    It’s great time. But my Jedi robe and high boots were just too fracking hot to wear for long. So I stripped right down to the Superman costume that I use as underwear. The cape is a real pain in the ass (well, you’ve got to stow somewhere)!

    I see the Lego meme represented, but no STEAMPUNK!!!

    I think there will be much more Star Trek next year as the new movie is out. Star Wars have had a lot of movies and had attention for many years.

    I went to one of those conventions and saw some performances from the 501st troopers, and I admire their coordination; always plenty of Stormtroopers, but only one Darth..

    They must hold an election or something.

    If you go to the entire set of photos here you’ll see some steampunk stuff like this one:

    I was more surprised that there was almost no Star Trek costumes aside from a few Klingons here and there.

    According to Cracked.com (not the best of sources, I agree) it seems that the one Darth Vader is actually David Prowse. If that is the case, then yes, I wouldn’t want to try to upstage him.

  8. Neener says:

    I believe David Prowse is in a wheelchair, so he does not appear in costume anymore.

    Didn’t she kill someone in an RV at Burning Man?

    @ Moon – the steampunk costumes were few and far between this year. But there was an awesome trio I wished I’d taken a photo of.

    That pretty in pink Vader has got to be the winner of all those Star Wars one! I wonder whose idea it was to dress her up like that?

    My three-year-old daughter would do back-flips around the block for that Princess Vader mash-up.

    But then… it was a lot of work for us to make custom Mahna-Mahna costumes last Halloween: not sure we’d be up for this.
