Princess Wawa and Obi-Mike
Mike and I lived out our Star Wars fantasies this Halloween by dressing as Princess Leia and Obi-Wan. Mike was Leia – just kidding. Actually, he nearly did have to crossdress when we discovered that his original costume, Chewbacca, was a child’s costume that even I could barely wriggle into. Thankfully, the Halloween Super Mega Store gods (devils?) showed us mercy and allowed us an exchange, although there were no adult Chewbacca costumes. On the plus side, being Obi-Wan meant that Mike got to accessorize with a lightsaber.
We wore our $100 worth of costumes for a total of three hours at a party on Saturday. We’ll be wearing them for the next five years to get our money’s worth. In fact, we’ll be donning our Jedi gear tonight to greet the trick-or-treaters.

May the force be with you and happy Halloween!
