Tackle it Tuesday - Halloween costume

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This week has been busy, to say the least, with looking for a job, I'm really trying to organize around here, but this week has been spent making Kid Jedi's costume. For Halloween, he'll be...a Jedi, Luke Skywalker to be specific. We went and looked at the costumes they were selling, and I didn't like them. I couldn't justify spending $40 for a costume made of cheap polyester when I could make it myself. So for $14, including the pattern, I made this.

The belt is a regular belt, it's a Pirates of the Caribbean Disney belt, but it's what he wanted to wear (and we already had it). This is Kid Jedi after Trick or Treating at Adventure Aquarium, they do a free trick or treat night (2 actually) each year for passholders.

This is what I've been tackling, let us know what you are tackling and check out 5MFM to see what others are tackling.

What a great idea to make it yourself (and it's probably way better quality than what you would have purchased for 3 x as much money!). He looks adorable!

You did such a great job. I made a Princess Leia costume for my daughter last year. It was my first time ever sewing from a pattern. I used an angel pattern. It was horrible. I was up until the wee hours of the morning for several nights...but I got it done and she loved it. I think you did a fantastic job!! Way to go!
