CBC Halloween Costume Ideas: Mr. Dressup

For last year's 75th anniversary of the CBC we were the cast of Mr. Dressup for Halloween.

To become Mr. Dressup and Casey and Finnegan, Calum, James and myself went into our own tickle trunk for most of the items and made a quick trip to a costume store and to H&M for the rest. Having the original Mr. Dressup treehouse right here in the CBC Toronto building helped, of course.



It's a great Canadian group costume that will put a smile on people's faces wherever you go this Halloween. Here's what you'll need to create the looks for yourself...
