Jack, Jack in the Box costume,how-to

My son as “Jack”!

This was our favorite costume ever.  My husband, son, and I worked for days on it, and it was so worth it!  When he walked on the playground, jaws dropped, literally.  After school I took him to the Jack-in-the-Box restaurant, and he leaned over and the cashier just gasped, laughed and called the manager over!

It is easy to join in! Just take your picture and post it on your blog, with the button above and link up on Eighty MPH Mom. Make sure you visit the other participants to see what they have found in their neighborhood {or house or wherever} recently! Don’t worry if you didn’t have a chance to take a walk over the weekend to snap the perfect shot. If you already have a picture that fits into the “assignment” of the week, feel free to use it. If you want to write down the upcoming assignments and take photos for several of them while you are on a walk, you can do that too! There really aren’t many rules, except to stick with the theme of the week and be creative! You can even post more than one photo if you so desire.

I would be most appreciative if you could help me spread the word by tweeting, posting about it on your Facebook wall, posting on your blog, or whatever else you can think of. You can copy and paste this tweet if you’d like:

  1. Yes I totally LOVE this costume!!!!!! OMG i would die laughing if I saw this in person. And going to Jack in the Box? GENIUS! I’m surprised you didn’t get free food. Hahaha

      Well that was our hope lol. The manager did give us this really cool laminated “Jack” sign with a big picture of Jack.

  2. That is a great costume! The only one I personally have ever made for any of my children was a “road” costume for my youngest last year. He didn’t want to dress up at all, but he eventually agreed to dress up if he could be a road LOL.

  3. That’s really a great costume! A few years ago a little boy about 5 yrs old came to our door dressed as Jack and he was wearing a tiny little suit…overall just SO adorable. And his mom told she made the head too…
