This took longer than I expected but the smile on his face made it all more than worth while :)

So my 3 year old wasn't too pumped up about halloween.  He was having a hard time deciding what he wanted to be.  We looked at some catalogs and pics online to give him ideas but he wasn't biting.  So I explained how much fun Halloween is and that he can be "anything you want."  He thought for a couple of seconds, smiled and said "Gordon The Train!"  So be it, lol.  I figured I'd have it done in a couple hours.  Probably took me as long or longer as it takes to do a brisket on the egg but like the title says, seeing his big smile made it all worth the effort. 

This looks like a train, right?  Conception started Monday night:

    ...and next year, you could tweak it here and there, paint it black, and he could go as a Traeger!

    That's cool as heck, and will be the best costume in the neighborhood.
     
    Did you folks see that LED "stickman" someone did for their kid on the news?  That was cool too (Blue Man Group had something similar in their shows).

  • Thanks Guys!  Holepuncher (funny name) the "tender" is actually where the candy goes and when it fills up like it did last night, it gets quite heavy!  The entire costume is border line too big but hey, that's what he wanted to be.  When it got to be too much, we just took it off him and he was an engineer. :)
