Your Childs Best Halloween

Alright, so here is the costume that I guarantee will make your child's Halloween totally unforgettable!  My son Adam wanted to be R2D2 a couple years ago, and I wasn't really thrilled with the store bought costumes so I decided to make my own.  I did some research online, and took a little bit of ideas from all the R2D2 costumes I saw.  I bought a garbage can and sawed out holes for the arms.  I then used duct tape and blue tape to go around the holes, and taped down the flippy thing where trash went.  I also bought some blue foam for decorating along with a black marker for some design.  I got some lights to make it pow! 
Adam wore this costume and was a complete hit!  I even took him to the Prudential mall in Boston for an early trick or treating showoff, and let me tell you everyone in the mall was pointing and mentioning how much they loved it.  He was even waving at people.  He will never forget it.  Adam wants to do it again, but I think we need to move on.  Here are some pics.  The lights don't show up very well in the pictures, but they seriously made the costume.

Adam was R2D2 two years in a row.  I was of course Darth Vader.  Adam and I have done a lot of theme Halloweens together.
Adam: Scooby Doo
Me: Thelma
Adam: Thomas the Train
Me: Sir Topin Hat
And of course our Star Wars theme
This year we may have another good one.  I will show pics when complete.
