Despite being right in the middle of the Rio SUMMER Olympics, we only have 2.5 months left to Halloween!  That means it is time to start planning our 2017 Star Wars costumes!  Before I get started on this year’s however, as promised, here is the instructions for #1’s C-3PO from last fall.

A quick reminder, we made the R2-D2 costume a few years back when our daughter was younger, and it fit our son perfectly last fall.  As you can imagine, choosing #1’s new costume was a no brainer.   Here they are in the classic droid pose 🙂

    • Doing a quick calculation, I think I spent about $140 (almost a third of that was spray paint, I used 6 cans total I think) That does not include the tools or items we had around the house (such as glue or the plastic lids. Speaking of lids, I planned ahead. Knowing I was going to need them, I saved all smallish plastic containers for at least a month before we even started making the costume). I also spent countless hours looking for items to use – scavenging at dollar stores and online clearances. No one said making your own costumes was the cheaper or easier way to go – but it is by far the most fun!
