Okay, now here’s what I’ve come up with for the first MOVIE MONDAY:
STAR WARS – Sith Lady or Jedi Knight?
The other day, I found myself wearing this:
Me wearing this didn’t happen accidentally of course, but the the sensation of wearing these garments was quite accidentally… I found myself feeling like a Jedi Knight!
I mean, this looks like a JEDI ROBE, doesn’t it?
When I was much, much younger, I used to be an actice player of the Star Wars LARP. So, for the first MOVIE MONDAY I thought I’d share some photos of these past days.
This was my first Star Wars costume in the late 90’s. Thanks to a good photo editor the “lightsaber” did have a “blade” later (in red, of course).
This is basically the same costume with some improvements – and fake blood. Since my hair seems to be much longer and in a ponytail I think the picture might have been taken in December 1999 or 2000. The “laser gun” used to be a friend’s plastic toy gun with random plastic parts from the trash can glued and /or taped to it. Some silver paint was added aroud the edges to give it a used look. Does it look as if Han Solo might carry it around? I think it fell apart later that day after every single player used it as a prop in the photos we made.😉
Shorter hair again – summer of 2000 or 2001? I don’t remember. That was my “pilot” costume.
Does all that make me a big Star Wars fan, I wonder? Not anymore, I guess. But I enjoy remembering the days of being part of the Star Wars experience/hype.
