Man, I love conventions.
The people, the costumes, the panels, the costumes, the great geek merchandise....the costumes...yep. I love it all.
If you do, too, then you are going to LOVE the next few posts here on Epbot. See, John & I have 4-day passes to the Star Wars Celebration here in Orlando, and we're not afraid to use them.
And since I took over 300 photos today, we'd better get right to it.
The first costume I spotted today was also the most creative: a split Vader/Anakin. If I see him again I'll try to grab a better pic. (Mr. Scraggly on the right was sad because his 'saber had lost its force. Or, in non-Jedi terms: the batteries died.)
Now I want raspberry sherbet. Who's with me?
There are tons of free photo spots/backdrops around the floor, and they're all extremely well-done. The sponsors definitely went all out to make sure folks get plenty of photo souvenirs.
Just as I was about to take her picture, she exclaimed, "Oh, look at them! That's crazy!" which I thought was funny, given her own costume.
In her defense, though, these are the people she was talking about:
I have much more to say about these two in my next post. And video. Which you absolutely cannot miss.
Don't ask me to explain the stuffed animal. I have no idea.
This kid was hilarious, and oh-so-cute. To take his photo I went down on one knee, and he automatically mimicked me, then realized what he was doing and stopped mid-crouch. Before I could take another picture, though, he'd snatched off his helmet and made a run for it.
That's a lot of Leias.
The galaxy's best photo-spot.
That's no moon.
Four kids and a walking carpet.
Another great photo op - you can sit inside.
Lots of themed vignettes and doodads to photograph:
R2 goes punk? Heh.
I thought this was the cutest family.
I'd like a time machine just so I can go back and be exactly like this girl when I'm 12. Love the matching headband.
Can't forget the merchandise!
John had to take a lot of work calls today. So, I just stuck this in his hand, posed him, and started snapping photos. I'm easily amused, by the way.
And speaking of Lando, somebody please convince me I don't want to spend $25 on this t-shirt:
I don't want to spend $25. I don't. [will...weakening...]
And I'll wrap up this segment with the world's cutest droid:
D'awwww. Suddenly I find droid-building to be an appealing hobby.
