I just found a bunch of pictures from last Halloween - Because we decided it would be epic if my darling boy dressed up like the Cap'n, I ended up working until the very last second making it happen. I (painstakingly) made his shirt, coat, cape and boot covers, and tore apart and redid a hat from the costume shop. The jeans were his because my version of pirate pants wasn't going to fly. It wasn't totally authentic and I ran out of time to finish hemming the bottom of the coat, but we still won a costume contest and enjoyed drinks on the house ;). Anyways - I had forgotten about this and wanted to share my creation, as I'm working on "epic costumes 2010" right now. :)
