This Kid's Mister Rogers Costume Is Definitely the Cutest One in the Neighborhood


This. Costume. Is. Awesome.

OK, we may be a little biased — after all, one of our Mighty contributors, Mary Evelyn Smith, made it. But seriously, it’s stellar.

Check out the photos below of Simeon decked out as Mister Rogers. His wheelchair only makes the costume better.

“Let me tell you: this kid digs Fred Rogers,” Smith writes on her blog, “What Do You Do, Dear?” “He requests an episode each night after dinner and regularly begs us to serenade him with tunes from the show.”

You’re definitely the coolest kid in the neighborhood, Simeon.
