I saw a photo on Pinterest of a baby Mr. T costume and it was so cute and so funny that I had to give it a try!
My baby, Sammy, is 8 1/2 months old and the youngest of 4 boys. So this was going to be fun (and funny)!
I started out by making a basic hood out of an old t-shirt from the thrift store. It was too tight. So I had to open up the back seam and add a piece. While it was open, I thought he looked like an Ewok. (Next year...)
Nothing like framing a chubby little face. Look at those cheeks!
Surprisingly, once the hood was on, he didn't mind it too much.
|So, here Sammy is, with his bling and camo shirt! |
(Looking a bit more like an Amish punk.)
|But, several people were able to tell right away that he was Mr. T and that drew some good laughs!|
After all, to me, Halloween should be about good laughs not grimaces and cringing from gory costumes. I really don't like grotesque costumes.
|Caleb (age 9) wanted to be a werewolf. Well, perhaps I'll respect his dignity and just say the face makeup my husband did was so realistic and amazing that Caleb worried about being teased, so his costume downgraded to Hobo. Ha!|
