Our primary shipping is to addresses in the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Guam, Canada & Mexico. We do offer international shipping to most destinations. Rates vary greatly and we do our best to offer a fair quote. If after placing your order, we find that your item cannot be shipped for the amount charged, we will contact you via the e-mail address you provided upon creating your account with an updated shipping quote. We cannot guarantee time frames on International Orders. While most orders arrive within 6-10 business days, delays in customs can occur and are completely outside of our control. We only accept payments in US dollars. However, PayPal makes international payments in different currencies very simple. Ownership of products transfers to you upon delivery to the carrier. We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.
Most orders ship (leave our warehouse) within 1-2 business days from the time the order is placed. Business days are weekdays Monday - Friday and DO NOT include Saturdays, Sundays or US Holidays.

Please note: Costume styles can change without notice due to a change in the manufacturer's production. These changes, no matter how slight, are beyond our control nor are we given advance notice by the manufacturer of these changes. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We'll post any changes made to costumes in the web site descriptions and images as soon as we find out about them. Thank you for being patient with us with this issue. Costumes are non-refundable after October 10.
Many of the items on our site are of a unique nature, such as: Edible Icing Wraps and Designs, Royal Frosting Flowers, and Sugar Decorations. Items of this nature can and do vary slightly in manufacturing. Just as fabrics can have a dye lot, these items can vary from batch to batch as well as within the batch due to the nature of the products they are created from. In addition, they may occasionally contain a slight imperfection. We will never knowingly send a glaring imperfection; however, slight imperfections are the nature of the product and may occur occasionally. Thank you for your understanding.
ORDER CANCELLATIONS & CHANGES
Because we offer rapid order processing, in most cases, we cannot make changes to your order once it has been submitted. We understand that sometimes, a change can occur that would cause you to need to cancel your order. We want to assist you as best we can. If your order has not yet shipped, we will attempt (but cannot guarantee) to cancel your order and refund your purchase minus a 75 cent cancellation fee. Unfortunately, the payment processing company keeps a fixed fee whether the order is shipped or not. If we are able to cancel your order, you will receive an email confirmation of the cancellation and subsequent refund, minus the fee kept by the payment processing company.
We do our very best to make sure our products are as close to the exact product as possible in both our product images and descriptions. However, certain circumstances may cause actual product size and color to vary from that presented on our website. Due to the many variations in computer monitors and internet browsers, product colors may appear somewhat different on various monitors. Color reproduction from computer to computer and across internet connections is not precise.
