The Costumes Beginneth

Buster has decided that he wants to be Bowser, a character from Mario Brothers games, for Halloween.  He's a kind of turtle-dragon type creature who turns out to be a bad guy.  So why Bowser?  Not sure.  Maybe the turtle-ness is reminiscent of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

In any case, I went to the fabric store today to pick up some green for the shell, and other material for the spikes.  I also ordered a yellow long sleeve shirt and yellow sweatpants for him to wear as the main body.

Here's the shirt.  Take a look at the lower right corner of the ordering page.  Closeup:

Thanks to Amazon's ordering algorithms, we know that this yellow shirt is "Frequently Bought Together" with blue overalls and a GRU logo decal.  Folks are makin' Minions!
