Magdalena as Rey
Magdalena has been planning on being Rey for Halloween since about January. And when I say planning, I mean planning. She literally drew up plans for this costume - what materials she needed, where to source them, etc. She stored them all in a notebook she made out of cardboard.
Here are the plans.
And here is the result!
I think she did a really good job. The cloth (some cheap sheets we bought at Prisma) was white to begin with, and she tea-dyed the pieces (in two batches to get the belt darker than the other parts) herself.
She found the stick outside herself last spring. She added the strap and tape herself.
The only thing I did was fix her hair and sew the looped cloth piece together. Magdalena is so much better at costumes than me. Thank goodness! I'm so proud of my little Rey.
