My nephew is a spectacular soul (both of them are, in fact, but this is about Nick the Mighty).
2007: Easter Island Head
Simple foam construction, pretty straight forward.
Nick always has the best ideas for costumes, and this year was no exception. My sister Genny and I met and figured it out.
2008: Praying Mantis
This was with a different type of foam, very hard to color. I found this primo sheet of packing foam in the trash at my office building and it just sort of went from there. Genny and I met halfway in a hotel in Pennsylvania and proceeded to delight the staff with the whole shebang.
