'When I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said, 'a fart,' I wasn't surprised. He can't wait to go trick-or-treating!'
Halloween is going to be a gassy affair for one Oklahoma family this year. Ashley Gray snagged "mom-of-the-year" accolades from fellow mothers earlier this month when she took to a Facebook group for moms to share what her son has decided to dress up as for Halloween this year. The priceless image showed her son Logan sporting the cheekiest of smiles while dressed in a hilarious fart costume. Yes, Gray's son wanted nothing more than to channel the spirit of a fart for the spooky season. "He hugged me after he put it on and said I'm the best mommy," Gray captioned her post.

According to TODAY, other members of the group couldn't get enough of the amusing costume and the youngster's obvious joy in wearing it. "This is absolutely mom-of-the-year vibes right here," one person wrote while another commented: "Love this. Fart and poop are life in our house with my 4 [year-old]." In the fan-favorite picture, a beaming Logan appears to be almost entirely consumed by swathes of brown and green fabric while clutching a remote-controlled fart machine that sounds like "a really bad trumpet player," according to HalloweenCostumes.com, from where Gray purchased the ensemble. The outfit is available for purchase in sizes small to extra-large for $39.99 per piece.
"Logan loves potty humor. He wants a poop emoji birthday party," Gray revealed. "So when I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said, 'a fart,' I wasn't surprised. He can't wait to go trick-or-treating!"
Unfortunately, Logan will not be wearing his sassy costume to preschool, his mother shared. "His teacher doesn't find potty humor as funny as he does," she explained. As it turns out, the fart costume is one that never gets old. A spokesperson for HalloweenCostumes.com told reporters that "the kids' fart cloud costume is always one of our leading costumes in terms of social engagement."
They added that the company has already sold more than half of its fart cloud costume inventory. However, fear not if it goes out of stock before you or your little one manages to get your hands on it. Making a fart costume isn't that hard, according to Ohio mom Brittany Stotts. She made her then-infant son Cove an adorable fart costume all by herself. She spent roughly $15 on netting material for the ensemble which, considering the price of the ready-to-wear Halloween costume, is a total steal. "It was so much better than dressing him up like a baby lion or something like that," Stotts said. "People were cracking up. We didn't get negative feedback at all. Everyone thought it was funny and original and that was what I was going for."
