Can we talk about how awesome blue-ringed octopuses are?
Since sharing the photo, Chu has received support both online and in person.
“We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about the costume on social media. The folks that saw us taking pictures at the beach had a lot of compliments as well,” she told Mashable. “I’m now being followed by octopus groups on Instagram. Haha!”
Chu’s husband, Tuan Nguyen, took the stunning photos.
“I was so happy with how the costume turned out that I made Parker and Tuan go down to La Jolla Shores to snap some photos,” Chu wrote on her blog.
“We arrived as the sun was setting and the tide was low. It was perfect and Tuan did a fantastic job capturing the essence of the costume.”
Mary, Tuan and Parker are clearly all ready for Halloween.
“Halloween is serious business in my family,” Chu told Mashable.
“I’m glad I was able to make Parker a unique costume that reflects his interest in sea life.”
