If you were as taken with 16-year-old gymnast phenom Gabby Douglas as we were during the London summer Olympics, and were glued to the television as the “flying squirrel” nailed her all around performance, you know exactly what it takes to pull off her Halloween costume. A long-sleeve leotard, faux gold medal, gray Nike jacket, super-tight bun, and most importantly, a giant performance smile. We’ve made the costume from scratch, for your viewing — and vaulting — pleasure. High kick!

For more Halloween ideas, check out the Snooki + baby Halloween costume, the Katniss Hunger Games Halloween costume, and the Honey Boo Boo Child costume.
