three little birds (part 2 of 4)

In our quest for the perfect boy bird costume, we faced a lot of struggles.
Most of the ideas that I found online were chickens, cardinals, crows, etc.
Fluffy lameness for a rambunctious little guy.

And then it hit me.  Swoop!!!  Anyone that truly knows us, knows that we are die hard Ute fans.
What better way to express our love for our Utes than to dress up our little guy as Swoop, the Red-tailed Hawk?

I became the most excited about his costume the second that I thought of it.
We already had a Utes basketball jersey, all I needed was some Under Armour, a tail, wings, and a head dress.

Thanks to Hobby Lobby for all of our crafting desires!!!
And another big thanks to Grandma Carol for crocheting a hat and a pair of big eyes. 

His beak didn't quite turn out how I had imagined it.  I pretty much settled because I was sick of messing with it.

But overall I am happy with the results.

I love my little Swoop/Red-tailed Hawk!!!
His look pretty much says how he felt about getting his picture taken, at least initially.
He quickly changed his feelings about the situation.  "Mommy I wike beind a bowdie!!!"

He had to keep checking his tail.

And his wings.
