Sketchabilities - Challenge #99

Book week can be quite a difficult time for parents; the little ones often have their super hero's that they wish to represent and those costumes can be very hard for parents to replicate. It is not surprising in this very busy world that parents are apt to hire or buy the costumes for the children, especially when there is more than one child attending school.
A previous post Jack Frost was made using this same sketch and explains a little of our past costumes and the one he is wearing. This photo is of our second grandson who wanted to be Leonardo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle for book week. He is a funny little fellow who can take on the persona of the character he is pretending to be. I had his face painted as a tiger once and he morphed into a big angry cat so quickly. I imagine his parents took some time to ensure he understood the rules relating to his behaviour when he was in this costume. The boys' dad had used a roll of gaffa tape and several newspapers to make the staff for 'Jack Frost' and the sword for 'Leonardo'.  Their Dad is FIFO and only home for seven days out of twenty one so he was thrilled to be there on this special day in his son's school year and to be able to help their Mum with their costuming.
Thank you for looking and any comments you may leave, best wishes.
