This costume is really fun. My 13 year old daughter loves it, especially with all the alien talk again lately. The blower motor comes attached and ready to go. You just put in batteries and get in. It is ready to go in seconds. As you can tell it looks like the alien is taking the person away. If the person wearing it goes backwards, it is truly memorable. You will get lots of first looks in this and then it can keep people attention as you move around in it!
