Santa's Little Helper

We thought it was time to lighten things up a bit and post one of Mike Hale's sillier costumes. Today's Hale-oween ensemble is titled "Naughty Elf". You see, Santa's little helper has had enough of wooden toy making and is ready to do some celebrating...elf style.

The costume rests on Mike Hale's shoulders allowing him to operate the puppet-like arms ( and other unmentionable parts) from under the snow bank.

Constructed from a cardboard box, the gingerbread cottage is adorned with faux gumdrops, candy canes, ornaments and twinkle lights.

You are just too good, Mike. This is great. What is the world do you do with these? I would say there must be a market for hand crafted things like this.

Hope you are feeling better MH! You know how much I love these and just wanted to let you know that I changed the photo on my link, so that a few people might drop by.

Happy Halloween my friends!

Thanks Abe. My costumes are collecting dust in our basement, along with alot of other pieces. I never thought about marketing many irons in the fire. It would be fun to do a show with just costumes.
