Neato... I've seen a costume before where the person appears to have two heads, but that's not as good. Anyhow yes it is too early for Halloween. I feared it might take a month to get everything together. and I didn't want to order the cape and blazer online for 70 British pounds each. (Around $280 total? I'd be quite ashamed of myself)
