Oh my goodness, the Halloween excitement recently grew exponentially at my house when we got a box of Halloween goodness from Party City! We’ve decided on a Star Wars family theme this year and the boys are ridiculously excited! Like, so excited that they ask to wear their costumes every day. In fact, Big Brother just asked to wear his for picture day at school! Hilarious! Just look at them! If you’ve been around the blog long, you know I’m a big fan of DIY Halloween costumes (like the parrot costume). However, with Baby Brother and everything else going on, the thought of hand making five different Star Wars costumes was just too much–I would have needed to start making them about the time Baby Brother was born! But, Party City came through though with a great selection of Star Wars costumes (they even have Jawa and Jabba the Hut options!). We ended up with a couple of Jedi, Yoda, Han Solo, and Leia! True to store-bought “one size fit” costumes, there are a few sizing issues (like my belt is too small, Big Brother’s is too big, & at 6’4″, Mr. Mom Endeavors’ is a bit taller than the average Han Solo). So, I’ll be doing a few DIY tweaks & accessory creating to make them even more fun. But, overall, they’re great for what we wanted. If I get really crafty, I might make the boys some Jedi robes to go with. But even if not, I think they look great in their costumes! They’ve already mastered the art of Jedi posing!And, let’s not forget Baby Brother. Although I’m a little sad that we won’t be donning the lobster costume that his big brothers did, he makes a stinkin’ adorable Yoda! He’s already getting into character! 😉To see all of us all decked out together, you’ll have to come back for the Halloween recap post. Then, we’ll see how well Mr. Mom Endeavors and I managed to pull off Han & Leia! 🙂 In the meantime, we’re continuing with lots of Halloween fun this month. In addition to our great costume finds at Party City, I also got some Halloween party supplies for another a fun Halloween-themed playdate party! Are you planning any Halloween parties or do you still need some costume items? Party City has lots of great options and is giving you a chance to go shopping…WIN IT!
