Questions.. All from the same potential buyer
(My responses italics in brackets)

What size child does the costume fit?
(Fits an average toddler from 1-2yo)
Is that US or international sizing?
😐

How does the costume feel when on?
(As per ad, it is new unopened and never worn)
Is it scratchy when worn?
😐

Can you post it?
(As per ad, pick up only from XXX address)
Can you bring it to YYY address?
😐

Can I pick it up today at 1.15pm?
(Yes you can)
(At 1.45pm – Are you picking it up today? You said 1.15pm?)
From your last response I wasn’t sure if you meant yes. I’ll be there in 15 minutes.
😐

What does it look like?
(As per pictures)
Are the pictures representative of actual appearance?
😐

One last question – is it flammable?
(Only if you set fire to your child while they’re wearing it)
So is it?
