"I purchased this costume for my 2 year old. I bought it because I thought the way the ears stuck out made this the best elephant costume that I've seen. I received the actual costume and the ears do not stick out. They are very droopy. Also, the picture shows the area around the face as being stuffed or thick. It's not. The material is VERY thin and flimsy. I'm really disappointed with this costume. As previous commenter stated, it's not sewn well and the velcro closures need to be restitched. I'm getting ready to try to make the ears stick out by inserting a piece of wire coat hanger through the ears and the top of the head."
