No Prices Listed Policy

We often get asked why we do not list our prices. Here are the reasons for our policy:

  • Material costs in the USA fluctuate greatly (these days everything is going up)
  • Materials from Brazil fluctuate with the dollar (the dollar has been falling for months)
  • We make 90% of our costumes to order and prices are adjusted accordingly
  • We are always changing designs and often have updated designs for photos on our website
