Evin's Heatwave Costume

One night at dinner we asked Evin what he wanted to be for Halloween.....after we all thought that we was saying something terrible that I can't even type, we finally figured out he wanted to be Heatwave from Rescuebots (a transformer spin off).  

The challenge began.  My mom had always made our costumes growing up....I felt it was only right to continue the legacy.  

I started with a red and black zip up Reebok jacket.  

Then I added wheels from a goodwill toy.  

Using battery operated Christmas lights I was able to figure out how to make his gloves light up.  

Problem was....he HATED it!  There had been too much trying on and taking off during the process, I bought hockey shoulder pads that he hated and the gloves made his crazy.  

So when the day came to go to Arvada's Trick or Treat Street we started slow and subtle.  I put on the pants and a red long sleeve.  He wanted to go outside and play so we put on his jacket and acted like it was a normal sweatshirt and then I put on his boots for him.  

When we got outside we saw the neighbor Tru (4yrs old) who I used to convince Evin to try on the gloves and the hat.  Once we arrive at Trick or Treat street he let us use sticky velcro to attach the cardboard ladder dad made.  

And we were off!

We met up with Tru and filled our buckets
