Costumes... Check!

Alllllllrighty. We're ready for the big day/night. (Technically we're not actually ready, but at least we have a plan.)

Cooper has decided that he is going to be a storm trooper. And yes, he gets how funny it is that Cooper rhymes with trooper. This was a long road, please. In the course of a few months he has gone from wanting to be a LEGO block, to Darth Vader, to Darth Maul (whateverthehellthatis?!?!), to Spiderman, to.... drum roll please... A Storm Trooper. Each time he changed his mind he was very frank about it. He just up and said, "I've changed my mind. I actually want to be --fill in the blank--."

Mason's costume is really giving me heartburn. He is in love with Buzz Lightyear and Woody (from Toy Story). I thought we would easily convince him to be one of those. Then he got a great Iron Man suit. He loves that one, but wears it nearly every day. But when I ask him what he wants to be for Halloween -- because after all, Halloween isn't everyday -- he starts breathing heavy. That's Darth Vader, right? We have a saber, and a mask, but I will be making a Darth Vader robe in a size 24 months. Seriously.

So, can't waste time online. It's off to the sewing room I go.

PS -- I also got a Darth Vader candy bucket. Has anyone seen a Storm Trooper candy bucket? Is there such a thing?

I am blown away by these elaborate costumes to be worn by my grandchildren for Halloween. What ever happened to a pair of foot PJ's and a stupid little hood with ears on it?
I love them...Hey, does Cooper know he could be in Idaho Falls' Fourth of July parade as a Storm Trooper. There are a block of them marching every year!
Won't they be cute together...Grandpa would be jealous...Hey? Grandpa is hairy enough (on his body that is) he could go as Chewie!

I think it's awesome that they'll were such detailed costumes, masks and all. I can't wait to show Crew these pictures he's going to love them.

It's funny that I'm reading your blog post right now, as Adam and I have Star Wars on TV right now. Your kids are so cute with their costumes!
