geeking out at celebration iv
After sleeping off the big cafeteria meal we had Saturday morning, Jim and I met up with Angel and Tastypants and hit Star Wars Celebration IV at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Saturday.
This Darth Vader uses the Force to bring him more cheeseburgers.
Yeah, it didn't take long for me to piss someone off. I'll never learn.
Someone should tell Spock he was at the wrong convention.
Jim was disappointed that no one had enough commitment to come as Jabba the Hut, but there was plenty to gawk at. There was this guy challenging all comers to a saber duel in front of South Hall and he was so lame. Members of the 501st Legion walked past us on the way to their group photo and we overheard someone say, "His swordfighting skills have improved since New York..." Jeez, that was an improvement? He must've really sucked then. One guy dressed as C3PO, but he looked more like the tin man from Wizard of Oz. Overall, the costumes and commitment to character were impressive.
The 501st Legion storms past Angel to get inside South Hall for their group photo.
Me and Chewbacca. I'm the one on the left.
Angel took some great shots, but I want to know - how did I miss seeing this guy and this guy?
