Halloween 2017: Hoth Edition!
Before we even completed our 2016 Halloween The Force Awakens costumes the kids decided that in 2017 we were going back to the classics: namely Hoth!
We began collecting supplies in early August, and by the time we started the sewing in September, our whole dining table was completely filled with stacks of fur; rolls of duct tape; cans of spray paint; yards and yards of straps, fabric, and fleece; not to mention ski goggles, a viking helmet and a small-ish T-Rex.
Since the kids are not allowed to wear masks either at school or trick-or-treating in our area, we decided to make a removable face panel for the Wampa costume. It worked out really well. The mask looks cool, but to be honest, is a bit hard to see and breath out of. + Now that it is detachable, we can actually use the head (sans mask) as a hood/hat on its own. Considering how often I get a chance to wear my Yoda and Jarjar (post to come) hats, I figured that a Wampa hat would be just as useful 🙂
Things have been really busy this past year, but I promise I will write complete DIY posts for both costumes at a later date. If you have any questions before then, just ask in the comment section!
…and stay safe Trick-or-Treating tonight!
