No long stories on this one. Just a simple question: "Assuming the Star Wars universe celebrates Halloween and you exist in it - who or what do you dress up as this year, and why?" It's a lot more challenging to be clever in short answers, but many of you rose to the occasion.
Your best answers included:
I'd go in droid-face.
That's where you dress up as a member of the unrecognized, non-voting and segregated minority - the types of characters not even allowed in bars that let Aqualish thugs in - then I would dance around making "boop-beep" noises while laughing in their shiny metal faces. I would be able to do this with full impunity, knowing full-well that any restraining bolt-wearing droid that dared speak against me would have its memory wiped at best, or torn apart by droid-torturing EV-Supervisor Uncle 9D9s.
Of course, eventually they'd be some leaking-heart-valve politically correct droids that might say, "I'm a Protocol droid, not a costume," but to them I say...
I'd get my friends together and go as the U.S Congress. Since the star wars universe exists as a fiction within our universe; why can't our universe/ earth exist within a sitcom fiction in the Star wars universe. I could see there being, in a verse with intergalactic federations/ empires/ governments, a market for a sitcom regarding a single country on a single planet where people can't travel through space. In said sitcom the star wars characters would get a hoot out of a government comprised 313 million citizens can't keep itself afloat or agree on anything. To sum it up... Earthlings go as Jedi for halloween, so why wouldn't Alderaanians go as the most comical people on earth for halloween.
I would get a giant bee hive costume...then I'd roll around as pond scum....I'd top it off with a comical size bag with a dollar sign on it and a black mask....I'd be a wretch hive of scum and villiany
Jedi Master Soon Bayts
I'd introduce myself as master Bayts.
(If you don't get the joke, say Master Bayts out loud)
I'd go as Phil, the alcoholic dudebro who totally scored with this slave chick at a Tatooine mixer, but later she tracked him down and told him she was knocked up, so I was like, "Yeah, Babe, that's totes cool. I got a sweet job lined up on Alderaan that I start next week and as soon as I got the money, I'll totes buy you from that blue flying fuck and marry you." And she believed me!
I would go as the Death Star, and tell any costume contest judge that he will share the fate of Alderaan if I do not win.
I suppose in the Star Wars universe, where everyone already wears outlandish clothes, the freakiest way to dress would be in a business suit, complete with fedora and pipe. And you could walk through Mos Eisley complaining about how the town has gone downhill ever since the newest alien species has moved in.
But personally, I'd like to try one of those two-person horse costumes, except it would be a bantha, and I'd be the ass end.
Darth Bane just so I could quote him all night when I am pranking people and they get mad. "Those who ask for mercy are too weak to deserve it."
I would cross-dress up as a person hated so hated by the God of the Star Wars universe that he tried to erase her very existence. Space Halloween could be no more terrifying than with the presence of Ackmena, the Mos Eisley bartender played by Bea Arthur in the Star Wars Holiday Special.
And the winner is eyelobot, for a pun that is also an easy costume:
Dyslexic Admiral Ackbar. This costume is easy -- IT'S A TARP!
Congrats to all winners and HMs.
