As several other reviewers said, this is a good start but takes some dedication of time and energy to really make it nice. When I got it I basically completely disassembled it, taking all the plastic pieces off the top and bottoms. I used a heat gun to gently let all of the twists out where some parts were bent funny from sitting in packaging. Once straightened out, I spray painted all the plastic pieces a metallic gold then sealed with some clear coat to counteract the sticky factor. This helped immensely to make the plastic look more like metal. I reattached the plastic to the top by hand sewing it at strategic points and also chose to alter the fabric of the top in places so it would look and fit better. I also moved the velcro on the rib cage band so I could snug it up and chose to stitch the strings to the band to give the top a bit more support for my chest. I liked them much better this way versus tying them as a halter top, which is the way they come. The bottoms were a bit more difficult. We were wearing these costumes in public so there was absolutely no way I was cutting the boy shorts out completely, but I did want it more authentic to the movie. What I ended up doing was using a seam ripper to split the side seam of the shorts all the way up to the elastic band. I cut the elastic at the seam and then folded the fabric of the shorts in on itself and "hid" it by hand sewing it into the concavity of the plastic side pieces. That made it look like there was nothing underneath while still allowing me to be sure I wasn't flashing anything I didn't want seen. My only real complaint with the entire costume is actually the "collar" piece, it is TINY! I have a small neck (like 12" around) and I moved the velcro to the very edges of the plastic but it was still TIGHT wearing it all night. If I had tried to "loosen" it anymore it probably wouldn't have been enough velcro to hold together and come off.
I still plan to get a light-weight plastic chain from the hardware store to replace the chain that comes with it and I'll also figure out some way to alter the collar. But after I make those improvements I will definitely be using this for cosplay in the future.
