M4P friend Linda and her family always bring a surprise for our May the Fourth be with You Parties – be it a totally original dish, or fantastic home-made costumes. My favorite is their Sand People Family costumes from 5 years ago.
The hubby said it couldn’t be done. So of course I took that as a challenge: the two of us WERE going to be Imperial Guards for the May the Fourth be with You Party!
I immediately got stuck on the helmet. But refusing to admit that my husband was right (and not wanting to pay for $600 for 2 “real” helmets) I was determined to make them from scratch.
