"This company ROCKS! I ordered something and it was too big. Their return policy was super easy and when I called and spoke to Rachael about adding something to my order she took care of everything over the phone and even ensured I would have my costume by Oct 25th. In this world where customer service seems to be a thing of the past it is so nice to deal with a company that puts customer service first! Well done!"
