Comments about Spirit Halloween Adult Medusa Costume - Deluxe:
Costume fit as expected and was comfortable to wear. The head piece that comes with this costume is garbage.

Yes was a great custom
It worked out great and was a hit for Halloween
Great could be better
The outfit actually worked out for Halloween except the armband snake. It would not stay on so didn't really use it which kind of sucked otherwise it was great.
I loved it!
Got this in the mail very quickly and it is very true to size. It fit a little big, but with the sashes I was able to make a belt. I loved it especially because it was a little cold on hallloween this year. The head dress is a little flimsy, but I was able to keep it in one piece. I would recommend this costume. :)
I would continue to purchase my costumes from Spirit.
Loved the costume. Size was true but the head piece was disappointing.
Fairly poor quality overall
Arm piece won't stay in place.

Cheap and Broken
It took almost 2 weeks for this stupid item to come in. When I ordered it, the sizing said standard, I received it and it was a size X-LARGE, and the accessorie pieces came broken. Worst purchase ever!!

We'd be happy to set you up with a replacement to ensure you get the fit and accessories you expected. We sent you an email and hope to hear from you soon!
Excellent value. See you next Halloween!!

Best Medusa Costume for the price point
Purchased for my annual Halloween Party. Headdress was most impressive part of the costume. Dressed it up by adding some red glitter to the eyes and some bronze glitter to the crown. Other reviews were correct about the discomfort, but adding a little padding to the front worked great. Dress was comfortable and easy to tailor to fit by wrapping the straps around my waist. Dress was slightly above ankle length on me (5'6").

Too much money for the "quality" of the costume

About Me Adventurous, Trendy
I actually purchased this costume a couple years ago but hadn't worn it. I decided that I wanted to dress as Medusa this year and when I took a good look at the costume, I wasn't pleased. I like the dress, but at 5'1, it is too long, so I'm going to need to shorten it. I did not like the headdress, so I threw it away. I am going to make my own with a Medusa wig and snakes I got at the dollar store. As for the armband, I will probably use it as a necklace or bracelet...it won't stay on my arm no matter how much I try to adjust it!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Adventurous
I bought this for my teen daughter. It can be conservative, or adult. I will wear it next year to a costume party. It's adorable, can be sexy on an adult, and the head piece is great! I was worried the head piece would be too plastic/fake looking, but it went well, and works great on this costume. Definitely a good buy.

Not one size fits all
By Evil genius
from Redwood City, CA
About Me Classic
It's marketed as one size fits all, but as a smaller person (5'4", 115#) it kind of hangs like a sack. For someone of average size (the package says size 12-14, but I would imagine it runs smaller than this), this might work especially if accessorized with a wig and some additional jewelery.
Guest Services Response:Thank you for your feedback on the Adult Medusa Costume. We are sorry to hear you had a sizing issue with this product. Please refer to the sizing chart to ensure the best fit. If you have any other concerns please contact us via Live Chat so we may better assist you.

About Me Conservative
Advertised on website as standard size only, when I received the costume the packaging said size large 12-14, costume was the size of a small tent. Poor quality left black fuzz all over my bathroom, headdress was poor quality/fit as well, velcro on headdress does not stick/ stay together. Not worth the price.
Guest Services Response:This is listed as standard adult which is equivalent to an adult large.
Cheap plastic headpiece
from Brentwood Ca
Dress stated one size, but arrived with Womans L 12-14 on packaging. By the time you wrap it around you it was very bulky. I purchased it for the style of headpiece which is ok from the front, but made from very cheap flimsy plastic and plain black on the back. The snake that goes around your arm is nothing short of a joke. When I returned it in the store, which was very easy, sales person even laughed at it. Definitely not worth the money.

The costume is pretty nice, although the headpiece is not very confortable. I had to modify it because it harmed my forehead. I glued some cushion to the back of it and it worked just fine. Overall, it is a nice costume for its price.

This is your standard, packaged costume. No fills. It'll be used for a Halloween Party and I needed something easy. The headpiece is made of plastic and only comes with a dress and arm band. I am short (5'1), so the dress is a little long. The arm band, which is supposed to be a cuff in the shape of a snake is a very, very cheap addition. It shouldn't even be included in the package because it looks so cheap - that piece went into the garbage immediately.

Created the look I was going for
from Livermore, CA
The head piece is made of plastic- so, get over it already. It's still the best looking Medusa head piece on the market! I used red sparkle nail polish on the snake's eyes! Made them pop! Got lots of compliments!

very disappointed with the medusa outfit
I was disappointed with the snake headdress. I was expecting the snake headddress to be more realistic with bendable snakes. The snake headdress gave me a headache and very uncomfortable
Head accessory very uncomfortable...
The costume was nice but the head accessory was very uncomfortable to wear.
Could have nicer snake jewelry for the price.
Not as good as it looks online!
from Burlington, Ontario
I bought this costume thinking the headpiece was a hard plastic, turns out it is flimsy and it was bent and got in the way and wouldn't stay on, so I improvised and made my own medusa wig and didn't even use it, but it did give me idea's for my own, that was the only good thing about it, the dress was too big for me and I'm a size 7. So again I improvised and wrapped gold fabric around it to tighten it up.
A BIG HIT!

About Me Chic, Classic, Diva
I received tons of compliments on this costume when I went to a party. It's original, cute and fun. The headpiece is truly painful rubbing against your forehead, but I decided to wear a wig. That way, the headpiece rested on the wig and not my forehead. The dress could be of better quality, but it will suffice. The armband was useless and didn't stay on at all. All and all it was a good costume.

the costume looks nothing like the one online! first off its actually black not dark green and its just a bad design i am not happy at all with the product
from So Cal
the head piece presses hard against my forehead (might not on yours), snake armband is a joke (ending up wearing it as a necklace) LoL kinda of confusing to "wrap it up" correctly around the body. The whole idea of the costume is classic. Did I mention I was REALLY disappointed that it WASN'T green like it looks in the pic? That would have made costume 4 stars with me!!! Enjoy

By wicked atheist
from Denver, CO
The headdress was the best part of it, but would have been better if it had a headband with snakes to go around the head. It had a painful spot in the front, so I added two-sided foam tape and a piece of velvet fabric to make it less painful, but even so it left a red dent in my forehead after a while. Also, Velcro to make the two pieces stick together wasn't the best design. The snake bracelet was unraveling on the end, and wouldn't stay on my arm... useless as a bracelet, though it makes a mediocre cat toy. And the "velvet dress" was a lot less glamorous than my normal cheap dresses. I wish I could have spent half as much for just the headdress, and spent the difference on a real dress I could wear many times.So no big thrill, but there was no really great Medusa costume that I could find anywhere. So it was the best I was able to do, and I was somewhat happy with it. I'm rating it 4 stars, but really it's a 3 1/2. I'd recommend it, but not with great enthusiasm.

Like the costume. The only recommendation would be to find a better snake arm band. It won't stay on. Maybe try something with elastic.

Love this costume. The fabric of the dress is great. I was scared to buy a one size fits all but the criss cross straps make it work for size 6 to 18. :) also, the headpiece is great and very pretty on. I can't wait to wear it to my costume party.
