All Treats, No Tricks

Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!
To infinity and beyond!
David and I were having no luck finding a complete Buzz Lightyear costume to go with the wing pack we found him.  We were ready to give up when we went into the Disney store.  They had some..but not in his size.  David's eyes settled on pajamas, Buzz Lightyear pajamas. My eyes settled on the price tag-$10.00!  We both got that look in our eyes and bought him one size too big, so we could put a sweatsuit and some shoulder pads on underneath to "bulk him up a bit" and the cutest costume on Greenwood Ave. was born!  We cut up an old beanie from the 99cents store and made that his helmet.  He wore his ski boots and motorcycle gloves.  Costume complete!
We went up and down our streets and also passed out candy to more trick-or-treaters than I have ever seen in our neighborhood.
His open wing pack from the back.  He was a huge hit, walking up and down our streets, and he was not fearful of anything scary like he was last year.  His Godfather, Daniel, also flew him around the neighborhood and front yard in his arms and that really made Salvatore's day!
Sweet little butterfly girl granting wishes at the front door.

For walking the streets, we put her in this little reindeer costume.  Her wings would not fit in the Snugli!


  1. shalimar, you and david are so resourceful and creative to put sal's costume together like that! and valentina is darling as the butterfly and reindeer!

  2. Molly loved this! Toy Story AND Salvatore? Its like a dream for her. Her two favorite super friends!

  3. Good job mommy and daddy! Way to make Salvatore's dream come true. I am sure it will be the first of many times you do that for him! He looked great. And of course Valentina was the sweetest little thing ever:)
