i did get pictures of the boy dressed in his halloween costume, albeit a few days late. he wanted to be a gunslinger from a video game he plays. he wasn't allowed to have a gun at school (duh) so i had to get creative with the costume.
the shirt and vest came from the goodwill store. the gunslinger wore tan pants and a tan coat in the game but i thought this made a good cowboy costume. he needed belts to hold his pants up anyway, so i made a gun holster with a belt and a piece of felt cut into a holster shape. i slipped the felt onto the belt and voila - gun holster!
the felt i bought looked like hand tooled leather. bonus!
