Shipping and Payment

Shipping and Payment Policy

We accept Paypal, credit cards, interac direct transfers, and ship worldwide using a variety of methods. All prices are in US dollars. Please keep in mind while estimating arrival time that to keep prices low and offer a wide range of color combinations almost all items are made as soon as the order is received. Construction time ranges between one and three weeks depending on the size, complexity of the order, colour choice, and how busy we are. Larger orders may take slightly longer especially if supplies need to be ordered in. Please e-mail us after you place your order with the date you need your outfit so we can add a note to our cutting list and double check your shipping and sewing options.

We can make your item with rush production for an extra $7.50 for 6-9 business day production (if it takes a day or two longer to sew we will use your rush fee to upgrade you to a faster shipping method). You must select these options on the product page for each item in your order. We are extremely sorry but we are not able to take 2-4 business day rush orders during our Halloween busy season. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has made international shipping times harder to predict. Although here where we are delays aren't that bad, the postal service has been unpredictable and even the fastest and most expensive methods have been randomly delayed. So it's impossible to say whether the normal shipping time will occur with all the unexpected COVID-19 delays worldwide. Please keep in mind that unfortunately delays beyond our control may occur and try to give yourself at least one extra week in case of local delays.
