Shannon White posted a pic of the Halloween costume she worked on for her 2-and-half year old son Bentley. Since posting it on Facebook, it has gone super nova on the information superhighway.
The costume is one of outfits that Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip wore during their hugely popular summer tour. Possibly the band’s last. It was what he wore during the final televised show in Kingston that saw massive ratings for the CBC.
Her pic was even picked up by Buzzfeed who found out how she made it.
White the outfit together from many different sources, including Walmart, thrift shops, craft stores, and a local fair. The scarf is a repurposed sock, and the pants were custom-made.
And how about this, the handkerchief is actually one of Gord’s. Shannon got it from a concert in 2008 and has had it since! Amazing.
