Just returned from picking up Henry at school. Here he is in his official Halloween costume. At the last minute, henry had an eleventh hour inspiration to go with more color, and felt that the flame fabric we found at JoAnn's really spoke to his inner ninja.
So we scrapped his original all black, pleather tunic that his aunt Marcia whipped up for him when my sisters were visiting earlier this month. I felt bad about ditching it, but the shoulders needed to be seriously reworked, and I figured that as long as I wasn't breaking Marcia's most important rule about dressing kids for halloween*, she would understand.
* all children clad in Halloween costumes made by Marcia must carry an plastic orange pumpkin candy bucket. no exceptions.
