"These were sized way too large for my 11 year old child - were not even worn for trick or treat. Immediately ripped off his hands and left home. The Master Chief costume looks fine without them, and considering the high cost of the item, I would pass if I were purchasing this again."
Title: Anxiously Anticipated, Was only OK in Real Life
Date:November 5, 2012
"My 11 year old son desperately wanted this costume. He normally wears a size 10 clothes. This item was way too big for him, however, it has enough fudge factor built into the item that he was able to scrunch the long legs and long arms to make it work. The waist belt has a tie in the back that allows it to be customizable - it was pulled very tight for my son. The whole costume is indeed representative of the Master Chief character, but somehow lacked any "wow" factor. I am not a costume designer, and don't really know how to improve it, but for the price, I expected something more impressive. My son opened the package, said - wow! Thanks so much mom! and then wore the costume, but never seemed excited like he usually is about costumes.
Bottom line - it is a fine costume, but I would not say that there is anything super special about it. Price is HIGH."
