This was actually the first idea… Halfway through trick or treating it was driving him crazy on his head so we ran home and I cut a head hole and new arm holes. The old arm holes became eyes.

Mckenna got a little annoyed at the attention he was getting… especially because this might have been her last trick or treating year.
