"We purchased this costume for a theater production my son is doing at camp. When it arrived, it was extremely hot outside, so I am not sure if that had some to do with the fact that the costume SMELLED. It was the most nauseating burned pleather smell. We had to remove it from my son's room to air it out and not stink up everything else in there. We would have sent it back but we weren't sure if there was time before the play."
