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.
Today we have the counterpart to last week’s C-3PO costume post: R2-D2! I made it a few years back, when #1 was almost 4 years old. She wore it for 2 Halloweens, as well as a few parties, so by the time our son was ready to wear it (and we took all these photos), it had been dinged, dirtied, squished, bent, ripped and stepped on more than a few times.
Despite being right in the middle of the Rio SUMMER Olympics, we only have 2.5 months left to Halloween! That means it is time to start planning our 2017 Star Wars costumes! Before I get started on this year’s however, as promised, here is the instructions for #1’s C-3PO from last fall.
