Dale Price
  • Dad Waving At The Bus

    Meet Dale Price, a stay-at-home father of three from American Fork, Utah, who dressed up in 180 different, wacky costumes to wave to his 16-year-old son's school bus every morning. For 170 days, he greeted the passing bus in almost every costume imaginable. He also wasn't afraid to cross dress, pictured here on Day 160 as Batgirl.

    Price incorporated props into his morning routine. On Day 167, he waved to his son while sitting on a toilet and reading the paper.

    Price spent less than $50 on costumes and props, according to his family's blog, <a href="http://waveatthebus.blogspot.com/" target="external">Wave At the Bus</a>, borrowing most of his costumes from neighbors and friends. Price, dressed as a pirate, waves to the bus on the last day of the school year.
