Look what came in the mail!
In about 1½ weeks, my husband, sister and I will be immersed in a galaxy far, far away. I can’t wait! We went to Celebration V in 2010 and had a blast. We met Mark Hamill, saw tons of great costumes:
and sat in on great panels. I went to 3 sessions on writing—yes, even my geekdom is nerdy. I’m still working my way through this year’s panel schedule. (use the quick lists for best results)
Prior to C V, I was a fringe Star Wars fan. I liked movies 4-6, tolerated 1-3, didn’t really care about Clone Wars and viewed George as a money-hungry elitist. But being around other people who love it made me realize how much of a genius he really is. How cool is it to have created an entire universe that everyone can play in? He’s like Walt Disney for grown ups.
The true fans are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Everyone was friendly, accommodating to everyone else—one guy even took my husband up to the VIP section in the Dave Filoni panel—and just out to have a good time. We got like 30 secs with Mark Hamill for pics, but he makes you feel like the most important person in the world in that time. 🙂
We have lots of great memories from those 4 days and I can’t wait to step out of reality again.
Best costume still has to go to this guy:
