Now that it’s officially the Christmas season, I’m finally posting my kids’ Halloween costumes. On it! (Oh, and everything’s wrinkly because they were sitting in a pile near the door cause I kept thinking I’d take pictures this… okay this… no really this afternoon.)

Mr. Yazoo looooves Star Wars (he has almost all the books… which are now only legends, argh!), so he showed the kids the movies and then I told them they were going to be jedi for Halloween. muhahaha.

I made each of the kids a sleeveless tunic and a cloak. Our Halloweens are hot (if they’re not raining), and I wanted to make sure they wouldn’t overheat and then want to take off the cloak. Cause then no one would know what they were!

Generally, I think people could tell they were jedi, although more than one person asked if they were Franciscan monks. hah!

I made Mr. Yazoo’s sith cloak last since I wanted to work out the construction on the kids’ ones. It’s made out of bottom-weight twill (the kids’ ones are cotton broadcloth) because he’s going to wear it every year from now on and we wanted it to be nicer, but I couldn’t afford to buy 8 yards of wool. Plus wool is really warm. But the twill turned out to be a heatbox as well! Too bad, though — he’s still obligated to wear it every year.

P.S. I cracked up when Mr. Yazoo showed me this The Force Awakens special edition trailer… although perhaps you should watch the real one first. 😀

  1. Ha, I love that you told them what they were going to be, did you use the force, or were they willing subjects? 😉

  2. This is amazing! Your kids look so pleased with their outfits. Very accomplished. Well done Alli.
