Goofy is the Ice Cream Maker Guy from Return Of the Jedi. You need to see the evacuation of Cloud City to understand why this guy is so awesome. Here is a troop of people dressed as the infamous Ice Cream Maker guy photobombing a lot of pictures on day 1. Check out the origin of the Ice Cream Maker Guy HERE
And this is the team after I asked if I could take a picture. They all shouted "No Pictures!" and ran off.
Even Darth Vader needs a cheering section. Here are the Sith Cheerleaders
Of course no Star Wars Convention would be complete without the Muppets! Well. Stormtrooper Muppets at least!
I'm not a fan of the Miami Dolphins but I'll give them credit for excellent costuming!
Don't have the body for the Slave Leia costume? No problem. Just paint it on! Slave Leia T-Shirt
Futurama's Bender as R2-D2
The Futurama is nice and all, but no one beats The Family Guy animated parody of Star Wars. I give you Chicken Fett
My 2 favorite genres. Zombies AND Star Wars. I want to be a Zombie Stormtrooper when I grow up!
I learned that 5 year old children do not like spending all day at a convention, no matter how cool it is. Here is a cranky and tired Dartyhypie with a Lego Boba Fett
Fortunately we were able to get a life sized Kenner action figure of Darthypie made. Unfortunately we had to leave it behind because it didn't fit the carry-on luggage requirements.
Who remembers the movie Space Balls? I do!
And you can't forget John Candy's exquisite rendition of Barf the "Chewbacca" of Space Balls.
Oh yeah! It's the Adidas Storm Trooper. P.S. He's really cute without the helmet too...and he's British!
And his Boom Box which plays only 1990's rap and hip hop. BASS! How low can you go?
The Best Mom Ever makes her daughter a Hello Kitty Mandalorian/Clone Trooper outfit. Yes She does.
Dead Mau5 meet Death Star Mau5
Of course there were cool things to buy like this excellent Lando Calrissian Disguise Kit!
And neat things to look at from Rancho Obi-Wan. Yup. There were specific items from Rancho Obi-Wan on display at the convention. Like this Darth Vader Disco Helmet!
And this Stunning Admiral Akbar Paining. It's a Trap! I wonder if it is painted on black velvet.
Last but certainly NOT least. Rancho Obi-Wan had MAKEUP! Yes. for some reason Yves Saint Laurent came out with a makeup collection for the first prequel. I never saw this in stores so it must have been boutique only. If I could have I would have swatched the entire collection right then and there!
Thanks for looking at all my pictures. I promise to get back to makeup blogging as soon as I have recovered from my vacation!
