So Many Different Costumes

Wow! So many varieties of costumes at this event. There were costumes like skeletons, Indians, head coach Andy Reid’s, and so many more! There were also many little Patrick Mahomes’. Some kids dressed as Mahomes wore knee braces, ankle braces, and wigs. People asked the little Mahomes’ questions like “How’s your knee?”. Whether they got answers or not, there were definite Patrick Mahomes fans.

But there were two outfits, in particular, that stood out to everyone and one outfit in particular that wide receiver Mecole Hardman was blown away by.

The first outfit was a life-size Mahomes Magic Crunch cereal box. Matt Starr worked on the box for three weeks before it was finished. It looked like a replica of the original Mahomes Magic Crunch. The second costume, the one that caught Hardman’s attention, was a small Arrowhead Stadium complete with a tv screen. John Pittman, 11, didn’t walk in wearing his costume. Instead, he wheeled into the real Arrowhead Stadium with his replica of the stadium surrounding him in his wheelchair. Upon seeing him, wide receiver Mecole Hardman shouted excitedly “and he’s got the TV! It’s over. Halloween is canceled. He took the crown. It’s over!” [1]
