Aaaah Halloween with young boys. An excuse to dress them to your heart’s desire before they start demanding fangs, creepy costumes and lots of fake blood.
This year Little Roo donned Big Roo’s old turtle costume (because how could I let that cuteness only be witness for a total of 30 minutes like 3 years ago?)
Big Roo got a plastic sword from Grandma and only talked about being a knight from then on. So, he was a knight, although he emphatically called himself a “bad knight.” In fact, I had a hard time getting a smiling pic because he kept doing a bad knight sneer.
First… I present to you the bad knight.
The shield I made from cardboard (ok, hubby drew it and I cut it and painted it. ok, I only painted the yellow part. I DID make the handles though so naner naner.)
Giving Daddy Roo props for this one. That was one cheap, grey plastic sword until he got his hands on it. I applied some gold powder on top for a little shimmer and sealed it with Mod Podge (thanks the recommendation of Twitter peeps @2old2tap and @julialadewski).
Moving along to the turtle (who is anything but slow)…
Good God I love this costume. I mean… turtle toes? For real? CUTE.
Cuteness is magnified when you put the two together!
By the way, my friend Stacy from Kids*Stuff*World is doing a virtual Halloween costume parade this week. Go link up YOUR cute kids all dressed up!
