I have been on a search for an alien costume for my son for about 6 weeks. We were looking for an alien that was not scary or violent looking, or something else that was non0violent and not TV related. I searched hundreds of web sites, ebay, and the local costume stores. Since we need our costume in September I start looking many weeks before the department stores have put out their Halloween costumes. We could not find an alien and so our search went later into the year than usual, late enough that the temporary Halloween Express opened its doors. We went in search of the elusive alien and again were disappointed. However Halloween Express did have a "super hero" costume that was not TV related, or at least not any show I have seen, Boogerman. The costume has the super hero look with a cape and mask, but he has a booger that hangs from his nose and belt. My son still wanted an alien, but being that he is in a size 12 the costumes in that size are slim pickings. The owners brother over heard our discussion and offered a rare opportunity. If we bought the costume that day he would allow us to exchange the costume between now and the end of September if they happen to get in an alien that would work for us. I was very pleased that he extended this offer to us. Except for department stores when you buy a costume you are stuck with it no matter what. The costume stores do not offer exchanges or refunds. From now on I will start with the Halloween Express web site, especially since now I now they are a locally owned.
