That's when my sister in law, Debbie, saved the day! She had this super cute little cowboy costume that fit Ezra perfectly. He happily made the switch. Because when you're 4 it's all about the candy anyway.
Hang onto your hats....
cuz this little cowboy is pretty adorable.
I mean check out his howdy ma'am face. :)
The original hat that came with the costume, however, was a little too small for him though, but no worries because it fit someone else perfectly.
Every sheriff needs a pint sized deputy, right?
And every deputy needs a stuffed horse to carry around.
The pleather was all from Joanns originally and the fringe trim is from Hobby Lobby. I just used a jacket of Sophias to make a vest costume. The skirt is a double layer circle skirt made using Dana's fabulous tutorial. The pleather makes it stiff and puffy in the best way.
It's rough terrain out in the wild.
Sometimes your chaps just plum fall off. (This shot makes me laugh every single time.)
But who cares about that when you've got legit cowboy boots?
Ezra insisted that this graduation "rope" thing is a lasso. Lasso's with tassels. He's ahead of his time.
I've been pumping Ezra full of John Wayne movies today, so he can get in his cowboy groove.
As a result, he's been saying, "Thank ya ma'am." all day.
My grandpa would've been so proud.
Sometimes, you just need a store bought (or borrowed) costume to spark a little creativity. So hi ho silver and yeee haaw! Hope you have a rootin' tootin' Halloween weekend! (I just couldn't help myself....)
