I lost count of how many adults asked, “And what are you supposed to be?”
Then they laughed as if they understood but their eyes clearly said they didn’t. A few adults didn’t even ask they just said, “That’s the biggest and most creative homemade costume of the night by far!”
The two adults who knew what he was without asking happened to be . . . darth vader, and princess leia. Go figure.
But lots of kids knew. And that made my son one happy guy. And also, one sweaty guy. But it didn’t matter because he had an entire pillowcase full of candy.
We posted the beginning steps on the costume, here. Wire, duct tape, and a destroyed backpack were also utilized.
