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.
We are currently working on this year’s Halloween costumes. Last night, my daughter tried her’s on. As she was grinning from ear to ear, she said the sweetest thing: When I wear the costumes you make for me, I feel warm inside.
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.
