Halloween Costumes 2011

Happy Halloween Monday!!!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend and is all ready for trick-or-treating tonight.  We sure are.  The kids have had their costumes picked out for a while now.  And Mom had her work cut out for her.  But it was fun to make costumes this year when the kids were all excited about it.

So with out further ado...here is this years Halloween Theme!
Dylan is obviously not impressed with Darth Vader...:)

Lucas had his costume pick out since early this summer, after watching ALL the Star Wars movies with Dad.  He wanted to be Darth Vader...which scared me because of how intricate that costume would have been to make.  If I would have found a mask I probably would have attempted to make this one, but at a whooping $19, buying one at Walmart seemed like a better option.  He loved it and that's all that mattered.  I think he made a pretty handsome, evil Darth Vader myself.

Emma couldn't decide what she wanted to be, but by default of the boy's costume, she became Princess Leia.  I made this one...even the 'Leia Buns.'  The dress was a just a simple a-line followed off of an old dress.  And the belt is made out of scrap white jersey from the dress and felt.  The hat was made from a modified pattern I found here and then I added the some rolled up fleece and sewed it on the sides for buns.   Check out my cute little model.

My brothers have nicknamed Dylan,Yoda.  I don't know why it fits him so well, but it does.  So he became Yoda for the fun of it. Those ears on him just make me laugh!  I used McCall's pattern #MP493 to make the tunic and then the hat was from a pattern I discovered here.  It was super easy to make and I just added my own 'Yoda Ears.'  

It was tons of fun making these costumes.  There was lots of laughing, smiles and memories made.
I am very excited for trick or treating tonight (as are the kids.)

Hope you have enjoyed!

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
