Before Halloween night though, we had our annual pumpkin carving party. And sticking with the Star Wars theme, I carved the Rebel Alliance symbol into our family pumpkin this year. No one knew what it was though and I began to question all of my relationships.
First of all - this one. He wanted to be Antman for Halloween which I was thrilled about, because out of all of the Avenger characters, Jacob's personality suits him well - funny, crass and when he gets big, he gets BIG. When the outfit arrived, he was a ball of excitement and it quickly unraveled when the Antman mask didn't feel right on his face and he threw it down in tears and rejected the costume all together. I bought a costume for nothing and he was disappointed to boot. So we went with a costume we already had and called it a day.
Tommy told me months ago that he wanted to be Finn for Halloween and if he was Finn, would I be Rey with him? How could I resist?! A bad-ass Jedi with a cool outfit? Yes, please!
If you know me, you know I don't sew. Like at all. Like not even a button on to a shirt. But give me a glue gun, and I can make anything. Including his Finn jacket. I bought a beige jacket and hot glued felt to it to make it look like the jacket from the movie. It was okay, but Tommy thought it was amazing which is all that really matters. It was hot glued with love.
And because I'm a big kid and I have to make up for all the years I never got to dress up for Halloween.....
