How do you calculate shipping fee?

Upon receiving your order, a shipping fee will be calculated based on your destination and the package weight.

I use USPS as the shipping carrier, and your shipping fee will be calculated based on USPS website’s shipping guide and their costs.

After I ship your package, if the actual postage is less than you pay, I’ll refund the difference (min $1.00) right away.

You will never overpay for the shipping fee as I do not make money out of overcharged shipping fee.

I need a costume next week. How fast can you make & ship?

If you’re in a hurry to get a costume, please contact COSARU and ask if you can receive a package by your due date.

Order-made items cannot be shipped right away since they need extra sewing time.

Buying pre-made items will be the best option if you don’t want to wait extra 1-3 weeks of sewing time.
Pre-made items are usually shipped within 1-3 business days upon receiving cleared payment.

For faster delivery, I recommend you choose USPS Express Mail which has guaranteed next day (or 2-day) delivery for the most US areas.
Local pick-up is available, too.
