They will capture you with cuteness! But not with spears. My children find weapons enough on their own without me handing them any.
So half of my kid sewing idols have this thing they do called Sew Geeky. It's run by Max California and Sew Chibi who are basically the rock stars of the geeky sewing world. (Some of my other favorite kid sewing bloggers are things like Sanae Ishida or MADE, with much simpler, classic styles. I'm not sure what that says about my fashion sense. Hopefully the mix works? lol)
Sew Geeky is exactly what it sounds like: a geeky theme is announced and we all make something that fits the bill. Obviously we're all about Star Wars this month. (I'm sure at least one person out there went "May the 4th be with you to you...)

As far as my kids were concerned these were just a new addition to the dress up box. No fancy clasps they had to do up. Not too hot to wear in summer. Just some wonky old pillowcases made out of jersey and some scrap pieces from the elephant rug.
Ok, so he kind of looks like a Jedi baby with bear ears in this one. Guess one size doesn't fit all :)
Look! It even has a hooded cape option if you get sick of this game and shove Mommy's silly hat thing off of your head so that you can see properly!

I will admit that it's kind of amusing to dress my children in cultural references they don't understand. I do my best to brainwash them with an age appropriate level of geeky-ness though. I figured I'd done my job as a parent when Sophie asked for a Totoro birthday party, complete with catbus and birthday dress! I'll share, I promise. You'll probably have to wait until next Friday though, since I've been dying to give you a sneak peek at one of my belly dancing costumes first!
