Ok guys - Halloween is coming. Last year was a big flop for me. . . we ended scrambling for the last available Target costume on THE 31st of October. Hello? The year before (his first Halloween) he was Einstein with a crafty wig and pocket protector and all - it was so cute! So I was determined to get something made that we would have fun with. Luckily, my uber creative momma (Dinks as she is now known) was able to provide some creative direction. . . this from the lady who whipped up handmade and amazing costumes every year for us growing up, of course (post worthy, fully hand cut paper amazingness. . . I can't even explain). So a google search or two later I was off and running on our 1920s weightlifter - slicked hair, weight belt, hand cut felt (of course) shield, cardboard belt buckle and pencil thin mustache. I LOVE it! Now, it does play to Bugger's strengths - this is a big kid. 2 yrs old going on 3, and solid as a rock. So we went with it. Here's to a holiday all about expressing yourself (and your strengths!). Happy early Halloween!
