These are two lil munchkins dressed up as R2-D2 and C-3P0 at the recent Star Wars Celebration V. Also seen in the background is their mother, wearing a custom 'Droid Factory' t-shirt. Not sure how I feel about that.
The base of the dresses is sewn using New Look pattern # 6878. It's a quick and easy pattern that I make for my girls for every holiday and event. The dresses were then embellished with puff paint. That's right, the same thing we all used when we were 10 years old to paint on everything, it is one of my favorite craft supplies. A little felt here and there for R2's panel, and finished the outfits off with little bow head bands from the left over fabric.
I wore a shirt that I embellished with some iron on glitter letters and glitter covered felt silhouettes of R2 and 3PO that read "Droid Factory" (quite appropriate with the two kids and another baby on the way) and my husband rounded off the family ensemble with a shirt that read "These aren't the droids you're looking for."
Ah yes, New Look pattern #6878, one of muh personal faves. Used it on this little floral number I made for myself. The one I'm wearing commando right now.F*** I have some hairy legs. You see that? *flashes* BOOYA -- CANNOT BE UNSEEN!
Hit the jump for one more shot of the whole fam standing in a life-size Boba Fett action figure box.
