fall kcw: day three, four, and five

We love Richard Scarry books over here.
We own quite a few and the ones we don't own are on constant check out from the library.

So it was only right that Mae picked a Richard Scarry knight for Halloween.
Ha. Still makes me laugh.

This book was his first introduction to knights and he loved that they were brave.
He picked this specific knight and was insistent for that pineapple.
Used Made by Rae Flashback Skinny Tee and cut the back up the middle and added velcro for easy dressing. The hood is from the Bimaa Sweater and is separate from the top. The pants are self drafted as well as the breast plate. I used a grey fleece, chosen by Mae, for the entire look which made it a pretty quick and easy project because I didn't have to finish seams.

Love that at four years old this kid wants nothing more than to rock a pineapple on his head.
Can only hope he will keep his quirkiness as he gets older.


  1. I LOVE this! Those sleeves are amazing and the whole thing is so fun!

  2. hahaha. this makes me laugh every time. I love you, Maeson.
    wonder if max will keep his black widow costume on long enough for me to photograph it...??

  3. Love the sleeves and the pineapple is awesome.

  4. What a fun and unique costume! The armor is so clever. My daughter is a big Richard Scarry fan so I'll need to search that book out.

  5. This is so great. Richard Scarry illustrations are pretty inspirational. Nice job!

  6. Awesome costume! You did a great job with all the little details. I love the pineapple on his head, 4 year olds are so quaint and quirky at times!

  7. That is the coolest costume ever! Awesome job :)
