My son and I both really liked this costume. It was MUCH larger than the package indicated (said it was 3T-4T, but easily fit our seven-year-old), but we managed. The inflatable backpack is about the size of a small child itself, but it is lightweight, so that's okay.

My son couldn't wait to be a ghostbuster and was excited to find the costume at Party City. The day we purchased the costume, we immediately went home to have him try it on. He got into the jumpsuit and blew up the ghost vacuum backpack and proudly paraded around the house. The first time he removed the "gun" from the vacuum, it ripped the velcro disc away from the plastic strap and he was devastated. He took the costume off and didn't put it back on again unti Halloween day. As soon as he put it on and went to zip up the zipper on the jumpsuit, the teeth of the zipper got off track and we were unable to get them righted again. So I had to safety pin the whole front of his costume up so his clothes didn't show through. Needless to say, my $30 didn't even get us through Halloween. We were both very disappointed!

I would not recommend this costume. I ended up having to re-sew the legs because stitching was poor.

outfit very cute but backpack and gun are a waste

Comments about Boys Ghostbusters Costume:

I bought this outfit for my 5 year old because he looooves the Ghostbusters. We first got it out so he could wear it to the local trunk or treating event. The outfit was cute and fit perfect but the leg had a tear in it but it wasn't something that couldn't easily be sewn. The backpack would not keep/hold the air in it. I took the pump with us to the event to blow it up right as we got out of the car, go to put it on my son's back and the strap broke. I jimmy rigged it and tie it to itself so he can wear it but in 10 minutes it was deflated again. I take it back and exchange it for a new one so he has one for Halloween night. With high hopes I get the second one out but as soon as I do, I see that the hook that you thread the straps through is literally hanging on by a string, I jimmy rig it again so he could wear it but then find that the gun has a hole in it and won't inflate. Needless to say, that one went back too and I got my money back. I would expect that maybe from a $10 costume but not a $30 one.

WON'T buy costumes from Party City anymore!

Comments about Boys Ghostbusters Costume:

My son was so excited about being a Ghostbuster but was horribly disappointed in the product. First there were two very sticky spots that I had to clean and clean to get the sticky off. Then the straps were put on UPSIDE DOWN. That meant that the words on the pack were upside down when he wore it. The only other way would be to have it attach around his neck! Then there was a BIG HOLE in the pack at the seam so that the patch kit wouldn't work on it. So air would not stay in the pack. We tried putting duct tape on it, but air still leaked out. This was NOT A CHEAP COSTUME! Unfortunately I didn't plan enough time ahead to be able to return it, so he wore the jumpsuit without the blow up pack. He was SO DISAPPOINTED! It was a waste of money and made my 6 year old very sad. If this is the quality that Party City has in costumes, I will not be purchasing any more costumes from this site.

Absolutely Horrible!!

Comments about Boys Ghostbusters Costume:

I'm a little late with my review. I purchased this costume for my 3 1/2 year old son for Halloween. This was the worst costume I've EVER purchased. First of all the jumpsuit is not tan/khaki like in the actual movie, it's orange. Almost like a creamsicle orange. Secondly the blowup proton pack was almost taller than my son, who is on the taller side of the spectrum for his age. The clips that were supposed to fasten it to his back completely malfunctioned to the point that my husband had to basically tie it around him tight enough not to fall off. We didn't even attempt to take the gun, it should have been actually attached to the proton pack so that the kids don't have to carry it and ask for candy at the same time. The only good thing I can say about this costume is the sizing. The costume runs very large and because of that it enables you to dress your child warmly underneath. Take my advice and don't purchase this costume!!!

Real let down

Comments about Boys Ghostbusters Costume:

I bought this costume for my 7 year old son who has become completely enamored with Ghostbusters. When the costume first arrived, I thought it looked a little cheap in the quality, but didn't know how much until after he had tried in on. After putting it on and wearing it for about an hour, I noticed that not only had the seam in the crotch had ripped, but the proton pack straps would not stay put once tightened. Also, on Halloween he got dressed and we went to adjust the gun on the pack, which is connected with Velcro and the Velcro ripped off and left a hole. So before he ever got to go Trick or Treating the proton pack had a hole that had to be repaired and I had to resew seams in the costume. Needless to say, I was very disappointed with this purchase.

Great Jumpsuit! Cheesy Backpack.....

Comments about Boys Ghostbusters Costume:

I really loved the jumpsuit. It was very well made. However, the child size small could really be a medium/large! I had to alter it down a couple sizes. This was fine because my nephew could wear it for a couple years while playing "Ghostbusters".
The proton pack was another story. A blowup vinyl proton backpack was bad enough, but a vinyl BLOWUP GUN, really? My husband and I handmade a proton pack from a real backpack and put real flashing lights, a hose/protongun combo and wires on it!
Please consider providing a quality backpack/gun accessory as an additional purchase. It would be worth the extra money as an accessory.

Big hit with my boys.

Comments about Boys Ghostbusters Costume:

We received the costumes very quickly the day I was quoted. My boys couldn't wait to open the box. Within 10 minutes they had them on. Would have been sooner, I had to blow up the pac on the back. Not bad, I would recomend inflating with a balloon inflater. They loved them. very cool, they asked me to order them big so they could play in them for a long time. I was nervous about ordering them too big, but worked out great just rolled the sleeves and pant legs. They will enjoy for a long time. They were quite proud to walk in the school Halloween parade. They are ages 10 and 8 and love the Ghostbuster movies. I do have to admit I thought the price was a bit much for a lightweight jumper, and inflatable backpack. But boys agreed to pay half with their own money. They were thrilled with their purchase.
