I know, you've spent all week getting that Harley Quinn outfit ready, or getting just the right amount of desiccation on your zombie jamboree makeup. But one look at this 3-year-old kid's note-perfect Rocketeer costume should be enough to make you drop that glue gun and melt into a puddle of awwwwwwwwww.

Young Gram was so taken with the opening sequence of the Billy Campbell-Jennifer Connelly movie that his father, Jim from Sweet Juniper, decided to make him a Rocketeer costume using only, as Jim put it, "crap I found in the basement."

Which means an old BMX helmet, an Iron Man mask, sunglass lenses, ethernet cable, two 2-liter soda bottles, about 200 push pins, a thrift-store leather jacket, and a urinal-puck holder were all glued and stitched together to make Cliff Secord's distinctive outfit. Total cost: Maybe $30.

Between this and last year's RoboCop Halloween costume, Jim is basically giving every other dad an inferiority complex.
