I love making Ransom’s Halloween costumes, all three years so far. This year’s was super easy and quick, just like the last few years. I almost dressed him as a garden gnome, because really, how cute are those little boys:
Everybody say “AAAAAAWWW”. But no, I went another direction, knowing full well there’s no way 3-year-old Ransom will be a garden gnome either.. oh well. Anyway, my other idea was also pretty cute and a bit more appropriate as I have a kid who 1) loves to be naked and 2) has white hair and 3) already yells “Bam Bam Bam” all the time. (Its the sound a hammer makes, duh.)
And, besides that, I already had almost everything I needed, save the orange fur and the brown belt. I picked up 1/4 yard of fur from Hancock’s for $2.50 and a belt from Goodwill for $1. So, yay for bargain costumes.
Ransom already an orange baseball cap and orange gym shorts, and a purple bone. And Camp Johnson provided us with a perfectly shaped cypress knee as Bamm-Bamm’s club and a can of white spray paint. I sewed a strip of fur to the top edge of the shorts, and then of course cut out little triangles from the bottom edge. Covering the baseball hat was easy too, just a hodge podge of sewing and hot glue. I have to say, faux fur is very forgiving to work with. And all those years of OM and cat costumes finally paid off.
Black cat photo bomb on Halloween – how appropriate!
And now, welcome to Thanksgiving season folks! I’ll be back on Monday with a post about the other project that’s been taking up all my “30×30” list time. Its done but not delivered yet. Yaba daba doo!
