Never Never Land.

The public has spoken.

Robin Costume: NEGATIVE 1 votes. (haha, skylana.)
Dash costume: 1 vote
Train costume: 2 votes
Potato costume: 5 votes
Peter Pan costume: 13 votes!

So, Peter Pan it is! I liked what someone said about the PRACTICALITY of the Peter Pan costume... no masks or big things to get in the way of important functions like SITTING DOWN or, say, WALKING. Also, I liked what bb said about giving the kid a bow & arrow and calling him Robin Hood. (Maybe I could do that NEXT year and then not have to worry about buying another costume, eh? eh? I'll just make him watch "Robin Hood" a lot next year so he'll be excited about the recycled costume plan.) I think I might be a genius. A very cheap genius.

As for letting him decide which one he'll wear? THERE ARE PLENTY OF YEARS AHEAD FOR THAT. I'm going to dress him how I want to now while I still have the chance. Mwa ha ha ha! (evil laughter.)

Thank you all for your input! He's going to make a yum-diddly-umptious Peter Pan.

Now all I need to find is a crocodile outfit for myself and a plastic "hook hand" for the hubby.

We are going to be ridiculously awesome, is all I'm saying.

Ezra will be a darling Peter Pan! Perfect-o

I admire your forethought with the costume bit. I didn't even know how close Halloween was until Target told me.

Oh, yeah, no reason to let him pick. Before long he will insist on being something that you find annoying. I think I am going to let my 2 year old decide, but only because I have hand-me-down costumes that are both very cute.

I was totally going to vote for Peter Pan but I thought I'd be in the minority! I'm shocked! Great choice and can't wait to see it.

I love the fact that you're thinking of recycling the same costume for next year. Makes me not feel so bad about wanting to dothe same this year. If my son wears his monkey-ear hat from last year, and his new winter coat(a bomber-style from H&M) then he could easily be a monkey-pilot this year. According to my husband, I'm the only one who thinks this is a good idea. Well, happy costuming!

i wasn't in on the vote casting, but i love the idea of peter pan, just don't teach him that women are dispensable, that it's okay to leave one for another and that their sole purpose in life is to take care of boys!

sorry. i had an awakening when, at 18 I bought peter pan and watched it as an adult for the first was depressing to say the least.
