I ordered this costume and paid the extra price to have it custom made to my measurements. I measured myself with a tape measure multiple times and sent those exact measurements in. That being said, the costume feels very loose. It's not falling off of me, but I wish it hugged my body more. And the shoes are absolutely ginormous. I can slip in and out of them while they are completely zipped. I'll have to wear like 3 pairs of socks just to keep them from falling off while I walk.
Other than the oversized costume, the material feels pretty good. I didn't realize the pants would be elastic waistband (like sweatpants) so they kind of bubble at the waist. Same with the armbands. Also, the thumb feels longer than the other fingers, so mine almost disappears when wearing the gloves. The belt thing is also very loose and thus difficult to place properly. I have to barely have the velcro touching to make it look right.
The vinyl parts at the top of the costume and on the cape are very stiff. I feel like I need to shape them on a mannequin with heat or something (which I don't have). Also, there's 2 pieces of velcro on the back of the top, but they don't appear to connect to anything. I attempted to stick them to similarly positioned pieces on the cape, but they wouldn't stick (same side of the velcro hat doesn't stick to each other). So not sure what to do with that. And it's difficult to get the cape to sit properly, it keeps wanting to slide back and that front piece digs into my neck when that happens. Again, maybe if I had away to shape the vinyl with heat it would sit better, but I'd need a mannequin or something.
Anyway, if it fit me better, I would be happier. It's just disappointing that I had it custom made to my measurements, but it's an inch to an inch and half bigger everywhere. Don't get me wrong, I'm still gonna wear it to the Multiverse of Madness premiere, but it looks a bit baggy.
So I guess when you are measuring for custom, take an inch off or something so it's not too loose. I would still recommend this costume for teh quality,
