For the most part the costume was exactly as I expected. The kid loved it. The only thing about it that I would say be wary of is I ordered a 8/10 which the sizing chart said would fit kids up to 75 lbs and there is no way. If he had been any bigger it would not have fit. I would say to buy a size up from what you're expecting. My son typically wears an 8 or a 10 depending on the brand.
