Your little cutie will look even more precious in the Christmas Darling Child Costume. The hooded red velvet dress comes with a black belt and features an attached hood, long sleeves and white plush trim on the hood, cuffs and hemline. The dress is in the style of the traditional Santa Claus outfit, made famous by the Coca-Cola Company in the 1920s. But the first time Santa was seen in an outfit similar to this was in drawings by Thomas Nast in Harper's weekly beginning in 1862. He also illustrated the classic book A Visit from St. Nicholas. For many years, Santa's coat was drawn in different colors by various artists. By the time Coke became involved, red was the dominant color and likely because of its influence, it has remained red. Stockings and footwear are not included.
