My sister and I have built a reputation for having awesome Halloween costumes and this one was a HUGE hit. We created our Forrest Gump and Lt. Dan Couple Costume using clothing from our own closets and a few pieces found at a thrift store. My sister played Lieutenant Dan and sat on her legs most of the night to create the illusion of being an amputee… and it worked, people were obviously concerned! She also ‘nubbed’ the legs of her pants with a rubberband to enhance the illusion. My sister drew the emblem for my ‘Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.’ hat and the cover of my Curious George book that I carried.
