Use the force Luke...
...or as we say in this house "Use the fork Lewis".
We have a birthday in the house later this week. Max is completely OCD over Star Wars right now so it's no surprise the theme of his party. He is living and breathing Luke Skywalker so I hunted around online for a good costume (I would love to make a costume but I'm trying to be realistic here). Anyway, there are two commercially made: cheap and deluxe cheap, that's quality not price (even if you buy it from the US and have it shipped, it's nearly double if you buy it from an Australian costume shop). So I've hatched a plan, whilst I'm not making the entire costume I am making a couple of components and have bought the others. As long as it all works out, all will be revealed in good time.
I was five years old when the first Star Wars hit the big screen, and I got to see it twice! How old were you when you first saw Star Wars?
