"My 9 year old wore this to the community costume contest and won first place. We added rubber "cut off" legs I found from the halloween store, he held onto the "knees" and made the legs "kick". I made a "fin" and velcroed it to the bottom to hide his legs. Everyone loved this costume, he said he felt like a celebrity in it. :) While I would recommend this for a contest or parade, I'm not sure it would work that well for trick-or-treating. He wore another costume for that because, while there are holes for your hands to come out of the front and hold a bag, the legs just hang then and the effect of the costume is lost. Overall, a great costume."
"We had a lot of fun with this costume. My tall 5 year old wore this for the community costume contest and won first place. I had him hold a jack-o-lantern with a wig and a lantern, added black pants and boots, and it was a hit! He did not have any trouble with the eyeholes in the "mask" and was able to see fine. The only drawback was that the "mask" material is a very thick plastic and does not allow for air circulation at all, so he was very sweaty when he took it off. That did not bother him though. He loved it!"
