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.

Is there Crying at Star Wars?

Stormtrooper Tissue Cover

2 weeks ago, we talked about Star Wars movie preparedness.  The movie premiers tomorrow, and I wanted to mention one last thing:  You’ll probably need tissues!

The fact that there is a new movie coming out is pretty emotional for a lot of people.  And I vividly remember the day, 3 years ago when it was announced that Disney bought Star Wars…

The Hubby was working really late, and I had already turned in.  Around 2 am, I was forcefully awakend by loud thumps, red flashing lights and my bed shaking.  As you can imagine, being woken up like that was terrifying… a lot of really horrible scenarios involving breaking of doors, kidnapped children, robbers (or worse) and police flashed through my mind.

“Sweetie, you are not putting Star Wars characters in Santa hats on your Christmas cards, are you?” M4P Mom asked in a worried tone last week. 

One of the things I do as my day job, is designing custom, high-end cards.  So needless to say, I always design our own Christmas cards.  I have been working on this year’s design for a month now.  I never give any sneak peeks, and my mom was concerned, thinking with the movie and all, the cards were going to be Star Wars themed.  Because that would be just…. Wrong.

The Big Reveal!
M4P 2015 DIY Star Wars Costumes:  C-3PO and R2-D2.

C-3PO and R2-D2 are just like our kids.  They fight, argue, bicker, they insult and occasionally even kick each other…  Don’t believe me?  Here are some side-by-side comparisons from A New Hope, and our house.
