Halloween Costumes Gone Bad

This is a strange one even for a kids blog like this

This post strays a bit from the baby / child focus of this blog… but what the heck. Variety is the spice of life, right? Anyway, you know those parents that let their kids wear Halloween costumes all year round? I dedicate this post to them.

Given Halloween is right around the corner I found this post over at Boing Boing particularly interesting and at the same time frightening. I suggest you keep the cow costume in the closet this year.

She wore the costume again when she appeared for sentencing.

… I’m just sayin…

Niche Post. Parents With Children Who Dislike Sharks Please Disregard

If I were your kid I'd love Casey Millard's shark paintings

You’ve been warned.

I tend to have an odd (relative to most people) taste in art. I’m not a hunter, but for some reason I’m curious about taxidermy. I like art by Luke Chueh and Blaine Fontana… and enjoy bonsai and tropical fish. Weird.

Anyway. I’ve always liked sharks, and Home Canary recently posted about an artist that appears to have a serious, albeit somewhat strange love of sharks. I’ll leave you to decide whether or not your kid would like these, but I suspect that there are a few of you out there that wouldn’t mind sharing some wall space with these creative pieces.

The artist’s name is Casey Riordan Millard and apparently here pieces can presently be seen at Chicago’s Packer Schopf Gallery. If I lived there I would go. I hope some of you will.
