Soldier of Good Fortune
From The Iron Giant (1999)
General Rogard: You realize how much hardware I brought out here? You just blew millions of Uncle Sam's dollars out of your butt!
This is Boo practicing his Halloween Costume for tomorrow's school Halloween dress-up and party.
He made a late switch from Woody (from Toy Story) after the girls from Hamleys painted his face in camoflage on Sunday in Dundrum - Woody doesn't wear make up see?
Hamleys Girls Offering Face Painting as part of as the Centre's fundraising activities supporting the Marie Keating Foundation Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
This was a relief as I have a rule that I only do home-made costumes and the cowboy boots with a cow hide waistcoat were proving difficult to source.
Whereas combat pants, a safari style shirt and camo-raincoat came to €15 in Enable Ireland.
General Rogard is a "Baddie" according to Boo. So appropriate for a Halloween costume and during my Wiki search I found he has the best lines too.
And though you may not realise it - we are looking at a vision of imagination, of ability to follow a theme, to make independent choices, and to "pretend" - he even does General Rogard's voice.
For anyone who ever believed in The Impossible - this is my Boo! xx
