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!
10 days left until Halloween! Not much time if you are making your own costume. We have been tinkering with ours for 2 weeks already, and are not done yet (1 done, 1 halfway done), but we will be done this weekend. However, if you have not started yet, there is still plenty of time to make an original costume: Rey is one of the easiest Star Wars characters to improvise with things you already have at home.
“Roma-what?”, I asked for the second time. M4P friend Mary Beth had to say it 3 times before I got it, “R-O-M-A-N-E-S-C-O! You know, that green fractal cauliflower that Rey eats at Maz Kanata’s place in The Force Awakens.”
I can’t remember the last time I made a port-Rey-t out of food. However, when Dave and Joely brought “Rey’s Krispies Treats” to our Star Wars party, I’m af-Rey-d I simply couldn’t ref-Rey-n myself from taking their idea, and making one of The Force Awakens heroine. I p-Rey they forgive me for appropriating their punny name!
Today, we are doing a simpler version of the Lightsaber Hilt Napkin Rings. This easier version requires less time, less mess, and less sharp tools… but is just as much fun to make…maybe even more so. ‘Cuz who doesn’t enjoy doing crafts with paper towel rolls and Duct tape 🙂
