May the 4th be with You ~ 2015

This took a bit of planning.  First I found an image of Princess Leia's blaster, saved file and opened in Illustrator.  I created a template to copy and then printed it full size on 8.5 x 11 paper.  Then I glued it to 1/2" thick black foam core and cut it out with an x-acto blade.  It was very rough and too thin.  I think I will work on the template to be a bigger gun that's shown other movie images if we repeat this pose again.

The outfit is just a sheet that's wrapped around her and fastened with safety pins in the back.   We did our best to match the following pose.  I think a bigger blaster would definitely be better.

For dinner we made Bantha Burgers, Tattoine Tots, Yoda Soda and Tie Fighter cookies for dessert

Apologies to the rest of the Molder Clan for not including you visually in this post.  Sam was holding the white foam core behind Charlotte and Violette was running around the yard in her diaper.  Evie was clinging to dad as she always does and everyone but Evie enjoyed the Tie Fighter cookies, they are just so cute and fun to eat. 

Tie Fighter Cookie Recipe
  • 4 bags of 100 calorie snack packs of Oreo Thin Crisps (Aldi has a generic brand)
  • White Chocolate chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
Open two bags of cookies and lay them on a tray.  Melt 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips in the microwave in two 30 second intervals, stir.  Glue the marshmallow to the cookie with the melted white chocolate.  We used a paintbrush.  Open 2 remaining bags and glue the tops on.
