I have a son who is a boy through and through. He is a true southern redneck, but he also loves getting decked out in nice clothes, as long as they’re still masculine. He loves his Halloween costume this year! This costume is darling and comes up beautifully in pictures. It is vibrant and well-made and quite unique. At the same time, it also retains a masculine quality that didn’t make my son feel girly dressing up with his sisters. He didn’t care for the ears (headband qualms), but he thought his vest and coat were amazing. I paired him with my oldest daughter in Alice (the blue pants of the rabbit suit were perfectly suited to make the Alice dress stand out) and my youngest daughter in the Queen of Red Hearts. The black and white checkered material is the same on both this costume and the Queen of Red Hearts making them a PERFECT matching set. My son is also special needs and was not bothered by the material, which is all soft and not at all scratchy and also did well with the roominess of the costume as he still has to wear diapers even though he is 8 years old. He has wild, curly hair, so we had a hard time keeping the headband in place as it just slid around over his hair, but the costume didn’t require the headband, to be honest. A lot of people just thought he was the Mad Hatter when he didn’t have the headband, which works for me. All in all, yet another excellent costume from the ever-resplendent costume selections of Trish Scully.
