I can't stop laughing every time I see this shot. This is my youngest at a local Halloween parade yesterday. He actually wasn't in the parade, but as you can see he was rearin' to go with the rest of the kids. He's here waiting around for his siblings to finish marching. Anyway, as you can see, his costume is just hilarious. In case you can't tell, his legs go through to the dinosaur's feet, so when he walks around, it looks like the dinosaur is walking. And those are fake legs in blue straddling the dinosaur. A great illusion. He cleaned up when he went trick-or-treating later that night!

What a great suit. Why is all the good stuff in kid sizes, I want one. Hope he didnt eat all his treats in one go.

I still don't see how this dinosaur costume works! Great his expression. Wish I could have seen him getting his treats. I bet the neighbors enjoyed his visit.

Brilliant and hilarious costume. I didn't catch it until I read your explanation.

That is a hilarious costume indeed! :-) I wish I had that one when I was a kid.

That costume is a hoot. Nice picture, too. Also, congrats on ChiSox world series.

Thats the coolest haloween outfit I think I've ever seen, wish they had them when I was a kid. He looks like he's having a great time.

Kids are always nice to portrait, especially while they are playing. You made a nice shot here.

Excellent shot. These are shots that a great lens pulls of without any problem at all. With a lesser lens, the background would be very distracting.

Jurassic Park! :-)
