The best costume of the year didn’t show up until three weeks after Halloween, but here it is. It happened at the Houston-SMU game, where this youngster dressed convincingly as the Heisman Trophy in support of Houston QB Case Keenum. And when Keenum wins the award thanks in part to this young man’s creative ingenuity, the kid’s toxic skin poisoning from that body paint will have been totally worth it.
Here’s another look at the costume from another angle. Well played. I’ve heard of trophy wives, but a trophy child?
