Hallowe’en 2011: All is revealed!

Laura Ta-daaah, here it is officially: Jon’s Hallowe’en 2011 costume!

(Links to past costumes: 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004)

The Tyrannosaurus rex was, like all of Jon’s previous costumes, picked by him alone. He was very clear that he wanted a “realistic” T. rex dinosaur, and not the character Rex from Toy Story (even though he had been bubbling over with delight for weeks over the Toy Story 3 Blu-ray disk he got for his birthday.)

The blue thing is Jon’s hallowe’en candy sack; not part of the costume.

Note that the T. rex‘s legs moved with the wheels—a cunning bit of engineering by Peter, but alas, prone to breakage.

Note the teeny-weeny arms.

And the nasty, yucky teeth. Ewwwww, gingivitis!

Okay, not a great pic of Jon, but a nice front view of the costume!

    Once again, a great costume designed by two loving and talented parents. You look fabulous, Jon.

    Awesome job. I like the legs hanging down on the side and the small arms in front. Jon always has great ideas for what he wants to be each year and you two execute it perfectly every time!

    Fantastic! Especially love the tiny arms :)

    @paul: No leg action video, alas–I took one outside, but by then it was too dark to see much. And we couldn’t re-create it when we got back home because the leg broke. So you only have our word that, for a few glorious minutes, T. rex walked!
