Star Wars The Force Awakens Comes To Life In Adorable Baby Sizes

For these lucky babies, everyday becomes a Holloween costume day when October hits.

The Columbia, South Carolina mom, Lauren Manche, loves to make costumes for her 8-month-old twins, Lera and Marigold. Lauren makes these fun costumes using items found lying around the house.

“I always loved making costumes when I was a kid,” Mancke, 32, tells PEOPLE. “When I was a kid I never bought a costume, I always made it. I’ve always been a fan of Halloween, and I just love homemade costumes.”

Lauren started doing these fantastic costumes back in 2015 for her then 16-month-old son. His designs were from like popular television shows or well-known movies.

Here’s one from Reno 911.

Here’s one of Han Solo from the original Star Wars.

And here is her son channeling both Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World.

This one’s Marty Mcfly from Back to the Future.

This is from Raiders of the Lost Ark, and her son playing Harrison Ford’s character Indiana Jones.


Here are her twin daughters playing characters from I Love Lucy.   This is the episode where Lucy and Ethel work at a candy factory and the conveyor belt goes crazy.

And here’s Thelma and Louis.

“I’ve just been doing it here and there — with twins, you don’t have a lot of time!” Mancke tells People while laughing. “I’ve been making the costumes in the morning and shooting them after they had their first nap, so they’re in a good mood.”

She has started giving away all those extra costumes since she has so many designed.  And Lauren adds that she hopes to inspire other parents into the DIY costume design.  Most importantly she hopes to put a smile on people’s faces when they see her designs.

“If it makes people happy, that’s the main thing for me,” she says. “It makes me happy to make them, and if it makes other people happy, that’s really why I want to do it.”
