I was going to wait until after CV to post pictures of my daughter's Bespin Leia I made for her, but when I tried it on her today ("dress rehearsal"?!) it was too cute to keep to myself!



I made a braid from a hair extension that matches her hair color and glued it together at the center with a hair band. Then, I pulled her own hair into a ponytail, using the extension's hair band. I twisted the ponytail into a bun and got the Bespin style. My daughter's hair is so fine, it doesn't stay very long, but it's cute while it lasts. Smile

I made an "abridged" version of this costume for her since she won't be wearing it long. It doesn't have any embroidery, only dye pen and it only has trim in the most noticeable places. But, I'm happy with it.

Lori, when are you planning on wearing yours? That would be cute to get a picture of the two of you together.

I was planning to have her wear that when I wore my snow speeder which will be Thursday and Friday (snow speeder guard duty), so that might work out. We'll all be at the snow speeder Friday starting at 3:30, if you want to catch us there.

She was very pleased when I had her put her costume on. She kept giggling. Smile I think it helps that Leia is a princess...she's all about princesses! Wink

Awwww she's so cute and I love the costume great job!

I don't have any little ones of my own but my husband has two teenage sons that also enjoy conventions and costuming and we have such a great time working on costumes with them! I love seeing families do fun things together like this!
