Larrrry Boy!

Have you ever heard of Veggie Tales? Don't feel bad if you haven't, it's not super popular. However, in our house, Larry Boy is king. Larry Boy is a super hero from Veggie Tales. And he's a cucumber. And Luke absolutely loves him. 

So naturally, that's what he wanted to be for Halloween. And I wasn't about to spend $40 on a costume. So I needed to get my kid to look like this without breaking the bank:

The plungers were going to be a challenge. Well, basically the whole hat-thing in general. I made the outfit (minus the hat) in one afternoon. I fretted about what to do for his head for a couple of days. We bought two mini plungers at Lowe's but they're still pretty heavy and I didn't know how I could get them to stay up.


So I admit it. I caved and bought one. For $10. It was so worth it. Here's the end result:

Aren't my children so sweet?
We were at a Trunk or Treat on Saturday night and if my hubby had just lifted the camera up a little, he could have shown off the whole trunk. I had an orange and black banner with bats hanging from it. It was pretty cute. As you can see, I also incorporated polka dots and, of course, the lovely cobwebs.

  1. What a great mama you are. The costume is absolutely darling as is your little Veggie Tale, Larry Boy. Love that you also decorated the car. I'm not worthy. :) Thanks so much for linking up to Motivated Monday at BeColorful. I love seeing what you pull together.
