RoRo Loves the Statue of Liberty
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Terri, the 'Statue of Liberty' costume creator:
RoRo is 6.25 yrs old and loves the SOL so much that we drove to see her last spring break. He is half Afghan. His dad fled in the 80s when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, so welcoming immigrants is meaningful to us. In this divisive election, we want to remind Americans to be loving, welcoming, helpful, and inclusive. Ro is also comfortable with bending rigid, traditional gender rules, so dressing up as the SOL made perfect sense to him and he beams proud in this costume. Not counting the sneakers and long johns, which can be used beyond Halloween, the whole thing costs about $7 (material, visor, gloves, felt) and includes a lot of stuff I had around the house (scotch tape, glue, string, electrical tape, letters, sharpie marker, cardboard, thread, eyeshadow, staples, socks, graham cracker box, flashlight, zip ties).
