My nephew finally received his Pikachu hoodie! I'm impressed it took only one week to ship from US to Australia via USPS First Class mail! Needless to say, he loved it and here are some pictures of him wearing it.
Judging from the photos, it looks like there is enough ease in the hoodie that will allow him to wear it for more than one season!
If you missed it, here is the post detailing the hoodie sewing process.
