The second masterstroke is the head piece - it just sits on top of the body piece, allowing me to easily push a drink under the flap and comfortably consume beverages.
But my favorite is dancing in this thing! Get prepared for everyone to shout "GO Slimer! Go Slimer!"
One problem - peeing. Luckily the back-zipper is surprisingly easy to manage on your own, but bathroom breaks were a bit of a pain.
When I first received the costume I was concerned that the small, 4-AA battery powered fan that keeps the suit inflated was underpowered. Once I donned the suit, it became apparent that the manufacturer did their homework in this area and used an appropriate size fan. The suit stayed inflated easily, and I had a lot of people asking if it was filled with padding since it kept its shape so well. It was easy to get on (with help from someone to close the zipper in the back). The inside of the suit remained a comfortable temperature, which is probably based on the fact that the ambient temperature (inside a house) was comfortable. I would be concerned that using this outdoors in a cold environment would require wearing some warm clothes underneath.
The suit seems to be robust enough for normal use, with no obvious problems with seams being misaligned or open. The elastic bands around the arms and legs do a good job keeping the suit in place while also reducing air loss.
There are a few areas where the suit could be improved (as with any product that is offered at a reasonable cost). Here is my list:
1) The suit (made of polyester) has wrinkles. They aren't particularly noticeable when it is inflated, but they are there and I couldn't figure out a safe way to remove them.
2) The neck drops straight down from the sides of the head, while in the movie it is more distinctly a neck. This is the one biggest visible critique I have of the suit.
3) The shoe covers are two flaps of material that are supposed to lay over the tops of your shoes, but I noticed that they tended to flap around as I was turning, occasionally feeling like I was going to trip on untied shoelaces. If they were affixed to your shoes (elastic band, velcro, double-back tape), that would help. Alternatively, you could get some disposable, white high-top boot/shoe covers and tuck the material flaps into the top of them.
4) The gloves are "short." They extended just to my wrist, which meant that I needed to pull the sleeves down past my wrist to cover my skin, so they really should be a bit longer. An additional enhancement would be to make them 3-finger "cartoon-hand" gloves, as in the movie.
Overall, it's a nice costume.
The fan part worked very well to inflate the costume & it helped keep the occupant from feeling overheated. The rustle-prone fabric doesn't breathe well, picture the thin jackets we called 'windbreakers' back in the day before 'hoodies'. As part of a group that dressed in theme, and made a grand entrance together, it was a success. However he eventually had to remove it so he could sit down.
