The Show

 I set Malea down to take a picture and Kaidrei came to sit right next to her and give her a hug. It looked like they were waiting for a show...and what show was that you might ask...the big reveal of Daddy's Halloween costume!

For those who don't recognize it, he is an Aquabat (which is a band). Here is a picture to compare - the color of the shirts change occasionally but you get the basic idea.

I have to admit I'm pretty proud of it. I made used freezer paper to stencil the shirt and belt and sewed the skull cap, goggles, and belt.

It was a fun undertaking and I sure hope that people recognize it at his work party tomorrow. Last year they didn't even get that he was dressed up when he went as Captain Hammer (from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog). This year he got the award for the most realistic costume! He didn't get the grand prize (which was a $25 gift card), but I don't feel too bad since Mark won and his wife (a retired broadway costumer) made his Mad Hatter costume - and it was truly amazing!

  1. I'm impressed!! You are SOOO talented! And Brian looks like one of the band!
    I think they should disqualify the winner of the office contest. That is totally unfair with a professional for a wife! How does anyone else have a chance?
    any pictures of the girls costumes?
