Thanks to my battling a slight case of Con Crud, we didn't make it out to Star Wars Celebration on Sunday. So, this wrap-up of Saturday's activities will be my final convention post. (Commence rejoicing or grieving, as the case may be.)
We had at least one couple (not this one) stop, pose for the photo, and then resume arguing all without missing a beat. It was pretty hilarious.
This art display was fantastic:
And as an art nut, I was thrilled to see Christian Waggoner doing some live painting:
I also love chalk art, so it was fun to check in on this guy throughout the weekend:
UPDATE: Many thanks to Frank F. for sending me this finished shot!
Believe it or not, there's actually a guy in this suit. We watched him get helped into it, and then shuffle along a few feet before being mobbed by folks wanting to take his picture.
Star Wars Laser Tag, anyone?
This stormtrooper was having a bit of fun:
The sign on his chest said, "Please do not touch the display." Heheheh. Reminds me of the time I accidentally scared the bejeepers out of some poor old lady when I was in full clown make-up, leaning against a wall. She nearly hit the ceiling when I wished her a good afternoon.
And now, the part you've all been waiting for...
Here's Ethan's droid:
After we chatted for a while, Ethan asked if I'd like to try driving it. Which is kind of like asking if I'd like brownies for breakfast. Frankly, it was all I could do not to snatch the controller out of his hands and go gleefully sprinting from the room. Assuming I could figure out which way was forward, of course.
Anyway, after successfully mastering the "spin the head around" control, I began experimenting with knocking the metal stanchion poles over - although not intentionally. ("Which way is forward, again?")
Then the Jawas showed up.
When I spun his head around, they all jumped and whipped out their blasters:
After a few more rounds of me attempting to scare them off (ie spinning the droid in circles) they got really bold:
I thought Ethan might intervene, but he was laughing too hard. :) I guess it's a good thing they only looked like they were prying bits off for spare parts.
Well, guys, that's it for me! John & I also skipped the special after-hours Star Wars party out at Disney Hollywood Studios Saturday night, but if you check out Inside the Magic's page here you can watch lots of videos on the special shows and events.
Now I'm off to finish some laundry, catch up on e-mail, and continue watching John slave away on my office remodel. Oh, and you're going to LOVE what we're doing for the small desk. [rubbing hands together gleefully] Muwahhahah!
