For those of you concerned about sizing, here is an explanation of what size my 21 year old son purchased.
Before purchasing this item online, my son decided he should check out the temporary Halloween store first to see if they had this costume. They did. In fact, it is the exact one shown here (Elope brand). Yep...same model wearing it and everything.
On the outside of the package it says:
Small/Medium: Fits up to 5'11" /195 lbs.
Large/X-large: Fits up to 5'11"/220lbs.
Ok. So my son is 5"11" and weighs about 162. He wears 30x34 jeans (his waist is really about 28/29" but he wears 30s). He is an athletic build, slender (not skinny)....
He chose the small/medium.
Fit: It fits nicely. Not tight and it didn't hang off him. It was not too short on him. It hits at just about his normal waist-line, maybe a little lower...but not much. The sleeves are long enough, they come all the way down to his hands. It looks good on him. He could easily wear a THIN shirt under it if he wanted to do so. One of his pieces of Under Armour would work, but nothing thicker than a thin tee shirt.
Sizing: The outside of the packaging says small/medium should fit up to 195lbs (and still be 5'11"). I do not see how this can be.....he is 165ish and it fit him like a normal shirt would fit. He likes his clothes to be a bit on the ''fitted'' side....so this was slightly looser than he likes, but it's a costume, after all...but still, 195lbs?? Put another 30lbs in that shirt and I think that's not going to look good. Perhaps if you are shorter than 5"11"?? Or maybe you might like looking like Bo Duke
(in his skin-tight t-shirt) dressed up as Waldo??
I would say this shirt would fit a person (at 5'11") maybe up to 180lbs. Of course, the more you weigh, the shorter the item may be on you...my son doesn't have a lot of meat on him, so it hits him JUST below his normal waist line.
Shirt: It's a 100% Polyester. Not a lot of give to it. Actually, it's pretty well made for a costume. It's thin, but not completely see-through. It has some weight to it.
Hat: 98% Polyester 2% Spandex. It fits him ok, it's snug....but not super tight. It has a little give to it, but not a lot . If you have a larger than average head...it probably won't work for you.
Glasses: Actually, they aren't too bad. There's pretty decent glass inside them. The ones that were in his package had no scratches or signs of wear. They are cheap, but not as cheap as I thought they'd be. The plastic is pretty thick, actually... They are hinged and have little screws in the bows. I am sure that if you are careful with them they will last a while. Don't treat them as you would a real pair of glasses.
There is NO scarf in this set. You have to buy that separate or make one.
Note: I saw one reviewer state that he received a shirt and it looked like the colors bled. I have not laundered this item. If you do, I would suggest hand washing it separately from other clothes, in COLD water..((after you have worn it to your party to be on the safe side)). As one commenter suggested, Amazon does take returns, so perhaps this item had been laundered and sent back, which then, unfortunately,went back into stock...
The thing I liked about buying this in a Halloween store is that there are NO returns. When you walk out the door, it's yours forever...so one does not have to worry about people doing stuff to an item which you may end up receiving.
So, there's my review. I see there's a lot of people asking questions about this set...so I hope it helps with those of you who have been wondering about this item. My son is wearing this to a college Halloween party....I'm sure he will have some pictures. I will post one later on....
Happy Halloween!! :)
Great Halloween costume. More realistic-looking than any DIY effort.
It was a little difficult to get on because the fabric doesn't stretch at all. I'd order a size up if you're worried about it fitting.
Also, although Waldo is traditionally hard to spot, it's not because of his outfit. I wanted to blend into a crowd and this outfit didn't help at all. In fact, it only drew more attention to me. I was easily spotted countless times. Strangers proclaimed, "I found you!" and "There's Waldo!".
In short, this outfit will only make you difficult to find if you're in a crowd of odd, brightly (or similarly) dressed people.
All-in-all, a decent buy for Halloween. It was worth the price!
• The shirt doesn't exactly feel fitted and neat by the collar, but as a costume, it does just fine. The beanie is a little tiny. I feel like it needs some length to it!
• I was the only Waldo at the party and people kept wanting to take pictures with me. Definitely brings us back!
