Here was the inspiration for John’s pumpkin this year:
And here’s the real deal:
He decided at the last minute to go for disgusting instead of steampunky. The close-up reminds me how glad I am that he’s old enough to scoop the guts out of his own pumpkin – BLEH!
And his costume. His original plan was insane asylum escapee, and he’d already cut the sleeves of one of my old lab coats to sew onto another to make a straight jacket when he decided to change directions. He dressed as a nerd. Yes, that is a fanny pack.
I’m linking up to Capture the Everyday at Adventuroo for the “Halloween Close-Ups” prompt, as well as to Oh, How Pinteresting, and The 52 Weeks of Pinterest Challenge
