Halloween at AMNH

Mikro enjoyed Trick or Treating as New York's state fossil at the American Museum of Natural History. One museum employee saw him and said "Cool eurypterid!" Most people, however, thought he was anything from a bedbug, to a beetle, to a rat. (Huh????) Paleontology Boy had fun educating people about his costume, and wandering the halls of his favorite place as if he belonged on exhibit there...

Kevin and I somehow stayed awake and cheerful, despite pulling an all-nighter to finish his costume. Next year, Mikro gets to take the laboring oar on costume making...

Fantastic costume. My oldest son would have loved that costume and Trick or Treating in a museum when he was a kid. Well, he would love it now at 25. LOL!
Blessings, Dawn

It came out great! The museum was the perfect place to wear it too. I don't get the rat thing either. Maybe a mutated rat...
