You know these creatures. You've spent many a night with them, worried for the future. Now you can emulate complete terror with this costume. It's a complete set (that does require handwashing) and just a note, you'll want to order a few sizes up. These babies run small.

What Reviewers Say:

If you're looking for the thoughts of other guys that have pranked their friends with this bad boy, you've come to the right place.

  • my son wore this for Halloween and it scared the bejeezers out of some of the cutesy trick or treaters. This is what Halloween is supposed to be like..lol
  • i have to say the overall look of the suit is fantastic and won me 1st prize!!
  • It may be a good start to a basic Predator costume.

Loved the movies? You might just feel the same way about this costume. Most men report that this costume fits as expected. Of course, they may gripe about the hand washing it requires, but that's par for the course, isn't it?

What Reviewers Say:

For a Halloween costume, this has pretty decent reviews. Considering everything is polyester and plastic, that's pretty good. 

  • For the price, this is a pretty solid Iron Man costume. Its all one jumpsuit, so there are few things to go missing.
  • A little bit lose, but I was pleasantly surprised to see the material when I received the costume! Costume is made of good material! For the price I paid, the costume was more than I expected. The padded chest and boot covers were not bent. Was packaged correctly.
  • The costume is good...could do with more closures in the back.

We don't recommend that you change your work clothes to wear this costume every day, but it'll be a blast on Halloween - especially if you have the sweet moves to go with it. Most people claim the product fit as expected, so you can order rather quickly (without having to think about it). Of course, you'll want to read what others have to say first.

What Reviewers Say:

Most reviewers are pleased with this costume; here's what they have to say:

  • Very nice material for the accessories. Fits as expected

    I'm 5'11" and in shape. Fits great.
  • Fit as expected. Very popular costume.

You're a good guy most of the time, aren't you? Take Halloween as your excuse to be the baddie for once. This custom is quick and easy, and you can customize it just as fast. Most people feel the costume fits according to the size listed, but what counts is how cool you'll look wearing it.

What Reviewers Say:

So what do most people think about this costume?

  • I was a little worried about the painted on bags (The belt) because i'm slapping together a dead pool costume. Im trying to get legit pouches, mag clip pouches,and a harness. When i opened up the package, i was surprised and happy to see that the pouches on the waist, were actually a belt!
  • Just amazing. I love it. I'm a big deadpool cosplayer, and I love it. the only down side was the mask was so small it did not fit. the rest was awesome. The second and last downside is the back is not zipper, it has only 2 extremely small Velcros to hold it together, which suck. but that can be modified.
  • Been a Deadpool fan for ten years now, it's great to see him picking up steam... Finally! The costume is amazing. It fits great, and looks even better. Highly recommended for anyone who doesn't have the perfect body to pull off the spandex look. LoL. May want to get Velcro strips to close up the back and a turtle neck to cover gap from mask to suit, but a great product over all.

No matter what you think about this villain, you know it's going to creep your friends completely. And with a relatively high review score (for a costume on Amazon), you can guess that you'll pull this look off almost effortlessly. Go on... you know you want to.

What Reviewers Say:

If you're going to spend this kind of money on a costume, you want to know that it does what it claims.

  • This Joker costume is nearly perfect, but not quite there. I'm 5'11" and 200 lbs and ended up ordering the large. When I opened the package it was nice to see this came with a zipper bag around the costume on a hanger, so storage wouldn't be an issue. Upon opening the costume I got to examine each piece of the costume and was pleasantly surprised for the most part.
  • Actually this really isn't a costume...it is a real suit, tie, vest, etc, with a makeup kit. The clothes will last forever, unlike the cheap "throwaway" costumes in the stores. As soon as I received it I was blown away by the quality.
  • Overall, the costume is extremely great, especially when compared to others on the market. Almost everything fit well and a big plus is that the coat is lined (many other versions of the jacket are not).

Thank heavens there's a costume that doesn't make you feel like you're wearing a leotard or a loin cloth and still looks as bad as bad can be. Really, this is truly an impressive get-up and you want it. You know you do.

What Reviewers Say:

If you're going to pay more than $30 for a costume, you want to know it's worth it. This is what reviewers have to say:

  • This costume was awesome and made me feel badass all night.
  • the base of the costume is fantastic. It comes with a ruffled, white shirt of decent quality, and the jacket is separate and of great quality for a costume. Easily the best quality of a Halloween product I've purchased. The cape is a third piece, and really adds that extra touch. The belt is of that latex/rubber feel, like any mask,which is the cheapest feeling parts of the costume, but they've held up over repeated use. There is also a thin, elastic band pair of brown pants, that i wore over regular jeans, to give it a more substantial feel.
  • I absolutely loved this. I was looking for a costume that satisfies my geeky side and was happy to have found this. I agree that the glove is of low quality and won't survive rough handling, but if your gentle, you will be fine. The fabric feels of good quality and really made me feel like I'm Ezzio. Great Job, Leg Avenue. I was so happy that I even did a photoshoot!

This costume rocks - as it should do for the price. And, you're not going to find a better Batman costume for under a grand. Seriously. So, it's worth taking a look. Actually, it's worth buying now.

What Reviewers Say:

The results are in, this costume is about as badass as it comes. Take a look at what people are saying.

  • it is a great base to a batman suit. Just customize a bit, buy a separate mask and boots, I bought this for a comic book convention and by just changing those two parts I had hundreds of pictures and compliments. It is really a good batman costume
  • This costume has some great points and a few flaws. If youre a cosplayer this has some great pieces to it at a reasonable price. I paid about $260. The cape is great on this and came with small posing sticks and was really well made. Youll eventually have to change the clasp though. As a general costume its not bad at all but the boot covers like most boot covers are a joke. Mine also came with a good fitting mask that will take little adjusting. The gloves are pretty awesome as well. All around I'm pretty happy for what I got at the price but would definitely not pay any higher.
  • A+++++

This is a serious costume. You shouldn't get it unless you're committed to it. After all, it's not cheap. It is, however, as badass as can be. One warning, it will give children nightmares, so be careful.

What Reviewers Say:

If you're going to pay this much, you need to know what you're getting. Here's an idea.

  • Overall I would recommend this armor/helmet combo for anyone who doesn't want to assemble their own but is not afraid of making some slight modifications. I think that $530 is a fair price, but wish that it came with a better helmet. I can see why anyone who paid over $800 for this when it first came out would be very disappointed. But with a little bit of work (about an hour total for me) this will get you an extremely "realistic" looking stormtrooper. Please note that it doesn't come with boots, neck seal or blaster.
  • Can't go wrong with a stormtrooper outfit. I think my legs are a little short, as the thigh pieces bunch up in the groin area. Now I know why you hardly see any stormtroopers running in the films.
  • Even though the product didn't fit me too well I'm 5 foot 9 guy and its recommended for people most likely like 6 foot so I knew it wasn't going to fit that well. But I had a great time making modifications to it. I do comic con and sakura con emerald city you all them conventions. So making cosplays is one of my hobbies so I spent like a good 2 weeks to a month making extreme modifications to it to my size. And damn what can I say it looks BADASS. So even if it doesn't fit that well you'll still have a great time and get LOTS OF PHOTOS TAKEN. Oh man you'll feel like hawt shiet for awhile ;p

This looks incredible, doesn't it? And you know it's the stuff of nightmares. Your children will be terrified, your colleagues will be freaked out. And you'll feel like the supreme badass every time you put this on. You're going to love it.

What Reviewers Say:

This costume isn't cheap, so you want to know what you're getting, right?

  • The costume is made of half way decent material. The Pleather jumpsuit is extremely warm so don't wear it in the summer. The visual looks are overall authentic, didn't have any major complaints and only compliments when I wore the costume. Overall I would say it's realistic looking. I did have to make some alterations in order to accommodate me.
  • Fantastic! XLarge fit as expected!
  • By far the best Darth Vader costume on the market
