going to get fed up quickly if they don’t feel completely comfortable while wearing their costume.

Kids Interests

Choose a costume which your child will be excited to wear. If they are a fan of a particular superhero let them pick their costume as you’ll be sure to get the best use out of it then.

Quality

Choosing a better quality costume, which may happen to be more expensive, may save you money in the long run as the costume can be worn time and time again.

A high quality costume should have a better fit, be made of more durable fabrics and look more authentic.

Price

The price of fancy dress costumes for kids can vary from anything between £14-£40. It’s up to you how much you want to or can afford to spend.

Sometimes you can find a really reasonably priced costume, which is still comfortable and can be worn more than once.

Final Thoughts

My top pick overall is the Melissa & Doug Astronaut Costume because you get the full kit (suit, gloves, helmet, name tag).

It’s machine washable and receives excellent feedback from parents – a whopping 89% gave it 5 stars out of 5.

If you are looking for a helmet (to add to a suit) then take a look at the Aeromax Helmet with Movable visor. It’s available in white or pink and has lots of good detailing.

I hope this list of the best astronaut costumes was helpful.
