Cranky the Crane
My husband Arsenio created these two costumes for himself and our son, Egon, to wear for Halloween. Egon’s a big Thomas fan, so these two grumpy characters were natural choices for costumes.
We both had an awesome time making them – he sculpted them from scratch using cardboard – even a working crane arm and ‘Pinchy’ the claw for Diesel 10, and I helped paint and drew their faces.
We had so much fun on Halloween at the parade in our poor, hurricane-swept Brooklyn neighborhood!
