BuyCostumes: Black Skin Suit Costume Review


 Thanks to buycostumes.com for providing me with a free skin suit for review.

 
So, every Halloween,  I always still dress up. I can't resist it. Halloween is the one time where you can be anything you want. You can go out, and nobody can judge you, because most of the time people don't even know who you are.

Being a person who is deeply bothered by others people thoughts of myself, it's so nice to have 1 day where I just don't have to care.

Almost every year when I pick a costume, I seem to always pick something cute. For instance, last year I was a sock monkey, lol.

This year I wanted to do something different. I wasn't sure what - So I just set off on the BuyCostumes website, and started browsing all of the categories. There selection is huge, so it took a while; But as soon as I saw it, I knew.

 The Black Skin Suit Costume:

This costume was perfect. I've seen stuff like it, but only in movies, or some type of show with comedy in it. I mean honestly, if I saw someone walking around in this costume, I would laugh so hard, and I would be like, "What is that!?"

What I love about it, is that you look like some type of shadow, or shadow figure. It's so different, and it just looks silly.

My favorite part of the costume is that there are no eye holes. The costume zips straight up from your lower back, all the way to to tip top of your head. If you were actually wearing this out in the dark I could see it as dangerous (if you're alone), because you're looking through fabric, but when your in a lighted area, you can see pretty well (Better than I thought you would be able to.)

This costume is also fun for just running around. I'm a pretty happy person at home, and I like doing weird things, like putting on a skin costume, and walking around in it all day, lol.

I've showed like half of my family on Skype, and everyone just loves it!


The only 1 down fall I would say this costume has is that on the website it says 1 size fits all, and you know, there are times when you can expect things not to fit, but I figured the material was that of like, pantyhose, so I thought it would easily conform to different heights. However, with Aaron who is 6'5 - It did not fit him at all. When he tried to put it on some of the threads stretched, and now when I wear it, it's kind-of wrinkly in some areas, like the neck.

The final thing I loved though, was definitely the face. When the protruding parts of your face (like your nose and lips) are in there, it just makes it look really creepy, and a little funny. As you can see:

If you are looking for a company with a wide variety of well price costumes, definitely take a peek at BuyCostumes.com.

    1. You can definitely breathe pretty well. The biggest problem for me was just the sight range. Imagine it being like a pantyhose - Easy to breath, but foggy vision.

      Worth it though, especially if you're with a group of friends, because they can just guide the way :)
