1  Re: 2008 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by GoldenOn18 on: February 22, 2009 06:36:41 PM
My boyfriend was insistent on being a sith from Star Wars (he had the double-ended lightsaber, so he just HAD to). I love the idea of being couples for Halloween, so I was Leia!

I know, I know, the hood is missing! I only had a few hours after work for 4 days, all the while keeping my godchildren at bay and yelling at my 25 year old sewing machine!

And the belt wasn't quite right, I bought it right before the party we went to, but it'll have to do. Sorry about the karaoke screen covering me up!

I bought the boots off ebay, and it's as close as I could get for Leia boots... You only see them breifly maybe 3 times throughout the whole series...

Oh! and here's the pattern I altered to make the thing in the first place.
(McCall's M5746)
I had to completely modify the collar, and turned the pencil style into an a-line with a slit on both sides, and make sleeves, so I guess I just used the pattern as a rough draft.

As for the hair- I bought a cheapie wig at wal-mart and elastic'ed it into pigtails and cut them off (the remaining piece of wig was a hit at the party for my friend's drunk character "buzz"!!!), and hooked them into my hair. I figured styling a partial wig style would be way easier and more comfortable than wearing an entire brown wig.

I'm sure I'll be making my next costume, I've never worn a pre-made costume before, and I don't plan on it!!!
