chewbacca birthday fail.

Lucy's love for squirrels is only rivaled by her love for one thing.
Chewbacca.

Mind you, if you are a member of this family, it is a requirement to love Star Wars.
(We may or may not have camped out for Episodes One, Two and Three.)

But honestly, I never really thought I would be planning a Chewbacca birthday party.
Princess Leia?
Sure.
Queen Amidala?
Why not.
Ewoks?
Absolutely.

But no.
She wants Chewbacca.
I am going to do my best to give her Chewbacca.
But then I started searching Google for ideas.

Wow.
Just wow.

I am not making this cake.


Or this one.
But if I did for sure I would make an appearance on Cake Wrecks.




Jason will not wear this costume.




Janey will not be wearing this one either.


I personally am not a fan of hairy legs.

Or scary crafts.


Maybe Chewbama will come.


I could make these for favors.
(nice mannequin.)


I am pretty sure she would love me for forever and eternity if I got her this backpack.
A backpack that is probably bigger than her whole body.


But instead I will get her this little Chewie.
Because all she has asked for is a cozy Chewbacca that she can cuddle.

Back to the Google for the rest.

  2. Our doggie does the BEST Chewbacca impression... I think it looks like it could be an opportunity to make it your own FUN chewy party!

  3. FYI, Lego makes the CUTEST chewbacca, might be worth a visit to ebay?

  4. okay...so Henry got some star wars bath toys (they're really cute!) and plays with them all the time. this morning, i thought: 'hey, do you want to watch star wars on the tv?'...but see, while my husband did, in fact, campout for the recent SW movies, i have NEVER, NEVER, NEVER seen a single one...so I had to google which one of the DVDS we had was the "first/original" one! oops.

    oh, and that bath toy chewbacca he has is uber cute...maybe you can use that version for your party? I'll email you a pic, I can't find one online...

  5. totally funny! I once had to do a Jar Jar birthday. I made a cheesecake (requested by my then 6 year old)...and "painted" Jar Jar on with food coloring. It turned out okay. I'm so glad I didn't need to track down a cuddly Jar Jar. That would've been a challenge!

  10. My sister used to have a crush on Chewbacca when we were kids. We would play Star Wars and I would claim Luke as my boyfriend and she would claim Chewbacca.

  11. okay you are making me feel much better about the tiger themed birthday party i am having for my girly-girl daughter in two weeks! :-)

  12. Love cake-wrecks! I can't say I appreciate chewie or star wars being that I've never seen it, but I'm told by my husband that our choc lab sounds like chewbacca.

  13. I don't know much about SW but is there a 'girl' chewbacca? You could bling her out with one of your messy flower headbands and 'OMG-so-cute' necklaces:-) YOU wouldn't stick to all brown, would you? ... No matter what, she will LOVE LOVE LOVE you forever for doing this for her!

  17. i don't know...that cozy chewy is all cute except for the eyes. their a bit creepy. i might gouge those out first, pop in some cute little felty eyes with beautiful lashes, then give them to her. but then again, kids don't care about the eyes. or body hair, apparently. whatev. you're still, like, the coolest mommy for running with this!

  18. He is awfully snugly, isn't he...as a toy. Maybe not so much as a cake.
    I'm just not sure how I would feel slicing into Chewy's head and serving him up with ice cream.

    Can't wait to see how you fancy him up for the party!!

  19. Wow. That is all I can say. Those are some pretty intense Chewbacca party items. Glad you were able to find the last. That actually does look friends and cuddleable(is that a word?). Good luck with the birthday party.

  21. That's great! Just this week I met a girl (mid-twenties) who introduced herself as "Chewie" it took a few days of working with her to build up the nerve to ask how she aquired the name... no doubt - she loves star wars. LOL Amazing. She said her paychecks are even paid to "Chewie" :)

  22. OMG, this is too funny, I think I almost peed myself...hahaha!

    Have fun with that party.

  26. Oh my goodness ~ too dang funny! Those cakes are creepy. Don't un-friend me, but I've never seen any of the Star Wars movies. Tony took me to see one of the ones that came out a few years ago & I fell asleep within the first ten minutes....

  28. Miss Lucy sounds like such a quirky little thing! I'd love to meet her and talk with her awhile. Happy Birthday!

  29. My husband's nickname is Wookiee. We have a Star Wars room in our house. Ewoks are my favorite (and in my favorite episode). I even have an apron to prove it.

  35. Chewy always reminds me of my neighbor growing up...he had the BEST Chewacca impression EVER :)

    Good luck with the party :) I think it's awesome!! :)

  36. That is GREAT!!! I definately like what you settled for, although, the backpack is awefully amuzing!! Hope the party is awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow. Who knew all those items even existed? Thanks for a great laugh!

  38. Don't de-friend me, but.....I have never seen Star Wars. And, after seeing that scary chewbacca stuff, I dont think I want to. yikes!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have to laugh because I had that Chewie cake for my 8th birthday. I also dressed as Princess Leia (how the heck is that spelled anyway) for my party. You would think I was a huge fan, but in reality my ant took me to see the movie and I pretended to like it so I wouldn't hurt her feelings. One big ole Star Wars party and an xwing fighter and many action figure gifts later and the secret has not been told.

  40. This lady is based out of Mission Viejo. I don't know if you'd be interested but it's a heck of a lot easier than making them! http://onceuponacupcake.blogspot.com/2008/08/clone-trooper-cupcakes.html

  41. I don't know if you're interested but this lady is based out of Mission Viejo. It's a whole lot easier then making them yourself!

  42. I made a Chewbacca cake a few weeks ago and it was TORTURE! I think it ended up looking more like an ugly lion but the mom told me her son really liked it.

  43. My son loves Chewbacca. Of course, he's 12. And male. Actually he really just loves making the Chewbacca screech. He's creepy good at it. Hope and Pray Lucy doesn't pick up this skill. It's startling! :)
