    Howdy. My friend Marlana (my accomplice in crimes) I mean my companion, doesn't have a costume for Megacon, and I know she would feel sorta left out, so does anyone have quick ideas for a costume for her?

    Thanks.

    Bathrobe + Flashlight = Jedi

    Bathrobe + Flashlight + Fuzzy Bunny Slippers = Sith Lord

    Hehe. That's all she might get, if I do it on my own.

    My toncilitus turned out to be some kind of bad virus or bacterial thing. Or maybe I could figue out how to sew in bed. lol.

    I'm gonna have to share these ideas with my mom. She'll be in the hospital for a few days, cause she's really sick, so she'll enjoy some funny stuff. :D

    Here's a quick costume

    How to Make a Cheap Jedi/Sith Costume

    Take one set of black clothing such as a long sleeve t-shirt, jeans, socks, and shoes/boots. One black bathrobe or a cheap vampire cape that is solid on both sides. A fake black silk sash to hide the belt, button and zipper of the jeans.

    How to Make a Cheap Lightsaber

    You need the following items:

    Old Wood Broom Stick
    Duct Tape (Silver or Color)
    Cheap Paint

    Take an old broom stick and tape about 12" of the stick with the duct tape. This will be your handle. If you have color duct tape too, cut out pieces to make the 2D shaped buttons and cut off switch.

    If the broom is any color other than wood, you have your blade. If its just wood then take the paint and color it. If you don't like the color it came as, scrap the paint off and repaint it.


    You now have yourself a Cheap Jedi/Sith Costume!

    Few things could be simpler than a Gonk droid. Take a garbage can, flip it over, and wear it like that. :p

    Or find a blue-and-white tye-dyed shirt and go as "hyperspace."

    I'd offer to let her wear my Rebel Fleet trooper outfit on Saturday when I'll be a pilot, but it's kinda big on me and she'd probably drown in it. :)

    And Mayo, I hope your mom is okay. Geez, everyone I know is getting sick.

    The Gonk idea sounds perfect for Marlana. :D

    I'll ask her about the fleet trooper outfit.

    LadyDemoness, I never thought of making a jedi costume that ay. Interesting.

    My mom was supposed to come home today. She had a surgery to remove a kidney stone, but something went wrong. When we went to bring her home, she got really sick feeling, and she started swelling up. I hope she gets well and comes home soon. :(

    Mesa really miss her.

    Anything we can do to help her?

    I have a lightsaber hilt she can borrow if you go that way. My costume would be WAY too big but the hilt is one size fits all.

    Thanks Darryl. I'll suggest it to her tomorrow at the dance show.

    I just talked to my mom on the phone. She sounded really tired, but she said that she is coming home tomorrow. If everything is ok.

    Thanks for your concern guys. I told her about the suggestions for costumes, and she was laughing so hard. :D

    She really liked the stormtrooper idea. She said that that's the costume she wants most. :D

    If you are going to go as the Rebel Princess again Mayo, she can be your "escort!"

    Yep, I'm goin as the Rebel princess. That's a good idea for her to be my escort.

    Ugh, that means I have to spend a few hours doing my hair. Oh well. It's all for the cause.
