my son is the most adaptable person in the world.
he has wanted to be an star wars stormtrooper since we started talking about hallowe'en this year. you might remember i blogged about it here.
for so many reasons, we arrived at the morning of hallowe'en without a costume. (i even resorted to calling around to see if anyone had any of those, you know, store-bought varieties.)
i'm so glad they didn't.
with 3 hours to spare, one amazingly talented sister, and some *craft supplies* by Rubbermaid (TM), hallowe'en was on!
well, except for the helmet. an authentic-looking PVC helmet can be a very tricky thing to recreate when you have limited access to places like Hollywood.
and i tried. oh, how i tried. but even i had to admit that my sad attempts were just not going to fly for this boy.
so, what does the most adaptable person in the world do when faced with a seemingly unsurmountable problem??
he becomes "han solo dressed up as an imperial stormtrooper [episode IV: a new hope]."
i can take no responsibility for this amazing outfit. all credit goes to the girl who can do it all, my sister, jen. THANK YOU!!
