"we absolutely love this costume. excellent quality, great material and the head is padded. I agree with one of the other reviews that the dog's head falls off little one's heads easy. It was an easy fix though with a winter fleece hat, gave the dog head something to 'stick' to. She loved the costume. The nose is squishy and leather and the eyes are big and plastic. Soft material. Would definitely recommend. better quality than what you find in the halloween/costume stores."
