Rain Price was initially horrified when he looked outside the school bus window passing his house and saw his dad, Dale, donning a scarecrow costume and waving goodbye. It was the first day of his sophomore year–and terribly embarrassing. On the second day, his dad showed up sporting a San Diego Chargers helmet and jersey. Day three came along and his dad was dressed as Anakin Skywalker.
At first the costumes were simple and modest, but they progressively became crazy…Batgirl, Chiquita Banana, Little Mermaid. Over the course of the year, he dressed up as every Wizard of Oz Character.
Luckily, Rain has a sense of humor and realized that his dad was just having fun, and friends found Rain’s father hilarious.
“Most of them like it, and we roll down our windows and wave. It’s fun,” Rain told theDeseret News. Rain’s a straight-A student and about to become an Eagle Scout.
Dale says he did this out of love. “It’s a way of letting him know that we really care about him, but doing something a little different. It’s a father’s way of saying I love you,” Dale told KSL.com.
Dale never wore the same costume and he claims to have spent only $50 on all his get-ups. Dale pulled from the family’s Halloween collection and neighbors pitched in and loaned outfits and props.
