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.
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.
We are ready for Trick-or-Treating!
We made the R2-D2 costume for #1 a few years ago, and it now fits our son perfectly…. which made the choice for the other characters obvious. Click here for more photos from our shoot 2 weeks ago.
