Please note that all our carnival costumes are meticulously handmade by master artisans one piece at a time. Due to this process, there may be a slight variation from one item to the next and slight variations from the sample costume pictured. Such variations are inherent in the manufacturing of handmade products, so you may expect minor distinctions that will make your purchase special and truly one of a kind. Once an item is purchased, no refunds are accepted. This is due to the cost of materials and other expenses as each piece is planned, designed, customized, crafted, and purchased to meet production and delivery deadlines.
