Really, I am just as stumped as you! Has he had any suggestions, or is he at a loss as well? My parents always let us pick our stuff from kindergarten on up, with of course veto power if they thought it was inappropriate (one year we told the youngest kid, who was like 7 at the time, to tell mom she wanted to be a hooker, she had no clue what it was, but mom vetoed it and we all got in trouble for picking on her) but anyways... have you tried taking him along to look at costumes or patterns? Show him some on line, maybe he'll get some ideas there! Good luck! I wish I had a clever idea for you, but I'm getting dorky these days - my hubby and I are gonna be penguins! See - not very cool for a twelve year old boy tobe a penguin! Good luck!!
