We all know this voice:
"Please, sir, I want some more."
Behold Oliver Twist!
The classic Dickensian victim of a Manichean conspiracy theory! Despite the miserable expression on my face, I had a lot of fun putting this costume together! First, my hair normally comes down to my lower back so in order to transform into a boy, I wove a beehive of about fifty hundred bobby pins into my curls to keep it short and all together. Second, being unfortunately freckle-less, I had to bespeckle my visage with a brown Crayola marker! Third, the MUD. It's real dirt and mud smeared all over everything! As for the costume itself, it was easily found at the local Salvation Army thrift store... and for a good price too! Lastly, I made the signs myself, using my left hand to scrawl.
