This costume was a family labor of love. Dad, Mom and even Grandma had a hand in creating these characters. The Kevin costume was the most time consuming with the head made out of pool noodles, maskng tape, felt and chicken wire. Biggest regret was the house was actually made of wood (my husband insisted on authenticity) but it, of course, was a heavy undertaking for my nine year old daughter. Cardboard would have been sufficient but like a true champ, she never complained. So Fun!
