Continuing on a Star Wars theme.....Clone trooper costume

The boys got some really cool star wars lego for Christmas: the T6 Jedi Shuttle which I've detailed here if you're interested, the Mandalorian battle pack, Ewok attack, and a beautiful Star Wars Lego mini-figure encyclopedia.

Oh, and two lego Heroica games, which I've written about here if you want to know how much fun they are.

Yup, it was all about Star Wars and Lego in our house two months ago.

So what to do next but decide you want to BE part of Star Wars Lego?

A Clone trooper, specifically.

The headpiece is made from an old style cloth nappy with the appropriate shape cut out of it.
(Didn't tell the boy it was an old nappy or he never would have worn it, bit fussy that way...)

We then cut some black fabric and hot glued it in place behind the cut out section. Wrapped it around his head and pinned it with a big ol' safety pin at the back. As far as being able to see out....well apparently that's not so important.

Add to that your karate duds and a blaster made from clipped together felt pens, and there you have it.

And this one is a snow trooper.....we've graduated to a homemade wooden blaster here...
(Big brother orchestrated this outfit so is giving us a detailed explanation of every piece)

Can't for the life of me remember what version of trooper this one was meant to be....

As I write, lego is all over the lounge floor, on the dining table, on the floor beside Mr 3's bed and lego Han Solo is keeping me company at my computer.

Birthdays are approaching and guess what they're both asking for?

Yep, we are overrun and about to be more so.

Star Wars fans........R2D2 secret storage box

I saw these little guys on Filth Wizardry  and just knew my boys would love them.

All made from stuff we have stashed around the place: toilet rolls, half of a couple of plastic eggs, popsicle sticks, old jar lids and a printable from the Filth Wizardry site.

Now, my boys don't really want to be bothered with all the tiny little details, they just want to get their guys made and in use.

So, if you want to see R2D2 in all his detailed glory, do hop on over to Filth Wizardry and see what they've made over there.

The tops pop off to make the storage area, just right for keeping all those small treasures safe.

Not that my boys really need more places to keep their junk treasure....
