Review from Amazon: This costume is very original, and has an elastic bottom so it stretches to fit. The lobster claws are the cutest part. They attach to the hands so whenever the baby is waving its arms, it looks like they are waving their claws! Word of caution: this costume is made of a shiny slippery fabric and may not be ideal for infants that you plan to hold in your arms. Also, be aware that your little one will need to wear a red or orange outfit underneath. The tights are not included in the costume.

Those are cute. I didn't buy one last year, couldn't find one I really liked. Instead, I improvised. My son had a Rock Star shirt he got for his birthday, so for Halloween, I put that on him, and put, purple, blue, and silver gel through his hair looked, super cute. This coming Halloween, we are gonna ll be super Heros.
