I’m thrilled to finally share our kids’ Halloween costumes for 2016: Rey and BB-8! (YES, that BB-8 in the picture is a costume) Last weekend, both our little Star Wars fans got all dressed up and we took a bunch of photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
I will do detailed write-ups and how-tos of both costumes at a later date. If you have any specific questions before then, feel free to ask in the comments!
Make sure you check in on Monday, when we will have additional photos from our photo session! UPDATE: You can see them here.
AND, there is still time to enter our Star Wars bracelet Giveaway. Click here for all the details.

omg that BB-8 costume is too cute! I thought it was a prop at the first photo until I saw it’s an actual costume lol! The Rey looks awesome too.
Thank you so much! Since I tend to just “wing it” when make our costumes, I was a bit worried about the BB-8’s practicality, but it worked our well. It is pretty flexible and very light weight so it was very easy to maneuver and wear. (Where as the R2-D2 my son wore last year was a bit awkward)

Wpould like the pattern to BB8. If possible. It is beautiful
Thank you! I am so sorry, I just have not had time to post the most recent patterns. The BB-8 I a really large paper lantern covered in white duct tape… which then is covered in fleece. (The duct tape was needed so it would keep its shape). The head is a foam dome from from JoAnn, also covered in duct tape. Good Luck!
