Campbell doesn’t really like costumes.
Heck, he doesn’t even like clothes (basketball shorts excluded…it’s that Asperger’s/SPD thing).
Halloweens in the past have involved him screaming and freaking out because he HATES whatever he’s wearing. I think he could be dipped in battery acid and it’d cause less commotion.
So, when he actually came up with a costume idea that he was excited about, I ran with it. Even if the requested costume WAS Santa.
I traced a pair of pajamas for the pants and then cropped them and added fur.
I traced one of his older brother’s church shirts for the jacket, and then added fur.
The belt is a dollar store picture frame spray painted gold. Then I hot glued the end of the belt vinyl to the picture frame back and slid it into the frame and glued that in place, too. It closes with velcro.
And, for the very first time ever?
I have a kid who’s happy on Halloween!
