This year, Star Wars Costumes. I am being Darth Vader, my older daughter is being Ashoka, the younger daughter R2D2 and my husband is being Obi One. Twice now I have gone back to the drawing board with his Jedi costume and now I think we finally both love it. It is a combination of thrift stores and Costume SuperCenter.
- Tan pant
- Tan long sleeve shirt, I bought a button up but you could use any variety
- 2.5 yards of muslin
- wide brown belt
- Jedi Robe
- Light Saber
- Fake Hair or wig
- Hair clip
After looking and looking for hooded Jedi robe patterns, I decide to purchase that part of the costume and I am so glad I did. The robe is absolutely perfect. It has the wide sleeves and a great length. It is light weight, so it doesn't get too hot, but it isn't see through either. It is the perfect combination. I love the material it is made out of, I had planned on using a smooth material and this isn't smooth, it really seems like the kind of material you expect a Jedi cloak to be made out of.
We also picked up a light saber, since I am no Jedi and can't make my own. It matched the costume perfectly and completes the ensemble. If the Dark Side is more you thing you can also pick up a Darth Vader or Storm Trooper costume too!
