"...a burning brand to your enemies, a brilliant fire to your friends."
A professional photographer approached my Rebel Legion Base looking for anyone willing to pose for pictures to add to his portfolio, so of course I volunteered.
I spent 6 hours in the attic of an old rundown closed night club in New Bedford dressed as a Jedi and then a Pirate for photos. Despite the 90 degree heat it was a lot of fun and some pretty cool photos were taken. This being one of them. ^_^

A front view of Reelu's costume. This took me about three months to pull together, and the costume still isn't quite finished. I still have a ton of beads to sew onto the material yet. Ugh. But! I've really enjoyed working this.
And thank God for Pam! Thank God for Pam! The latex lekku snugly attached to my head are her creation. She saved me from the cloth lekku monsters I'd been trying to make. You can check out here awesome creations here.
I really wish that I'd taken the time to braid my hair instead of using my Leia braid. I was just so exhausted from staying up all night, trooping earlier that morning, and then being in a 90 degree attic for the shoot.
