Thank you for your feedback.
It fit perfectly and it was sturdy enough to last the holiday weekend.
I was very happy with the look of this costume and it came with lots of accessories to complete the look.
Good costume for the money, true to size fit.

    So, this costume comes with the brown "armor" with the attached red cape, a white tunic for underneath which is kind of like a satin/silky sleep shirt for girls, two bicep circlets, two forearm bands, a headband, and 2 shin covers.

    For reference: I am 5'9 and 170 lbs with an average-athletic build. I am not a muscle-bound gym rat, nor am I overweight. I have a solid frame with decent muscle mass. i bought the Medium and the fit of the tunic and armor pieces is just right.

    Issues: The image makes it look like the front of the brown armor is a solid piece. It isn't. It's more like a set of ribbons that hang down so when you move they swing and the white tunic underneath shows through. Also, the armor is only for the front. The only thing covering your back end is the tunic and the cape. The tunic ties in the back with a strip of fabric which seems like it will work well enough. The bicep circlets are velcro fastened, so you have to awkwardly set them over your biceps. They then either slip down because you flexed when you attached them or they constrict your arm when you do end up flexing. There is no elastic to allow these to flex over your biceps as you move, it seems like i will not be able to use these as they will not stay in place. The bands for the forearms ARE elastic and can be pulled to stay in place, but for my arms the taper is off and when the front part (towards the hand) is snug and in place, the back part (towards the elbow) is loose (oh well, it'll do). The headband looks ok, but i never intended to wear it. The leg pieces are also velcro fastened in 4 bands around the calf. i tried them on and it looks like they will stay in place.

    I purchased this for my teenaged sons. They are 5'10" or so and 180-ish. The Adult medium size fit them just fine. The fake leather part of the costume (brown) was, of course, all wrinkled when it arrived squished in the package. I was able to smooth it out by ironing on a low setting from the backside with a damp cloth. I think if you used a high heat the "fabric" would melt. So, be very careful! The white undergarment is very thin. You will need to wear shorts under it. The red cape is awesome. And, all the accessories that come with the costume are adjustable - the arm bands, the headband, the leg things...great stuff! The wrist covers are a little big but not overly so. The little kids at VBS this summer were very impressed with the "Roman soldiers" that came to see them.

    Husband wore this for Halloween. He says 4.5 stars would be more accurate - the arm bands and head band were pretty cheesy. The rest of the costume looked great. He has a bit of a belly, and it fit well and didn't look weird like some costumes can. Expect to wear something under it unless you enjoy a breeze. It really is like a huge white shirt with a brown apron and attached cape. He also bought the "Heavy Duty Plastic ROMAN LEG GUARDS gladiator costume," "300 The Movie, Spartan Shield, 17" Diameter," and "Rubies Long Roman Costume Sword." They were all pretty good, too. FYI, this costume doesn't include a sword and those aren't sandals, just leg wraps, so prepare to find those separately. He wore some Army green KEENS and they looked like part of the costume.

    This is actually a cool costume and if you have a sword, makes a convincing gladiator.
    The brown part of it, is only a front, that you wear over a white sort of dress.
    But with the cape hanging over, it looks really nice.
    For the shoes, you will need to wear sandals with the fake shin shields.
    The wrist bands are a bit flimsy, but they still work for a costume party.
    You might have to iron the cape and skirt, be careful not to melt it...

    Great costume. Used in recreating the crucifixion of Christ. The only part of the costume we did not use was the upper arm bands as they don't necessarily fit everyone's biceps and are not adjustable. But, everyone loved the costumes and it completely gave an authentic look to the interactive workshop. These were used for Roman soldiers. All costumes remained intact after being used continually for two weeks and ready to use for next year.

    I wear an XL and bought the XL. I felt it was a little large for me. I'm 6 foot tall and about 190. Total Dad Bod, I have skinny arms though, so the cuffs were oversized, and the arm bands just made my arms look smaller. The leg wraps stayed pretty well and didn't try to work around my leg too much as I had feared they would.

    I know that sounds like a lot of negative, but that is about it. After that I would say that this was a very successful Halloween costume. I looked pretty good in it, and looked like I spent more than I actually did on it. At least when comparing to what my friends spent on their costumes, this was a great buy and well worth the money. Make sure you get some brown sandals though, it does look pretty odd if you don't have the footwear to match. If you can find some like the model has you'll be set.
