“I…Am…That…HERO!!!!” October 31, 2008

Filed under: Fun,Jack Stories — Michelle @ 11:00 pm

This was our first year to really get into creating a Halloween costume.  What made it exciting was that Jack totally thought of who he wanted to be (Larry Boy…Veggie Tales’ Larry the Cucumber’s secret superhero identity), and stuck with it, leaving Ryan and I to come up with a way to make it happen!  Fortunately, I am blessed with a ninja for a husband, hence the amazing plunger helmet.  🙂  Someday, I will own a sewing machine AND become at least somewhat proficient in using it.  But until then, I did what I could with…a glue gun.  And, my amazingly proficient mom made the cape.  We had so much fun working together to create this costume.

This picture is so you can fully appreciate the glory of the helmet  🙂


And of course, a serious pose…complete with the mask.  “Bumblyburg needs a hero…I…AM…THAT…HERO!!!!”


Because I know you are all wondering, yes…the helmet WAS heavy…and no, he did not wear it for very long.  But Jack loved his Larry Boy costume tonight.  And that made it all worth it.  🙂
