Tah daahh! Here it is, the finished costume! A well-deserved round of applause for David B., who guessed it correctly: the character Mater from the movie Cars. As usual the costume-building took until the last possible minute (read 3 a.m. Hallowe’en morning). Jon’s school scheduled its costume parade at 11 a.m.; we had to drive it into the school separately because there’s no way it could’ve fit on the bus!

These pictures were taken late afternoon while the sun was still up so you can’t see the working running lights at the top of the cab.

What a haul!
