"This is the first year that I am not making a costume and was very worried about the quality of this "store bought" costume. The costume does have the downside of material that is easily snagged. However, the quality is better than I thought for the price I paid. My son (age 7) LOVES it. The size was true to his height (he was right at 48 inches, but has the waist of a 4-5 year old-- we ordered the small and glad we did...)"
