My son who is 9 really wanted this costume. It is an adults costume and yes it was big in the legs for my son but still worked perfect!
Great price. Great costume. Was hilarious. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks
Wore it to a music festival got so many compliments on it. Batteries still haven't worn out . Super funny and fun I'll recommend it
Not only was I completely satisfied with my purchase, the shipping was super fast and product came just as described. I received tons of compliments and laughs thanks to this great costume. Easy to wear and fan worked perfectly all night on one set of batteries. I was asked to take pictures with strangers who loved my costume just as much as me. Thanks again!
Everyone loved this costume. I didn't wear the hat as it was a bit too small and the strap too tight to place on my head. I would recommend finding a suitable replacement hat for this costume.
This costume was very comical! Got lots of laughs and works very well. Only negative I found is that the fan is right on the butt so it made it very hard, almost impossible to sit while it's on. But I stood most of the time so it was fine! Would recommend to a friend for sure! Thank you!
My husband and I are each wearing this to a Halloween party. It fits both of us. I am 5'2" and he is 6'. If adjusts around your waist with a pull string and there is elastic around the ankles which forms the seal for the fan. Not only is this a hilarious costume, it is cool with the fan running so you don't get overheated wearing it. It collapses when you sit and re-inflates when you stand up. If you skip, the head bobs up and down...a riot!
This is a really fun costume. I bought 2. One for a 6'1" guy and one for a 6'5" guy and they fit both of us. It's going to get lots of laughs and is easy to wear. The hat is tiny and looks kind of stupid... if a hat is your thing you may want to make other arrangments.
This is the best costume ever. The fan keeps in inflated and cool at the same time. Batteries last a couple hours.
Amazing, worked perfect and got lots of laughs.
Both my husband and son wore it this halloween and was a hit :)
Good costume lots of fun and lasted all night (3 hours straight) without ever changing batteries. Worth it
My boyfriend wore this to our Halloween party and everyone loved it! Make sure to take extra batteries because after running straight for hours they dont last very long. Overall very funny and good price for this costume.
I wanted to say that the ollie the ostrich costume was hilarious and very fun. The halloween party I went to everybody there enjoyed my costume very much.
Had a lot of fun wearing this costume. The fan actually made it pretty comfortable to wear, with the fresh air and all. The only downside was that the batteries (when the suit was being run non-stop) ran out every two hours or so. So if you plan to wear this for a while pick up a large pack of AA batteries and you'll be set. Would definitely recommend to my friends.......and maybe some enemies.
This costume was a hit with everyone! My 14 year old son wore it on Halloween, and everyone loved the illusion.
The price and the quality of this costume is really nice ! Really worth it, a lot a fun with friends !
This costume is fantastic, I was the hit of the party, lots of compliments, I switched out the hat that comes with it with a cowboy hat and a bandana and it really worked out, its quite cheesy but thats what makes it fun. I will definitely try this again next year. The little fan that comes with worked out great, I put on the costume over my clothes in I was ready to go in less then 5 minutes. Only downfall is that it's hard to sit down or move through a crowded room, but other then that totally fantastic,
This costume was a major hit. I purchased it because the price was pretty cheap, it looked easy to wear and would at least be funny. I was kind of shocked by how crazy people were about it, endless comments about how great, cool and hilarious it was. I only used one set of batteries for about three hours, haven't run them out yet so I don't know how long they'll go. The fan had no problem keeping it inflated except when sitting down because the air intake to the fan would get covered up. Quality seems adequate, I didn't find any flaws but it has the normal cheapish nylon tent feel to it, as expected. It was super easy to wear. Not only is it not a costume that's hot to wear, the fan air flow actually helps to keep it extra cool. The only negative comment would be very minor, the fan noise is noticeable if you're in a quiet area with only normal conversation level and no background noise, add a little background music and put more than ten people in a room and the fan is completely drowned out.
This costume was hilarious. I laughed every time i looked at my husband go riding by on his ostrich.
Ordered costume and the fan didn't work properly. One quick phone call and the company was overnighting me the replacement part at no cost. Very happy w/ their customer service. And of course, the costume was hysterical.
This costume is sure to get looks, I wore it to a halloween party and got pretty much all attention, fun stuff! My only complaint really is that it's not that comfortabe to walk around in for long periods of time (4-5 hours), but I expected it to be a lot less comfortable than it really was so it's not a big deal. Also, If your an adult the fake legs do look a bit silly, but I think it kind of adds to the charm of it. If you like being the goofy fun person at Halloween, then look no further than this costume! Worth every penny without a single doubt!
Works well. Batteries last about 4 hours. I wore suspenders to hold up the costume as it tends to slip while walking.
great costume lots of intrest from everyone fun to wear. Required 12AA batteries to run at a high enough pressure for full inflation all night 8-9 hours.
awesome costume!!!!!! received a lot of laughs.
My Husband and I got matching costumes! I wore this one and he wore the cowboy riding the inflatable bull. We got so many compliments all night! These have been our best costumes yet, will be hard to top next year!
Funny costume. Hat is stupid...but all else is pretty funny. Plan on being hit at the party.
i bought this costume for my son and he loves it . i posted his picture on facebook and had lots of great comments on how terrific this costume looks .im sure we will use this costume for a few halloweens .the shippping was fast and inexpensive .thanks buycostumes for great quality and great costumes !
This is the most awesome costume ever. It is very easy to wear and my son absolutly LOVED it. Cant wait for Halloween!!
This was a great costume,had a house party was the life of the party. I was satisfied with the quilty of the product it was just right for the price.You guys do a great job on getting the orders shipped out quickley.The people on the phone are always wellling to help you and explain discounts to you.Thanks again.
I got this costume for my 15 year old son He is about 5'8 the costume fits him well but it looks like there is room to grow. It inflates quickly and the fan is quiet. The hat is too small but I got him another at a party store. It is such a funny costume and well worth the price.
This costume is very funny. Just a heads up in the past we bought battery opperated costume and the batteries ran out quickly. Bring an extra set for long parties.
I bought this costume for my son and he is thrilled with it. He can't wait to wear it on Halloween! It is made well and is sized to fit most anyone. It has a built in fan that runs on batteries that can be tucked from view. Comfortable and easy to move in.
Bought this for my son. The fit was ok, the pump worked and it's really funny. The air pump is bright orange right in the middle of the Ostrich's black tail feathers. I think it should have been black too so that it isn't so obvious. The hat that comes with it looks really cheap and bad..try something else. Other than that I don't have any real complaints.
So excited! Halloween will be a BLAST!!!!
I purchased this costume for my boyfriend. When I received it and tried it on it would barley inflate. The neck wouldn't stand up at all, the legs hung lifeless, and the majority of the body was only somewhat inflated, I was completely disappointed and was going to send it back. I mentioned it to my father however and he took a look at it. He ended up having to take it apart and whomever made it had soldered the fan backwards and it was blowing away from the spout into the costume. Luckily he was able to fix it, and it works great now. I definitely wouldn't recommend this costume to anyone who doesn't have Macgyver as a father.
This costume is the hit of a party! Easy to put on and quick to inflate. Looking for something inexpensive and loads of fun, this is the costume for you!
I purchased the costume for my daughter. She wore it in her school halloween parade and everyone liked it. It's a great costume and you can use it over and over again!
this item is perfect for the event I'll be holding later in the year, have tried it on and fits really well, and has created lots of laughs already.
We host an annual Halloween party and after 6 years were having trouble finding just the right costume. After the 2008 party we traveled to Australia and New Zealand, so this one seemed perfect. It didn't win the prize (another of your costumes did win), but everybody loved it. Tha fan worked well and we didn't have the droopy neck that a few others experienced. All in all, another great costume at a very reasonable price.
Hilarious costume! I bought this for my boyfriend. He never did end up wearing it to the bar, as he thought it would be too bulky. But did wear it to a halloween party. It was a total hit!
Got this for a volunteer candy handout at the Atlanta Zoo. The parents cracked up and complimented the unique outfit. The kids? Priceless curiosity. Their reactions were worth every penny I spent on this. The quality seems fairly cheap, but it held up even with a dozen or so kids grabbing the head or punching the head. I guess I can't complain. The inflation fan takes 4 AA batteries and a new set of regular Duracell's lasted about 4.5 hours.
great fun, losts of ways to accesorise
Don't get me wrong, this costume is amazing. The one thing that is really flawed is that the neck of the ostrich never quite gets filled up all the way. I bought one for me and one for my girlfriend and they both do the same thing. It's not that big of an issue, this costume still gets tons of laughs.
We have a halloween party at work every year and I always find the most unque costume. (usually I make most of it myself) And I almost always win. But I seen this costume and I knew this was The winning costume for sure!
The Ollie Ostrich costum is great. Sometimes it's a little tight on the legs and a bit awkward to walk in at first. Try this costume on as soon as you get this costume so , you will have a better feel for the costume. ( try it on a day or more, before you go out to the party/event) The Costume is hard to sit down in but you can deflate it, if you have to sit down. (takes just seconds to inflate)
This is the best costume ever! It is so funny and creative. This costume is very easy to use and comfortable.Once my daughter's friend saw this on her she ordered the horse jockey costume to match. I am a very satisfied customer.
