So since I’m officially a lad of leisure and possessed of copious amounts of free time, I decided to finally make my pilgrimage down to the Science Centre with Grace and pay my respects to me Lord Vader at the Art of Star Wars Exhibition.
It’s not the first time we’ve gone to the Science Centre; I find that it’s actually a pretty good place for a date, especially if you’re as geeky as the both of us. So anyway, it’s $18 for the Star Wars bits as well as free run of the Science Centre proper itself. No Omni Theatre, mind.
Loads of opportunities to make a fool of yourself while remaining cute as a button, as evidenced above.
Here’s me attempting my best Airwolf expression.
Here we are in our very own Wong Kar Wai movie poster. Note my attempt at heroic but stoned expression and her content, damsel look. Not very successful.
That’s me with a TIE fighter pilot. Yes, if there were ever a Star Wars convention and if I were to wear a costume, this would be it. Why? Because I used to pilot a mean TIE fighter in the days of DOS. Plus, I got a 12″ version of this mean dude that my brother gave me. I rock the TIE fighter Academy. Hail to the Empire!
My brother Andy is a massive Boba Fett fan. He almost had a Boba Fett tattoo done until someone stole the idea from him. Disrespect! Damn, can’t remember if they included the Wookie pelt on this…
Another favourite of my brother and I. Everyone thinks the Royal Guards are the ultimate badasses in the movies though they never do anything but stand next to the Emperor.
Aren’t you a little short for a Stormtrooper?
Here’s my turn with the Sith Lord himself. Please erase all traces of sulky Hayden Christensen from your mind. THIS is how Darth Vader’s supposed to be like.
