Pirate: go to goodwill and find a striped shirt you can cut the sleeves jagged. Get some small black sweat pants ir something similar and you can cut those jagged, too. Get a red sash or swath of fabric for the belt. You are allowed to purchase sword and hat. OR you can do the pirate bandanna thing and on that you can hook a bangle bracelet for an earring which can hang off the bandanna right at his ear... Stick a beanie baby parrot on his shoulder and viola!

Yes, my nephew loves "tough guy" costumes. He's a man and he wants to protect the girls. That is what he says all the time. He's really adorable and I am his favorite aunt.

He said he wanted to be pirate this year. I will find a costume that is comfortable for him to wear.
I am still looking. I agree the last one looks the best. I will post pictures of him and I together when we find our costumes.
Aloha, Whatever you do don't change your mind in the last minute and find the cutest outfit for him(dont let the mother instinct win) i still have nightmares of my fifth halloween when my mother thought "oh how cute" and bought a costume for me. Imagine a native kid with an inflatable pumpkin on his head and orange face makeup!

The kids at school were merciless and yes my mother still has pictures, nightmares i tell you lol.

It's funny, when my nephew was in pre-school, I was taking care of him at the time, I dressed him up for halloween. My nephew loved it, his classmates, not so sure they liked it. I don't know what I was thinking when I made that costume, but I thought it was cute at the time. Just remembered I still have a picture. my nephew in the pic is around 3 or 4; he was a big baby, tall boy and going on 23 this month, he's a big man. He was like 6 ft at age 10.

Please forgive me for putting this child I loved, so muc, through this get-up. I put the picture in my profile will leave it for a while if you want to see it.
Oh My God, that is the most adorable little clown I've ever seen. He has such a cute little face. Adorable picture, (you and your nephew) Thank you for sharing.

My nephew is about 37lb right now, he is a skinny little fellow. He is pretty tall for his age. (40 inches) My big bro is 6'2" and 185lb, my sister in law is about 5'10. So I know my nephew will be tall. Just want my baby to be happy, that is the most important thing.

My parents are living with me temporarily. They perhaps will move out after New Year. I have been through some tough time lately, and I am looking forward to have my nephew living with me for a while, he taught me to take responsibilities of my own actions. He also taught me to be less self absorbed. ..

Thank you knight for your kind words. Yes, He is a very adorable little fellow. Everybody loves him. He is well behaved, and has very good manner. He will grow up to be a wonderful man, just like my big brother aka the dad!!

But, if you show him pictures of what you want to do and talk about it, he might feel ready to try your ideas and have fun with it, being included in decisions is a good way to help a four yr old feel like they have some control over their world.
Wonderful suggestions. Thank you !

I agree! Ask him what he'd like to wear. I'm sure the candy will be the priority for him, not the costume.

He said he wanted to be a pirate. I wonder, however, should I allow him to carry a toy dagger?

Yeah, he wanted a big basket for his candy. I wonder though how much candy should you give a four year old little boy? I am completely clueless about this kind of stuff. Should I give him just 1 or 2? I am not too crazy about giving little kids candy, especially my nephew is such a picky eater. He can eat candy all day long, but he doesn't like to eat regular meals at all.

I normally give my neighborhood kids chocolate covered apples. At least, the kids get to eat some fruits.

Forget the dagger, it would just be in his way . . he wants candy!

Ask his parents how much candy they allow him to eat and follow their lead. Sure, he's a normal kid, and even as adults we prefer sweets to eating a salad.

That's lot of work for you to give out chocolate covered apples and I applaud you for doing it. However, in this day and age when there are jerks (not you!) who give out tainted treats, would it not make parents feel safer to have their kids get store-bought pre-wrapped candy?
