N.Lo did like his costume, and after awhile even consented to wearing the bandana. The black, white and red, along with the hat, happen to photograph well, if I do say so myself. (I may be biased.) The second half of these photos are from the Jones Company—thanks!


“No! I want blah blah blah!” That’s all I hear when the whine switch turns on, is blah blah blah. Oh wait, I remember now—I thought he said, “I want picture!” because I had just taken K.Lo’s picture. But it was, “No picture! I want PRETZELS.”

Between the hat and the shirt, the costume strikes me as distinctly 50s, or older, so I turned on the B&W, just for effect.


Varying angles to capture the full effect of the costume.

The Jones Company was on the same wavelength with the sepia? Except instead of 50s dress-up costume, think Western!

Love these angles.


Off into the woods I go!


And I also love the original caption for this photo, which was, “Even cowboys need their mommas.” Aww. Indeed.

    Again, fabulous job with the vest. It definitely helps make the costume, and I love that it's an old t-shirt!

    Wait, you MADE that vest? Sigh.

    (Hanging head in shame)

    We bought Ben's costume for $20 at the horrible Halloween store in the Town Square Mall. :-/

    Thanks! Beth, no shame in buying costumes! No shame at all! The vest took maybe 1/2 an hour to make. Everything else was bought.

    Aside from the fact that you have a 2-month old and toddler. ;)
