Captain Pumpkinsword


Captain Pumpkin Sword

Here is Muffin Man after a hard evening's work trick-or-treating.

He went as Captain Feathersword, with a concert-bought hat and sword (which he decided against carrying, in favor of his pumpkin bucket o' candy and his pumkin flashlight, hence the title of this post). The rest of his costume is made up of blue pants, white shirt (both courtesy The Gap) and a red quilted vest complete with yellow electrician's tape cut to resemble the Captain's Magic Buttons (he's got half-a-dozen).

This was only MM's second year trick-or-treating, but he was already leaving us behind at the curb and going off by himself to ring the door bell and shout "Trick-or-Treat!!!!" loudly enough for us to hear from the mail-boxes at the end of the drive-ways. I got so choaked up, my little boy is not so little anymore. After a few houses, I actually left him with his dad and went back to the house to greet the other neighborhood children.

When MM got tired, he came back to help give out candy, two to a customer. He took his job so seriously!!!

Halloween is definitely one of his top two favorite holidays!

Too freakin' cute! DPT wants to be a pirate next year, at least right now. Thanks for the great ideas.

He is so cute!

Sounds like a lot of fun, but I am sorry that it was so hard on your emotions.

SOoooooo adorable!

My musketeer had me hold his sword most of the time, too, so he could carry his pumpkin bag and have a hand free.
