Star Wars: The Force Awakens Movie Party

In this post: The Force Awakens games, food, costumes, art, and our parody video. Please join us :).

Hello dear ones! I’m so excited to share this post with you. I will admit that I was never a fan of the original Star Wars movies. My husband and eldest son love them. I really enjoyed the new Star Wars movie though. The Force Awakens was refreshing. It felt kid friendly. The characters Rey and Kylo Ren intrigue me, and I can’t wait to see their back stories. I have my theories. The hubby and I have made a bet on one of them.

Anywho, we bought the DVD for Michael’s birthday. I promised him I’d put together a movie party awhile back. So I threw this one together in a day and a half. There’s a ton of inspiration online to pull from. I’m thrilled to share…but first, here is our parody video. We’ve never done anything like this before. It’s short but fun.

We had to get in character for the party. If you’ve followed me long you know we like to dress up. By the way, you can find my other groovy parties up top under the party menu.

  • I dressed the part of Rey. It wasn’t a hard costume. I just put on neutral colors and tried to get her hairstyle.

We had to have BB-8 somehow. So I made a…

  • BB-8 Necklace ~I used fake pearls, and Sharpies.

  • Michael as Kylo Ren ~ We found the shirt at Target. The cape was made by Chris’ Mom several years ago for Halloween when Michael was Darth Vader.

  • Chalkboard Art~ I outlined the silhouette of Kylo Ren & Rey’s fight scene.

We started making peg dolls but we only finished BB-8. I’ll update if I finish Kylo Ren and Rey.
