I took off my coat and scarf for the photos, brrr it was cold!  In fact, that's why the photos aren't the best, we snapped a couple then ran for the warm indoors. :o)

If I had been wearing dark tights, I would've worn the dress as it.  With the yellow tights it really showed off how short it was so I layered a skirt for modesty.  This was worn to church after all. :o)

Doctor Who 50th Anniversary

Tardis Socks: Hot Topic

This outfit was completely built around the socks!  I just had to wear them for The Doctor's 50th Anniversary today, and they HAD to be visible!  No way was I wearing these babies under jeans where only I would know of their awesome existence!  I have to say, I felt GREAT in this outfit.  Just great.  I was comfortable, I felt like I was presenting a good representation of "Me" in my appearance, and (bonus) felt pretty dang sexy. :o)

Side note:  I do not feel comfortable in an outfit that is not "Me".

Allons-y Alonzo (Whovians will get that)  :o)

It might just look like I'm standing in the doorway of my porch, but I'm actually in the second story of the house we're building.  It took me a few minutes to work up the nerve to stand in that open door to a straight drop.  Now sitting in the doorway with my legs hanging out was no problem, go figure. :o)   One day a balcony will be there, but for now it made for a fun photo.

This is what I wore two Sundays ago.  I went out of town this last weekend.  The week leading up to our mini trip was crazy busy so that's why I'm just now posting!  I am so blessed to have such a busy life full of adventures!

Let me explain the last photo...I kissed Hubby after he took my photos.  He knew he now had Orange lipstick on his lips, so he grinned and planted one on my cheek.  I had the camera in my hands so I snapped a's a moment I want to remember.  I don't print most of my blog photos, but this one will be printed. :o)

The Force is Strong with this Family

Got permission to include Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker...
I made Leia's dress from 2 XL white tshirts, Her mom made her belt with a cereal box and chrome duck tape, I made her buns with brown fabric attached to a headband.  For Luke all I had to do was cut an XL youth tshirt down the middle then angle around the neck, he's wearing a leather belt, grey pants, and black rubber boots.  I wish you could see the action shots him mom took of him!

She-3PO (Me):
Gold spray in my hair: Walmart
Gold Mineral Powder made into a cream with water on my face
Black Eyeliner crayon on my face: Ulta
Gold Hoops: Gift from Hubby
Gold Sweater and Jeans: Khol's (super clearance)
Gold Wedges: Dillards (clearance, old)

Ewok (Opie):
Hood: Self made
Furry Gloves and Socks: DIY
Sling Shot: Made by Hubby
Spear: Made by me
Horn: In-Laws brought back from Israel

Shirt and Pants: From his drawer :o)

R2D2 (Baby):
Hat and Shirt: Painted by me

Wookie (Hubby):
Brown Shirt, Pants, and Boots: His closet
Duck Tape Bandolier: Brown and Chrome Duck tape stuck right to his shirt :o)
Crossbow: Borrowed from Opie

I had so much fun putting our costumes together.  Opie's Ewok costume was a change in plans.  Originally he was going to be Darth Vader, but after a boy at church asked the Children's Church Director if he could be a scary looking bad guy she asked the kids to please pick "good guys".  She later told me that Darth Vader wasn't scary and she thought it was fine if we still went with that, but I'm one of the teachers and thought we should follow the rules.  So Ewok it was and we were both happy with how it turned out. :o)

I also helped my friend with her daughter's Princess Leia costume and Luke Skywalker costume.  I forgot to get permission to post them on here, so maybe later I'll ask if I can add them.  Her littlest was going to be Yoda until he saw a picture of the costume and said, "No way!" :o)

I decided I was the Halloween Elf this year.  I put together our costumes, helped with my friend's two costumes, helped my Mom with her shirt for her costume, and helped my Mother-in-Law with her hair and added some lettering to her apron.

Guess what!  It took THREE tries to get all that gold makeup scrubbed off my face!!!
