GIANT SQUID SIGHTING
We were under the impression that giant squids preferred submerging themselves in the deepest darkest corners of the sea— apparently, that's not always the case. A rare giant squid was spotted wandering the streets in a town near you and it's boggling the minds of scientists and townspeople alike. Though imposing, the ginormous aquatic monster seems to be friendly and jovial so no need to fear being dragged down to his underwater lair. On the contrary, the giant squid seems to be looking for friends. He keeps reaching his tentacles outward and it seems as though he wants a high-five, maybe even a hug!
Upon a second examination, we agreed that this underwater anomaly is actually a man in a really, really convincing giant squid costume. It sure fooled us and a handful of puzzled marine biologists! If dressing as a squid would get your tentacles all in a twist (and that's a good thing) then this costume will make your Halloween go swimmingly.
DESIGN & DETAILS
Created by our team of talented and sea-life-obsessed designers, this costume is essentially a top with an attached hood. The two tentacles that fall on either side feature elastic straps so arms discreetly hide underneath. Six more tentacles surround the body and hang below the knees. The costume zips up in the back and a traditional cephalopod head with bulging eyes serves as the attached hood to complete the costume.
Hey, want to hear a silly squid joke? (We're going to tell you anyway.) How many tickles does it take to make a squid laugh? Ten-tickles. Pretty silly, huh? Use your movable tentacles to inspire some silly shenanigans this Halloween by flailing them around as much as possible since you're the one and only squid-a-marinky-dinky dude. (Okay, we'll stop with the squid jokes... for now!)

- I love this costume, but the singular Adult size fit didn't suit my height and body type.By Violetta | October 31, 2020Height 5'4 | Weight 165 | Size StandardI wore this out on Halloween while running errands. I mean, 2020 sucks so why not dress up as a big squid and make people smile. I got a lot of compliments on this. Using it for my 2020 nautical themed family Christmas/holiday photo as well. Heck, it's so versatile you can wear it to comic-cons and Lovecraft conventions and community events in sleepy seaside villages. Kids LOVE it so why not get one and volunteer at a children's hospital as the resident squishy squid person.
The only reason it's a 4 star and not a 5 is because the standard sizing sorta sucks if you're not the right shape for this costume, ie. a tall lean man. If they had something between a child size and standard adult size, that likely would have been perfect. It's too low on my neck but covers too much of my forehead area. I didn't like how much t-shirt neck was visible and the back tentacles dragged on the ground at times. However, the top part/head did stay up better than expected. The arms don't stay on and look as good as pictured - some of the fabric curls up a bit so I didn't bother using the arm loops.
Lastly, if you're one of these people who are worried about appearing "fat" - this isn't for you, Definitely adds some girth, it's the thickness of a sleeping bag.
Would buy again and recommend. Makes you feel like a big happy squid.Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.Was this review helpful to you?
