I plan to be there for the opening, reunion of sorts with the Magic of Myth 501st Troopers
Sounds great dude.
Newbie here. As you can guess by the name, (look at it backwards,) I have a lot of Leia costumes. Since the age of four I've been though about five ANH Leia costumes (ah, the joys of being a second generation Star Wars adict.) When I was eleven my mother, (a dressmaker,) made me a Leia ceremonial gown and earlier this year I helped her make another for me.
I've also worn a Leia Bouush costume one Halloween, (friend of mine designed it when I was thirteen,) and it was so well praised that she asked for it back and she now displays it!
She also made, along with her husband, a bikini costume and she had me model it and then she sold it. (My boyfriend was very, very disapointed.) I've been blessed, thankfully, with a petite frame and slender build, brown eyes and even brown hair, (but sometimes I'm afraid that's what attracted my father to my mother, we're nearly identical and he's always adored Carrie Fisher.)
So I can pull of costumes really well and I've modeled Padme costumes as well that's she's sold on a private market overseas to collectors.
This year I've been working on two costumes, both from RotJ. Leia's Ewok dress is finished and I'm wearing it for Halloween, and her battle costume with the soft blue pants.
I would like to get, however, a female Jedi costume because I just found a pair of brown boots that would go perfect with it.
WELCOME Aiel!!! It's great to see another lady here!! Did you see the Norwood Christmas Pageant thread? It's in November and we are entered!!! So if you would love to parade one of your fabulouse costumes, please, PM me for details!!
Oh, btw, I'm Adalia (Addy to most) and I started this SAFF (Which is now an official Fan Force!) and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!
Thanks Adalia-Durron I'd love to be a part of the pagent, but I'm headed off with my boyfriend to America after my birthday to actually visit Skywalker Ranch.
He works for Industrial Light and Magic, I met him while they were in Australia in '02 at the Episode II premiere, (my sister in Sydney won tickets,) And we got to talking (he was only twenty, not like he was a cradle snacher, and I didn't start dating him till last year when he moved perminately to Adelaide.)
And so he's going to have a looksee at what they've been doing over there and he's taking me along! I think I'm just about as bad as my father, dating someone for their Star Wars connections.
So thanks and I wish I could come, and I won't be going for a while so I'll stick around and when I come back I'll tell you what it's like there.
O...M...G!!! Then you simply must take lots of photos and then compile a full report to give us when you return!! This is most important!! Lucky you.....honestly a dream come true. I'm heading stateside next year for the movie release...will be in Dallas/Austin as there is a convention the weekend before the movie comes out that I want to attend.....
Yeah, (A/N: shuffles feet,) I am pretty lucky, and I'll be sure to take a lot of pictures, I can't wait to meet GL and have a look at the SR archives.
OOOHHHH!! I'm so jealous!!!! But wish you the best trip...
Well, hopefully it will be, but my boyfriend snores. But I'll bring along my trusty cattle prod if he wakes me up Yep, Georgie himself, apprently I've been told not to expect to much, but as my dear boyfriend of mine does talk to him by first name, I'll be expecting to at least shake his hand.
But I had to promise not to hug him and cry.
Or fall on your knees and worship him!
Oh mighty George Lucas, creator of the Skywalker. (Apu from the Simpson's voice,) "you magnificent bastard. I salute you!"
Boyf's more worried about if Hayden's going to be lurking around, oh Hayden. But I've promised that if I meet Hayden I won't flirt with him, throw myself at him or otherwise. Waah!
My boyfriend's a slave master!
You're only human you know!! You must remind him of that!! What if Natalies hanging about!?!?!? Same rules?!?!?
Ah ha! Touche! But it's not going to work since he's used to all of the actors and he doesn't drool over them anymore, me on the other hand I'll probably scream like some sort of band groupie and try to hug Hayden.
I just discovered how to make monkeys!!
I want a monkey costume now!
Monkeys are a bit like Ewoks aren't they?
Not Quite....but close.......
