Look at these happy faces from 1942. Kids love a dress-up don’t they?
The boy’s school is having a dress up day tomorrow, so this post is a bit late as I spent the afternoon putting the finishing touches on a Jedi robe after Number 2 told me he intended to go to school as Master Yoda.
Eeeek! I had to use some serious imagination to make a suitably yoda-ish garment, our town only has a handful of shops, none of which are a fancy dress or a mercer!
Luckily Number 2 already had the appropriate accessories. He has a collection of light sabres to choose from, one of which is identical to the very one that Yoda uses, and a suitably knobbly walking stick that he found in the garden.
Hopefully the robe makes it through the school day, and all the lightsabre battles, undamaged. I am not sure that voluminous veil on the wedding dress below made it home in the same pristine condition it left that morning though!
