I’m sure the title of this post alone will get me all kinds of SPAM comments, but I’m willing to take the risk to get something off my chest.
Who in the hell thought this costume was a good idea?
This was an officially licensed product available from Star Wars Shop. That tells me that there was not only a product designer but also someone from Lucas Film that looked at this costume and said, “Yep – looks good. It’s approved.” Am I the only one that thinks this is a super inappropriate? I suppose there’s some market out there for folks that want to go to a costume party dressed as a dick, but I haven’t met them yet. Or maybe I’m just overreacting.
If you’re looking for a better option in the Star Wars universe (in my opinion) check out the Slave Leia costume… yowza. But in all honesty this costume has its issues too. If you look like the model feel free to wear this costume. But if you’re like me, you’re closer to ol Jabba here rather then the Leia model. Damn you Miller Lite… damn you to hell.
One final note on Halloween costumes. Is there anyone out there that would actually dress their child as a “Hobo”? Every costume shop we go to looking for kids costumes have all kinds of stuff sold out, but there’s always TONS of “Hobo” costumes left. And why not? I mean, who WOULDN’T want to dress their child as a homeless person? Come on folks, there’s just got to be some better ideas out there in costume land… no?
