Wigs Costumes and Just a Fun Place

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!

They 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.

The 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.

It 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!

So when you think Buy Costumes - Go to Fantasy Costumes, its worth the trip!

Top Shelf Costumes and More

Just bought my Easter Bunny Costume from Fantasy Costumes.



I was so excited to come to Fantasy Costumes -- I mean they have been around for over 45 years and are the largest costume shop on the planet (maybe). They truly are a city block long and the staff is very cool to work with. I love the adult outfits and sexy shoes, but I was here for my Easter Bunny Costume. I found the perfect Bunny Costume and I can't wait for our family Easter Egg Hunt.



I never would of never believed anyone if they just told me about all the stuff they have here --- this is a must visit when you need costumes supplies. Of course you can go on-line and buy from them but you will miss the atomosphere. Its a very cool place to shop at and again the staff is very helpfull. I will be coming back for my kids Halloween costumes in September (need to come here early) but I think my husband and I need to come back soon for the adult section.

Overall
Just the Best Costume Shop Anywhere

Awesome Adult, Kids and Pet Costumes too ....

Fantasy Costumes has Costumes Galore. My Friend Dave from Advanced Web Marketing Services recommended me to Fantasy costumes. I could not believe the business was a block long and filled with every costume and party favors that I could imagine. Fantasy Costumes has a Fantastic selection of Adult Costumes and Kids Costumes. Plus they even have Pet Costumes. Very Cool place to visit and I could play dress up here for hours. I will never shop at those fly by night halloween Costume stores again. The staff was a pleasure to deal with and I am a fantasy Customer for Life.‎

Great Selection of St.Patty's Day & Halloween Gear !‎

Last Sunday my Childern and I drove from Westmont to Fantasy Costumes in Chicago to grab up some St.Pattys Day Gear.



We founds plenty of Leprechaun Hats, Green Wigs, Green Sunglasses, Beads and More! Of course my youngest Daughter Madeline wanted the Grean Beads with a Whistle on it that said I am Irish on one side and Blow Me on the other side. The kids tried on different masks and played with the electric shocking pack of gum as I picked out my Easter Bunny Costume. A little early to be thinking about Easter but I like to play the Easter Bunny at our Family Easter Egg Hunt. My son Payton bought a new Six Shooter, Marianna found a new Phatom of the Opera Mask and Danielle picked the Fart smelling gum. So much for getting our St Patricks Days supplies but we did pick up Green Make-Up for the St. Patty's Day Parade.



We Love coming to Fantasy costumes and can't wait until Halloween. We are gonna turn our yard into a Grave Yard and we will start buying more scary Halloween Props in July from Fantasy Costumes.

Best Costumes Anywhere !

"The Largest selection of Costumes Anywhere". Fantasy Costumes is a City Block Long with over a Million Items to choose from. Some people call their time spent at Fantasy Costumes - A Costume Craze but if you can Buy Costumes at a one place Shop and they have Kids Costumes and More, why go anywhere else. No Chicago Costumes retailer comes close to the selection of Fantasy Costumes - Party City, Spirit Halloween Costumes just can not compare to Fantasy Costumes selection or can Customize a Costume for you the way they do at Fantasy Costumes.



My family has been going to Fantasy Costumes for over 40 years and it just keeps getting better. Last year we had an Al Capone Party and we all dressed up like gangsters and my wife wore the Flapper Costume. We had a great time and Fantasy had all the accessories that we need to complete our costumes.



This years family reunion will be a 70's party and we already talked to Kathy about stocking the costumes we need in June. I am going as Under Cover Brother. Where is my Pic for my Fro!



Of course I'm too short too be Jimmy Walker, but I know my costume will be Dynomite because Kathy at Fantasy Costumes is getting it for me. The staff really knows costumes - not like those people at Spirit Halloween Costumes that are just part time help --- "These people live for Costumes".



My kids can't wait for Halloween - its like their own little Halloween Fashion Show every time we make the trip to Fantasy Costumes. When we went last year, Talyor Swift was shopping there and was nice enough to give my oldest daughter an Autograph.



Some of the items they offer are: Adult Costumes, Kid's Costumes, Pet Costumes, Party Supplies, Party Accessories & Makeup, Hats, Wigs & Masks, Decorations & Props, Mascot Costumes and of course the best Halloween Costume selection anywhere. To me they are AnytimeCostumes and costumes4less - they are open 7 days a week for any occasion. "So when your mind says buycostumes, go to www.FantasyCostumes.com"



Thanks for over 45 years of Service Fantasy Costumes.



Sincerely, Dave R & Family

Chicago Costumes Galore

Fantasy Costumes is THE BEST costume store I've ever been to!

They 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.

Anytime 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.

I 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 :)

Incredible Service

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!

Poorly run business, DO NOT order from website!

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.
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.

I 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.

TERRIBLE, 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

Incompetence Anyone...?

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.""

My school is a 2 hour drive.

I 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.

In 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.

I was there for 2 hours!

I 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.

It was a joke. I'll never go back and they've managed to lose out on all sorts of business.
