Post your costumes, your kids costumes, or your costume ideas.

The Xhonzi's are going, appropriately, Star Wars this year!

I am going as Dagobah Luke with my 3 month old son ("Baby Yoda") in my blue burlap backpack.

My 6 year old son is going as Darth Vader, except for at school and church where masks aren't allowed so he's going there as "Luke's vision of his own face under the mask of the phantom Darth Vader."

My 4.5 year old daughter is going as CinnamonBun Leia.

My 3 year old daughter is going as RD22 (Ardee-Tutu).  Get it.  Tu-tu?  This is actually pretty cute, she calls him "Ardeetoo" and when the older kids tell her it's "R2-D2", she says, "No, I'm not Ardee-Tutu, I'm Ardeetoo!"

And my wife... it's come to attention that there is a dearth of good female characters in the Original Trilogy.  So... she's going as Hanna Solo.  Or "Generic Female Smugler of the Star Wars Universe."  Or, since she's wearing a red wig... and we've been reading Zahn's trilogy for her first time... Mara Jade.

Anyways, we have them all done because we had our first halloween party last weekend.  I'll have to post some pictures when we get some good ones.

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

"They're my movies." -George Lucas. 19 people won oscars for their work on Star Wars (1977) and George Lucas wasn't one of them.

Your family sounds awesome.  Does your 6 year old truly understand the whole "Luke's vision of his own face under the mask of the phantom Darth Vader" or does he think he just isn't wearing a mask? ;-)  Would love to see pictures, especially of Baby Yoda LOL

We're wearing our Ren Faire costumes my wife made over the summer (a preview pic from the faire we made it for):

It Won't Shrink!

We spent a lot of time and money on making those outfits to not wear them!

We've done Star Wars in the past, in fast shortly after we started dating (2004):

Nice!

Yeah, Gideon (the six year old) is pretty Star Wars savvy, but I'm sure the meaning of the scene is completely lost on him.  I came up with the Phantom Darth Vader bit, but I'll have to ask him if he thinks he could be that or if he is simply Darth Vader missing his mask.

P.S. Just have your wife clip a lightsabre to her steinbelt and I think you're good to go!

My wife and I are having epic battles over whether our six month old is going to be pro wreslter Samoa Joe or a bumblebee.

It might tear apart our marriage.

 At first I couldn't decide who wanted what... but then I realized you said "...a bumblebee."  I first read it as "BumblebeeTM."

The xhonzi's were having a hard time deciding what to do for Halloween this year...

Ultimately rejected ideas were:
He-Man, She-Ra, Skeletor (w/chainsaw hand), Evil Lynn, Orko, and Baby He-Man
Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Chipettes and Dave (w/chainsaw hand)
Rocky and Bullwinkle (w/chainsaw hand) and Boris and Natasha and ??? and ???
Transformers (one with a chainsaw hand)

But we somehow settled on:
Leonardo, Michelangelo, Rainbow (new "pink" female turtle) and Diamond (new "purple" female turtle).  Oh, and Mrs. Xhonzi is going to be April O'Neal and I will be Shredder (no chainsaw hand... how did that happen?)  I wanted to be Krang and make my 15 month old be the little pink squishy head, and I could be the big dumb robot... but my wife thinks that would have worked better last year.  :(

Leonardo?  I say trash that thought and go with Struttin' Leo.

I'll make the suggestion to my 7 year old that he swagger a little bit, if it'll make you happy.

I was a Jawa in the 4th Grade.  There is no photographic evidence.

Swagger ain't strut, but I'll take what I can get.

This year I think we're going back to our Asian costumes, my wife as a geisha, me as a ninja. I wanted to be a Star Trek Red Shirt, but my wife pointed out that the high schoolers whose dance we are supposed to be chaperoning already think I'm a Super Nerd.

I'm just bummed that I won't be able to have my ninja sword with me at the school!

My team at work did 'corporate ninjas' a couple years back.   We wore shiny black shirts, black slacks and red 'ninja-sash like ties' but I think we just looked like TGIFridays waiters with ninja hoods on.  Also, the ninja hoods we got at the store looked like burkas.

But I was able to wear my plastic sword to work.  And wear my face obscuring mask, which is a little odd given the high security environment in which I work.

I'm wearing this: http://www.mcphee.com/shop/product_images/y/778/12027__42033_zoom.jpg

I just need to find something to wear it with. I'm thinking of finding a Pee Wee Herman suit to go with it.

http://Instructables.com is a good website for the rest of you Halloween Do-it-Yourselfers.  It's also just a darn good website.

Great picture!  Except that the photog cut off my backpack... which HAD MY BABY SON IN IT!

As a bonus, here is the year before:
