Eric Hart is kind of a superdad. Or, we bet that's what his son Collier will say when he looks back in time and sees that he got to be Iron Man on his very first Halloween.
Hart, who's had his own DIY channel on YouTube since 2006 and is the author of "The Prop Building Guidebook," welcomed his first son into the world in July. He tells HLN that due to respiratory issues, Collier has yet to come home from the hospital. But that didn't mean he couldn't wear his very first costume.
It took Hart a few hours over a two week period to cut out and assemble the costume, which was printed out from a pattern he found online.
"So far, there's no date for him to come home," Hart told HLN, "but he is improving and his doctors are optimistic. They think he may be able to come home for Christmas."
Here's hoping that he can wear his Santa costume at home.
In the giving mood? Hart asks that donations be made to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
