Let the wookie win.

do people REALLY get dressed up like that all because of a stupid science fiction movie?

those wacky liberals!

MMMM! B'lance Bars!

Sondra - Answer to question #1 - the ho


Notice that chick checking out Chewies ass? (Or maybe he had a few dingleberries)

Hey, don't forget his nickname is CHEWIE.

Conservative - Yes, people do dress like that just because of a sci-fi movie. And it's not just Star Wars. People make costumes from many of the popular sci-fi shows of the day: Star Trek...Babylon 5...etc.

It's all just pure fun. I don't see a thing wrong with it. Granted, there are a few out there who take things waaaay too seriously with this sort of thing, but for most people, it's just a fun thing to do. Personally, I don't have a costume (except for the cheap Jedi robe I bought for Halloween from Target).

I think the coolest ones are the costumes of Boba Fett, Storm/Clone Troopers, and Darth Vader. These people make them from scratch, and they are usually quite well done.

You can make so many things from scratch. It's like soy.

I'm going to open a scratch farm.

Actually it was a flea collar.

There seems to be an imblance in the Force.

P.S. I am not making this up:

Once, when I was young and irresponsible, I went into a convenience store to purchase .:ahem:. something my then-boyfriend should certainly have had the decency to not send me into the store to purchase. This was long enough ago that girls didn't usually make this purchase.

The Dante Hicks behind the counter was surprised, but completed the transaction and handed me my purchase, adding, "May the Force be with you."

I had never had someone in a store say that to me. I was unprepared. I said, "And also with you," and left, embarrassed.


For future reference, the internationally (and galactically) acceptable term for Chewbacca's hot post-movie action, protected and otherwise, is Wookie-Nookie.

Carry on.

golfwidow: excellent.

If Chewie is plannng hot action with the "babe" smiling behind him I hope he's buying several adult beverages and a paper bag as well.

"Is that The Force in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?"

*nerve-grating wookie noise*

"ooh, the force is strong with you!"

The key word in Dave's post, of course, being "IF".

I once went to a midnight showing of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' wearing a merry widow and fishnet stockings and was otherwise spraypainted gold. Why does it seem like that was just fun and a little silly and this is almost ridiculous?

(The next day attempts to remove the gold paint were anything but fun and silly.)

Look at the bright side, would you not rather have ScrewHaccka buy a pretend prophylactic than hold up the store?

Peri: pictures? Pretty please???

I have no pictures (thank god). Quite a lot of beverages had been consumed in the hours before midnight and I don't believe any of us even thought to get out a camera.

Tamara, I'm with you. Those BLANCE bars sound DLICIOUS.

I hope he's picking up something for the post Wookie-Nookie rug burn too.

Had a girlfriend in college that thought Chewie was hot. As in, while most girls get all squirmy over some rock star or teen idol (or in the case of a few blogglettes, members of british comedy teams) my gf was into Chewbacca. I, at the time, was 5'9" and had about three hairs on my chest. I just couldn't compete.
