Will is one-and-a-half years old and obsessed with airplanes, so it seemed appropriate to dress him up as a pilot for Halloween. But we couldn't let him be just any pilot. This kid has a need for speed, just like Top Gun's Maverick. For Will's costume, we copied Maverick's grounded look: jeans, a white t-shirt, a Top Gun bomber jacket, and of course, aviators. Oh, and a whole lot of swagger. Welcome to the danger zone.
Can this baby pull off a bomber jacket or what? The little girl dressed as Alice who kept running up to Will at the neighborhood Halloween parade seemed to agree.
Nick and I got in on the Top Gun theme and wore bomber jackets and aviators, too.
