As many Star Wars fans out there know, today is International Star Wars Day. Many of the cinemas around Brisbane decided to celebrate this year with movie marathons. Today, I sat through the Star Wars Original Trilogy. We started at 12.45 and finished around 8.15pm. I went along with one of my good friends and for the occasion we decided to dress up. Abi has a wonderful Jedi costume, and I didn't want to be left out, so spent some time on Saturday (when I wasn't doing Uni work) throwing together a quick Leia costume from Return of the Jedi, her Rebel Trooper Costume.
It was simply sanding back, cleaning up and painting my replica blaster and whipping up a hooded poncho. In the future I will go on and make the full version with the correct pants and blouse underneath, but for today, I'm happy with what I put together. And luckily enough, my Margaery Tyrell wig is the right colour. And looking at my photos, my poncho is a bit long in the back, but that's a simple hemming fix.
