Super Sweet Airplane Costume

Our friends Ingrid and Nick Dragotta of Howtoons sent me photos of their son Leo’s Halloween costume. He wanted to be a plane this year, so they got him a little bomber jacket and hat, and built the plane out of cardboard. The gauge is actually a cut-open peanut butter jar that has a bag attached with a rubber band. Open up the lid to drop the candy in. Clever and adorable!

I also really appreciate that they left the box’s original printed material visible. Hooray for recycled homemade costumes!
