If he only had a leftover.

The pics are fantastic but I swear it’s the tag lines that are making me laugh so hard that my belly aches….then there are the comments…it’s too much! Who needs prozac when you’ve got this!?
so true what you said, i just laughed so hard a little bit of pee came out
Glad to see I’m not the only one!
Actually it looks more like the dryer was trying to eat him!
very creative… and resourceful
Actually, this is just cool.
Is that an over-sized sardine can he’s wearing?!
I also wanted everyone to know that I was a robot NOT a tinman!!! And Peter Pan has a black eye because he was always fighting with the lost boys!!!
I hate to admit this but I made a martian costume for my son when he was 3 and I though I was really being creative… looking back on it… nah… maybe I should submit it — he was the only kid with a homemade costume — all the others were fairy princesses, and marvel characters…
I am saddened that everyone thought that I was a boy!!! But I believe that NO ONE can say that anyone else had the same costume that year!! I looked awesome!!!
I am going through my old albums now……..
Actually…the tin man is a GIRL. haha
Why does the little boy have a black eye? ???
Well, let’s just pray that there’s no electrical storms in the forcast for Halloween night……
fan of Ed Woods, are we?
Honey? Where is the dryer hose?
Is the littlest one supposed to be the Jolly Green Giant?
What is the small fellow supposed to be? He has a Kermit the Frog collar going on, but I’m unsure about the rest of the ensemble.
“Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!”
because mom and dad splurged on the other 2 costumes johnny had to make due with tin foil, dryer ducts, and Turkey pans…
That little guy looks EXACTLY like my son! I think it’s adorable! (Despite what his brother’s wearing) Is he supposed to be Peter Pan or the Jolly Green Giant? Kermit the frog, after he pissed off the wrong pig? Anyhow, it’s cute.
Robots, small elves, and ill witches! OH MY!
Why is his face blue?>
Clever! I love it!
That. Is. Awesome!
The little voices told me that this is the correct use of tinfoil to prevent being taken over!
Since when did the a shiner become a standard part of the munchkin outfit?
I’m also confused by what he’s holding…umbrella? swoed? staff?…hmm
“swoed” Sorry, but THAT is freakin hilarious.
That’s a munchkin? Well, that makes more sense. I thought that was Peter Pan, and I was seriously confused.
Peter Pan with a black eye from that sassy Tinkerbell.
Oh…I kinda thought he might be Yoda.
I think the small boy is supposed to be Zelda. He has a sword with him…don’t know why he has a black eye though.
Probably blinded by the regulation size casserole tinfoil, and ran into a doorknob.
I’d hope he’s not trying ot be Zelda, because he’s doing a poor job of it… since she’s got long hair and wears a dress…
The witch in the corner looks ready to attack.
I’ve never seen a truer representation of a heart-on.
I think they put the casserole dish on upside-down…or they have a demented sense of humor!
LoL! – My thoughts exactly!
That was BOL funny.
What’s that red blotch?
the mom couldn’t find a heart so the tin man got a new kidney!
Oh *right*. I completely forgot about the story.
This is what dressing up is supposed to be about. Not £100 outfits from the high street, as is reputedly the more popular option amongst middle class parents in the UK.
I’m so with you! LOVE the costumes! Home made costumes are the best! So thoughtful and creative…and original! I bet there weren’t 50 other kids with the exact same costume!
And I am unsure why his heart is… not where a heart should be.
Yeah, what is that anyway? A tomato? Any why there?
And, why so blue??? (His face, not the tomato!)
At least you didn’t say purple…
I think he put his front casserole dish on upside down. The heart would be better placed the other way…if it IS indeed a heart!
I think they tied the support strings on the wrong end of the tray.
Heck, I was going to say that that someone took the term “the only way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” too seriously.
My God, is that a collander on his head too? It looks like two strands of spaghetti escaped somewhere between here and Mars.
Cute and creative!
This brings back memories of homemade costumes from my youth. Mom would look around the house to see what she had, then she’d make up a costume to fit the supplies.
Marney would be appalled!!! Not only is that caserole dish not regulation, it is being completely mis-used…and neery a serving spoon in sight!
hahahahahaha Marney! Well played.
“And I told you to use a plastic lid, NOT TINFOIL!”
