Costumes for my Sweet Nephew

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.

 

I have some videos, shot with a very very old camera…

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.
