Positively Creative: BooBahBlue Made Us Custom Star Wars Halloween Costumes

Positively Creative: BooBahBlue Made Us Custom Star Wars Halloween Costumes

Confession: We are OBSESSED with anything that has a theme and Halloween is on the top of that obsession list in this house.

As many of you have seen from my Instagram story antics, Johnny has ventured deep into a love of Star Wars this year. When he has imaginary play he’s starred in almost every role. Yet the only title he has given to his little sister without fail every single time is the role of Jabba the Hutt. 😆 It stuck. So much so that he asked if Coco could be Jabba the Hutt for Halloween. HOW COULD I SAY NO?  The visualization I had of me pulling a wagon with a sitting infant in a big ball of green made me howl. DONE. We’ll pay for her therapy later.
