Star Wars Ce-line-bration
Well, that turned out not to be an option... there were so many people that the fire marshall made them stop selling tickets (and I was there around 11:00 am). I decided to wonder around the public areas a bit, check out the folks in costume (I almost walked into a pillar because of a Princess Leia slave girl), and peek through doors. It looked like the biggest thing going on was waiting in line. There were huge lines for everything... lines that lasted hours. I had a friend report a 5 hour line to get into the convention's store!
I have to give credit to the folks that costume for things like this... mmm slave girl... where was I? Oh yeah, lots of people put a lot of effort and cash into these costumes and many are quite impressive. After the PLSG, my favorites were the Mara Jades (which evidently just requires an attractive red-head to wear black leather). ... ... Oh yeah. And of course there were tons of Jedis and stormtroopers. I wish I could have gone to the costume contest.
I wonder if anyone has posted pics of the slave girl on-line?
