We dress up as a family every year- our theme this year is Star Wars- DS has claimed Luke Skywalker, DD Leia Solo- as a jedi...
DH may be Darth Maul- depends on deployment; I'm going as Padme Amidala- in the Naboo fighter pilot costume.
DS turns 3 Aug 15 and is having a Star Wars party (you sensing a theme here?) and he wanted to wear his costume for the party- so DD didn't want to miss out... I have just the basics done for now, theres a lot more detail work before Halloween..and 4 other costumes to make (aunt and aunt's boyfriend go with us too)



Let me know what you think!!   Cheesy

You've done a really great job on your costumes! They are so cute! My son went as Obi-Wan a few years ago and it was one of my favorite costumes that I made. I love that you all dress up as a family I've always wanted to do that but it never happens.
Who knows maybe we'll try Star wars again!

AWWWWWW! Too cute. Cheesy Great work. I made a Jedi robe a few years ago for my DH.... who then refused to wear it (the jerk) so I threw together a Jedi costume for myself.

They're always a big hit. Cheesy

I can't wait to see more pics of the rest of the families costumes. Smiley

Gosh these are some lucky children.. I know my mother used to make my costumes from hand and I loved them so.  actually I still have them.  I hope they will cherish these for all time.  They look great.
