No, I'm sober... here's what I could see in a shopping mall just few blocks away:







Yup, it's Mike again

I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

Was there something Star Wars related going on on that mall, or anywhere near it? Or they just decided to do some shopping dressed up like that?

I'm not gonna say what that looks like hanging from the Jedi's belt.

RRS, remember my mall SW story from a while back with Boba Fett?

And people say that Star Wars fans are geeks. Where did that reputation come from...?

That's scary.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Do you have a non-Star Wars vibro-blade weapon on your mind?

Yup, I remember the "moving figure" story.


@ricarleite:
No, it had nothing to do with the mall, there was just yet another local fan convention in a nearby pub... but this armor just screams for a photo session

Something like that. Something that would be wielded by Jedi Ron Jeremy.

Nah. He had no idea what these guys were dressed as. So someone across from him (off camera) told him who they were and now he's smacking himself in the forehead and saying "Oh Duh!"

One day I'll dress up into something like a stormtrooper or Boba Fett, and walk around the streets, not because I'd want people to look at me, but because everyone who sees me would have a good story to tell everyone about. It would make their lifes 0.001% more fun.

If it makes you feel any better, it would make my life .01% better. More worthwhile now, isn't it?

Indeed it is.

In July I'll be at an AnimeCon, dressed up as a character from the anime "Naruto". I'll send pics.
