It all started with a red puffy vest Cooper already had and a side comment from my husband about Marty McFly in late September. I've always loved Back to the Future, and love cars since I was little and grew up going to car shows with my Dad; what better way to tote my 1yr old son around on Halloween than in a transformed $25 Step2 push car I bought off of the kidsale alias at work? So, I spent a few weekends and nights in October recreating the iconic DeLorean with cardboard, tape, paint, and a little help with some EL lighting from my husband, Jeremy. The perfect costume for Cooper's first HalloweenCooper looks so happy inside his DeLorean. I hope he gets the most candy in the history of Halloween because this costume totally deserves it.
It's okay to text and drive when you're in a Back to the Future DeLorean. I wonder if Cooper is texting baby Doc Brown about how to get back to the future. Can't wait to see what Cooper dresses up as next year. The full set of pictures of Cooper's BTTF costume is here. [Flickr, Thanks Cory..
