Skelita Calaveras Monster High Costume Review

My daughter is a huge Monster High fan. She has themed clothing, dolls, posters and everything in between. When I saw the opportunity to review the new Skelita Calaveras costume, I knew it was a perfect fit for her. Skelita is one of the newer Monster High characters and will probably be on a lot of wish lists this year. All I have to do is add shoes and a little makeup and she is ready to get some candy!

The brightly colored, wavy layers of the skirt make this an eye catching costume from the start. The colors are a bit different in the actual costume than they appear on the site. The blue shown above looks aqua on the site and the green is darker than it looks too. I don't think it makes any difference, and my daughter never even noticed. However, if you are buying accessories like bracelets or shoes to match, I would suggest going with a variety of colors or waiting until you have the costume in hand to make sure it is exactly what you had in mind.

The costume comes with the dress, belt, tights and gloves. The tights and gloves feature cool skeleton bones on them and the top has cute glittery stitched patterns with skulls. This fits perfectly with the darkness of the characters, without being too much for a little girl. It has a soft, velvety feel that I love too. This costume is sure to put the Scream Spirit in your Monster High fan!

Wholesale Costume Club offers a large variety of Girls Monster High costumes, so it shouldn't be hard to find one to suit the little girl in your life. They even suggest a nice selection of accessories, treat bags, makeup and safety lights at the bottom of each costume page. This makes it super easy to get the extras you want, without searching all over the site for them.

The sizing of this appears to run a bit small. I ordered a sz medium, which is normally a size 8-10. My daughter wears a size 8, which is usually a little big because she is so petite, but this fit her perfectly. She has room to move and can even layer under it if the weather is too cold. If I were looking for a size 10 though, I would personally order a larger version of this. You can grab this costume for only $21.98 for non members and $19.96 for members. You can also purchase the wig separately.

*I received the costume for review purposes. No other compensation was received, or expected, and all opinions are my own.
