In all seriousness, this is a pretty adorable costume that we were excited to receive and are even more excited to review. You'll be able to win a Gift Card to acquire one of your own at the end of this post, but first, keep reading so you can have a better idea of what you will be getting!
The Yoda Costume you are seeing here is a Star Wars child costume in USA Size 2-4 for kids ages one to two. It's a pretty simple costume containing a headpiece and hooded robe, but there's no question as to who he's pretending to be (although from the cell phone pictures, my mom thought he was Shrek). Aias is over 2.5 but he's quite small for his age as he only weighs 25 lbs and the costume fits a bit large on him, but the hat fits a bit smaller. I think this is because he has the head of a regular sized 2.5 year old and the body of a smaller kid. I believe on a regular sized one or two year old, it would probably fit this way as it is intended to:
You can get an idea of the fabric and design if you click on these images.
|Front view: the velcro and straps are nice and thick.|
|Back view: a nice full fit. At least, if you have a child with a normal sized head :)|
|I love the stitching on the front of the hat. Not super elaborate but perfect to get the Yoda message across.|
A final thing I like about this costume is that it survived the washing machine AND the dryer and came out looking new. I remember a long time ago I purchased a bag costume from a costume shop and I put it in the dryer: big mistake. It was such horrible quality that the stitching came undone and the felt was horribly pilled. This costume took the washer and dryer like a champion, despite the fact that it clearly says "hand wash cold water" inside the tag. I couldn't help myself, I had to test it. If you have a child and you are looking for a Halloween costume for them, you know that washability is pretty important. This past Halloween Aias and I went to no fewer than 6 Halloween events and he wore his costume to all of them. He had spilled hot cocoa and worse on it, and luckily it survived the wash. This costume will survive a Halloween and will be nice to pass on to friends or younger siblings, or will be a great addition to any trunk of dress-up clothes.
So before the giveaway, here's one last picture. This is a crappy cell phone pic, but I think it's adorable. Aias was thrilled to roam Granville Street in this costume, but then he got tired of walking:
And don't worry, if Star Wars isn't your thing, you can still use your gift card for any costume on their site.
