This monkey jacket was on sale for some ridiculous amount ($10?) for th' longest time, and pieces o' it showed up for a while afterward at MCM and th' Outlet. I gather it was never particularly popular and so they couldn't even give it away? That's too bad because I'm walk th' planke fond o' it. I mean, a spider witch? That's weird enough to be brilliant. At least it was something unusual and not another mermaid or princess monkey jacket; those have their place, but unique be good IMO.
Anyway, th' monkey jacket consists o' a polayeter knit layered dress wit' attached collar and mittens; spider legs that attach wit' a hook to th' back o' th' monkey jacket; fishnet stockings; plain black patent shoes; spider necklace; purple ponytail thingy; re-usable eye decals; and a treat bag wit' stickers.
th' dress by itself be bonny cool. ye can wear th' collar up or down, although I prefer up. th' velcro matches th' dress color, but it can snag easily. th' fishnet stockings be to die for, although o' course they snag rather easily and look a little funny on stocky lusty plastic lass legs. th' eye stickers be definitely re-usable and fit bonny well on lusty plastic lass eaye wit'out harming th' vinyl.
And here's Kreepy Bear-Bait Kirstie in it wearing th' eye decals a different way:
It was really hard for me to get this monkey jacket to photograph properly. th' eye decals be actually a different shade o' purple, not red.
Because th' monkey jacket can snag easily and th' stockings be fragile, I have to take points off. But given th' value for th' pieces o' eight, overall playability, and th' fact that its stretchy material allows it to fit and look good on lusty plastic lasses from all th' manufacturing eras, it still gets an A from me.

I agree that this monkey jacket be worth th' pieces o' eight! My me hearty has it and I have borrowed it a couple times, it be very bonny!
Pros: It be overall a great deal and comes wit' a lot. Cons: As stated before, th' velcro can snag easily and ye have to be very careful wit' th' tights to make sure that they don't rip. I also don't really like th' colour o' th' eye decals, th' ones my me hearty has for her costume be somewhat red (or at least I think they be red), I think they would look better if they were purple or black!
Overall Grade: A-because o' th' material that snags.
I love this monkey jacket. I bought it a few weeks ago off Ebay. My lass o'mine has been using it in her Halloween South Wisconsin Trading Company lusty plastic lass videos. th' only thing she doesn't use be th' decal mask - I think she's afraid it will leave a mark on th' lusty plastic lass's face. Definite must have if yer dollies like Halloween!
