Lucas wore his Toothless costume proudly during our mall outing for trick or treating on this soggy Seattle night. For the first time, he actually kept his entire costume on -- hood, wings and tail -- and showed them off with every "ooh" and "ahh" from the candy-dispensing retail staff. We in our Viking garb, flanking the pint-sized dragon, several mall goers asked to either take our picture or have their picture taken with us...the attention was unexpected. For future reference, get to the mall by 5 PM because by 6, the mall is packed and most stores out of candy.
Here's our toothy Toothless who had a night filled with treats!
p.s. we have a confession: we didn't make Lucas' awesome costume, as we had resorted to. Instead, at the 11th hour, I found someone on Etsy willing to turn it around in one day in order to get it to us in time to make Lucas' fantasy a reality. Thanks, Megan!
