Happy Halloween y'all. I made it! 31 posts! I only technically missed one day.
Here's a sneak peek of Tom and mine's Halloween costumes. We were Princess Leia and Han Solo circa Return of the Jedi/Battle of Endor. It made sense we did these costumes: we wanted something a little less "done" (ie: not the white robe/sexy bikini thing) and I also wanted to make Max an ewok costume. What better place that costumes for the place Leia and Wicket meet? Cute cute cute!
I ended up DIYing a lot of these costumes: I tailored both our pants and Tom's vest; we added yellow stripes to the sides of our pants (I even had Tom hand stitching the ribbon on! Yes, he's a keeper). I made the poncho and then Tom camo tie-dyed it and I made Max's ewok costume. I'll be back, of course, with tutorials for all of these things.
Here's our inspiration:
(check out Max's costume!! Eeek!)
Pretty good, right? I orginally purchased a camo poncho from an Army Surplus store, but decided it wasn't similar enough. I'm a stickler for authenticity. I even purchased cheap-o hair extensions so my heidi braids had some extra length.
What did you dress up as for Halloween?
