A Christmas Story is my FIL's favorite movie in the world.  he actually watches the "24 hours of A Christmas Story" every year...  the FULL 24 HOURS!  well, this year, one of my hubby's brothers got him the leg lamp.  i for one cannot stand to be outdone, so i've already made him this for next year.



i still have to finish the hands and sculpt the feat, but what do you think?

That's really awesome! And inspires me to make one for a friend (we have a running joke involving a pink bunny suit). Did you use a pattern or just make it up?

i used the butterick pattern 8953.  the only changes i'm making is to attach the hood, mittins, and spats to the body, then i'm going to sculpt the bunnies on the feet just like ralphies suit.

That is the greatest thing I have ever seen. My family watches the 24 hours too...except that we kind of have it on in the background the whole day, but man, that movie is the best Christmas movie ever! Great job on the bunny suit!
