The Barr costume heritage continues

Laurel made this costume, which won Kahurangi second place in the Westview Halloween parade.

He was also a hit when they went Trick or Treating in Eerie. Even though he did walk up to the door yell knock knock, trick or treat (pronounced ti feet), then run into people’s houses to try and hug their pets. 

Laurel made the costume with a tapestry needle, double sided tape and a hotel sewing kit. Having an artist for a mother is both a blessing and a curse. The reason why he went as a ketchup bottle was he was obsessed by the fact every table in every restaurant in the US has ketchup on it. Also Kahurangi’s great great grandfather invented the twist cap which he sold to Heinz, and it’s still in use.

  1. Awwwww…. cute costume.

    Liam knocked on the door, asked for candy and then asked for some more after he was given some. And when people asked what he was – he said, “I’m Liam”. Tho he was Bob the Builder. lol

  2. Love the costume! I am thinking about making one for my daughter to wear for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. How did you make it? How did you get you make the label and get it to stay? Awesome job!
