Tom has ambitions. Plans. I’ll let him tell you about them.

I am going to run a store. When it’s built I think lots of people will like to come and it will be a costume store. I think I would like to build it in Parramatta. It will be colourful and have some masks on the walls. It will have things like Marvel costumes and some won’t be Marvel but lots will be from different types of movies. There will be things like Batman, the Joker and Catwoman and also some of them will be The Shredder and Casey and April. That’s gonna be it for now.

Sometimes I’ll show people how I make the costumes. I might also let some children try them on to find out what size they need. I might take a little break in the morning, if I’m allowed to. Also there will be people who will be the boss when I’m not around. It will be open Saturday and for the whole week except it won’t be open on Sunday because I take a break on Sunday. I am going to make all the costumes.

I think lots of people will find it interesting, and I think lots of people will be excited and can’t wait until it’s going to be open! It’s going to be a nice store, I hope rats don’t come in and people find the rat and then close it down.*

I know I can’t wait till it’s open 🙂

    That is so freakin’ adorable! I love the inclusion of the TMNT characters – but what about the Turtles themselves?? Come on now 😉 Tell him i’d come in to rent a Raphael one, hee.

    Tom says OK, he’ll make TMNT turtle costumes for adults if they’d like them 🙂

    Just gorgeous Mim…just gorgeous. I’d even travel up to Parramatta to check it out.

    That’s pretty special! I hope I’ll be able to buy something there!

    Very cool. Maybe he could also sell the traditional costumes of his home planet…

    Ben can open his ice cream shop and butterfly emporium next door for a total kids’ shopping experience. Of course Ben’s shop’s hours will need to accommodate his medical career, because he is also planning on being a doctor. These aren’t serial plans, when asked he is going to be all of these things at the same time.

    Perhaps Tom could also run a party planning business on the side? wow, I think his plans are a lot more thought out than some adults actually starting a business!

    Ok we’re convinced – we’ll visit it!

    OOH I think you need to encourage a few brown coats in that costume shop too.

    soooo cute.

    Have you read the intro by Nathan Fillion in Serenity: Better Days #1 comic? It’s all about how he always wanted to be a super hero…
    He’d have LOVED a store like Toms.

    If I have my way with the Tiny Tyrant (all together now: snigger like parents have any say over kids' interests!) maybe he and Tom can go into business together. 😉
    Tyrant's already fascinated with the sewing machine, at one year old.
