Halloween is in the air, and with it comes the hunt for the perfect costume. If you’re looking to nail that mommy and me group costume, let’s just say, we’ve got a few winning ideas. Our fave might just be Leia and Ewok — ’cause Star Wars, obvi, Craft on, BB’s!
Materials and Tools:
- green rain poncho
- white leggings
- brown boots
- gun holster (or high-waisted belt)
- army hat
- brown wig (unless your hair is brown and long enough to braid)
- toy gun
- brown sweat suit
- brown bear hat
- ½ yard brown fabric
Layer the gun holster or belt over the front and under the poncho in the back. Braid either your own hair or your wig to match Leia’s iconic brown braid.
For your little Ewok, cut out two sides of the fabric in the shape of a mini poncho that will go over the little furry animal hat (which we found at a thrift store). We laid the fabric over the hat to outline the shape of the head and mark where the ears were, so we could sew the two pieces together on top and slightly down the sides and then cut out the places for the ears to pop through.
Cut out the face, and then if you want, give your child a stick to play with (be mindful of how quick they swing that thing though!).
