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.

‘Tis the Season for Star Wars Bling

My hubby is nothing, if not a thoughtful man. Why else would he get me the new Game of Thrones season set, EVERY year for my birthday….   Why else would he happily enable my Star Wars Lego Mini-fig habit?   Why on earth would he rewire all our Internet cables in the house so we, I mean I, could get caught up on Breaking Bad on Netflix before the last season started on TV, if it wasn’t out of love for me?

And if giving your wife the complete series set of Battlestar Galactica “just because,” isn’t romantic, then I don’t know what is…

Well, maybe Star Wars Jewelry…

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.
