Yes, I admit it… I’m a Star Wars geek, going waaaay back. Not to the point that I’ve read all the books and own all the comics, but I do have a Lightsaber collection with over 40 pieces [from some expensive FX Lightsabers to those Lightsaber spoons that came in some cereal or other back in 1999, I think].
For my birthday I bought myself a Voice Changing Clone Trooper Helmet. I wanted to do something with it, so I’ve been planning on using it for a costume aimed at the Starfest convention here in Denver in April [I think]: The Clone Jedi KAR120C. I know, this is something that would be impossible in [Star Wars Universe] theory, but it’s meant to be a joke anyway. Stage 1, as is the first stage of any costume, is lots of planning [in the form of sketches]. Stage 2 is materials gathering, in this case, props – which brings me to the whole point of posting this: I built a Clone Jedi Lightsaber:
It cost about $8 and was put together in less than an hour. It’s the fifth Lightsaber hilt I’ve made so far, not counting the the six or seven Wooden Practice Lightsabers I’ve made.
Yeah, I’m a geek. Geek enough to post something like this for no other reason than to show off my latest piece of geekery. Anyways, I should get back to REAL work, like Monday’s Gypsy page.
Thanks for reading, gg
