I was so excited to see the thread but that quickly waned when I saw the actual costumes.... Idk, they look great and cute and all, but not my taste at all. They just look so, idk, strange to me. I guess it's what DuffyDaisuki said, they're very Japanese. I usually like that, but idk not these. Last year's was definitely the best! So versatile and much more mature looking. These look more kiddie like. I like my bears dressing more sophisticated and "grown up".
