Cutie Pie the Pissed Off Dragon

J borrowed my camera today so I’m sad that this moment wasn’t captured…  I decided that it was time for Cutie Pie to don his 2008 Halloween costume.  He’s going to be a dragon this year and Wildman will be a knight.  I really want to have professional portraits made of them in their Halloween giddy-ups.  It’s something I’ve done every year since Wildman was a baby.  Part of the portrait process is acclimating the children to the costumes waaaaay in advance.  Wildman was a beast about dressing up when he was younger.  Now, it’s not a big deal at all.  He’s thrilled to wear a knight’s armor and wield a sword.  Cutie Pie was fine last year when I dressed him as a lobster.

Cutie Pie not freaking out in lobster costume.

If this afternoon was any indication I’m expecting rebellion from him this year.  He was so angry about the dragon costume today.  He hated it.  He sobbed and carried on until I released him from it’s plush, green grips.  Part of the problem came from the ill-fitting dragon head.  Cutie Pie has a massive noggin so his poor head was too big for the dragon hat thingy.  When I secured the chin strap his face was all compressed and it just looked so funny!  I couldn’t help laughing.  I’m going to have to alter the costume or not attached the chin strap next time.  But not before I take a picture 🙂

    I’m a little worried about Peanut this year. She’s going to be a candycorn and is not really loving the costume. I’ve been thinking I should have her wear it around over the next few weeks so she’ll be more willing on Halloween. I love the lobster outfit.
