    IMG_1324.JPG Here is my Halloween Costume. I'm threatening my kids with wearing it to opening night!
    I bought the shoes and purse today at Payless Shoes, used about 3 yards of muslin split lengthwise for the vest thingy, and about a yard of gauze for both the arm wraps and the scarf. I dyed the arm wraps with grey Rit dye on the stove top. Also, I have a walking staff but I can't hold that and take a selfie!
    I already had the pants & t-shirt. All told, it was about $60.

    6' 3"? That's a bit of fabric!

    I think I'll go back and get some gauze for the long vest. When I see Rey in the trailers, I realize the muslin is just a little too stiff. Also going to re-dye the arm wraps with tea, they are too bluish.

    My sis says I look like an ISIS fighter- I think she needs to watch the news more. It's desert-like, but not modern. I have a staff, not an AK-47.

    I've done quite a bit of cosplaying, but for some reason never Star Wars. I'd really like to... But, all of you who did are awesome. :)

    So a little update on my costume, I used a pair of safety glasses and hot glued gauze around the rim & arms then cut out the little triangle shaped Storm-trooper goggle-sized holes. (The effect would have been better with sunglasses but I intended to use them at night outside). Then I used a black magic marker to make the "rivets". Next year I'll have time to put a little brown rim of something around the edges to look more like Rey's. There's a huge amount of detail in Rey's goggles, the length the costume makers go to is insane!

    When I get time, I'll put the whole thing back on and take another pic. I learned to put the arm wraps on last! They fall off. There must be elastic in the real deal, I've got to figure out what that fabric is- maybe Ace bandages?

    Anyway, the block party was a lot of fun. One guy I didn't know hollered out "Awesome Dune costume!" I didn't have the heart to set him straight, we nerds get so little affirmation as it is! There was a Stormtrooper there in full regalia doing photo ops with the kids. I wish we had a Star Wars cosplay club around here, but I bet there isn't one for 500 miles in any direction. I should have asked the Stormtrooper, but hey- he's my enemy! I hid!(lightsaber)
