Great quality & price. My 2 grandsons, my son & I were Salvation Army Bell Ringers dressed as Star Wars characters. I was Jabba the Hutt. We raised over $500!! Had lots of people ask where I got the costume & I told them: at BUYCOSTUMES.com. Will be back to purchase more!!
Costume get Christmas
When I first received the costume I was pretty excited and anxious to try it out. I wore it for 15 minutes and I thought it was the best investment I made in a long time! On the night of the party, everyone was impressed by my costume and though it was funny! I couldn't move much, but still I was pretty confortable in the costume. And then, the fan broke... I was all of the sudden Jabba the not so Hutt... My costume is now worthless.
Looks realistic! I was very happy with this purchase!
This costume was awesome. So many good comments about it on the night. The inbuilt fan was awesome and kept me cool in 42 degree heat. Will get many wears out of this costume.
I am very happy with the inflatable Jabba the Hutt costume. I'm 6'1, 165lbs and it fit perfectly though the costume would also be very "forgiving" for larger/smaller sizes. I wore it while handing out treats and it was a hit with the kids. The youngest would stop and stare! This time also allowed me to work out a few kinks: A piece of wire coat hangar helped to maintain the shape of the headpiece. I also had to re-solder the fan motor wires which had come loose after some jostling. Battery life= 2hrs +/- so carry extras. Later at the club, I was also very popular and people were constantly yelling Jabba! Highly recommended!
I've bought a couple of accessories from here, but never a costume. I had no idea what I wanted to be for halloween. I was stumped. After looking on here for weeks I saw the Jabba costume. What sold me on it was the hilarity of it. Imagine seeing someone dancing in this thing. Or at the end of the bar ordering a drink in it. So I bought and I knew it would be big but I didn't imagine how big. Im 6ft. 3in. 230 pounds. And the thing was huge on me. Except the arm length was kinda short for my arms. It was a huge success at the costume party at the club I was at with my girlfriend. I was literally a celebrity that night. I took so many pics with different people. People would just walk up to me and start rubbing the belly or straddle the tail or just come up and hug me. There were people there with some pretty detailed costumes but everybody kept asking me where I got mine. The only feeling I can compare it to was when a kid sees Santa and their face lights up cause they only seem him on tv prior. When people saw me in the jabba costume their inner child showed up. When I was taking pictures people were telling me how they love jabba the hutt and Star Wars ever since they were a kid. They were giving me props like I was the guy who played him in the movie. The owner of re club even asked me to participate in the costume contest. I placed 2nd behind someone who dressed up as a line of cocaine, go figure. If u r a Star Wars fan. Forget being a Jedi, Vader, or a stormtropper. You see those costumes every year. I highly recommend going with this costume. Im already looking forward to wearing it next year. Its very durable, lightweight, can get hot in there, and it will make u waddle instead of walk. But I didn't mind any of that. I was Jabba the freakin Hutt and I loved it. My girlfriend was getting jealous of all the people especially woman who wanted a picture with me and she's not the jealous type. But I told her it has nothing to do with me, they can't see my face. People just love Star Wars and they love Jabba.
This costume is great...the added benefit of the air makes it fun!
This costume was great except for the fan in it was broken. since we got the costume right before Halloween there wasn't time to return it. My boyfriend had to spend $30 on an additional Halloween costume to get the fan out of it. Of course he wore it, the zipper broke and had to be duct-taped. Its not returnable now. It looked great though.
Standard size more than enough room for my husband who is over 6 ft. tall. In the past, he couldn't wear standard sizes - they have always been too small. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The quality is ok and even survived being attacked by my terrier (once it was blown up fully, it scared her) - her attack did not puncture it. Compared to prices of other costumes, this is a reasonable cost. Be warned though: moving can be a challenge. You waddle more than walking. Consider how much you have to walk and watch your liquid intake - bathroom break will require the whole thing to come off. Overall - I love it!!!
JABBA the HUTT...is/was a huge success at several different parties. My sister wore it to work ...I wore it last week to a nightclub and will at 3 more nightclub events this weekend. The costume is LIGHTWEIGHT and NO SWEATING involved!
I bought this costume for my husband, because I thought it was hysterical. The costume exceeds my expectations, because everything fit (he is 6'9"...the arms are a little short, but the body is long enough) and worked well. I can't wait to go to the Halloween party!
My fiancÃ© is a huge nerd, and he LOVES Jabba! When we first saw this costume on the Star Wars website, it was a bit pricey, almost double what it costs here. When we found it here for cheaper, well...we had to get it! Shipping was SUPER fast, and it looked hilarious even before we blew it up. However we did find one problem, you MUST use SUPER HIGH QUALITY AA batteries, the cheap ones don't even turn the fan on! But once we got the better batteries, well...let's just say he doesn't want to take it off! :)
Awsome and hilarious! I was so surprised at how easy it was for my boyfriend to move around in. I thought it would be hard for him to sit down or drink beer but it wasn't at all. He was very happy and everyone loved it:)
This costume is made well and is quite durable. It will also get you lots of comments - especially laughs (although a couple of people not familiar with Star Wars thought that I was a potato). My only warning about this costume is that the leg holes are pretty close together, which forces you to waddle more than walk (making it more realistic). I walked over a mile in this along paved sidewalks and roads and saw no evidence of wear on the bottom of the tail or along the seams. The fan kept the costume inflated with no problems.
Bought this costume, expecting it to be big. But really it's BIG! Actually it's huge! Nobody will miss you when you're wearing this, it inflates to a huge size, but is surprisingly comfortable and cool to wear. If you're buying this get yourself a Slave Girl to go with it to complete the look!
I can't believe how great this costume is! It was the talk of the party and it stayed inflated the entire time. I would recommend this costume to any Star Wars fan looking to impress! BUY IT!
This is a fun couple's costume! It definately gets a lot of attention even without the "Leia" by your side! It has a huge tail that drags. I was worried because if it tore it'd undoubtedly deflate but the fabric was suprisingly durable and made it through gravel, cement, asphalt, dirt,etc.without a scuff! Was even by 2 bonfires and it didn''t harm it at all! Very impressed! The inflation is fast so it isn't a hassle as far as getting in and out of vehicles and what not. The only thing I'd change is that your bare hands show. I'm sure you could buy some gloves to compliment it but I was crunched for time. It is so much fun though and I'd recommend it.
The costume fits great and inflates quickly. You will have limited movement as the bottom is attached around your ankles. There is no way to sit down once it is inflated so you might want to experiment with how full you want to make it. I got this costume for an event that we have at the martial arts studio I teach at. Its one where the kids get to hunt and beat up the monsters. Everyone loved it. I had kids trying to beat it to death and the costume held up to the pounding like a champ. It never felt too hot either.
This costume turned many heads and made lots of people laugh! My 9 year old son and my husband both fit the costume. Great fit for any size due to the adjustable leg closures.
this costume was fun, but its very large and you can't move around in it very well. If you are going to stay in one place for most of the time, this is for you!
This Jabba costume is awesome and hilarious. It is huge when the small fan inflates The Hutt. The tail is long. Many great comments at the parties I attended. My wife went as Princess Leia. You will not be disappointed with Jabba The Hutt!
My husband wore this costume for Halloween 2009 in Vegas. We had a blast and he got so much attention! The fan lasted about 4-5 hours on one set of batteries (thank goodness we brought extra!). It was a little difficult to walk in so we had to take it slow. Otherwise, no complaints!
This costume rocked!! My husband was quite the hit! It blows up really fast! you are puffy and fabulous in moments! It was light weight, so despite what people thought, he wasn't sweating up a storm in there! It was super fun. the only thing is it is hard to walk around in it and if you are at bar, getting your tail stepped on is not a treat! we ended up bustling the tail! Great costume! SO MUCH FUN!
This lives up to the description. Right out of the box you know the little ones will love it. It took no time at all to put on. A set of greenish or brown hands would be a perfect add on. Once the fan gets going it keeps up fine and will help keep cool
Okay, maybe I haven't had this costume long enough to truly review it, especially as far as quality & durability goes, but out of the bag I'm blown away. This is the funnest, funniest costume ever. When it arrived (very fast shipping, totally reasonable shipping costs - and I'm in Canada!) I put it on right away. Took 5 minutes tops - quick! My first impression was that the tiny air pump couldn't possibly inflate this huge thing, but within' minutes I was puffed right up, pressure seemed strong. Its a neat concept - I don't see how I could get too warm in it. The picture does not do it justice. Its huge! That could be a downside: It is certainly awkward. But its a Jabba the Hut costume and being Jabba should be awkward. This costume is going to be a show stealer at any costume party. Everybody is going to want one of these! I never thought anyone could conceive a good Jabba costume. I'm so excited - this is a boyhood dream come true.
