This is my son Quintin dressing up in his war jacket and hat after watching The Great Escape. One thing I can say about him is that he loves to make up and dress in costumes. I've taken a ton of pictures over the years with all the ones he's made. I am now starting an album with them all. I think he'd make a great costume designer.
