I was worried the costume would be too small or fall apart the second I took it out of the package, based on other reviews on here and Amazon. I went ahead and ordered anyway, since my daughter was set on being Frankie and I couldn't find the costume in her size anywhere else. I ordered her a size bigger than her normal clothes and hoped for the best.
When it arrived I pulled it out, prepared for the worst. Yes, there were some loose strings inside near the zipper. This was caused by the cut edges of the material not being finished off, but not a huge deal. I snipped them off with scissors, and problem solved.
The costume wasn't too small. I don't think it runs super small as others have said. If anything, it was almost too big. My daughter is average sized for an 8 yr old, I think. Yes, the sleeves are made of nylon material, like the tights. This worked out great. Sure, it snags easily, but all nylons do. Dab a bit of fingernail polish on the snags before they turn to runs, and you're good to go. The belt was a bit disappointing, but I was prepared for that. We covered the lightening bolt with glitter and put some on each of the circles around it and it was tons better.
All in all, my daughter was overjoyed with her costume, and had a great time wearing it. I would recommend it.
