I decided to go as Princess Leia this year, and boy did I have fun!  My first craftser challenge

Myself and my R2 unit.  He was a very functional purse that night and held everything we needed and more.

Me with my DDC defender, hood up.

My costume was made by using an old bed sheet for the dress, I was afraid it would be too cold as were known for the freezing halloweens, but thankfully this halloween was just perfect.  My belt was made from a pair of old pleather pants (I knew I was holding onto them for a reason) painted white with foam board for the silver parts hot glued with glass counters in the middle painted silver.  Everything for my belt was hot glued.  My R2 was a $2.00 garbage can, I bondo'ed his head closed, but it was too sloppy for my liking so I paper machied it and then started from there.  Everything is spray paint and foam.  The blaster was made by taking my Dremmel to a dollar store cap gun and then caulking my PVC pipe and end cap onto it, as well as telephone cord to get the proper look.  A lot of fun and even met some other star wars folks at the pub, Obi-Wan was sitting at our table all night.

Here are a few pictures of my sisters costume, she wanted to be a rock lobster (B-52 song) so we had a lot of fun doing this one.

Her costume was made with fabric, stuffing, and old broken Venetian blinds to support her claws and give definition to her tail.  Her eyes and antenna were ping pong balls and pipecleaners.

I forgot to mention, the picture of my sister with the blaring white of her blind was before we covered it.  Unfortunately it snapped during the night and kept stabbing her when she sat.

Also, my fiance didn't know I was dressing up this year and was very happy when I came downstairs in my costume! Grin

I'm waiting for a girl from the pub to e-mail me all the pictures she took, so when she does hopefully I'll have more to choose from.
