Adventures in Costuming

So, my son comes home and announces this past weekend that he has a report due in his Bible class and will have to make his presentation about his report "in costume" on Friday.
Ok. No worries. I can whip something up to match his chosen person from the Bible, Nehemiah.
Yeah, right! That was before he announced last night - at 8pm - that he was wrong and the report was due today and he needs his costume by tomorrow. OY VAY! So, off to Wal-Mart I ventured to buy the fabric.
Tonight I cut and sewed (without a pattern I might add) and this is what we came up with...

I'm not so sure that he looks like Nehemiah. I think I may have accidentally made a Jedi Warrior costume from Star Wars... But, hopefully his Bible teacher won't make that connection!

When I saw it on facebook, I must admit Star Wars came to mind....although I think the Star Wars costumer must've gleaned inspiration from the Bible....so the lines are a little blurry anyway.

Good luck Nehemiah!

My mother in law has the same sewing in a pinch talent. JJ is very lucky to have such a wonderful and understanding mom.

Looks great to me, I would probably have thrown a sheet over my kid. Draped it a little and put a rope around the waist and called it done.
