Gangnam Filter. I'm dressing my 4-year-old as Psy for Halloween. Ideas welcome.
My kid, nearly 4 years old, likes watching the Gangnam Style video. His dad posted a photo of him watching it and someone suggested we do a Halloween costume of Psy
for it. I asked him if he wanted to be that dancing guy
for Halloween and he said okay. So why not? This will probably be the last year that I have a large say in his costume. (He originally wanted to be a witch and I bought stuff for that, if this all backfires.)
I'm not very craftsy, but I'm willing to try.
I bought a white suit
on Amazon, a black bow tie, and this color
Rit dye. I got this piping
for the suit. (Spending $30 on the suit pained me, but I think that I'll dye the whole suit in hopes of reselling it or something.)
He has some black pants.
I'm not willing to pay for shoes that will only be worn once. I think that I'll put him in these sneakers
. It seems that Psy wears loafers for most of the video. (If you have some preschool size 11 shoes that fit the bill, I'm willing to listen.)
I'm looking for kid size black sunglasses.
Other ideas on what we could do to make this fun?
- Kid is sort of learning the dance, but he is not a good dancer and I feel like I'm on Toddlers and Tiaras having him practice it.
- Maybe we could carry a basket of horses?
- Maybe we could carry a phone and play the song as we walk around?
My child is not Korean or Asian, if this matters.
(And if you think this is a terrible idea for a reason that I haven't thought of, I'm willing to hear that too.)
