These are my boys in their costumes. Mike is George Bush, but a little different. He couldn't resist the cigar and I have totally lost the name of who it was we thought he looked more like than our President. He propped some pillows up in the chair one night and put the mask at the top with a quilt over the lap and an army hat and had it facing the bathroom door so I'd see it first thing in the morning. He got me. :)
Nick is Willy Wonka. He made his costume, basically. He used some of my acrylic paint to paint the goggles white. He's had them for a long time..just to wear...but painted them last week. He bought a hat that he thought was like Willy Wonka but realized it was the wrong color, too, so he turned it inside out and made a band for it out of the fabric he used....TO MAKE THE BLAZER! Yes, he made the blazer. Pattern? Nope. He didn't like anything he could buy so he had his dad take him to get fabric and he just made it. Isn't that amazing? It fits him so well. He won "best costume" at the Halloween party he attended Saturday night. Yay.
