We've Got You Covered!

Columbus Parent

The winner of our 2012 Columbus Parent Win the Cover contest is 2-(almost 3-)year-old Deklan. He and his parents, Briana and Cory, met us at COSI one sunny morning before the place opened to the public. With his sunny smile, we knew Deklan was a natural and he kept photographer Tim Johnson moving while he added to the LEGO brick arch we had made for him in the LEGO Castle Adventure exhibit. Special thanks to Jaclyn Reynolds of COSI for making our cover shoot possible!

And do you like what little Deklan is wearing on our cover? He was sporting a vest and tie handmade for us by Lesley Cross of Rügrat Design (read more about her in our Etsy Moms feature). The Liam Vest ($18) is reversible, and the Elliot Tie ($15) is pre-tied and easy to secure with velcro. There's also a fun Henry Hat ($18) to match, pictured here.
