"Initially, I was thrilled with our daughter's choice of this costume. It is cute and age appropriate. She wears a size 8 in pants, and this costume just fits her. It is a bit lightweight, but it has some give in it, and it is comfortable for her. The velcro is sturdy enough to keep the tail on in the back, and it does not interfere when she sits down. One of the ears on the headband does not want to stand up, but the headband is well-wrapped so it is comfortable behind her ears. Overall, I am happy with this costume."
