Han Solo

For Halloween I wanted to be Han Solo. I found a black vest and blue pants at a shrift store and tailored them to myself. I already had a white button up shirt.

I had to paint the red stripes on the pants sides.

I ordered the blaster online from officialstarwarscostumes.com and had to spray paint it black. I then had to make the holster for it. I got the cute Chewie backpack from eBay.

handbook for the recently deceased

So I’m going to be female Betelgeuse for Halloween and wanted to make a prop/purse so what better than the Handbook for the Recently Deceased.

I found a cardboard book box at Joann Fabrics. I found images, touched them up and made them to fit the size of the book. I printed them on fabric printer paper, ironed heat bond onto the fabric, then ironed it onto the book.

It looks pretty sweet. I made it look like an old book with the iron by heating certain spots longer. Added purse handles and closure. I’m not sure if I want to leave the inside as is or put some padding or something in there..
