My son had an Egyptian Day at school and when I saw this costume online, it sounded perfect. The velour was lovely and soft, so I knew he would be comfortable. However, when he came home, you could see his upper arms were red from the itching and irritation from the shiny edging around the short sleeves. Also the head piece was way too small for him, even though I had ordered a large size costume, I believe the fit is a standard size for all sizes. It just fitted my 4 year old, so my 9 year old went without a head piece to school. It was an ok costume for one day's wear.
