So, my boyfriend and I have been invited to a Star Wars themed Halloween party.  Any ideas for semi-last minute costumes that would be cheap to make and not too boring?  So far, our best idea is to dress my boyfriend up as a lightsaber (black parts with a switch taped on, and paint the top 3/4 of him with glow in the dark paint- ok, that may be ridiculous, but I think it will be highly amusing). I still have no idea what I will wear.

Any suggestions are welcome!

The Vader iron lung thing?  Take a black tee shirt, paint the boxes (or use cereal boxes), and glow in the dark paint to create the switches.

Would be great paired with a thing of black pants.

Hmm, interesting idea.  I'll have to find a picture of it to refresh my memory and see how  would make it.

Hope I could help - or you could do Han Solo.  (White long sleeved shirt, blue vest, black pants and a blaster pistol)
