    I took my gf to see AOTC when it came out, and while she says she enjoyed it, she gives me the "death stare" if I even joke about seeing it again. She doesn't like any of the other SW movies, not TPM, ANH, TESB or ROTJ... Funny thing is she had no problem going to see Spider-Man a second time, and said she'll even watch it a third time or more... He he he... oh well I have the TPM DVD and will get AOTC DVD when it is released, so I can watch it over and over and over and over again! Alone if I have to! Women! *sigh*

    Here in Brazil (Z not S) same girls like SW but is dificult to find too. I thing that many girls haven't "skills" to see SW, but this is changing

    I have 4 friends who absolutely adore SW. Most girls aren't really into sci-fi, in general, not just in SA. I'm proud to say that I have been a proud SW fan since '97. :D

    :D My friend, you know the wrong girls! I am a girl (well, a little older than a girl) and most of my female friends love Star Wars too! Personally I was bored to tears in Spiderman--enjoyed some of the special effects, but my main gripe with the movie was that the heroine was SOOO annoying and I couldn't for the life of me see why Peter P was so crazy about her! I think that was why I loved this episode of SW--I liked that Anakin could fall in love with a kick-@ss girl like Padme (who does a little more than stand around looking helpless and screaming "look out Spiderman")!

    I've been a fan of SW since I saw Return of the Jedi in theatres many moons ago and have since watched the OT many, MANY times. Can't say I enjoyed TPM overly much, it had some amazing special effects scenes, but the story itself did not move me. AotC, on the other hand, blew me away! I went to see it 5 times in theatres!

    Phew, anyway, long answer to say, the female fans of SW ARE out there. :)

    I have to say, I have noticed that many girls don't like Star Wars. Why, I have no idea. I have known a few who have never even bothered to see it, or worse yet, don't even know what Star Wars is! *shudder*

    Spiderman followed the comic book and cartoon series pretty closely, so if youe have read/seen those, you got exactly what you expected.

    Hello to everyone in the SA Fan Force from the West Side Of The Force in the USA :) .
    I may not be from SA but I love Star Wars. [face_love] I try to attend as many conventions and meetings as possable in full costume.I make all of my costumes and props and wear them.I am working on a Speederbike prop now.And as soon as I build a vaccume table I plan to make me a full Stormtrooper costume. So I you want to find a girl that is in to Star Wars try to attend a convention or show up at your next meeting in costume.I am sure you will find out there are more SA girls into Star Wars then you might think. :)

    lol... there's no such thing as Star Wars conventions in South Africa, much less ones where people wear costumes and props. If only I lived in the USA... *sigh*

    OnlyOneKenobi Sorry to hear that. :(
    Ok you could make everyone think there is one if start having some of your meetings in costume or have a Star Wars party where everyone comes in costume.
    I am sure that there is someone in SA who has a costume or two that he/she has been working on and would like the chance to wear it somewhere besides at home.
    Or start a and prop workshop with some if not all of the creative Star Wars fans you know. Think is there some you know or even heard about that has built or is building a costume that lives where you are?
    Good place to start. If there is one thing I know about Star Wars Fans it is this. We are the most creative people on the planet. The fans that build props and costumes look at everyday items and think of every possible usage the item could be used for except it `s intended usage. :D
    I am pretty sure you know a fan or heard of a of fan that has built a lightsaber out of some everyday items. Like plumbing pipe,a flashlight,epoxy, a few rubber washers, some windshield wipers,a plastic rod or wood dowl,some spray paint and a little imagination.Maby they even took a toy lightsaber and modified it.

    If you do hold a meeting in costume post the
    pictures so other Star Wars fans can see them.

    Not everyone cares. Most people are just casual fans who watch the movies, read the books and play the games and nothing more.

    Unlikely. They would live in fear of ridicule forever.

    SA isn't very big on conventions or costume parties, even if there are people who have the abilty to make props or costumes they wouldn't bother - it's a different culture. It's sad but true.

    Only in the USA...

    So what you are basically telling me is no one in the SA
    has made a costume or prop and would be willing to let other people see what they have created or teach someone how to make their own?
    Is this correct?
    Or did I misunderstand something?

    Does this also mean no one in SA would
    attend a SW Movie Marathon in costume if one was planned?

    How often do you have meetings?
    And what do you do at them?

    Girls in England make a very big point of having " fallen asllep in the middle of it".
    This is because to like a Star Wars movie is to say that you have something deep and real about you. But some girls do not like that. However all is not lost as this tread has there are enlightend/starwars loving girls out there!

    I adore SW, as do a half dozen or so of my female friends. Most of which I introduced to it, but that's beside the point. :p
