While both of my sons are posing here, the costume I'm entering is my oldest son's Inspector Gadget costume.  While Raven from Fortnite took the longest and caused the most anguish (those EYES) I figured Inspector Gadget had a broader appeal and was more recognizeable.  Smiley

Hat is made of a small police light, two extendo candy arms, gloves & an inspector gadget badge.

This amazing trench coat was brown and picked up at a local thrift store for $10.  I did a rit dye color remover which didn't appear to do a thing.. then did a charcoal grey dye and then I got super mad because it looked dark brown or black.  A few days later I looked at it with new eyes and was happily surprised at the color.  


I accessorized the coat with several extendo arm type mechanical things and gave the kid a magnifying glass.  The hat made him easily spottable wherever we went. Smiley

Wowzers, those are some great costumes!  Love all of Gadget's gadgets (which also reminds me of Data's gear from The Goonies too).



I know what Fortnite is, but I've never played it, so when I saw the glowing eyes, I thought that was going to turn out to be a Star Wars Jawa when I saw the thumbnail image on the main page!
