A costume for those big-eyed, juice-box-bellied babies in your life. Recreate the iconic Bob’s Big Boy Statue with this Big Boy Burger Costume DIY!
Ok. Even if you don’t get this costume right off the bat LOOK AT THAT YUMMY BOY!!! Are you kidding me?! It’s a miracle I haven’t eaten him up already. This was his first solo blog modeling job and he was the sweetest, cutest little dude the whole time! AND, he turned two just yesterday (or today as I write this!!) Can you believe that!? I shared his first birthday, a Halloween Carnival here just a couple weeks ago and even that party feels so recent! But it was a year ago!! I love that he’s getting older though, TBH. It’s so much more fun (and way easier than when he was baby) haha.
I’ve always thought my kids had very vintage-style faces. Like Kewpie dolls. They have these very timeless, yet young, features. And one night, my brother in law says “You know what Otto looks like? There’s this vintage statue… It’s like of a little boy, holding a plate of donuts or something…” And I knew exactly what he was picturing! The moment he said it I thought “OMG YES!”
But, neither of us could remember exactly what it was we were thinking of! We knew it was a boy holding something and he had a round ol’ belly and that it was an iconic thing. We just could not put our finger upon it or find what we were looking for by Googling. I never forgot it though, I’d sometimes try to find it again, I just knew it looked just like my son!
Fast forward a couple months and finally I said it to my husband: “Otto looks just like this vintage image I can think of but I can’t remember what it is. It’s like a sign or a statue or something…there’s this cute little boy holding a plate of donuts or something I swear..But I can’t find it online…”
Without a seconds hesitation he knew EXACTLY what it was I was talking about! He whips out his phone and brings up this picture of the Big Boy statue from a Southern California burger Joint, Bob’s Big Boy. (Here is a fun little history on the place.) And I was like “That’s it!!!” Just like that, he understood my cryptic message and solved the mystery haha!
