I have to get one more post of Halloween costumes in before we get too far into November. November 1st is not too late, is it?
Still no great pictures, but a few more details.
The Stormtrooper costume was made with white vinyl. I had no idea how easy it would be to work with. I sewed some parts by hand and others by machine. It went through my machine without a problem. The best part? It cost less than $3. I picked up a white hard hat from the thrift store and transformed it into a stormtrooper helmet with a little black duck tape. My only complaint is that it was impossible to sit down in...you'll notice in the pictures.
Darth Vader was also made with vinyl and black duck tape we had at home. Then I searched my random hardware stash for all the buttons and things. I borrowed the helmet from a friend. Too bad she's never getting it back. Kidding...sort of.
Yoda...pretty obvious. Muslin from my stash and a little wool felt for the hat, gloves and shoe covers. The ears used to stick out much better, but it's already got so much use that they've softened up a little too much.
No more pictures of me and Spence. My headband was made with balls of yarn. Our costumes were pretty self explanatory. And I wasn't wearing it a second time. Once was enough for the year.
I'll try to post about something other than costumes next time.
