I mentioned on the Bun Toons last week that my ten year old daughter, Kate, was working on her Wonder Woman costume, and she insisted it had to have the Golden Age look to it, with the long pants and the golden eagle, etc.
There we go.
The pants are a teensy bit longer than the originals, mostly to combat a Canadian Halloween, and we decided on nothing off the shoulder for a ten year old in the cold, but the costume scored big with out daughter. Her mother Keiren did most of the work on this wonderful custom job, I just drew in part of the bird.
But the costume wasn’t the HALF the fun for our Golden Age Wonder Woman…
It was the honour guard that accompanied her.
Steve Trevor, Steve Rogers, and a gumshoe up to no good in a city that’s got friends in all the wrong places.
Those are her brothers Sean (as the flyboy that looks suspiciously like MacArthur), Taylor (as the two bit cop with a chip on his badge) and their friend Josh (as the proud infantry man ready to mix it up).
The whole 1940s effect was pretty darn cool, if I might say so myself, and as they went from house to house, they got a lovely reaction.
Who says this isn’t the Golden Age of Halloween Photos?
Our eldest son, Kellam and our daughter in law, Jessica came over and brought fantastic Halloween cakes and cookies that looked like pumpkins and ghosts.
Beat THAT, Christmas! You Suck. Halloween ROCKS.
Ty the Guy OUT!!!
Here now, your BONUS Templeton-Smith Halloween Moment:
Great costumes, I don’t envy any kids dressed like Hitler tonight.
And like all capitalist countries, we will all change our tunes and be more positive about XMas in about 30 days… But, you keep the “Halloween cheer” by imagining that Santa wears red to more easily hide the blood-splatter stains…
Your daughter looks great and so do the boys!
Thanks for sharing these photos Ty!
