Halloween 2016: The Force Awakens Edition!
After the kids saw The Force Awakens last year, they immediately made me promise to make them Rey and BB-8 costumes for Halloween. And to be perfectly honest, it didn’t take much convincing.
After 9.5 LOOOOONG months of waiting (we all know how patient 4-year olds are), we spent the past few weeks covering paper lanterns in duct tape and fleece, and painting fabric with tea bags. WOO-HOO!
The Hubby already had the Poe costume (I made it for our May the Fourth be with you Party), so of course he had to wear that for our photoshoot. I also REALLY wanted to make Captain Phasma armor for me, but there just was not enough time. I’m still a bit sad about that. If I finish it for next year, we may just have to take more TFA pictures.
Now, Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. Having not grown up in the US, I have to admit the tradition of Halloween itself is a bit confounding to me, but I LOVE the excuse to make costumes and dressing up. And now that the kids are getting older and more involved, the costume making has turned into quite the family affair.
I will write complete DIY posts for all 3 costumes at a later date, but if you have any questions before then, just ask.
