As you can see, most of my Star Wars costumes aren't "canon" really. They are taking outfits from the movies and doing something weird to them. As you can also see, this does not include my 239842983 Tenel Ka outfits, which also count as Star Wars costumes but need their own section cause there's so many of them. I know, I know: Dork Central. I wear the badge with pride, hehe. XD
Worn at: SW: Attack of the Clones IMAX '02!
Group: w/ Valerie as Hoth Luke
Character: Han Solo ownz j00. Valerie and I wanted to dress up to see the AotC IMAX with our group of SW cronies (who were all also doing the same). And we didn't know who to be. Finally we settled on Hoth Luke and ESB Han [pre-carbonite] -- we did these costumes in ONE day. We stayed up till 6am, got up at noon the day of the movie and finished them. Valerie hand sewed my whole shirt while I sat and cut the pants and made her Hoth accessories. Fun yet horrendouly tiring. What do you expect in 24 hours? I'd say we did pretty damn good. XD
Fun things: The jacket and shirt.. and the pants! And the boots... and CHEWIE. Hell! Everything was fun! IT'S HAN SOLO.
Bad things: Cutting little slits in the pants and weaving bias tape into them. Oh my goodnessssss. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat.
Worn at: Dragon*Con '03 (v1), Celebration III (v2), Dragon*Con '09 (v3)
Status: v1/v2 - Retired, v3 - Active
Group: most recently w/ Aphy as Femme!Luke
Character (version 1): Hannah Solo is me wanting to be Han again. I already have a Han costume and I wanted to do something different. And since D*C is usually full of schoolgirls and people in short skirts... I had to do this. Turning Han into a girl and walking around in pigtails rocked. *CACKLE*
Character (version 2): This is when I redid the costume for Celebration III. I got a new shirt, added some sparkly trim to it. Redid the shorts with red rhinestones and got a new vest, adding bling to it. XD I also wore my Queen Tenel Ka tiara with it and piled the makeup on. Version 2 also included new boots, fishnets and a whole new Chewbecca, that I added bling to myself. And Sarah as my femme-Luke = LOVE. <333 Bwaaaha! And much thanks to Sarah and Jenny for some of the pictures of this one. :D
Character (version 3): I redid even more of this again. This time I changed the shirt completely -- to a shirt that had the 3/4 sleeves like Han's. I also took the shorts from version 1 and wore those again. Aphy made us medals from the end of ANH, since she was being Ceremonial Luke. And of course, there is always CHEWBECCA. XD
Dragon*Con 2003 (v1):
Celebration III (v2):
Dragon*Con 2009 (v3):
Fun things: Everything. I absolutely adore Han and when I got the idea for this originally I knew it would be too much fun to pass up. Also, CHEWBECCA. <3
Bad things: Nothing much on the first go 'round. Except for the fact that after I took my pigtails out, my head hurt like a bitch. Version 2 had no bad things. Hence why I made a version 2. Version 3 came along when I required one with less bling! I still love all of them though, no real bad things. XD
Worn at: Dragon*Con '10
Group: w/ Kyle as Dr. Zahara Cody, Lalei as Trig and Draelight as Han Solo
Character: So none of the new characters that were introduced in this novel have any art of them from the book, so we pretty much had to go it alone here and come up with stuff ourselves. It wasn't too hard. Prison! Jumpsuits! I made the backs for Trig, Kale and Han's jumpsuits and Nat and I sat for a good half an hour trying to pick out wigs that could look similar but not the same cause we're dorks like that. We goofed off way too much in these and didn't really get any good pictures. Hopefully we can fix that in the future! Haha~ XD
Fun things: Acting like a stupid 14-year-old boy and crying about zombies. I also loved that wig.
Bad things: Everyone got a gun except Kale. He got the Chewbacca beanie. XD
Worn at: Halloween '07
Character: So we were trying to figure out what to do for Halloween (since you probably figured out that it's an important holiday at Casa de My House XD) and my mom said she wanted to make a Goth Dorothy (as in Wizard of Oz Dorothy) costume. I giggled at the idea and then I was like OH HAY THEME! GOTH MOVIE CHARACTERS. And you know I'm a Star Wars nerd, hence the Goth Leia! In the picture I have of both of us though, she had taken her wig out of the Dorothy pigtails, BUT YEAH. THAT WAS THAT. And I was going to use one of those semi-cheap Leia wigs, but I have too much hair for that small of a wig, so I used my own hair, which worked better, I think. Then I got to put chains and safety pins in it and stuff. Hehe.
Fun things: It was actually quite comfortable, and carrying around the blaster is always fun. MUAH. Maybe I will wear it to a con one day. NEEDS MOAR GOTH CHARACTERS THOUGH. XD
Bad things: This costume was a little rushed, but I still loved the way it turned out.
Worn at: Dragon*Con '08
Status: Depends on if we do the group again!
Group: w/ lots o' SW zombies!
Character: So, Star Wars doesn't hesitate to kill off like every character ever, right? Well, a couple of us decided to use that to our advantage and do a zombified group of characters who have sadly passed away in the GFFA! Hehe. I was Anakin's mama, Shmi Skywalker. I had a few cuts and scrapes here and there, not to mention all the blood all over me -- and can't forget the rope around the wrists! We also had Teneniel Djo (poisoned), random Hoth Soldier #26 (froze to death), Mara Jade Skywalker (Caedus-ized!), Falynn Sandskimmer (all blowed up) and Padme (lol died of "a broken heart" -- note the runny makeup). We had a lot of fun running around in these and I especially loved the way my makeup turned out. THANK YOU, APHY~ :D
Fun things: EVERYTHING. It was so awesome walking around and wanting brains and making horrible Star Wars/zombie jokes. I also had a lot of fun making the costume and then, you know, ruining it. The best was that I didn't have to concentrate on making Shmi's stuff accurate or anything since I was just going to tear it up anyways. Heh.
Bad things: My hair kept getting caught in my makeup and when I would move my hair I would mess it up. It's always the boots or the hair. XD
