Gnome, Sweet Gnome

And, in the next-to-last installment of the Halloween Posts That Will Never End Is She Done Yet? Series, I give you Jimmy's rejected costume:

Garden Gnome
The garden gnome.

Tap Gnome
Ellie is modeling parts of the costume, and doing a damn fine job of it, too.

This Gnome Is Made Of Ham
Oh, fierce. Can you see what she's doing here? That she's being a gnome, but making it fashion? Eat your heart out, Tyra.

So, all is well that ends well vis-à-vis the gnome costume. Had I heartlessly forced the little guy into it, I like to think it would have looked like this:

Fail Gnome
Or something.

(If you have an hour or so to kill AFTER YOU VOTE(!) waste some precious time over here.)

That gnome costume is freaking great. What was your little bit thinking not loving it? I want my son to be this next year but I fear he might hate it too. He will be almost two next year perhaps I can still squish him in to it? Oh I do love it. He was his dad this yr at 9 1/2 months complete with overalls and a painted on mustash.

I love yard gnomes. Yours is the best one ever.

Well, Master James certainly missed the boat on this one. He would have been one mighty fine gnome. Good thing his big sister is there to steal the show (again).

Both the gnome and the Munchkin are absolute genius. Great costuming!

We bow to the costuming genius that is you.

Too bad he didn't like it.

(I'm blaming 2. They don't do beards. Or much else.

And are you so amped for tonight's results. I know you are. Make sure your champagne is chilling.)

Great costume! And your model is adorable.

Funnily enough, I was thinking norwegian troll costumes would be cool for my boys one year.

The beauty of the absentee ballot is more time to spend glued to the t.v. waiting for the results.

You are a mommy goddess.

Well, the gnome outfit is done excellently well, but if I were a little boy, I would have wanted to be a lion too. What were you thinking, Mom?

The costume is fabulous! But what is even greater:::: Her fashion posing.

I don't think I have ever seen such a sassy, cute gnome ever!

Thanks for making my morning. :)

My son was a Gnome as well. Too Cute!!

O.M.G. I can not believe he did not want to be the Gnome.
Ellie is beyond fierce. I absolutely adore the photos....especially The Fail.

The costumes are awesome!! Not being one who actually likes garden gnomes, I have to admit that "yours" is pretty gosh darn cute! The lion? yeah...I like that lion. But...the munchkin. THAT was pure artistic genius!
What a cool mom you are!!

OMG. That is HYSTERICAL. Great costume. And loved the ANTM reference. (Am patting myself on the back for guessing "leprechaun," which is in roughly the same category as garden gnome and munchkin.)

Becky said...

All of these costumes are so great. I am sending my kids to your house next year. They'll wear anything!

I Love the Gnome Costume. Best costume I've seen, but then again, the model made it so much cuter!!
