Halloween Costume: Ewok5:00 AM
I had planned for him to be Gus Gus at 6 months right when he was born a huge fat baby.
Last year, I was excited to make him the Max wolf costume from the book: Where the Wild Things Are.
Making my kid's halloween costume is a big deal to me. I don't care if it's totally amazing, the Gus Gus was made with an old t-shirt and other scraps.
I just want to make a creative costume you wouldn't see at Walmart or find on Amazon.
But I had such a hard time this year thinking of what he would be. He's 2 1/2, so I only have a few more years of total control before the kid has an opinion on what he wants to be.
But my husband thought no one would know he's willow and assume he's a hobbit from Lord of the Rings.
So I thought about it, and ended up going with the main Ewok from Return of the Jedi. It's actually the same actor, Warwick Davis. He played the ewok at age 11 in Star Wars, then worked with Lucas again when he made Willow. I think Warwick was 18 or something when he was Willow. Anyway, still Warwick, but not Willow.
Right in the beginning he grabbed this huge tree branch to put in the water. I was surprised he could lift and carry it.
