Our costumes for this year are a bit different from the last few years… my boys are growing up and so are their tastes! So I went with it!
They don’t know anything about Star Wars…for a long time they called it CarWar. They’ve never watched a movie or show, know what Star Wars’ about or what they stand for. But last summer, Liam went on the Star Wars 3D ride in Disneyland at 10:30 pm for his last ride of the day and came out a fan. The following day everything Liam wanted was some CarWar stuff; so did his baby brother!
So, in 2016, we are officially Star Wars fans (I grew up watching the movies, but Brian had never heard about them until I came in the picture and dressed up as Queen Amidala in grade 13). I still wanted to make our costumes; Liam as BB8, Logan as R2D2 or has he calls him Hardy-too, Brian as Chewbacca (not included in our pictures because of his major lack of fun-ness!) and myself as Princess Leia (I have the hair so why not used it!).
My mom knitted some hats for the boys and I sowed and glued their robot costumes (probably the easiest of costumes ever made). So they were not too complicated to do, but they are just so nice! We went to a very shady part of Brian’s hometown for the pictures, a place call Peace Mountain, which was perfect for taking pictures, but a place I don’t recommend visiting alone, especially if you’re easily scared like my chicken-shit Chewbacca!
Now, we can’t wait to decorate our pumpkins and make special treat bags for our friends. Only 1 more week to go!
I love family themed costumes, I hope they’ll let me do it for a bit longer!
So what’s your costume this year?
