Ky-Lou Ren :: Crafting Con

May 3, 2016

CraftingCon

One of my favorite discoveries was a group called “Crafting Con“.  Which consists of (mostly) women who are incredibly talented in sewing/creating AND are huge fangirls of all the nerdy things that I love.  It’s the best.

Along with Crafting Con comes a friendly competition, which started in April and continues throughout the rest of the year.  Each month has a different deliciously nerdy theme.  Guess which one I RAN to the computer to sign up for?  You betcha: STAR WARS.

I really wanted to make something from The Force Awakens, and step outside of the creative box a little.  The movie is still new-ish enough that there haven’t been a ton of outfits created from it yet, and I wanted to challenge myself.  (Why do I always want to challenge myself?  Whyyyyy?)

Louis LOVES Kylo Ren.  I should honestly be worried.  But I think he just likes how badass and brooding he can be.  Which is the opposite of my sweet, happy boy…so it’s fun to pretend.  But picking a character that basically wears all black and then creating a non-costume version of it?  Boy, I apparently wanted to torture myself, rather than challenge.

I used the Patterns for Pirates YoHo Henley as a base for the entire top.  You can read more about the actual details of this “Ky-Lou Ren” outfit on my Crafting Con debut HERE.

My favorite pictures from the shoot are super silly…and were suggested by Louis.  How could a kiddo pretending to be Kylo Ren resist that epic scene between Kylo and Han Solo?  These boys.  I love them so much.  Even if Louis is totally taking out his Daddy.

I had a blast being able to stretch my creative wings for this.  And I feel like I’ve successfully added to Lou’s closet of wearable dressup clothes.
