Adult version - costume is cute but runs big, accessories are terrible and the picture is very misleading!
on September 26, 2012
I'd probably give this a 2.5 if I could. The dress part is very cute and based on other people's reviews that it ran big I bought it in a size large instead of the plus-size version. I wear b/t a 14-16 and am very busty and this fit me well, although it's a bit loose even on me. There is no way this would fit someone who is a size 10! The accessories are awful - they are not the same ones in the picture at ALL. The pictures shows a leather look belt, headband, and bracelets and a cape with a leather-look neck attachment. In the actual product these are all made of a stretchy padded nylon that is of lousy quality and oddly seamed. I haven't even bothered to take the boot covers out of the bag they look so pathetic - the model is clearly wearing a pair of custom boots that have nothing to do with what you actually get. Finally, the neckband on the cape is very, very small. I have a feeling that no matter which size you order you get the same accessories, and I'm betting those accessories are the ones that actually fit a small costume. On one level, I'm pissed that the company is getting away with using such a misleading picture and such terrible accessories - on the other level, the costume itself is well-done, very sexy and I can find ways to make the accessories work. But I shouldn't have to - it should be as pictured.
