Candy Cane Costume
cute candy cane outfit
Bought this outfit to be worn by a child in our church's Christmas play. Very easy to put on. Just have the kid wear white or red and they're on their way. The only complaint I have is that the hat was a little too big. We will be putting a white or red tobogan on the child then putting on the hat to make sure it's not falling into her eyes.

Good - but needs TLC to work right
We got these, rush delivery, as Christmas parade costumes. We were pleased with the fabric, but the hats were definitely a problem. I can see where little children would have problems with the large hat size, but we used them for bigger kids, so the large hats were actually good for us. Our issue was that the strings all came off. Well, only one string on each hat oand one on each tabard, which made them impossible to tie on or shut.
The real issue, though, was that the hats wouldn't stand up, as shown in the photographs. We had to stuff them with plastic grocery bags (light enough to stand up without toppling over.)
All in all, we made them work - and for the price, we were very happy with the costumes. Luckily, they are nice enough quality fabric that they will keep for several years, so we'll have lots of time to replace the strings with proper ribbon ties. I'd still recommend them!

Great price, the only problems were the hat was a little too big so it had to be altered and the tie string for the hat was in the wrong place and was altered also.

Cute and Affordable
Very cute and affordable costume for Christmas Pageant at school. Only problem was the hat. I don't know why they would make it so large for a child, it was to big for an adult. It slipped all the way down to her shoulders and was very heavy. I took it up so it didn't slip down for the concert and it worked fine. Overall it was a great purchase.

Purchased this product as required by my son's preschool for his Christmas Program. The shipping took a while, but I did not pay for expedited shipping. Be sure to give yourself the two weeks when ordering. The hat did not stay up as others have said and the chin tie was not placed in good location. The white stripes were stained from the red. Over all it was not less than I expected and was a fair price.

These are AWESOME!!!
An affordable candy cane costume??? Yes please!
This costume, though made for kids, is perfect for adults as well. The smock dress fits like a long shirt and the hats don't even need to be altered to fit our heads!
We purchased 3 for a work related party and couldn't help but put them on as soon as the box arrived.
Highly recommended for people willing to look a little goofy going out to have a fun time!

I had several children wear this costume in a Christmas Parade. The kids - boys and girls - liked them and they were the favorite choice out of all the other candy costumes I ordered from Oriental Trading. The only downside is that the hats were a little large. I stuffed them with tissue paper to give them a fuller look, but too much paper makes them hard to stand up.

I bought this costume for a homecoming float parade. I was sooooooooooo pleased. I thought it would be very cheap and uncomfortable, but my daughter loved it. The hat stood up on her head the entire parade. She wants to wear it for halloween now!
