Halloween Costume Contest
"Lucky Leprechaun Costume"
Submitted by: kelliestender
Lucky Leprechaun is our lucky charm...our son Danny boy. With his red hair and blue eyes we knew he had to be a wee lad this year! Plus, because he is only 18 months, we knew he wouldn't want anything too cumbersome to have to wear or else he would try to escape from it!! He was comfortable and could move around as usual. He didn't even mind the hat! He knew he looked cute with that smirk on his face. And, an extra bonus is that he can wear it again for St. Paddy's Day!! It is very inexpensive to pull together and can be completed with hand-me-downs or things around the house.
