I know it is early, but I am trying to find Star Wars costumes for my kids.I have found some for my oldest, but I can't find any for my twins in their size, which is 18 months. Does anyone know of a good web site or catalog for Star Wars costumes? Thanx for your help.

I looked last year for my daughter when she was 2 and could not find anything starwars for kids under size 4T. I know it sounds rough and I don't mean to offend but StarWars.com has the costumes for dogs. I bought one for my Dog and there is a chance that you could make some modifications that might help you fit it to the size you need. Just a thought :laugh:

Ebay would probably be your best bet. Or just search google relentlessly.

At Wal-Mart we just started getting in our costumes, and among some of the boxes to arrive, I saw a Rubies Vader costume. I didn't get to look at the overall quality of the costume as it was still boxed up, but I would imagine if you looked at Wal-Marts website, you might find something there.

I'll be a Stormtrooper or a Tusken Raider.

Vader68, at my place of employment (The Oriental Trading Company) i have seen several Star Wars Halloween costumes and accessories. Heres the link to the second page that pops up once Star Wars is punched into the "search" bar:OTC (http://www.orientaltrading.com/otcweb/application?No=12&D=star+wars&event=button.search&Dx=mode%2bmatchallpartial&namespace=search&Ntx=mode%2bmatchallpartial&Ntt=star+wars&N=0&origin=searchMain.jsp&Ntk=all)

Ive seen a children and adult Vader costumes, gloves, lightsaber, and voice boxes. They also carry a child and adult Jedi Robe, Obis lightsaber, and i even seen a little Vader costume for toddlers/babies (ones that cant walk yet) while working. I dont see those on the website but im sure if you call they can explain what all theyve got.

EDIT: Try "Darth Vader" in the search bar for the gloves and voicebox and the little toddler costume. "Halloween costumes" bring up what all theyve got: from Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Power Rangers, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and all kinds of other stuff.

And I may or may not be Napoleon himself. Lots of people say I kind of look like him (slam or compliment? you decide) and I can do a pretty good impression of him too. I was going to be him last year but I was nastily sick so that didn't work out. And as I already have the shirt all I need is a fro wig, glasses, and maybe dancin' boots.

For those of you with kids, check your local Targets because just today i seen a couple of cool kiddie costumes. They had a Darth Vader, Anakin, and 501st Clone costume. I may buy my younger brother a Clone one for next year (hes already got an idea of what he wants to be this year) because i think he would like it. Plus, its hard to say whether we will be seeing anymore Star Wars costumes in the near future, so it may be a good idea to get some while its possible.

I'd love to be Napoleon only because I'm overly tall, skinny as heck, and because I have wicked bo staff skills.:bandit:

Star Wars shop had costumes in the sizes you are looking for. They have Vader, Chewie, Yoda, and Leia

I noticed Star Wars baby outfits (T's and bodysuits) at Hot Topic the other day.

I saw a pretty cool looking blue Clone Trooper costume at Wal-Mart the other day, but it was for pre-teens.

That pic is waaaay old, man! I think it is from 2002 or so (when I was 12), and I've grown a lot since then. I still look like that, but older, you know? I'm 6'5" and 175 lbs, so fairly skinny but not disgustingly so.

My skills are more in the nunchuck department. ;) :D

I saw a kid's Darth Vader costume at Wal-Mart, it had a sculpted rubber; chestplate, control panel and belt control boxes. They were very nicely detailed and painted as well, no paint slop or anything. Kids are spoiled these days. :beard:

Back in my Kindergarten or first grade years, my mom sewed a rabbit suit for both my brother and I. I was a white rabbit, and my brother was a grey rabbit. They were very cool, and I will always remember that costume, because my mom made them for us, and I'll also remember when I could no longer fit in the white rabbit costume, and my younger brother could. I was so :cry: :( because I loved that costume. Now days you can go out and buy a kid a costume, thank God, because I can't sew buttons on my underwear, let alone sew a whole costume, not that my son will be dressing up this year. :twisted:
