A few Halloweens ago, as kids were gearing up to trick-or-treat, Disney debuted a new costume that had people up in ARMS...
The children's costume was inspired by the character Maui — a Polynesian god voiced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the film Moana — and included an "island-style skirt" made of fabric leaves, rope necklace, and fabric brown skin with tattoos.

The zip-up costume cost about $50 — not including the matching wig (another $15).
