This last Halloween we did Star Wars as a family.... here are some images that hopefully inspire you this year.
Step 1: Face Paint
Painting a 2 year old can get tricky.... they are also quick to rub their face. I did paint it twice... once with more detail and the other pretty plain because of time constraints and nap schedules.
Step 2: Supporting Cast
Paint and dress the rest of the kids/cousins/wife
I had they lay down on the dining table so they would sit still with their head facing me. This meant i had to paint them upside down but it was a non-issue.
Princess Leia we used an angle gown from a church play, a long wig spun into buns and a nerf gun painted black.
My wife was a trooper (Purchased Captain Rex combo)
Step 3: Final Touch... Yoda Pumpkin Carving
After cutting out the guts, carve a 3D relief of Yoda... the candle light then shines through the meat of the pumpkin.
Step 4: Luke Skywalker... the Ultimate Yoda Accessory.
I dressed up as Luke.... the ultimate Yoda accessory.
Hiking pants, belt, lightsaber, t-shirt with cutoff sleeves... and a Baby Bjorn (kid hauler) warn backwards.
Load them up and go get some candy!
