    Promising review: "I wore this to hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters and I wasn't sure if they'd care for it, but it was a total hit. Seeing their eyes light up was awesome. I love Halloween so it was cool to wear a costume and be in the middle of the festivities. The parents loved it too, and I took lots of photos with people. It made people laugh running down the street from their cars. This costume is so much fun. I am going to re-wear it every year. I'm sure I could find other uses for it as well." —Noel

    Amazon

    What you get: This costume includes a pickle pullover — the sunglasses aren't included.

    Promising review: "This costume has a really nice fit and is made with comfortable fabric. The hat fits well, too. It's much better than expected for a store-bought Halloween costume! It's a nice touch that the name tag is actually a tag and not sewn on. I think this is the best Robin costume you can buy on the market." —Erin

The shorts were a tad longer than I preferred so I just pinned them shorter. I love that it came with the fishnet tights! I only had to buy shoes and a necklace and I was set! Overall, I would recommend!" —Laura

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! If you are looking for a Halloween cape that is lightweight and fun without breaking the bank then buy this one! This is so much fun, it's as light as scarf material, and is very cute and not tacky. It has elastic finger holders, but you could add wrist holders yourself. The nice part is if you need to just take this off it folds up nicely and tucks in your bag. I can dance in this as well and still have fun." —LegoMom

    Promising review: "With costumes and accessories, you never know what to expect. I had been shopping for crowns expecting this one to be the wrong size and preparing myself for something too small, but I was SO wrong. This product was perfect. The crown fits an adult head perfectly (it has three positions to lock so it will adjust) and the costume feels great. It feels sturdy and thick enough to resist a Halloween party. I am very pleased and this was a great value purchase. Thank you!" —Jean-Francois Roy

    Promising review: "This is even better in person. It's the perfect, simple costume. I wore it to work because it’s simple yet nice. I wore black underneath so the design would stand out and I got so many compliments. It’s perfect and I’m so glad I bought it." —Nazcarmom

    18. A taco onesie because it gives new meaning to looking like a snack this Halloween.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don’t like this costume! I love it! Anybody who knows me knows I love tacos. This was so perfect for me! It's easy to walk around and move in and it's not super thick or hot. I wore it for over eight hours! I’m a preschool teacher and the kids just loved it!!" —Tierra Marie Collier

    Promising review: "Great costume for a good price — it was a hit. I used some black spray paint in various areas of the costume to make it more realistic, like Beetlejuice. I also used some green spray paint around the neck area with the black. The costume is very clean and new so I roughed it up a bit with the spray paint. It turned out to be awesome and more realistic looking." —Targin S.
