"This is a gorgeous costume in person. The foam "muscles" are nicely stitched and well-proportioned. The material looks really nice for the price of the costume- doesn't look like it will rip easily. Things to know: the opening to get into this costume does not open as wide as I'd like, so my son will have a hard time getting out of it on his own to heed the call of nature. Also, my son's clothing size is right between a 7 and 8, depending on the brand. I bought the 7/8 size of this costume, and it fits very close to the body- no room for shorts and a t-shirt underneath. If your child has a long torso, this costume will be a little snug in the inseam."
