Thank you guys so much! And yeah the girls had a lovely time! I wish I had some more in progress photos too, but I usually work very late at night anyway, so no one was awake to document!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / These ARE the droids we're looking for! R2-D2 and C-3PO! (Pic Heavy) on: November 02, 2012 02:31:33 PM



This past august I came across some fan art on Tumblr that looked a lot like my kids:


This was when my Seven year old said, "That's what I want to be for Halloween!" And so it began.


(warning, I get messy when I get crafty)


We went to Mickey's Halloween party at Disneyland, they were a BIG hit. Cheesy




My favorite thing about the costumes was the little light I was able to put in R2's helmet! It flickered all night!
Every part of the costumes were hand made (except for the shoes and tights of course) I wish I had more detailed photos of them! :c
R2: The hat was a piece of floral foam that the little one found when we were at the craft store. It's just a little Styrofoam dome, painted, and the little bits added on in fabric and cloud clay. If I had more time I would have made it look more like metal. But the little holographic eye piece, I found a little fake candle(for pumpkins and whatnot) and hot glued it into place. I also made a little clay bit that fit snuggly onto the top part  fitted with some clear plastic that I colored light blue with a sharpie. It's held on with some dark blue elastic.
Her dress was a lot of smaller pieces sewn together, the white plasticy base, and the sheer shiny silver and blue machine stitched on. All pieces were hand cut.

C-3PO: Her head piece was all sculpted from cloud clay and mounted onto a headband, painted gold after drying. The eye pieces (as well as the knee pieces) were bits of flexible cardboard (cereal boxes and whatnot) that I mounted gold fabric to, and added gold elastic to so that they could attach to her glasses/legs. The dress was relatively simple, all free hand cut and sewn together (no pattern for either I just kinda go with it). It used shiny gold lame with darker gold sheer fabric with the arms and chest pieces. The belt is detachable using a D-ring belt loop, and the black stomach joint piece is stitched with close together zig-zags to mimic C-3PO's wiring.

The most difficult part I would say was actually finding the matching leggings for C-3PO's costume, and I ended up taking mustard  yellow ones, and spraying them with gold glittery hair color spray and putting a silvery sock on her right leg.  I had planned to make C-3PO gloves to match, but I ended up not after a few failed tries and it getting closer and closer to our Disneyland deadline.



I hope you all enjoy my little droids! And may the Force be with you!

Oh I'm soooo glad you like it all! Did you get the buttons? They were in the hat I think... D: I'll post some of the pictures that I (and my hubby) took! ^_^

here is it barely at the beginning




Here's Spike, looking all cool.



And his clothes come off!

Well his shirts at least.




The buttons! So you can proudly display what side of the argument you are on!

It was really hard for SOMEONE to part with Spike:

*growls* I hate post offices... I was trying to get mine out today since yesterday I was sick and it didn't open until 9am, the exact time when I had to be somewhere else. *gives the post office a dirty look*

The box is all taped up and sitting on my couch at the moment, I'm gonna go tomorrow after work and send it out.
