HalloweenMart Batarina Costume {Review & Gift Card Giveaway} CLOSED

It’s almost Halloween again, which means it’s time to start thinking about costumes! I love Halloween so much and enjoy playing dress up! With 5 kids to get costumes for, I normally start looking for costumes a few months prior to Halloween. With 3 boys and 2 girls selecting costumes is so much fun!

Websites like HalloweenMart have 100’s of Halloween costumes for all sizes and different themes for any age group. HalloweenMart has so any costumes for infants, toddlers, teens and adults! There is almost everything you can think of being for Halloween on their website.

From their website

In honor of our 15th online anniversary, HalloweenMart has expanded our vast selection of Halloween costumes and accessories even further. From pop icons like Michael Jackson to storybook staples like “Alice In Wonderland,” we offer Halloween costumes as varied and unique as our customers–with outfits that range from current to classic.

I recently had the opportunity to work with HalloweenMart on a review! I received the Batarina costume for my 4 year old daughter! The Batarina costume is a combination of a punk ballerina and bat. I say it has a punk/goth look due to the colors being dark. Black and purple create a punk style ballerina set to fly away that is adorable! Bat ears,wings, and a tutu complete the look that is fun for any little girl.

The Batarina costume is $24.99 and available in a size 3t-4t. The costume includes the Tutu dress with matching bat wings, glovelets and bat ear headband. The tights shown on the modle do not come with the costume, but ca be purchased separately.

The stretch bodice dress is a very deep plum purple in the front with black sided. Black sequins create crossed lines across the front of the TuTu that start at the top and  run down to the tutu material. Layers of purple and black mesh create the frilly tutu shirt that is attached to the dress. The tutu is evenly rounded, just like a regular tutu, but it has a layer of purple that has a ripped up rugged look that hangs down almost to knee length.

The shoulders of the dress are topped off with a lighter shade of purple Tulle/Marabou material to add frill to the shoulder area. A bow is in the middle of the shoulder mesh that can be tied.

The bat wings are made with wire to hold the shape and have elastic arm bands, so they slip right on. When they are on, the tulle arm puffs cover the arm bands of the wings, so you can not see them.

I am very happy with the Batarinacostume! For the price, it is perfect, I really  could not have asked for a cuter costume! My daughter looks adorable in it and she was excited to get it!

Instead of purchasing the tights, I decided to use a solid black pair of tights we already had. For shoes, my daughter had a black pair of ballet slippers, that worked great with the costume.

Working with HalloweenMart was easy, the only hard part was selecting the costume I wanted! When my costume was ordered, I had it in just a few days.
