"You ever seen one of these? No you haven't. I invented it."

My 2yo is always doing Vector's little "oh yeah" and the dance, so I decided to make him a Vector costume for Halloween.

Believe it or not, the pants and jacket each used to be a pair of youth 2XL swim trunks Smiley The launcher is a toy ball shooter painted white, inside a Method antibacterial wipes container and I made the squid too! I was all over town looking for a squid toy and finally just made it myself and I'm super happy with how it turned out.

Just so cool!  Your little guy is awesome in his costume - all of it is great - the costume, the accessories and him wearing it.  I like most of all the way you used makeup for the glasses - easy peasy for little guys!  Way Clever too.  He's really cute, and I'll bet the crowd's reaction was positive too.  You are one talented mom!  Smiley

Thanks! I tried to get glasses but he's got such a tiny head! And he wouldn't even let me try a pair on him, much less wear them an entire evening. I can get the face paint on somewhat straight, if I bribe him with a lollipop to sit still.
