Sparkling Bow Ties
I love the bow ties. This will be great for our employee fashion show. Lots of sparkle for a great price.

Purchased these for a 6th grade Hollywood themed graduation party for the boys. Now I understand what the other reviewers were saying. These are cheaply made. When they arrived, they were packaged in a way that made the ties curled, so I tried to pop them back into bow tie shape. On several of them, the center piece broke open and I was left with a flat piece of paper covered in sequins - which is essentially what these ties are. I would've given them a one star rating, but for the price and their purpose - kids wearing them for a couple of hours - I guess they're okay. If you're looking for quality though, I do not recommend them.

Would not recomend these to anyone. Very poorly made and knot for bow was off center on most.

I was quite disappointed with this item because the backing is paper. I expected fabric. I can buy a bow-tie for $1.00 and add sequins. I thought because I was buying in bulk and random colors, that the quality would be better.

I bought these for an Oscar's themed party for the guys to wear. They worked pretty well. Are a little flimsy, but still work great as party favors/props.

I just didn't read the description of this well enough. The bowties are basically sequins attached to a piece of white cardboard, which was weird. They were kind of squished from the box and didn't totally bounce back into a normal shape. But for the price, they got the job done.

Overall good product.
I bought these as party game prizes for my daughter's birthday party. Overall it's a good product. If you fiddle with it too much, the middle of the bowtie will detach (it's glued), but it still holds its shape. The kids had fun with it.

Bought these bow ties for costumes at my daughter's theater. They looked great on our Broadway dancers and stood up to lots of abuse. I think one or two of them broke but we fixed them with a safety pin.

Sparkly, but quality is not great
I bought these for a children's theatre musical review. They will sparkle nicely, but I fear they will barely hold up through dress rehearsal and the show. They are made of strips of sequins that are glued on to a bow tie shaped backing. The sequins barely wrap around the edges. I probably could have made them myself (and might in the future if I need more).

Good costume accessories, not exactly high brow
These are not actual bowties, but rather sequined pieces of interfacing with an elastic strap. The illusion is there, though. Good for dress up play or amateur events or performances, fine for party costume accessories. Just don't expect anything fancy.
