Too Soon for Halloween? Never! (A $250 Costume-Inspired Giveaway!)

This post is brought to you by 
ILYMTC and CostumeExpress.com. #OrangeTuesday

I know, I know. Summer has barely left the building and here I am writing about Halloween. I promise, however, it's all with good reason. 

If you're like me, the price of outfitting your family for Halloween can sometimes make you cringe worse than the gory zombie mask your 5 year old demands he wear for the occasion. Sure you could turn to Pinterest and flex your DIY muscles but as the saying goes, sometimes "ain't nobody got time for that." 

That's what makes today so special. The day after Labor Day, also known as Orange Tuesday in the retail world, is quickly becoming known as the Black Friday of Halloween. From costumes to party supplies and even Fall-inspired home decor, all thoughts from here on out begin to point towards the Halloween holiday. 

On this day, our friends at the family-friendly online costume retailer, CostumeExpress.com reveal the Top 10 costumes and decor items of the season. They also hold an amazing not-to-be-missed one-day sale offering 20% off your entire order as well as up to 88% off costumes. 

To help people choose their costumes for this Halloween season, the CostumeExpress Top 10 lists feature the top trending characters from the biggest TV and movie releases this year. Included are the following categories:

·         Adult Costumes
·         Kids’ Costumes
·         Girl’s Costumes
·         Boy’s Costumes
·         Tween Costumes
·         Group / Family Costumes
·         Pet Costumes
·         Yard Decorations
·         Porch and Indoor Decorations

Naturally in our house full of boys superheroes, ninjas and "bad guys" are all the rage. That's why we've decided to dress up as a "Super Family" this Halloween. Not even the dog was safe from this super mandate put into place by my 5 and 3 year old and what's even better is that once Halloween is over, these costumes will be retired to the dress-up bin for even more dress up fun throughout the year.

Shoppers are encouraged to sign-up for e-mails from CostumeExpress.com here at  to gain early access to sale items, exclusive offers and secret surprises surrounding the sale. There's also great deals on things like pumpkin carving accessories and Halloween party supplies.

In addition, CostumeExpress will be hosting an #OrangeTuesday Twitter Party on Tuesday, Sept. 8 from 12-1 p.m. CT to help inspire costume selection and offer tips and tricks for celebrating the season. Prizes include several $50 and one $100 gift code to CostumeExpress.com (see rules for details). Visit here to RSVP.
