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.

  1. Great Jedi outfits. Coincidentally, I just started rewatching the movies this summer. I never realized how awesome Luke’s all black outfit was until recently. I especially love your second and third photos.

  2. You look awesome!I’m not a nerd about Star Wars but I love the movies. I really can’t figure out what I should dress like for a movie monday. But if I had to choose, maybe Violet in Lemony Snickets An series of unfortunate events. Her dress is so beautiful and I loved the footage in this film.

  3. I love everyone’s contribution to this! I just came up with an idea for the September Movie Monday, so I will be anxiously awaiting your next announcement. This is really a challenging theme, which is what makes it so fun. 🙂
