Mason proudly modeling his Newsie costume.
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Michaela, the 'Newsie' costume creator:
Our 6 year old loved seeing the musical Newsies last spring when the Broadway tour was in town. He knows every song from the show. Finding clothing that resembled clothes from 1899 was a challenge that lead us to several thrift stores. I bought canvas fabric and made his bag. The cap is from the souvenier shop from when we saw the show. The shoes were the hardest thing to find, but we were lucky enough to get those on eBay. The newspaper is made of fabric with the headlines printed with a fabric marker (we were afraid paper wouldn't last long). Mason likes that there is a lot of room in his newspaper bag to fill with candy.
