What Halloween Costumes Say About You

Bonnie Burton | October 20, 2009

Before you decide to don that homemade sexy Ewok costume, or dress up as a Bacon Jedi (best of both worlds really), take a moment to think what kind of message you’re sending to friends, family, co-workers and strangers who see you walking across the street.

A.V. Club offers some insight on what your costume says about you.

Piling on enough costume and make-up to make yourself unrecognizable to your own parents, you’re free to act with social impunity. But as you’re strutting around wearing little more than underwear and angel wings, or rocking the look of a celebrity before the ink on his or her death certificate is even dry, remember that dressing up and acting out might betray more about your personality than your day-to-day behavior does.

Having your first child can often be seen as an opportunity to start reliving your youth, plus it is likely the first time you have a companion small enough to effectively wear a Yoda costume.

What you think it says about you: “Halloween was a magical part of our childhoods and we couldn’t wait to share it with our son or daughter.”

What it actually says: “Even though we are both only 24 years old, we are both getting used to spending this otherwise fun holiday changing a tiny Chewbacca’s diapers.”

Yoda Costume for Kids Craft

Bonnie Burton | October 15, 2009

Crafty gal and Star Wars fan Susan Beal made this awesomely adorable Yoda costume for her 18-month-old daughter Pearl, and was sweet enough to post all the instruction on how she did it in case others would like to make one for their younglings.

Susan Beal writes:

I used an Empire Strikes Back Yoda action figure for inspiration, and carried him around the fabric store to loosely match fabric colors to him and his outfit. The central piece, a simple brown robe, is altered from an adult T-shirt, and the other elements (a hat, snake, belt, and walking stick) are all quick sewing projects using basic templates.

More Cad Bane at Clone Wars Press Junket Team | September 24, 2009

When Cad Bane crashed The Clone Wars Season 2 Press Junket at Big Rock Ranch this week, he did it in a big way.

The Clone Wars blue-skinned bounty hunter posed for photos, interrupted international broadcasts, and made us all wonder if we could pull off dressing like him this Halloween.

Cad Bane wasn’t the only star of The Clone Wars Season 2 Press Junket at Big Rock Ranch. After all, the show is called The CLONE Wars.

Here’s a selection of our fave photos of the clone troopers in action as they mingle with the press, guard the entrance and play as themselves in games from LucasArts.

Lucasfilm’s Big Rock Ranch is hosting the Clone Wars Season Two press junket today, and the Star Wars galaxy’s new blue-skinned baddie Cad Bane dropped in for a few photo-ops with the press (that’s him posed with a few clones and Obi-Wan voice actor James Arnold Taylor above). We’re posting a few shots of the costume here for any ambitious costumers hoping to Bane it up for Halloween this year. Thanks to Jocelyn Knight for the photos!

We already know how Star Wars costumes have influenced designers from Project Runway, but this is the first time we’ve seen a celebrity show off a designer dress that would easily blend in at any formal party thrown at the Death Star.

Granted, we would never give actress Kristen Wiig a Grade D (like Yahoo did) for her fashion sense. We proudly give her an A for Awesome!
