The Hialeah Mom and the Last Minute School Play - Wonder Costumes Saves the Day
Parents with school age children understand the challenges of keeping up with classroom supply lists, and last minute requests for special projects and functions. Writing utensils, color pencils and paper are among the popular last minute items requested throughout the year--all of which are readily available at local retailers. However, the real challenge is finding a last minute costume for a school play or role playing classroom activity, especially if it is outside the Halloween season. One lucky Hialeah mom discovered Wonder Costumes while she was caught in a bind and learned that her child would never be unprepared for any costumed school event again.
This was a typical afternoon phone call at Wonder Costumes from a parent in dire need of an outfit for her child’s school play the next day. Martha was looking for a Hialeah costume store to supply her with a butterfly costume in her daughter Ana’s size, but no luck! As it turns out, most specialty costume stores only pop up during Halloween season with a somewhat decent assortment of costumes, and the few party supply stores that are left after October, only stock seasonal merchandise targeting current holidays. Unfortunately for Martha and Ana, there is no such thing as the ‘butterfly holiday’ during January. This was not a new thing for us, we told Martha that we receive phones calls like these almost everyday and we were well equipped to help her out. She was ecstatic and immediately got online to check out the website.
After browsing WonderCostumes.com for less than two minutes--literally--from the comfort of her home in Hialeah, Martha found nine different options for her daughter to choose from. Ana was aiming to be the star of the show so she opted for the higher quality ballerina style tutu with corset and wings. She was in love with her selection but wanted to make sure that the color was just right. Normally, Wonder Customers have the option to send the costume back for a replacement if it does not work out. However, the play was the very next morning and Ana, like many kids, was so excited about her participation that she forgot some of the “minor” details. Being in Hialeah meant that we were only a car ride away from our thrilled customers.
We welcomed Martha and Ana at our local office so that she may see the costume in person before purchasing it. It was *thee* one. No more second guesses, Martha and Ana’s smiles were picturesque. They knew they had found something special and we were honored to be a part of it. Martha shared that her daughter is enrolled in a magnet school for performing arts and her aspiring thespian daughter was often in the same predicament. It was never easy finding a Hialeah costume store and they often had to improvise costumes at home that never really made the grade. She had experiences with other online costume stores but they rarely delivered on time and if they did, the quality was sub par. Having Wonder Costumes so close to her Hialeah residence was a new found blessing. Not only are we close enough to ship to arrive very fast but we are also within driving distance for those real last minute emergencies--stocked with varieties of hard to find costumes all year long!
Our customer’s testimony is proof that we are doing something right. It is not fair for working parents to have such difficulty finding a costume all while their children are enrolled in schools that request costume after costume for all types of activities all year long. Martha promised that this would be the first of many times that she would contact Wonder Costumes for hard to find school play wardrobe.
If you are in Hialeah and find yourself in a similar predicament, please give us a call at 1-800-288-9916. We will be truly happy to serve you, especially if we can get you out of a bind. Remember that Wonder Costumes stocks affordable, hard to find costumes all year and they are shipped quickly from our Miami-Dade County headquarters.
