Well it’s that time of year again and my darling boy once again made a special costume request of his Mama. This year my wild 6 year old decided he wanted to be a Rotten Rocker (also referred to as a Dead Rock Star) for Halloween. After all of the Rocktacular Birthday Bash hoopla I wasn’t surprised by his request but I was stumped as to what exactly it was that he wanted. Quite a bit of time was spent searching the Internet trying to determine what his vision was and it seemed that it was somewhere between Beetle Juice and Punk so I did my absolute best to fulfill his vivid imaginings and came up with this skullorific vision:
You are probably wondering why Halloween came a few days early this year? Well, to be honest, I wanted to shoot the costume while it was still fresh and when we could take the time to get good photos instead of snapping rushed pictures at Caden’s various chaotic Halloween events. Caden will have two Halloween parties tomorrow, as well as a multitude of Halloween events to go to on Saturday. I am sure there will be lots of playing and running around (ADD sugar) and I doubt that my questionable sewing techniques will hold up to much of the inevitable wear and tear. Whatever the case, having our little pre-Halloween Cemetery photo shoot this afternoon extended Caden’s much loved holiday experience by yet another day. He had an absolute blast and really got into the part. By the way – that’s the *Rocker* face! My little 6 year old totally thinks he is a Bad Ass! What can I say? Hilarious! He LOVES the camera and I really enjoyed seeing my creation in action. It was a great time for us both! :)
