Ben Kenobi

made this in five hours - the light saber was the deciding factor in making this costume it seems - I'd already invested in the red pleather which was to be Astroboy's boots, but it was the fascination with the light saber that made Adolfo's heart yearn to wield the force on Halloween night. Halloween is no longer mine at this age, so I submitted and found a new use for an old curtain. I'm glad I didn't force him to be what I'd already planned for him. He had the best time. You can't see it here, but I used scraps to make knee high boots for this outfit. I'm pretty proud of the outcome.

He looks happy as a bumblebee! I love that the things we thought were cool at that age are still cool to Adolpho. Great outfit too!!

man
halloween is not halloween until you've spent it with a seven year old
that boy was ALL OVER THE PLACE
so happy with his light saber
he WAS Ben Kenobi!
Don't ever doubt that, he will remind you!
His favorite thing was that the cloak would swell open with the wind as he ran
he loved it!
Paola finally got the hang of the Max outfit too
she finally understood that she was MAX and really got into it
it was great because when people saw her they would say, "Oh, a bunny! :-D" and then would become confused upon noticing the wolf tail.
I think it was mainly because she's a girl that they saw her as a bunny first
haha
she corrected the,
"No, I'm Max Records."
