What's a good costume for a little boy who hates wearing costumes?

I have a very sweet, sensitive little 2-and-a-half year-old nephew who has no patience for wearing hats/masks/capes, etc. Even things that are of great interest to him- like a fireman hat at the Children's Museum- cannot be worn. I'd be fine with him not wearing a costume but I think he'd feel left out of his school's Halloween festivities. He loves all things most little boys love, like dinosaurs, farms, animals, trains, etc. I'm pretty crafty and can find my way around a sewing machine so I don't mind a costume that requires some work. A super hero seems like a possible idea but I can't think of any heroes that don't have a cape. I'm hoping someone has some excellent ideas for a costume that, when worn, wouldn't feel any different than wearing regular pants and shirt. He lives in a coldish climate but for the most part he'll just be wearing this indoors.
