Our 4- year old daughter loves princesses so we decided to give her a new spin on that idea and introduced her to Star Wars. She wanted to be Darth Vader for Halloween but decided that idea wasn’t “pretty” enough and asked to be Pink Darth Vader. In her mind, it was 1/2 bride (another obsession of hers is weddings) and 1/2 Darth Vader. She was adamant that she needed a bouquet (which I incorporated into the light saver) and a veil (floor-length, of course).
A boys’ black Darth Vader costume was up cycled into Pink Darth Vader. I used several bottles of pink paint to alter the mask, chest piece, and belt. She got lots of high fives from neighborhood dads. All the neighborhood kids seemed impressed by her mask and she used the pink light saver as a flashlight. She was very well received.
Thank you @Taryn Kay for this picture ... I Have to keep my girl away from pinterest otherwise the cat idea will be out, and the pink darth vader costume will be in ;)
Angela, there is nothing wrong with you or your parenting. ALL big brothers must suffer through taking their little sisters trick-or-treating. It’s part of being a big brother and would have been embarassing regardless of costume choice. Now, please tell me where you got the pink Darth Vader treat bucket.
