2.0 out of 5 stars Tacky and tiny, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HIPPY MAN 60s 70s woodstock FLOWER POWER fancy dress OS (Toy)
Ok so my rating is based on the costume itself and not on the price. This item is quite cheap at just over a tenner but there's a reason for it, it's tat. I ordered this based on the Amazon reviews I had read for the November festival in Benidorm. Bear in mind that I am 6ft 5 and quite chunky (not fat mind, just well built)

Upon opening the packet it became clear that the material itself was really, really thin, so thin that you can actually see through it. No problem I thought, for 12quid I wasn't expecting real quality. So then I tried the outfit on and that's where my gripe really came into effect. The bottoms were not too bad and the waist is elasticated enough to fit most people large or small, the leg length is no where near a 32-34 inch, closer to a 30. Which meant that I was wearing half masts with 4 to 5 inches of my ankles on show.

The top is atrocious, seriously, this would fit Verne Troyer quite snugly. I could barely get my arms through the holes and when it was finally on, I was walking around like I had rolled up carpets under my arms, after an hour or so it because quite painful to wear, due to the elastic cutting into my underarm area. The jacket came down to my midriff area and so looked nothing like it does on the chap in the product photo.

I also bought a wig, peace badge, headband and hippy glasses to complete the look but I honestly got more laughs at how painful the costume looked on me than at the look of the costume itself.

Conclusion: If you are a fairly small person, in the lower end of the 5ft spectrum and quite slim, then you may get some value from this cheap looking costume. However, if you're a big chap like myself, then don't be fooled by the sizes given on here, the costume is a heck of a lot smaller than it's made out to be.

You get what you pay for I suppose.
