Baby Forrest Gump and Lt. Dan Costume

Posted by Brooke AndersonPosted ago

We dressed our identical twin boys, Boyd and Lawson, like Forrest Gump and Lt. Dan for their first Halloween! Mom ordered the clothing parts (hat, shirts, khakis, chewable dog tags, and shoes) online or bought at a consignment shop. We tied the too big pants under the feet with ponytails for the “Lt. Dan, you ain’t got no legs” look. We cut the wig short and sewed it on a sock cap to make more comfortable. Dad built the wheelchair with PVC Pipe and plywood–and attached a 5 point harness from an old swing to make it safe to ride in–then spray painted it. Dad also built Forrest’s bench with plywood we had around the house. We (and EVERYONE else) got a good kick out of it.
