Princess Leia and Ninja Boy: Halloween 2011

costume, dress up, halloween | 3 comments

I have been wanting Madeline to be Princess Leia from Star Wars for Halloween for the past couple of years because she has the PERFECT hair. Long, brown, and thick. Now her hair is about down to the waist of her pants and perfect for the Leia style buns.

I found this adorable Princess Leia Dress on Etsy. For girls without long, thick hair the seller offers a head piece with the Leia buns.

She got lots of comments on how cute she was and how great her hair looked. I must say, I was pretty proud of how the whole thing turned out myself. Now that Halloween is over, I’m ready to get her hair trimmed a couple of inches. As beautiful as her hair is, it is a ton of work and requires so much attention or else it can easily turn into a big mess.

We taught Madeline to say “Help me Obi-Wan Kanobi. You’re my only hope.” throughout the night and it was really cute!

I really, really wanted Logan to be Luke Skywalker, so he and Madeline could go as a matching pair, but he had his own ideas this year. He wanted to be a Japanese Ninja after doing a report on Japan for International Children’s day at school.

This was the closest costume that I could find that he approved of. I don’t even know if those are Japanese characters or not, but he didn’t mind. He made a really cute Ninja and had plenty of energy for his Ninja moves.

We had a fun Halloween this year! Next year I want to get my act together and dress up with the kids.

Did you have a fun Halloween this year? Do you dress up?

    Cute! I made a black angry bird costume for my 4 year old son. I tried to talk my hubby into getting a couple blue vests & putting POLICE on one and WRITER on the other to be Castle and Beckett, but he didn’t go for it. Maybe next year!

    Aww, her hair is gorgeous, and both outfits turned out great. I had long, thick hair as a kid and it was so much work. I was thankful to have experienced it and all, but I’ll never go back to keeping it that long because it’s so much easier having it shorter (not even short short, but simply not super long).
