Make way for Little Miss Han Solo!
My oldest son and I have always been huge sci-fi fans. When he was growing up I would reward him for a good report card by buying him Star Wars figures. He would get one figure for each A on his report card.
I made this easy no-sew costume for his daughter using items found at the thrift store. The shirt, pants and vest are regular clothing. I glued a ribbon down the sides of the pants to represent the “blood stripe” on Han’s pants. Using a marker I added stipes to the ribbon.
The blaster belt is made from a brown canvas belt that I glued craft foam on to for embellishments. I painted the details on the blaster belt with a silver sharpie.
The boots were from the thrift store. I needed to spray paint them black because they had silver flowers on the sides that I needed to cover up.
We already owned the toy blaster.
This was a quick easy costume I made to amuse my son with. Also, I enjoy dressing my daughter and granddaughter as strong characters. I want them to know that they are just as capable as men.
