How about some pictures today?
I just found out through Melissa's blog about an online costume contest, and I thought--why not? I was meaning to post a bunch of pictures of Jake in costume anyway.
First up, Jake as a rap artist:
(Yeah, I know I've posted this one before, but I have to do it again. And yes, that is my YW medallion. What else was I gonna do with it? Wear it?)
Or if pirates are more your thing, but you're tired of seeing kids dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow...
...how about this? Ever seen a kid dressed up as a treasure chest yet?
I really like this one, though I think the picture would have been better if somehow I'd managed to get him to swing on a vine:
And here is one of my very first sewing experiments (I am by no means a seamstress--heavens, no! but I found I could thread a needle and stick in in cloth with a desireable result):
Oh, and I can't leave out the cat. Not my wonderful, super cat:
Another sewing experiment:
I wanted to dress Jake up as Draco Malfoy.
Everything worked pretty well except his hair, which, to my dismay, I found would NOT slick back no matter what I put in it:
No sewing on this one at all:
And last, Jake as a traffic light:
And yeah, it does light up. Those are tap-lights in there, so he can turn 'em on and off himself. Best part? NO SEWING. Just a glue gun, felt, and scissors. That's my kind of costume!
