"Seriously the cutest costume ever! We received so many compliments on this! My daughter did not mind the headpiece at all; she left it on all day (this is very unusual for her as she will typically not leave anything on her head.) But I think because this entire costume was lined with a thin soft net-like material she did not mind it. THis seemed to fit true to size, and was easy on and off with velcro enclosures.."
