You’ve failed your highness, I am a Jedi


I pondered long and hard on this one. I’m going to a Halloween party with a mate in Leeds Uni, and couldn’t decide what to go as. I looked at replica Michael Jackson Thriller jackets on eBay, but they were all in the USA and none had any sizes listed. I tried asking a few questions to one of the sellers and had the standard American response of a few words that failed to construct a sentence, or convey any information, let alone answer my questions. I figured sending this person money would be a mistake.

So, I had my back up plan of going as Doctor Who (the Eccleston incarnation) but that’s kind of a cop out, as it basically means going as myself. It would have been a good costume mind, very life like.

There was one nugget staring at me though. The Jedi costumes I saw at Collectormania a couple of weeks back. These things range from £230 – £430 though, steep eh? But you can’t put a price on being a nerd, and I certainly can’t. The only decision was do I go for the Obi-Wan or the Anakin version?

After much soul searching, and a quick poll of the office, I plumbed for Obi Wan. This doesn’t mean I’m a good guy mind, I just like to look inconspicuous… yeah right.

So, this thing should arrive by the weekend, and when it does you can be sure I’ll have some pics up here of me wearing it. Followed by some pics of me going to the shops in it, and going to work in it.

You think I’m kidding don’t you?
