It all started with a red puffy vest Cooper already had and a side comment from my husband about Marty McFly in late September. I’ve always loved Back to the Future, and love cars since I was little and grew up going to car shows with my Dad; what better way to tote my 1yr old son around on Halloween than in a transformed $25 Step2 push car I bought off of the kidsale alias at work? So, I spent a few weekends and nights in October recreating the iconic DeLorean with cardboard, tape, paint, and a little help with some EL lighting from my husband, Jeremy. The perfect costume for Cooper’s first Halloween!

What's funny is that I hated Halloween as a child, primarily because I was shy and never wanted to draw attention to myself (if you haven't noticed I have since stopped caring about this ;)). So while I have always loved creating things I actually remember being a 'boy' for 5 years in a row, wearing my brother's clothes and a hat to school. If you want to not stand out on Halloween, dress as a 'kid' ;) Now I can live vicariously through my son, making him an epic costume each year :)

I love that he is wearing his "life preserver." That is attention to detail.
great idea. isn't 88mph kinda fast for a stroller though? ; )

I love it, and it looks great. Halloween takes on a whole new dimension once you have kids. The only problem is trying to figure out how to out-do yourself next year!
