Frank the Bunny will scare your kids!
from Fort Collins, Co
About Me Adventurous, Creative, Trendy
If you are looking for an exact Frank the Bunny costume, this isn't it. If you are looking for something close… with some modifications, no one will really know the difference and this will work. First of all the fur isn't grey, not even close… it's black with some white hairs mixed in. It sheds… A LOT. It's hot.. really hot. You will need to wear short pants and a t-shirt… or even a tank top under this. There aren't really any breathing holes in the costume at all. I had to cut a slit in the crotch to be able to use the bathroom. There are three small velcro enclosures on the back, pretty hard to close on your own, but I managed to do it. I'm 6ft, 185 lbs, and this fit me pretty comfortably. The legs are slightly long, but not a big deal. I also cut slits at the inside wrist (good idea from another reviewer I read, also the slit in the crotch), so you can easily slip off the "gloves" but they are still attached by the fur at the top of the wrist. If not, you will seriously burn up. The fingers aren't even close to being long enough to fit. Not sure if this was intentional or not to make them look more like paws, but oh well. There aren't any claws on the fingers (like Frank in the movie, but that's ok). As for the mask… there is a LOT of extra material around the neck. I ended up cutting off maybe a 3-4 inch strip so it doesn't look so bulky. The mask itself is formed pretty well, it's your typical rubber floppy mask, but there are elastic bands inside that fit around your head to keep it close to your face. The ears stay up pretty well if you keep the mask pulled down tight at the top of your head. Yea, they may fall down, put if you raise your head back they snap back up. The eyes are terrible on this mask. I cut them out, and took the advice of another reviewer and hot glued in old sunglass lenses (use one that you can still see out of in the dark!) and it looks and functions so much better. I tried black mesh at first, but it ended up being way to close to my eyes. So if you can find some more curved lenses the better. I also painted the mask with a silver metallic spray paint to give it more of a metallic shine more similar to the movie. Worked out great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Close but no cigar
By DAN HOLLYWOOD
from KEYPORT, NEW JERSEY
Definitely a nice attempt to pay tribute to Frank the Bunny from Donnie Darko. My biggest issue was the website and the picture on the package itself show the costume to look perfect and grey in color. When I got it in the mail and opened it only to be disappointed by a "BLACK" costume with little white hairs here and there, completely oppsite looking of what they are promoting :( For the average costume wearer who isn't looking for a screen accurate costume then this will be a lot of fun to stand out in Halloween parties, you will definitely get noticed! For fans of the movie who want a more realistic costume youll have to search for a fan made costume because the black suit makes him look like "Frank the SKUNK" instead of a evil bunny. The mask itself is great looking but you will have to cut the eye holes wider if you want to actually see out of the mask, I recommend gluing black or grey mesh material over the eye holes once you cut them enough so you can see, otherwise your just looking through 2 tiny slits. The costume does shed a lot so be prepared to vacuum where ever you go. I personally would not recommend this costume to my screen accurate film fans, but I do recommend this costume for anyone who wants to stand out this Halloween and have fun. The website just needs to make a note the suit is not even close to being Grey. with that said I'd give it an 8 out of 10. HAPPY Halloween EVERYONE.
Don't trust the description or photo

About Me A Man
The product description describes the mask as having white mesh see through eyes. In reality the eyes are 90% covered in white painted latex with a tiny slit for viewing. The ears are also almost fully straight up and down and sealed off so you can't modify them without cutting holes in the mask. The latex face looks goofy compared to true "theatrical quality" costumes I've seen online. Body suit itself is fine, it's real warm too so don't wear too much under if you want to be comfortable.

Do not buy this
from San Antonio, TX
I was so excited to get this and was completely let down. First of all it isnt gray its a black costume and it looks dirty and preworn. It also was coming apart when i opened the box. the mask is impossible to see out of. This was one of the biggest letdowns ive ever had from ordering online. I mailed it back an hour after it got to my house. I know it looks cool in the picture online but trust me you will be disappointed. it looks nothing like the picture online trust me.

Garbage! Not worth it at all!
from Walnut Creek, CA
I have nothing good to say about this costume. The quality is total garbage! It arrived ripped in the fingers! The ears refuse to stay up! The mask is far too big for the average head/face. The mask needs a major overhaul! Please do NOT purchase this. I'm a huge Frank fan but this costume for the price is a royal flop!

Way too expensive for the quality
from Dallas, TX
Went to a costume party and then a couple bars after. I got a bunch of compliments on the costume from those who recognized it. But as for cons... It was crazy hot - although to be expected considering that it's a one piece suit. The mask itself disappointed me. Being a cheap latex and the ears being top heavy flop over if not seated just right. I just felt like for paying [$] I would have gotten a "movie quality" costume like I paid for. I also had a problem with the quality of the suit. The fur shed EVERYWHERE! And on this stitching on both hands had separated causing holes. Even worse than that - the left hand ring and pinky fingers were stitched too close together and my fingers barely fit - it wasn't comfortable anyway. The movie was cool so I thought the costume would be too. Just poor quality.

The Velcro on the back could be better positioned. I altered this part. I also stuffed the ears so the would stay up.

Not bad - not good
from Denver, CO
"Donnie Darko Costume'-NO, as some other costume-YES. The mask itself is HORRIBLE to wear! I cut the mask out, and just made a dog (Wilfred) costume out of it, and got a lot of great responses! You will also have to rip a seam in the crotch for a place to 'use the bathroom'.

Really great costume. Only issues are that it sheds a whole bunch, and it's really warm inside.

I had a terrible time just ordering this suite. I love frank the bunny but it was so not worth it. In fact I returned the outfit. I ordered it over night, because I was planning a costume party. Well, not only did it never show up but I had to leave work, travel a good 30 miles to pick it up, and did all this after it was two days passed the original delivery date. I didn't even get refunded the cost of shipping either. The costume itself is hard to put on, you can barely see out of it and its hard to breathe. It got so hot in there I took it off within 5 minutes.

i had bought this costume thinking it was movie quality, i was thinking the mask was hard layered. nope. cheap plastic, the ears are held up by what feels like paper tubing. very cheap. the back is held together with cheap Velcro. not a zipper. a few alterations need to be made before this is to be worn for comfort. the ears are top heavy, so maybe add a wire or more base support. it would be nice if the gloves were not attached. Add claws to the gloves. make the fur so it does not come off in chunks. the mouth piece is too large, thus showing off your face and ruining the effect. same with the eyes. i also received the costume with a few holes in it.but it is fun to wear and i would recommend this to a friend

WORTH EVERY PENNY
from Groton, CT
About Me Comfort-Oriented
I love this costume! Its kinda hot to wear and it sheds, so I would recommend it for outdoor trick or treating. The ears are fine and didn't give me a problem standing up. If there was a problem, they fixed it. The mask is very comfortable and easy to see and breathe in. I'm 5'9" tall and I weigh 160 pounds, and the costume fit me perfectly. Easily the best costume I have ever purchased.

My boyfriend and I live in Lynn, MA which is a skip away from the biggest halloween town in the world, Salem, MA. I got him this costume and was the biggest hit of the night. people were asking him for pictures all night. HUGE HIT!! Especially for the people who knew who Frank the Bunny was. OH strap inside the mask is a chin strap... Must use for a little more comfort.

great costume, but the ears need some work
Exactly what I was looking for
from Chicago, IL
About Me Comfort-Oriented, Conservative
I was stuck for an idea for Halloween, then saw this. I am a huge fan of Donnie Darko, so I was excited. It is a little big on me (I am 5'5"), but nothing a little pinning up of the legs can't fix. Had to work with the mask a little because the ears have a hard time staying up (they are a little top heavy) and it takes some moving around to get the eyes and mouth to sit correctly on my face. The costume also sheds some and is a little pricy. But, overall I am happy with how it looks and fits and I plan on re-wearing it.

Frank the bunny
By Frank fan
from Atlanta, GA
About Me Adventurous, Bargain Shopper, Classic
This costume is GREAT!! [...] and it was exactly as I anticipated. Only cons:-fur sheds-mask did not fit snug at first, but I overlapped the back of the mask and put a few stitches in it and then it fit perfect.-Ears did not stand up - I added some extra stuffing to the base of the ears by going through the inside of the mask and making a small hole, and patched using a raft repair kit. Ears are perfect now.Other than those small alterations... this costume will be the life of the party!! WARNING - YOU WILL SCARE THE BEJESUS OUT OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHEN WEARING (and yourself when looking into mirror).
