One of the fun things about having kids is the number of Halloween-related events, well, assuming you like Halloween and costumes as much as I do! Today was our first event of many, and we were excited to debut our new, or in Leia’s case, slightly improved, duds.
I got carried away with adding more and more details- I was actually sewing things onto my outfit in the car to and from the Wee Girl’s soccer game this afternoon.
The Boy’s costume is all DIY/regular clothes except for the mask and light saber, which I bought.
The Wee Girl’s outfit is from 2 years ago, but she insisted on being Leia again. But this time around I bought her some new boots.
I’m so pleased with how this turned out! I thrifted/up cycled/made the entire outfit, and was working on details up to an hour before our event.
I came up with more details for the belt this morning. Hot glue gun to the rescue!
We have a Star Wars event tomorrow, so we’re excited to wear our outfits again and to see what getups others come up with!
