To celebrate Star Wars day (and a birthday), we took the desperate fight between the valiant Rebel Alliance against the evil Empire into the centre of Nottingham. Aided by some awesome (and in some cases terrifying) costumes and no small amount of beverages, we startled and amused the townsfolk. The mock lightsabre battle descencded into a dance-off won by the very slick, if unexpected, bodypopping from a Jawa.
I think I liked the Jabba costume best. The ingenious onesie had a fan built into it, which inflated the costume thanks to the ties at the writsts, neck and ankles. The locals seemed to like him too, and he is sure to appear on lots of Facebook pages over the next few days.
