Special OOTD: Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby (Reno 911! Deputy Johnson costume)

Well this post is not an actual "outfit of the day" as it's a costume - yes, I was recently offered a partnership with a really fun online costume store and I thought, even though it's not Halloween, who doesn't like to dress up?

I'm super late with this review as this Reno 911! Deputy Johnson costume was actually sent to me back in April 2011 - at that time, I thought I would post about it around Halloween but I had some issues with the post and in the end, I totally forgot about it because I decided to dress up as Pikachu.

When I was offered to review a costume of my choice, I spent countless hours browsing Sexy Costume Discounters and I finally opted for what I thought was a classic sexy cop costume, but it's only when I received it that I realized that Reno 911! is actually a TV series that ran from 2003 to 2009.

Of course, having worked in a Halloween store last year, I know that costumes are rarely identical to what they look like in picture on a model, but some are worst than the others, and this Reno 911! Deputy Johnson costume was not that bad. It's comfortable to wear and the size Small fits me well - the belt is even too big! I guess the model on the picture wears an X-Small though because the costume looks super tight on her, and I do think it looks a bit too loose on me for my taste because hey, it's supposed to be a sexy costume after all!

I did not expect the costume to be so shiny and I don't understand the purpose of the black stripe of fabric in the front which just look weird - this was not pictured on the packaging, of course - but what I really dislike about this costume is the hat - it's not solid like it looks like on the picture, it's actually really cheap and it has no shape. I bet this could easily be fixed with some styrofoam though.

The Reno 911! Deputy Johnson costume includes the shirt, skirt, badge, belt and hat and can be easily accessorized with some aviator sunglasses and handcuffs.
