Synde Kraus made this sun costume for Horizon Elementary School – whose mascot is the Suns – during the 2007-08 school year.

The costume debuted at the first school Walk-a-Thon the following year, which had a theme of “Walking on Sunshine.” Horizon principals have worn the costume during the annual Walk-a-Thon each year since. Then-Principal Todd Hunt also famously wore it while on the school roof as a reward for students reaching a reading milestone.
