Thrift your way to a Star Wars costume
By Sarah Carlson,
Star Wars is a crowd favorite at any time of year, so it only seems fitting that many kids (and let’s be honest, adults too) want to be part of the action this Halloween!
What better way to get in on the fun than to dress as your favorite Star Wars character this year? Here’s a few ways to make it happen on a budget:
Yoda – To create a DIY Yoda costume, you only need a few pieces. Grab a dark brown long-sleeve shirt and matching pants (dark brown pants or leggings). You’ll need a long white/off-white sweater or light coat, even a lab coat would work for this. Lastly for clothing, you’ll need a rope to use for a belt. To get the trademark green head with ears, you can find a green stocking cap or use face paint – then add on green construction paper (or if you’re crafty, sew on green felt) to create the ears! And don’t forget a walking stick or staff!
