Not what was pictured or described.

This costume was not at all what I expected. I would honestly return it if it wasn't worth the trouble or cost, and my daughter still really wants to be Lagoona for Halloween.
I ordered the 10/12 for my 10 yr old (who wears normal size 10/12 clothes) based on the reviews saying the sizing ran small. This costume is not small. I should definitely have gone for the 8/10. I've had to pin the skirt to keep it on. The net leggings go to her ankles, and she'll have to wear a shirt under it because the top is so large it hangs halfway down her chest.
But my biggest grief comes from the fins. Nowhere in the pictures or description does it mention how the fins are attached. In fact I'll quote directly "Includes leggings with attached fins." Note it says attached. Well, the fins are attached to loops of nude nylon type material that go around their arms and legs. It looks absolutely ridiculous. I was expecting something either stick on, or attached to the bottom edge of the jacket and leggings. My daughter looks like she has bandages wrapped around her arms and legs where the fins are. And if your child happens to have darker colored skin, I can imagine it would look even worse. We plan on fixing it by cutting off the nylon bits and sewing them to the jacket and leggings, work I was trying to avoid by purchasing a costume in the first place.
I feel completely deceived in the description and pictures of this costume and am disappointed that I spent money on it in the first place. I'm also wondering why these "quirks" have not been mentioned in any of the other rave reviews on this product.
