Our 7yo was invited to a Jedi party last weekend. Having 2 girls, we panicked when our daughter wanted to dress up for it. We just don’t have any Star Wars dress up clothes or lightsabers in the house at all!
Luckily someone suggested to use a karate outfit, so with a bit of googling, brown dance pants, black boots, a karate outfit and one of my Wifey’s brown belts, she looked quite good! As for the lightsaber, I found articles on the web on how to construct your own out of all sorts of things like reticulation popup heads and stuff. With only 30 minutes to prepare, luckily we had an old wooden sword lying around, so we wrapped that up with wrapping paper. Only later did I realise we had dressed her as one of the “goodies” but given her a red lightsaber which is for the “baddies”!!!
It was funny to hear stories from other parents on dressing their kids. It seemed that the boys in the class were very particular about clothing and era, choosing specific parts from the movies. It seemed that the New Trilogy was the flavour of the day with Anakin from the end of Episode 3 being a favourite with the boys.
