Step 2

Tape an empty toilet paper roll perpendicular to the end of an empty paper towel roll and spray paint it black. This will be Han's gun.

Step 1

Wear a long white dress as the base of this costume. To make, Leia's silver belt, cut two strips of duct tape, each long enough to fit around your waist, plus 2 inches. Stick one on top of the other (sticky sides together) and wrap it around your waist. Secure the ends together with a smaller piece of duct tape.

Step 2

Cut eight pieces of duct tape, each 1 inch long. Fold each of them in half, sticky sides together, and attach them to a silver chain. Leave about 1/2 inch in between each square of duct tape. This forms the necklace.

Step 3

Using green construction paper, cut out two pieces in the shape of Yoda's ears (see image). Glue the wider end of each ear to a green headband. Pull apart several cotton balls and glue the material onto the inside of the front of the ears so that it looks like white ear hair.
