The boots and pants were just black things we already owned. The gloves were as well, though they had white fingertips that I colored black with a permanent marker. I sewed the cape from an old bedsheet that my sister, Janell, was no longer using.
Overall, I think Annie made one killer looking Darth Vader. Pun intended.
Duun Duun Duun Dun da Duuun Dun Da Duuun!
My total cost: Less than $10.
You can buy the mask for $8-12 at a party store or Wal-Mart, so if that cost was included, it would be about $20 to replicate this look if you already own the pants, gloves, and boots like we did.
To match her costume, I slipped on my Yoda pajama shirt. It wasn't very elaborate, but it made her happy.
I think he turned out pretty cute anyway, even sleeping in the brick-filled dump.
My Total Cost: Less than $10.
I love that I was able to put together this adorable costume that didn't wreck my bank account. Get it? Wreck! You know, 'cause it's wre-- nevermind.
Because I'm a dork, I made Paul play along this year as well. He was Sam's counterpart, Fix-It Felix Jr. This outfit mostly consisted of clothes Paul already owned with the exception of the hat and the hammer. Together, they cost about $12. The dang hat alone was $8. I'm still a little salty about that.
Fix-It Felix saved the day. When his glow stick burst, Fix-It Felix rescued him. When he got tangled in his car seat buckles, he screamed for Fix-It Felix. I've created a monster. A cute monster, but a monster nonetheless.
Overall, I'd say this was a successful All Hallow's Eve. To celebrate, here are more pictures of my cuties:
|Don't tell me this isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen.|
|My blue-eyed Rowbabies.|
|Ringing the doorbell with the force.|
|"Smile for the camera, Vader."|
|"Don't tell me what to do, Ralph."|
|If you choke Ralph, he will wreck you.|
