Me, I'm going as a Sandman from the movie Logan's Run. What about you?
^ Very cool costume! I was going to go as a Royal Guard (but the costume I bought on ebay got lost in the mail) GRRRRRRRRR! So, then I was going to fall back on my old stand-by Jedi Costume... but it looks like I won't be doing anything for Halloween afterall.
My foot was crushed on a water-park ride about 7 weeks ago and the doctors didn't realize the extent of the damage till just yesterday. Looks like I won't be walking for a long time. Maybe I can get a wheelchair and a hospital gown and an IV stand on wheels, and go as a patient? Maybe a handsome male nurse to push the wheelchair might be nice too.
My daughter Leia is going as a Jedi with my Parksaber, my younger daughter is going as Padme in the white outfit and cape, and my son is going as Jango Fett.
I'm going as a Cheerleader, yes I know very lame, I was going to make a Padme AotC battle outfit, but the plan had one flaw. I didn't have enough money to buy the stuff to make it, so I'm going as a cheerleader.
Mara Jade: Oh my! Sorry to hear about your foot. If you do the patient with IV pole costume.....make the IV bottle a mini fish tank. I once saw, in the hospital where I work, a patient with a REAL glass IV bottle and, on the same pole, one he'd made with fish swimming in it! Did I ever do a double-take!
To answer the question:
at the SSWS Halloween Party (10/26), I'm either going to wear my Jocasta Nu Jedi costume or Professor McGonagall (from Harry Potter)
Halloween Night, at the door with the trick-or-treaters, I'll wear Professor McGonagall.
Then a fast change into standard Jedi for the SSWS event at the midnight showing of EpII IMAX!
Mara Jade! I'm also sorry to hear about your foot! I think you should definitely go for the wheelchair idea! I think Freddy Krueger in a wheelchair with fish swimming in his IV tank could be pretty fun.
As for my costume..... I'm trying to come up with an idea of a non-helmeted costume. Maybe not even a SW costume! I will definitely be handing out candy at home as a Stormtrooper. If the kids around my place weren't scared of me before, maybe this will help. Mwa ha ha ha! Is it a wonder I'm an Imperial?
I would love to do something that is like, the Anti-Beth... you know high heels, make-up, hair done up nice, power skirt/suit? Not sure yet! Any ideas would be greatly welcomed, of course.....
The Arena Battle Padme costume really isn't that expensive. I used vinyl from the home decor department at JoAnn's for the shinguards and utility belt and that was like $10, but I accidently bought too much material... that was good though 'cause it took me three tries to do them right Anyway, I'll probably go as Padme because my Barriss Offee Jedi Padawan costume isn't finished yet. I might just wear a different shirt and BS on the belt and go as a Jedi Padawan that looks rather similar to Barriss Offee since I wear my Padme costume a lot. Of course, I might wear the ripped version and get a chain to connect to my wrist and hook the other end to a giant wooden pole and drag that around...
