Last year for Halloween, we knew that we(as in I) wanted to dress Reese as an Ewok. I already had part of the costume, and so that made me decide to do a whole family Star Wars Theme for our Costumes. I decided this before even knowing that there was another movie coming out. Below are links to the tutorials I followed to make our costumes, and some pictures of the process.
Han Solo’s Costume
For Han Solo’s beige shirt, I ended up finding this Henley Shirt from Target on Sale for $8.00 in beige which Grant can wear during the fall as a regular shirt since I didn’t have to alter it at all. He wore some dark grey pants he already had. I wanted to find him some navy ones,but he wasn’t into that. I then put red duct tape on the sides of the pants, and colored with blue sharpie on them to make the stripes on the pants that Han Solo wears. See THIS tutorial to get the picture. This way there was no damage to his original pants. I also sewed a pair of black “boot” covers for his costume that Velcroed around his legs,but he ended up choosing not to wear them.
*** Edit from Grant: Look at those socks in those birks… I love my *german* wife. ***
Princess Leia Costume
If you have any questions about the construction of any of the portion of the costumes, please let me know!
