Let’s rewind back to Valentine’s Day. A time where many women blow money on lingerie for their significant others, to when men spend big bucks on jewelry, flowers, and giant stuffed animals. I celebrated by ordering a Captain Phasma suit.

I shit you not, Evil Geeks. I had the option to review and wear plus sized lingerie, but chose to be Captain Phasma instead. Anyway…it’s long past February so this review and the photoshoot is super overdue, but better late than never, right friends?

With Halloween right around the corner, I would highly recommend this Phasma costume to my other Star Wars: The Force Awakens loving peeps. It’s made of foam so you don’t have the discomfort and immobility caused by full armored suits (believe me, real molded armor is not fun or ideal for Halloween drinking or comfort in general). You won’t be able to pee in real armor, but this costume is velcro back so it makes it MEGA easy and functional. It’s so comfortable, it’s comparable to one of those onesie pajamas. Yet, instead of looking cute and cuddly, you look metal and badass. The helmet is one of my favorite things about this costume as well. It comes in two pieces so you can easily adjust it to the shape of your own head. It’s padded inside for extra comfort/to absorb the inevitable sweat that occurs when you wear masks. It’s made of plastic, but not the super thin or cheap kind of plastic. This helmet is actually sturdy and looks amazing. I also really love the cape. It’s made to drape just right over one shoulder and looks fierce. The only issues I had with this costume were that it doesn’t come with gloves (I’m wearing my own in this photo), and that there’s a bit of a gap where the helmet ends and the neckline begins, which is a quick and easy fix– turtleneck under-armour does the trick.

You can easily modify this costume to higher quality as well — my long term goal for this outfit is to use clear Worbla thermoplastic to make a hard outer shell armor to go over the suit! Also, to make the fabric shinier/more metallic. I’ll give this costume a 4.5/5!

Thanks to CostumeSupercenter for sponsoring this outfit! You can grab this and tons of other sweet costumes at their website, http://costumesupercenter.com/. Happy Halloween!
