Emperor The Youngest Palpatine

Well hello there!  I'm back after an extended, unplanned and totally needed vacation!  Not a real vacation mind you, just one from the blog.  Life interfered just a bit and threw off my blogging mojo.  Unfortunately, I'm out of the daily writing habit so bear with me as I jump back in. 

Here's something I wanted to share with you.  A few weeks ago, my son's friend had a birthday party.  Make that a Star Wars birthday party.  Well,  The Youngest, being the creative rock star that he is, decided that he could only attend this party if he was allowed to be The Emperor.  I was a little daunted by this task.  I mean, have you seen the Emperor?  His face is wrinkled, craggly, bumpy and just plain ugly!  But out came the face paints and we got to it.

This is what we came up with:  Facepaint + Cape with hood = Instant Emperor Palpatine!

Here's The  Youngest holding up the picture that I used for inspiration.

 And of course, the obligatory action shot:

The costume that he is wearing is the robes that went to an alien costume and the cape and hood are an adult size.  He loves how the cape trails behind him and how the hood drapes over his face.  Not bad huh?  He was very pleased and if he's pleased, then I'm pleased.  :)
