Picture Break
It Must Run in the Family

GREAT SCOTT

Okay, so...Halloween spoiler alert? I was planning to wait to post photos but the last piece of Ike's costume arrived today and I'm now way overly excited about it. And honestly, what the hell else have I got going on in my life to talk about? Fun with laundry piles? Places I Was Late To This Week and/or Times I Got Lost? Or Why As An American Citizen I Demand A Better Cordless Vacuum Cleaner To Deal With My Floor Crumb Problem? 

Or maybe I DID wait to post these photos and you're actually reading this...

...in the future.

Things are heavy here, man.

We're gonna need more gigawatts. At least 1.21 of them.

And watch out for the Libyans.

GEDDIT YET?

Eh, who needs you. I'm amused and that's all that matters.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A LAST-MINUTE TODDLER DOC BROWN FROM BACK TO THE FUTURE (or mad scientist/Young Frankenstein/Dr. Horrible/whatever else he'll probably get mistaken for) COSTUME:

I think the hair can go bigger, yes. I didn't want to push too hard during dress rehearsal, but despite the SERIOUS FACE IZ SERIOUS in the photos, Ike was super chill about the whole weird affair so I think I'll be able to get away with some additional hairstyling for the upcoming rhythmic ceremonial ritual.

He was mostly like, "Okay, so this is happening, but I was promised candy. So I'm good."

I knew RIGHT AWAY because of the hair and the remote control.

Christina

This? Is brilliant!

Sara M

So awesome! I knew from the first picture who he was! Love :)

Jen

Perfect....simply perfect!

Kelly

Yeah, I went immediately to Dr. Horrible. If you get a horse mask for Jason, he could be Bad Horse!

Karen

By the way, LOVE it. I dressed my little guy up as Ray from Jerry McGuire last night....tempting.

Olivia

That is the BEST toddler costume ever. Please tell me Ezra will be wearing a puffer vest a la Michael J. Fox.

Dona

You must come to my neighborhood to trick-or-treat this year. This is so cute!

Alicia

Awesome costume! All he's missing is Einstein (the dog).

Cara

It only took the first photo and my brain was all, DING DING DING we have a winner!

Claire

It's the hair! But he looks awesome :)

Liz

This kid....Love x1000.

Melanie

Love. This. Genius!

Suzanne

Epic win!

You mentioned you had the perfect costume and this really is it!

Suzanne

You mentioned you had the perfect costume and this really is it!

Sam

Perfect! Amazing! Soooooooo cute

Elizabeth

Genius!

Katie R

Carter's is selling a bright orange puffy vest this fall so, you guessed it, our 13 month old is going as Marty McFly. Even found tiny aviators for him!

bean

I'm so glad that you posted the pics early 'cuz you were teasing too much! :) He's adorable & the costume is awesome/totally fits!

Stephanie

I love it!!!

Stephanie

Wanted to add that I knew from the first picture and the title of your blog - brilliant!

Steph

OMG. Am dying of the cute. And now I feel like I'm missing an opportunity b/c my two-year-old is also a Boy with Crazy Hair and he's just going as a train conductor.

Susan

I thought Dr. Horrible, too, but it's still a great costume!

Ann

EEeeeee!!! I love it!! He is clearly Doc Brown and not Dr Horrible, since it is a lab coat, not a medical jacket, and there are no welding gloves in sight. So cute!!

Jean

He is the perfect Doc Brown! The hair is spectacular :)

sassygill

I could not scroll away without telling you cute! So cute! Now I feel bad that I totally half-assed my son's costume... But so cute!

RzDrms

Hawaiian shirt = go to Goodwill.

They have everything. Seriously.

Twice Five Miles

Got it immediately. And LOVE.

Susan Y

Amazing. I love it.

Nancy R

Totes knew he was Doc Brown - excellent work!

Rachel

OMG dying from cuteness... and don't throw anything at me, but I don't even know who Dr Horrible is. I can totally see Ez pulling off Marty McFly (& you & Jason as Marty's parents) but I'm sure Ez would have nothing to do with that. I saw Noah with HP glasses on the other day, so I'm sure he won't be Marty either. Too bad. My kids never wanted matching costumes, wish I would have pushed it more when my youngest wasn't old enough to express his opinion. =)

Kathleen

Holy crap. I think I just peed my pants.

Okay, not literally, but this is awesome. Can't believe he's okay with the goggles. Sooo awesome!

Katie

EEEEK!!! THE LIBYANS!!!

Katie

EEEK!!! THE LIBYANS!!! Run, Marty, run!!

Sue C

I GUESSED IT CORRECTLY BEFORE THIS WAS POSTED!!!! I should win.............something.....right?

Tiffany

You, woman, are amazeballs.

Maud

OMG so cute. Cuteriffic. We just showed the kids Back to the Future the other day, so I was right there with Doc Brown. Honest, I was.

Maxine Dangerous

You are my hero. :D

Carole

You are awesome. Thank you. I am lame mom who never comes up with cool costumes. I've been trying to come up with something for my toddler twins, one of whom has crazy blonde hair like Ike's. One tiny lab coat and one tiny puffer vest later, and we have a Doc Brown and a Marty McFly. Perfect lame mom costumes!

Mandy

Love love love love!

Em

GAH TOO CUTE!!!!!!!!

Missie


It looks like the torch of Toddler Owen Wilson Hair has been successfully passed from The Turtle to Little Ikestein.

Allison

That? Is BRILLIANT! Love it! You should've dressed the other two as McFly and Biff :)

PattM

This is the best. thing. ever!!!!!

Liz

I heart everything Back to the Future and OMG The Libyans!! HA! This is officially the best costume ever.

Kate

LOVE IT! That is fabulous. We just recently watched all three films at home over the course of a weekend and I was reintroduced to my enthusiasm for Doc Brown.

Meghan

This is great!! His hair is really perfect for the costume. What an adorable Doc Brown!

bessa

Adorable. Just wanted to say, I got it immediately (and I'm not a super fan and don't even get the bandaids, and don't know his name, but immediately knew who he was).

bessa

Oh, and second on McFly and Biff!

Ann

I squealed a little but when I saw the first picture. So cute and so obviously doc Brown. Well done!

JC

Ha, that's the best and possibly the cutest thing ever.

Nicole P.

You win Halloween. Because THAT is the raddest costume of all time.

Suzy Q

Total Cuteness Overload!

Brigette

I LOVE THIS!!!

Leigh Ann

I can't get over how perfect this is. He'll be a hit!

Stacey

Just awesome!

Dawn

OMG!!! THE CUTE!!!

I got it on the first picture. No WAY the grown-ups are not going to know what he's dressed as. That is if they can see past the CUTE!!!

Liz

This is THE BEST Halloween costume! I think I now need to do the grown-up version, since I already have Doc Brown crazy hair.

not supergirl

I loved this yesterday, and just popped over to look again today. I still love it. I have to admit to being one of the people who first thought of Dr. Horrible, though. Sorry, Baby Ike!

Claudia W

At first I thought he was Dr Nefario from Despicable Me 1 & 2. I was laughing at the thought of Russell Brand's voice coming out of that sweet face.

Emily

This. Is. SPECTACULAR. LOVE IT!

spookiepants

With that hair, perhaps he could be Beck next year:

Doc is awesome, of course, that doesn't need to be said!

Marie, a different one

This? Is hysterical! He's even got the expression down. I think Jason could still rock a red puffer vest.

I laughed at Katie's remark too. EEEEK!!! THE LIBYANS!!!
