With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd share our Mater costume.  I never had a chance to blog about it last year (as you can see, I haven't been blogging in almost a year!).  But we are still very proud of this costume!!  So I wanted to share with you guys!

My husband made this costume from pieces of cardboard and foam that he measured and cut out.  He went above and beyond, and worked really hard.  and we couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.

The wheels turn. There are "mirrors", and a tow hook!  and I love the eyes.  But I think my favorite part is Mater's teeth.  What's your favorite part?

When we asked G what he wanted to be this year, he asked to be Mater again.  We couldn't pass up on that opportunity!  We love the costume and want to get as much wear out of it as possible.  He has since kind of waivered back and forth a bit, but I think my husband has convinced him once and for all.  He still fits into it, and he still loves Mater.  So that's a win!  My husband wants to add a few extra details - like working lights - to give it something new.  G is excited about the lights!

Now we just have to figure out a costume for Miss L...

Happy Halloween!
