My 7-year-old son wanted to be a zombie for Halloween, and after looking at all the pictures of zombie costumes for kids on Spirit's web site, he selected the zombie football player. It was online only, so we couldn't look at it in the store. The jersey top and pants fit fine, but the "mesh scarf" and "helmet" were a problem. The scarf should have been attached to the top, but it was just supposed to go around his shoulders and kept coming off. A safety pin or a quick sewing job could fix that. However, the helmet was a bigger problem. It was squashed flat in the costume bag. We got it reshaped, but it looked ridiculous on because it's only the front part of the helmet, so instead of looking like a scary zombie from all sides, my son looked comical from the side and back. The elastic for the helmet broke as well. I borrowed a children's football helmet from a friend, and stretched the vinyl piece over the front of it. It didn't match of course, but it made it better. I had to remove the foam piece around the inside of the vinyl helmet piece so it would lie flat along the real helmet. All in all, a disappointment.
The jersey and pants are perfectly fine. The helmet, however, is a joke. It's only half of a helmet that you are supposed to wear by using the elastic strap under your chin (not shown in the picture). But the elastic strap is attatched by velcro which keeps coming undone.
Will have to go find another helmet and make it into a zombie helmet by adding fake blood, brains, etc. But that means spending even more money. Not a good value for the price without the helmet.
My grandson loves it. It combines two passions - football and zombies. What could be better! My only complaint is that the helmet is squished flat due to packaging. I stretched it over a ball to reshape it and that worked pretty well. He also put it over a regular helmet which worked great but it's not required. All-in-all a good choice.
The outfit is very nice and my son thought it was cool. The helmet was not what we expected. It is a piece that you have to cover over top of your own helmet. And the piece is only half of a helmet size. Very hard to shape this around a helmet and for it to stay. Also doesn't look authentic since it is only half covered. Kept product because could probably just use outfit without the helmet option.
Costume fits great. But helmet needs to be altered a bit to look authentic

The costume is terrible - it is not a real helmet (not even a plastic one which is what I would of expected. Its a one dimensional piece of rubber that is supposed to stretch over the front part of the head. At first my wife and I thought we must have misread the description and that the plastic went over the helmet but we reviewed again and it clearly says helmet. Do not buy this.
