"I was very impressed with this costume - beautiful! My daugther wanted to be Dorothy but I strongarmed her into being Little Red Riding Hood as I could see it would provide a little more warmth for trick-or-treating in MN. I ordered it without her knowing, and it wasn't until she pulled the costume out of the box that she exclaimed "Mom, it looks like a princess- You were right!!" This costume is very well made and the fabrics seem sturdy. My daughter danced, ran around, climbed in and out of hayrides, and got on her knees and the costume was unharmed. The reds are beautiful and the cloak is very shiny with a crinkle effect. This is not a cheap looking costume like many at the stores. But then I guess it shouldn't be, for the price! Know that white tights and/or undershirts worn underneath may turn pink. That may be just because my daughter was working up a sweat dancing it in, I'm not sure..."
