Robin Hood from BuyCostumes.com {Review}

My friends and I have all been chatting in anticipation about the Halloween Party that our church is throwing on Friday.  Mothers just love the opportunity to put our babies in something cute and fluffy!  Our husbands are another story.  Most of us can’t get our husbands to dress up at all, but lucky for me, “Charlie” can be persuaded.  That, or he’s realized how much passion I have for this holiday, and is being a good husband about it :).  Still, he has standards.  Nothing too silly, too cute, or too ridiculous.  I’ve tried to find him masculine costumes over the years: Prom King, a football player, a robber, the scarecrow…its not like I’m putting him in an angry birds outfit or the wolf in grandma’s nightgown.  Though that just got me thinking…

Anyways!  I think I just found the most awesome (and extremely masculine) costume for the hubby: ROBIN HOOD!

800184

This Robin Hood Adult Costume consists of the lace-up shirt and the attached vest, arm gauntlets, the belt with attached pouch, and the boot covers.  Note that this does not include the pants, shoes, or bow & arrow, but those should be easy to come by.  Don’t you love when the real thing looks like it does in the picture?

 IMG_7962Except for the blue pants.  Which will be black next time.  But what a great costume, huh!  The costume is quite adjustable.  The green shirt (with the attached vest) is very stretchy and thicker than I thought it would be.  The clasps in front can be set at different holes for a customized feel and look.

We both love the arm gauntlets.  They’re so cool!  We weren’t as impressed with the ‘leather’ details.  The faux-leather is very thin and obviously not real, but from a distance, no one would notice.  We found the front diagonal strap to be a little weird since there is only half of it.  You can see how it ends at Charlie’s shoulder and stays up with velcro.  I really wish it was twice as long so it could be extended down behind his back, especially if you wanted to add some arrows like in the first picture.  The boot covers are pretty cool.  They tend to slide down and look a little sloppy after walking, but this might not be a problem on thicker calves.

The price of $43.99 seems just a little steep, but this is coming from a seamstress who makes her own everything to save a dime.  For a non-sewer, this is probably quite reasonable.  With several more upcoming costume ideas in mind, I figured we could use this later on for Peter Pan or even a medieval man.  You know, switch out some accessories, take away the boots…

Pretty studly, huh?  We’re so stickin excited for Halloween!

Buy Costumes has a huuuuuuge array of Fairytale, TV, and Movie Character costumes.  Sounds safe, right?  These are great for picky-dressers and anti-Halloweeners.

    Very cute, I like the idea of having the costume that you can switch up and reuse as another character. I like the oz collection that is shown above and that you can get accessories to go with costume on the website. Thank you for sharing
