At first, Lucas said he wanted to dress up as Batman, "so I can go get candy." He told me that Jackson had to be Robin, "so we can go fight bad guys." Then he was introduced to the "Aventures" (Avengers) and decided he wanted to be Captain America. After that, he didn't care what I dressed Jack up as. I figured Superman would be an easy enough costume to make.
|At Halloween at the Y a couple weeks before|
Shirt... a slightly large child's Under Armor shirt with batting folded and sewn underneath for muscles, and felt hot-glued on the front.
Pants... I found workout pants in navy blue with silver stripes down the side.
Mask... I made it from a blue fleece blanket, but he has a big head... I misjudged size :)
Shield... a wicker paper plate holder thing (you know what I'm talking about, right?). I just hot-glued felt to the front and back. The back actually had a compartment to hold candy.
Top... I cut and pieced together a blue onesie and a red onesie. The Superman logo was freehand cut from felt and hot-glued on the front. This Frankensteined onesie is snapped over the pants.
Cape... a red piece of felt hotglued to the shoulders.
|One house had small apples mixed into the candy... Lucas picked out 3 apples and left the candy... ???|
I generally don't let him have more than a couple of pieces that night, and he averages 2-3 pieces of candy per week... I just don't bring it up, and he frequently forgets about it... (mean mommy). Do you ration the candy? Or do you let them get their fill in the first couple days?
