- Cute costume (for groups)
- Great for last minute plans
- Neat inflatable (and lightweight) pack
This is an awesome costume to order for a last minute group appearance. And, let's face it, the lightweight pack is always going to be fun to play with.
This costume doesn't fit larger bodies well, so you may need to think that through.
We totally get the versatility of this awesome Halloween costume. It works for both men and women (especially now - perhaps not so much in the 1980s), and you could even attend a party solo wearing this costume. But, you could also grab several costumes to arrive as a group. And then there's the fact that you could call this classic or cutting edge. Given the price, simplicity, and the quality, we really like this piece.

What’s it made of? The jumpsuit is made of a polyester cotton blend. And it's not ridiculously cheap material either. There are even real zippers on the pockets. The inflatable backpack can take water if you really wanted to carry around something heavy. But, would you?
Will you need extra bits? You shouldn't need anything additional unless you're trying to make this costume as realistic as possible. In other words, you shouldn't buy it for a convention (of any sort), but it's great for parties or handing out candy on Halloween.
Is it hand wash only? As you would expect. And... the manufacturer wants you to stay away from bleach and hot water. We think that's sort of a no-brainer, but we're putting it out there.
Will it break the bank? Most people will pay between $25 and $50 for this costume. You won't need anything else and it does hold up remarkably well, so it is good value for the pricy. But, the $50 will still feel like a lot to some people.
