This has been a day of pretty good news so far. First, my youngest son may be coming home from the hospital in time to trick or treat afterall! Today he seemed very much himself, and the doctors seem to think that he can come home soon. Yaaaaaay! 😀
And some news of lesser magnitude is the completion of the Inuyasha costume for my oldest son in time for Halloween. What he didn’t tell me until last night was that he was hoping to win best costume in the afterschool program he goes to. I certainly wasn’t thinking about any competitions while I was working on it! Anyway, he’s pretty pleased with the results, so I took some pictures this morning to share with my wife and his younger brother and now I’ll share them here as well.
It could still use some tuning up, but so far everyone who’s seen the pictures has had a favorable reaction, including the mostly costumed staff at the children’s hospital who have been fantastic! Oh so much drama over the last few days… Anyway, on to the pictures!
Oh yeah! He made the ears, the Tetsusaiga, and the necklace. This little guy was also the one who was the spiritual spark that ignited my costume making and my own entry into cosplay! I love the way he thinks too. It was his idea to use Inuyasha plushie dolls to solve some of the design problems I ran into making the costume, genius, pure genius!
