DESIGN & DETAILS
Rather than fight against a war that nobody is ever going to win, we think you’ll enjoy leaning into the sure victory of your kiddo’s cute grin while wearing this exclusive Cupid costume for toddlers.

It worked great as this white jersey tunic is overlaid with the lovely golden toga. The heart-inspired wings are attached to the back of the tunic, and an attached golden braided cord functions as a belt, complete with cute felt hearts at the ends.
