*UPDATED w/ PICS*For Sale-3 Creature Reachers & 1 Night Stalker Costume USED ONCE!

Hey guys, I am just beginning to list my stuff and I am starting with the Creature Reachers and Night Stalker costumes. I bought them brand new last year from an online Halloween store and they were only used Halloween night for our haunt. They were neatly bagged and boxed the next morning and are in EXCELLENT condition!

I want to make mention that when you get these costumes from the company, they come with pvc poles stuck down into the hands for you to hold onto when you wear them but everyone found the poles to be too difficult to use so we removed them all and hollowed some of the Great Stuff foam out of the arms. This not only made the movements appear more realistic, it made the costume shirts fit better. I ended up making shirts for the 3 Creature Reachers because the "burlap vest" the company sends with these is a joke.

We also had to add padding to the masks because they don't come with enough to keep them from collapsing in on themselves and I think we did a great job.

I have for sale:

Midnight Howler (retails for $267 and up)

Bad Seed (retails for $287 and up)

Scarecrow (retails for $287 and up)

and the Night Stalker is called Shadow Stalker. (retails for $255 and up)

You can research these online or email me if you would like pictures. I am giving you guys first shot at them and if I still have them 30 days from now, they will be listed on CraigsList.

Sorry for not adding the price last night ... it was late ... I was tired. :p

Anyhow, I am asking $200 apiece for them, plus buyer pays shipping. I will find the absolute rock-bottom way to ship to reduce the charges. These are deluxe, oversized costumes and shipping will be determined by zipcode. I will not add any handling fees.

I've been a member on here for 5 years and have, what I believe to be, a good reputation. I have also been an Ebay seller for 10 years with a 100% positive feedback. That being said, I consider myself to be a very honest person that potential buyers can trust. :)

I'm selling these because we are no longer doing a haunt and there will be TONS more stuff to follow. This is just all I could muster this week. lol!

Sad to see yet another person giving up their haunt. Although I myself have yet to find a place to haunt this year and time is ticking away.

So sorry to hear that you are selling these. Good luck with your sales.

Hi guys. :)

For everyone that has pm'd me, I am responding as quick as I can.

My son's b-day is tomorrow so I am snowed under today with stuff to do but on Sunday I am going to get a weight on all of the costumes and that way I will be able to give shipping quotes to everyone.

People have asked about payment methods and I have to say that I really don't want to take Paypal because of the fees involved. I'm requesting a money order or check but if it is a personal check, I won't ship until after it clears MY bank.

And lastly, yes, these items will ship insured for the purchase amount, not below. I think Fed Ex is probably going to be the least expensive method.

I have a few pictures from last year's haunt of the actors in the costumes so I will post those today. :)

They don't fit my theme this year so they won't work for me. I just wanted to tell everyone that $200 is a great price. That's the cheapest you can ever find them on sale for, and the modifications you made help a lot. A Creature Reacher right out of the box leaves a lot to be desired.

SD, you are correct, they do leave a lot to be desired when you first buy them; especially those posts they put in the hands. Useless .... totally useless. Our actors could only get their hands inside of them up to the wrists basically and so the whole "oversized" effect was lost because so much of their arms showed. Much better without them.

Yes, they are all still available and I have them all down from the attic now and can give shippings costs to whomever sends me their zipcode.

The $200 price tag is firm, for now at least.

I had to get an estimate on shipping for someone for the Bad Seed (the pumpkin) costume and through Fed Ex, 3-day shipping with $200 worth of insurance, it was $24 and some change to her zipcode. I am guessing any of these will be roughly the same amount, give or take a few bucks, depending on where you live.

They are, at this time, all still available.

I just wanted to let everyone know that these are all still available for purchase and they are also now listed on Craigslist for Meridian, Mississippi.
