Hot Box Halloween

From the moment I first saw Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox, I began seeding the idea of my son being the character Ash as "White Cape" for Halloween. The Kyality Kid agreed, but only if he could have the bandit hat "with the stars, not the one made out of a sock." Duh. Click here to enlarge.

I mentioned this to his crafty auntie at Team Boo over the summer and she actually did the dirty work for us and made an amazing bandit hat that was delivered as a sweet b-day present last month. So enjoy the ultimate Fantastic Mr. Fox Halloween costume!

Remember, it's the pull back that matters.

Those "cussing" ears made me want to scream. Glad he's still feeling it ;)

Props to anybody that can get their child to dress up as anything other than a licensed character.

It's truly an awesome costume.

So we did the trick-or-treat thing last night and no one knew who "Ash from Fantastic Mr. Fox" was. It also didn't seem to matter much when I told him, "My Tweeps all thought it was cool!" Oh well.

Awesome costume idea! I'm hoping that I can one day "convince" any child of mine to dress up as something other than your typical licensed character.
