My son is simply fascinated with Panda bears. It all started with a children's movie.

So I don't need to say anymore about what he's going to be this Halloween. Last year I went looking for a Panda costume, and no stores carried any. I special ordered one. And at 40 bucks, I removed my worries of what he was going to be next year. That's why last year the suit was much bigger than the child. At this price I planned ahead.
