How awesome is this Mega Man helmet? My guy (who is a big video game/computer nerd type, in the best way possible) loves this and made me swear to knit one in baby size for our future baby-ones. Done and done, I say! Because thankfully, this one comes with instructions, thanks its original creator, TrinKnitty (whose husband is pictured below).
On the topic of awesome and/or old school video game character costumes and clothing… how about a kiddo going as Yoshi for halloween? A-dorable! Or a Mario & Luigi duo? I could totally sew those (the costumes, not the children — word on the street is babies are made in an entirely different way?).
