My 4yr old son, Dane, loves the Beatles so for Halloween we sent him out as Paul McCartney.  We made him a Beatles suit using the pattern pictured below.  We also tried our best to recreate one of Paul McCartney's guitars.  Our original plan was to recreate his Hofner bass but it just wasn't turning out as well as we had hoped.  The one we ended up with is just a cheap little kid guitar from Toys R Us that we added a black pick guard to.  I'm beyond pleased with how everything turned out.  I was even more pleased with how many people knew who he was supposed to be!

Anyway, on with the show! Smiley

It's okay to swoon a little ladies Smiley

We had a blast running around the back alleys of our area looking for spots to take the perfect Beatles style photo shoot pics.

Here is the pattern we used:

We got it off Etsy.  Its an original from 1969.

And of course here is one of the many many Paul McCartney pictures we used for inspiration:

Thanks for looking! Smiley

That's about as groovy as it gets!  And your search for backgrounds paid off - it's perfect!

He looks great, did you cut his hair also?

Nope, he normally sports a shaggy early Beatles looking style.  Not because we are that Beatles crazy, but because my husband and I think he looks best with longer shaggier hair. Smiley
