This Halloween season, bring the legend of Sleepy Hollow to life in this Adult Headless Horseman Costume, and persuade Ichabod Crane to leave Sleepy Hollow! Wear it with your own black pants, or buy ours, and add black boots and gloves; and for an even more realistic touch, carry one of our pumpkins as a prop. to complete the spooky look. Contrary to what some might mistakenly think, Crane himself was NOT the Headless Horseman. He was the local schoolmaster, a very superstitious man whose marriage proposal to the daughter of a wealthy local farmer had just been rejected. Late at night he was riding his horse back to the fictional village of Sleepy Hollow when he encountered a cloaked rider. Ichabod had heard local stories of a Revolutionary War soldier who haunted the area after having his head blown off by a cannonball; sightings of the Headless Horseman were said to be an omen of death. Ichabod Crane was never seen in Sleepy Hollow again. The next morning his unsaddled horse was found wandering, the saddle trampled, and a smashed pumpkin lying alongside Crane's hat beside the road. - Shirt w/ attached cape - Headpiece - Inflatable shoulder component

The size that I bought is a Large- (Adult Size). This size will fit a person up to about 6-feet tall, and a weight of around 175-200 pounds. I just put the costume on one of my mannequins. I have 3-different size mannequins, and the one in these Pictures stands about 6-feet tall. The Headpiece comes folded in half, so you're going to have to use a blow-dryer to fix it if you want to remove the creases/dents and return it to it's original shape. For me, it wasn't hard to see thru the fabric, and I also had no problems breathing thru it either. Overall, I like it.

Now for my experience. I am 6'-4" and about 185 lbs. The costume fit nicely. The cape and shirt are one piece. The inflatable shoulder pieces are a bit of a drag to inflate. They have valves in them to keep the air in while you're blowing them up, which is nice, but you have to get them just right to inflate them easily. The strings that are attached to the shoulder pieces should be replaced before wearing the costume. I re-tied them so that I would have to cut them off at the end of the night. They still came loose. The rubber "neck" fit well enough. I had to reshape it a bit with a hair dryer, but it wasn't hard to do. I managed to try on the costume by myself when it arrived. I don't think you should get dressed without help for a party. It's far too cumbersome to finesse it alone.
The few downsides to the costume are negligible, but worth mentioning. I fixed the few functional issues easily. As far as looks, I found the black cape and shirt looked too shapeless. Both are the same shade of black, so it looks like a black blob with no detail in low light. I dressed up the costume by gluing and pinning a few things on, and adding a little paint. I've included photos of before and after.
Functionally, the neckband that you look through, keeps slipping down. I fixed that issue by attaching small velcro strips to the neck. I used small pieces and did a quick stitch to put them on. They have adhesive on the back, but I didn't trust it to stay all night without some stitches in it. The shoulders were the worst part for wearing all night. They often shifted forward, and at times looked weird. I had to adjust them often through the night. Get stronger strings or shoelaces to tie them on, you could add a few safety pins to help keep them more secure.
The rubber cap is hot to wear. I wore a bandana over my short hair and it was soaked halfway through the night. So wear a thin cloth or t-shirt fabric on your head, otherwise you'll have an uncomfortable and wet rubber hat on all night.
With a few scraps of extra fabric, some spooky cloth, Spanish moss, and cheese cloth, I dressed it up a bit. You can throw almost anything Halloween at this and it will make a difference. It just took some glue and safety pins, plus a few accessories like gloves and a belt.
The costume was a hit at the party and I won a prize. It has a few minor issues that can be easily fixed.
