AnniesCostumes.com Exchange Policy
The costume industry standard has always been that there are no returns or exchanges due to the nature of the business. However, because of the fact that our items are bought over the Internet, cannot be tried on ahead of time and are bought site unseen, we have developed the following policy for exchanges. Of course, we hope that you are happy with your selection since costumes are meant to be fun and to have fun in. If for any reason you are not happy with your selection, our policy is as follows:
AnniesCostumes.com features many specialty items and therefore we only allow exchanges for costumes and merchandise. You will need to email us for an authorization to send back the merchandise you are exchanging for, see below for the instructions on what to do.
