So far we've been able to "guide" Alex into making decent costume choices, and this year, a superhero costume made the cut. He's not particularly into superheros (if you ask him, I'm pretty sure he'd tell you that his favorite superhero is Thomas, the "Hero of the Rails"), but several of his friends are into them, so he's at least heard of the "classics" like Superman and Batman. Honestly, I think that the only superheros he would actually recognize by sight would be Mr. Incredible and Spiderman, and that's only because Spiderman is on his underwear.
Nonetheless, he was very excited to don a cape and mask and transform into Awesome Alex, Defender Of All That Is Awesome. His super powers include shooting lightning bolts from his wrists and talking your ears off.
And what about Isaac, you ask? Well what good is a superhero without a villain? Awesome Alex, meet your arch nemesis, Evil Isaac. His super powers include burping like a dragon and projectile vomiting. His secret weapon? The ability to kill you with cuteness.
The only way we could make him look mean and grumpy was to rouse him from a sound sleep, dress him in a hot and itchy costume, and draw on his face. Poor, adorable evil genius.
After they stood for pictures, our hero and villain flew off to Trunk 'r' Treat at the church, where the battle between awesomeness and evil continued. More pics to come.
