These photos were all taken over a 24-hour period.  Owen has started raiding the dress-up closet, and I'm loving it.

LOOK 1:  The Astronaut Slash Jedi
                  Astronaut jumpsuit and cap, railroad engineer walkie talkie and Jedi lightsaber clipped to belt.  The overall effect?  He's one 
                       proton pack short of looking like a Ghostbuster.  
                  Type of random person most likely to speak to Owen when he's in this get-up?  Grown nerd men.  I think they hope he'll let 
                       them borrow the lightsaber.

LOOK 2:  The Stegasaurus Tail
                  Tail belted over a t-shirt J.Crew style.
                  Type of random person most likely to speak to Owen when he's in this get-up?  Fellow preschoolers and cute college girls.

LOOK 3:  Halloween 2010 Revisited
                 Last year's costume, minus the ears when in transport.  Owen was very disappointed when they wouldn't stretch over his bike 
                 Type of (not quite) random person most likely to speak to Owen when he's in this get-up?  Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker, 
                      who conveniently live 2 doors down.  (Vader and Anakin are like the holy trinity in that you can talk about them like they're 
                      separate entities, right?)

YAY! Looks like so much fun. I can't wait until he dresses himself for school and wears adorable & horrible outfits!

Love your Missoni grabs. I didn't even try. Not sure about wearing the pattern on my chubby physique, but love the mug/candle.

xoxo Hope to visit soon!!!! Maybe November???

DD does have more coming. Every time we are in a store she looks for something that might be a good Halloween costume. The funniest part is she would wear what she picks out if they came in adult sizes. In fact, a lot of times I do end up wearing some of those costumes for Halloween after she does some sewing to make them fit. Being a kindergarten principal, I have to dress the part of a kid. I can't even begin to count all of the costumes I have worn over the years. I don't have much longer to decide for this year.
