Jack’s fascination with transportation left his parents in a difficult situation. Are front-loaders sold at costume shops? WW1 fighter planes?
My mother used to sew our costumes, but who does that anymore? Well, you don’t necessarily have to… These creative parents decided to BUILD them. Cardboard is easily found, but as Jack’s parents concluded, making correct armholes so that Jack could maneuver his candy-gathering was of utmost importance.
Way to go Jack for being relentless in your costume dreams! … and he’s only 6! Perhaps the fact that Jack’s dad worked for the MTA had something to do with it?
By the way, these costumes even articulate! I’m so excited to see this year’s costume: The Intrepid!
