Costumes typically look so much prettier in the photos online or in the costume store. But when we got it, it's absolutely beautiful! Lots of detail put into the dress, and there's nothing "cheap" looking about it. The dress is very elaborate and very long. It drags a couple of feet behind my daughter as she walks in it. Overall though my daughter is very happy with this dress. I will definitely be looking at this store when searching for costumes.
