The Horseman rides again !

Comments about Spirit Halloween Kids Headless Horseman Costume:
Purchased a boys medium for my 8 year old girl. Fit very well. Worked great with a lighted hurricane lantern and a lighted mean looking jack-o-lantern pumpkin, black pants and black boots. She was the talk of the neighborhood and one a best costume prize at a Halloween party! The costume we purchased had a more realistic looking flesh that is more pink and the cuffs did not have the extra frill. I like our version better than what is pictured. You will not be dissapointed. Very awesome costume. Highly recommend using with other props such as ax, lantern, and/or lighted pumpkin!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not what you expect.
Not what you would expect. You do not see through the shirt, the bloody stump is an actual mask. It does not fit the head of a toddler. It is way too difficult for a little boy this size to manage to put on.

Worst costume ever!

Head piece is terrible! The inflatable part brake apart after the first hour. My son ended up just wearing the black cape most of the night.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wrong head size.
We ordered this. the outfit fit perfectly, but the mask was like it was for a 4 year old. We had to get an adult medium for a youth large outfit. Overall, after the replacement, it was fine.
Awesome Costume :)

It was a great costume but it took a while for my 10 year old son to wear. He was confused how to wear it.
from Pgh, PA
My 11 yr-old son wore it to my sister's Halloween party and won the award for Best Costume!!! Could use some Velcro to keep costume from slipping down and revealing eye holes in the "neck" (mask.) Definitely size up!

Great Product, Great Price, Great Costume!

Great costume for my 12 year old son, he loved his costume to go trick or treating in!
By 24/7 Mom
My 10 year old son chose this as his costume this year. He had a great time with it. The only thing is the part that fits on your head was very very small. Hehas an average size head and it just didn't fit properly. He made it work though.
Headpiece a nightmare

About Me Trendy
Eye holes in plastic stump that goes on head don't even come close to matching up with eyes. My son was so upset he barely went to any houses trick or treating. He kept pulling up the cape because it would slide down constantly showing two eye holes that were on his forehead. His neck was sore from having to scrunch it up to keep the costume on. He is a small 11 year old and we got the kids x-large which was supposed to fit a 14 year old. The costume was very cool looking and he got so many compliments in it which made him very happy but the unfunctionality of it over rode that. I bought in store so didn't read reviews online. Hard to believe there is a post from 2011 complaining about the mask not fitting and it still isn't fixed in 2014.

My son loves it! good fit. a bit scary for an 8 year old. But that's what he wanted!

my son looked very cool when wearing the costume, but the shoulder pads were inflatable and the strap broke the 1st time we tried to put in on.. we were still able to make it work. it looked very realistic, but for trick or treating , he didn't keep the should pads on.
Not Good... Not Good at All
By Eric the Runner
10 year old son saw this in the Spirit of Halloween store, and thought it was awesome. We thought it looked pretty cool, too, especially now that the show Sleepy Hollow is on, prominently featuring the Headless Horseman.We didn't think it was awesome, cool, or anything else once he put it on to go to a Halloween party a couple days before Halloween. The inflatable shoulder blocks are awkward, and do not remain firmly in place. The Horseman's neck (which is the mask to cover the wearer's face) is too short top-to-bottom, and does not remain in place. It keeps riding up, and the cape keeps falling down.Needless to say, neither our son nor us were in the slightest bit impressed with the costume. Of course, we missed the return period, so he was stuck with it for Halloween, even though he literally despised the costume by that time. He ended up just wearing the cape and some other mask we had. It looked 100x better without the useless head mask.
Wish I was more excited

I wish I could say that I loved this costume, however the photo looked a lot better than the actual costume.
Didn't arrive in time
from Swift current, SK
My son didn't get to wear it as it didn't arrive in time. I even ordered 11 days in advance. I had to go purchase him another costume the day of Halloween. The costume itself is great but the service to get it here was pathetic.
Head piece is a problem
from Northern California
About Me Adventurous, Trendy
Bought this costume for my son for Halloween. The innovation of the costume is great. There is a head piece made out of a rubber like substance. The head piece has eye holes in it and the cape has a shear material that covers the eye area. It is see through but gives the appearance of being headless. The rubber like head piiece does not extend down far enough so the cape that is supposed to cover the eyes kept falling down ruining the whole idea of headless. In addition there are blow up cushions to raise the wearers shoulders up that are held on by elastic straps. Immediately the tabs that the elastic tie to ripped off the blow up, easily repaired with packing tape. I would recommend the costume but with full disclosure of issues.

Not able to return
from Nescopeck, PA
This costume was ordered in the store online since it was not available. I was concerned because I like my son to try costumes on and make sure he likes them before purchasing. I was told that there was no problems returning to the store if we were not satisfied. The costume was deliveres Oct 19th and my son hated it. The part that was to cover his head was see through, which made the Headless horseman look like he had a face. On Monday Oct 21st, we went to the store to return the costume and to pick out a new one and we were told, rather rudely, that it was past the deadline to return items. I explained the item was delivered after that date but they still insisted there were no returns. Now my son is stuck with a costume that was poorly made and not happy with. We will never purchase from Spirit Halloween again if this is the way their service is going to be and we will be sure to tell all our friends about our experience!

My son didn't like it because his face is not hidden enough.Straps for the blow up shoulders were broke before we put them on.Poor quality all around.
Instructions not included
By Confused Mom
This is a great looking costume and a classic! The cut of the costume makes it difficult for the user to put on without assistance. The detail on the costume is what both makes and breaks it.Once on, it looks good and the mask itself can be adjusted.
may need adjusting
from Clinton Twp, MI
Agree with others to size up. The shoulder blow-ups are difficult to keep in place and caused the costume to slip down requiring frequent adjustments. We adapted by using an airplane neck pillow and it was much more comfortable. The cape did require adjusting as it kept slipping down my son's face, but a safety pin to the mask fixed that right up. He loved the costume and thankfully we had an event to test these things out prior to trick-or-treating.
My son loves this

Very unique costume for trick or treating. The plastic headpiece needs to be a bit longer to completely cover the head. Still a great product.

The costume was awesome
from Odessa , Tx
My 5 year old loved it and I read the other comments about the size. Thank you for that because I bought it a size bigger and it fit him perfect.
My son loves it!
from Chesapeake, VA
My son can't wait to go trick or treating in this costume. It is unique and fits him well. Did have to make an adjustment to the blow up shoulder pads. Tied them closer together so they were not falling off his shoulders. Easy fix. Great value for the price.

About Me Adventurous, Classic, Trendy
I bought this for my 7-yr old son for Halloween in the smallest size they make...which is probably a size too big (he is 50" tall and 55 lbs). But even still, the costume looks great overall. The rubber that is the 'neck' is a strange color and looks fake, but it may be fine in the dark. The inflatable pieces that will hold the costume up higher are pretty far apart. Fortunately I will be able to untie the elastic that holds them together and move them closer to each other. The one thing I wish is that the costume would come with pants. It's not like it's expensive fabric. You pay enough; you'd think you could get the full outfit.

My son wore this costume 2 years ago when he was 6. He loves all the creepy things about Halloween so it was a homerun for him. Other kids thought it was cool, too. If his school allowed costumes he could have worn it becasue it does not restrict arm movement, etc. The part of the costume that is the 'neck' (where the head is severed) is a rubber cap that fits over the wearer's head. It has eye holes in the front so you can see out of it and the neck part of the shirt covers the eyes so you're looking through black mesh. However, those holes didn't line up well for my son so I just cut up and around the eye part so we didn't have to worry about it. Since there wearer is looking through black mesh you do want to make sure they can see well enough.

My son wore this 2 times when it tore a hole in it. The blow up shoulder pads do not fit good and are cheap. The mask does not fit over the eyes properly. It sucks we spent money on it and will not be able to use it again. It would be a great costume if they came up with a better design!

from Dallas, TX
My son totally loved this costume. He was the talk of the neighborhood. He wore it to his school's Halloween Party and also on Halloween night serving candy to the trick or treaters. My son is 11 and the younger kids (and parents too) loved his costume. They were all "WOWED" by it. It was a lot of fun!!!
