    Sep 2, 2008, 11:07 PM - Anyone have any experience with this kit? #1

    I just bought this kit for my son on ebay and was wondering what you guys on TDH thought about it or maybe some of you bought from this guy before. Anyways just wondering what I just bought, and if I'm gonna be happy or frustrated all to heck. Thx.

    Heres the link to the auction.

    It looks nice, but then so does SFP stuff on ebay. Personally, I can't justify spending $100 on a child's costume that he'll outgrow in what will probably amount to a matter of months depending on the child's growth rate. We got my nephew a cheaper one for $50 from a costume shop and it looks like this... (this was before I spot fixed the belt with more velcro to make it sit higher.)



    It had alot of the small details and looked great. I'm hoping the kit turns out well for you, as it will no doubt send the kid over the edge with happiness. Let us know how it goes.

    My boy is 7 now, but I have another son who is 1 1/2 so he will get it next. 100 dollars is nothing for a costume for my son, I've been goin all out every year for Halloween since he was 4, I'm not about to stop now. Next year I'll be starting on another Boba costume for him. I don't know, I just find it extremely more rewarding dressing up my son in elaborate costumes rather than myself, he gets a great kick out of it as well. Anyways, thx for the answers. I'm hoping all goes well.

    One more question though. What should I use for an undersuit? I've been looking at cold weather under armor but that would be another 80 dollars for the pants and shirt, but I just can't find anything else that is form fitting and thick and strong enough to hold the armor up. Any suggestions?

    Well you could go to walmart and get a skeleton costume for cheap and just use the body suit. With the armor on the bones probably won't be visable. Walmart also carries the off brand of underarmor. Not sure if for younglings though.
