Little guys like cars, trucks & trains. Little guys (and big guys) in New York City tend to be a little infatuated with the subway. Living across the street from the Transit Museum doesn’t help… Because of this, every year when my wife and I ask our oldest son (now age 4): “What do you want to be this year for Halloween?”, what he hears is “What subway train so you want to be this year for Halloween?”. Last year he wanted to be the three train – this year, after much discussion, he has decided to be the seven.
So last year I eagerly spent over 80 hours (4 or 5 sleepless nights) building this custom NYC Subway Train costume for my son, and despite the fact that part of me would have easily been convinced to attempt something totally new this year, replacing the numbers and getting some sleep is a welcome change. I had intended to post the project last year, now I can do that too…
