We put his costume on in the parking structure. He really liked the sword. He walked alongside the stroller with no problem.
He was very excited when we got inside. Even more excited when we gave him his treat bucket. He thought the candy was a fabulous thing. "More candy peas!", was his favorite line of the night. The kid would butt in the line and shove other little kids just to get his candy.
My parents and hsuband were quite entertained with all the adult costumes. We saw lots of male, yes male, princesses. I even saw a Snow White with a goatee. There were all sorts of pirates, princesses, Hanna Montanas, and various other costumes.
Overall, it was a great night for the kid.
