1. Nathan JrHe wore the braid! He wore the braid!
I made the tunic using Simplicity pattern 5840, which is sized for adults. (I know, HAWT, right? Adult male Jedi costume. I just. . . )
Anyway, you know where this is going, right? I made a smaller version of the tunic and it was waaaaay too big for Nathan Jr.
Solution? Lumpyhead's school costume = Origami Yoda.
I then made another - smaller - one for Nathan Jr, which, as you can probably tell, is almost too small. Awesome.
2. LulaLula was Leia on Bespin, which I guess technically made her a Disney Princess.
I decided the costume was "representative" enough, and gave up on the whole idea. The cloak was more see-through than it appears in the photos; it was the cheapest plain white cotton fabric I could find, which - surprise, surprise - was quite sheer.
3. LumpyheadLumpyhead was Darth Maul, and we totally bought that entire costume for slightly less than I spent on the materials for either of the other two costumes.
I'm an idiot.
