Fashion Disaster: Hero Scores A Zero

Every I since I picked up this costume at a resale store a few weeks ago, Park has been wearing it non-stop. When I tried to coerce him to change clothes before we left for the playground, he simply replied, "But it helps me do my mission, Mommy."

How could I argue with that?

It doesn't seem to bother him in the least that he is running around saving the world as a no named character, but for the life of me I can't figure out what action figure this was designed to be.

Should I just chalk it up to the fact that it was 50 cents for a reason and move on with my life or can somebody out there help me out? (Your best guesses are greatly appreciated)

Now, keep in mind that there are also gloves and boots that finish the ensemble, but I was afraid he might be featured on Big Mama's Fashion Friday if I revealed the completed look.

On a WHAT NOT TO WEAR special edition, possibly with my picture posted right next to his.

I can see the caption now: "It is one thing to allow your child to experiment with dress up, but how could this mother allow her son to wear this no named character with mismatched accessories? His fashion future hangs in the balance, and I for one am worried he may never recover from this."

No pressure, Internet friends, but Park's fashion future rests in your hands. Please help shed some light on what this costume was designed to be. Or at the very least, tell me your kids dress up as no named action heroes, too.

Even if they really don't.

Do you accept your mission?

OK- I'm thinking a Western style blue ninja turtle?

Whatever it is, he sure looks like a cutie wearing it!

He DOES seem so happy in this costume.

With the whales tail in the circle, I am thinking...Aqua Man or maybe Marine Man or maybe part of the Blue Man Group!

I think we should just call him the Parkinator!
Or Chris junior?
