Super Mario For A Day Courtesy Of Costume Discounters

I was thrilled to be contacted by the fine people from to see if I’d like to review one of their products.

Clearly, as a Dad blogger and the owner of adorably cute children, they knew that my kids would look great in any of their costumes.

Unfortunately, they didn’t know that I am also a lover of wearing costumes, so I threw them a curve ball and ordered one for myself! Here’s the proof:

I have to say, the costume showed up in record time and all in one piece. My dealings with the fine folks at Costume Discounters were nothing but spectacular and I absolutely recommend them for all your costume needs!

Back to me for a minute though….I wanted to really test out the costume so that my review reflected the product and wasn’t just lip service to a client. I decided to test it out to see how it worked in real life situations.

You know, things like pretending to drive while playing MarioKart on the Nintendo Wii:

I also put it to the ultimate test by making dinner for my family. Spaghetti, a Mario specialty! From scratch too!

The costume passed all other tests it was given and is still in tip top shape and ready for my son’s Mario party next weekend. Seriously, I’m using it to entertain all the children at my son’s birthday party. Don’t worry, I’ll post videos!

In all seriousness, everything at is of the highest quality and I dare you to find a place to get your costumes for a cheaper price (making your own doesn’t count!). For real, if you find an identical costume for less on the net, they will match the price AND give you an additional 20% off!!

Make sure to check out their Facebook Page for more great deals and information.

Thanks to the staff at for providing me with the costume in order to facilitate this review.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have a long day of plumbing ahead of me and I’m out of here! (I think that’s still Mario’s profession…)

    Great Chris now I have to keep my kids off your blog or they’ll expect me to be open to ordering a Cinderella costume or something!

    SO. MUCH. FUN. I would be tempted to get something for my kids, BUT, then I’d have to choose between them. Clearly the logical explanation is to get something for myself. OR subject my husband to it. Hmmmm. 😉

    OMG Chris you are too funny. Might need to get that spaghetti a la Mario recipe – but if it involves dressing up….

      I only know how to cook while dressed up. Otherwise I am just dressed up as lazy dad and have no idea what to do in the kitchen.

      I haven’t thought about Halloween yet, my costume tastes change from week to week! I hope they enjoy them as much as I did!
