It's real. 

Possibly a stonefly.

It's real, I tried to buy one but my bid of .99$ didn't go very far:P

sorry I can't help with an ID, it's a nice bug though!

It's impossible to be certain of the ID without seeing any of the wings, and without a very clear close-up of the head.  However, the overall aspect suggests a crane fly (Tipulidae), but this ID is far from certain.

$5 seems a great deal. I want some at that price. :)
