My son wanted to be a mailman this year. However, not a simple mailman but one who was being bitten in the behind by a dog! This was the homemade US Mailman costume.
It was a very easy costume to make. He looked really great and his costume drew a great response. An additional accessory we could have used to add to the costume would have been a messenger bag with junk mail taped to it; this could also be used to collect the candy!
