Star Wars dress up – may the force be with you

Top on the list of things Flo loves  are Star Wars, fancy dress, and cakes – so what better than a Star Wars fancy dress kids’ party?  I’ve found some really excellent home made costumes out there, so I thought I’d share them with you.

This one is just classic, eh?  It’s just the ticket for all those Little Miss Vaders out there hoping to catch the eye of their Prince Charming at the ball!

If the Dark Side is not for you,  there’s always Luke Skywalker, the epitome of the Light Side (or a blummin’ goody two shoes, depending on your viewpoint).  It’s a nice easy costume to put together and is very effective.  Follow the link at the foot of this post to full instructions on how to make it – easy!

Luke Skywalker

We mustn’t go forgetting the robot contingent of the Empire – we don’t want to be the target of accusations of droidism!  So here’s an R2D2 costume, but one with a difference (are you getting the sense that I have a liking for tutus?)

I think it’s just brilliant, and if it wasn’t for the fact I myself am more Jabba than Leia, I’d be wearing this costume to my next fancy dress myself.

Last but not least, I am breaking form and sneaking in a wee Dr Who number, because it would be criminal not to share this Dalek dress.  I reckon it could just as easily be made with a round neck and teamed with brown pants for a boy, too.

I hope these have given you some inspiration and raised a smile or two – now go and create something fabulous!

Live long and prosper…
