Joe Toman is only 7, but he's already gone as myriad Milwaukee landmarks for Halloween, including the Marquette Interchange, The Calling (Downtown's orange sunburst sculpture), The Mitchell Park Domes, a Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver and The Hop, which was a group costume with his mom and dad. (See photos of these costumes here.)
So, not surpringly, he chose to dress as Fiserv Forum, entertainment center / home of the Milwaukee Bucks, this year.
"It was fairly easy to make," says Katharine Reilly Toman, Joe's mom. "Most of it's made with felt and two plastic pipes."
Joe attended a Bucks game at Fiserv and said he liked it. Hence, the costume. He also shared some breaking news during our visit this afternoon.
"This is my second-to-last Milwaukee costume," says Joe.
He says he already knows what next year's Brew City-inspired costume will be, but then he's moving on to different costume themes. Stay tuned, Milwaukee.
