This post has been a long time coming! It all started back in May in a little hospital room in San Antonio. We were just learning of the extensiveness and long term duration of burn care. I was totally clueless before the girls' accident. We learned what compression garments were and that A would be in them for at least a year. David had a great idea to cheer her up. A could be Rey for Halloween as she has the arm cover ups. A was all for it and the plan began. Our whole family would be Star Wars. And so, I present my Star Wars family to you.
My DIY R2D2 Costume
I actually made Baby G's costume. You guys know that I love felt. I simply started with a white baby onesie, blue/gray/black/white felt and went from there.
Baby G as R2D2
He loves his Hallmark itty bitty.
F was BB8.
I love that the younger boys were the droids.
Miss E was a charming Princess Leia.
She left her wig on all night!
D was the spunky one on the dark side of the force.
Storm Trooper D
C was Luke. I found this awesome Jedi cloak on Etsy byC3design and it is perfect. The sleeves and hood are spot on for a Jedi.
And of course he loves his lightsaber.
B was an awesome rebel fighter. I love the orange color on her.
A closer view.
And the star, A as Rey! I cannot believe A is already 5'3" and can wear my UGG boots, which were perfect for her costume.
David made her staff and he did such a great job.
I was the Millennium Falcon.
I tried to order earrings off Amazon but the company kept sending me the wrong ones. And then I found a super awesome hair clip on Etsy but it didn't arrive in time, it was sent late. My shirt was suppose to glow-in-the-dark but it did not. And yet, it worked!
And David as Qui-Gon.
I bought the blue and green lightsabers from the Disney Store and they are awesome. I love the realistic sound effects, lights and how they can be used in a battle together. Kuddos Disney!
The kids at the festival. Baby G is asleep in his stroller.
We had a ton of fun. This was a super fun promise to see fulfilled. A continues to do well on her burn recovery. We are still taking it day by day. We were set back a bit as far as daily care when she broke her left wrist a few weeks ago at youth group. However, one huge blessing is that the hypertrophic areas under her cast are becoming super flat! That is a consistent prayer of ours for all her burns. That's it for now. May the Force Be With You!
