  1. I'm so glad Chewbacca went to rehab to get off the huffing habit. Now Chris and Chewy are back together and life is back to "Normal."

  2. Hi! Nice chanel! Today i saw the youtube academy video that you did and that bring me here. Nice to meet your work 🙂

  3. My school had a costume parade every year. When I asked my mom to make a goblin costume, we bought a cool mask, then she went to work. She got a grey sweat shirt and sweat pants and hot-glued short black pipe cleaners all over it to look like spikes. I was so embarrassed after putting the costume on at school (no gloves or special shoes), I refused to join the parade.

    I think I went trick or treating that night in my previous year's costume.

  4. It was last Halloween and I asked my mom if she could do me a McDonald's fries costume and she did out of cardboard colored paper she even did the logo

  5. hmm half of these videos weren't in my sub box =( maybe put links to previous videos in the end ?  in case like this

  6. I was also a Boca on Halloween
    And I had supporters so I was 7feet. And I looked like the real thing.

  7. When I was six my mom decided to dress me up. All my friends were dressed as Pikachu and my teachers asked me what I was. I remember telling them all I knew was that I was some guy in a mask with a knife. About midway through my teens I realized my mother had dressed me as Jason and had never explained that to me.

  8. Hey Matt, glad you're making videos again. Anyway, my favorite costume I've ever had happened when I think I was 7 or 8 years old, and I loved spongebob, so I asked my mom to make me a spongebob costume. It turned out to be spongebob painted on an old stroller box with arm and head holes. I wore the box along with some brown shorts, long socks, and black tennis shoes. It was the best!!
