Not to be outdone by Sam's extraordinary AT-ST costume, Ben and Sasha were way into their Return of the Jedi garb. In fact, I think it is possible that in an alternate universe, Benjamin and Alexandra Morningstar actually are Ewoks - they were that good.
Ben fully embraced his Wickett persona, complete with acrobatics and tree climbing. Lots of acrobatics and tree climbing. I am proud to say that his costume was more than up to the challenge - two days full of activity have produced nary a popped seam (there are some sticky patches of fur, but I blame Starburst, not the seamstress, for those).
This may inspire me to do more than one sewing project every four years. Maybe.
And Sasha was the sweetest little Ewok in town, running around in her little fur suit yelling "neep-cha!" and "gan goo!" (thank you) every time her cuteness was rewarded with candy. She was a little unsure about this whole Halloween/costume/trick-or-treat thing in the beginning, but once she began to see the flood of M&M's and Kit Kats heading her way she became a huge fan of the holiday!
One more Sasha "first" to add to the list - what do you think she's going to think of her first Christmas in a couple of months?!?
