This is costume is brand new for 2007. The octopus is made from a soft, thin and cool polysatin with a padded head and tentacles. This costume is so well put together with great colors and fabric choices- it could work for a boy or girl. The trunk portion of the costume is sack like with two holes for the arms and one for the legs allowing it to fit one size up to about 25-30 pounds.
The weight and thickness of this costume is perfect for warm climates where it could be worn as is and in cool climates where under layers could be added. But most of all it is comfortable!! The thing that most often spoils halloween for babies and toddlers is a thick uncomfortable costume that is too hot and binding. That won't happen to your child with this one.
Shirt and tights not included.
The costume is ready to ship if you want to buy early for those Halloween photos you want to send out.
