‘Round about Halloween, several television stations will begin to run Star Wars movies ad nauseum clear through the end of the year — oh glory of glories, thanks be to TNT. Little X-Wing fighter pilots and young Anakin Skywalkers will knock on our doors in droves tomorrow night, because there’s something about All Hallows’ Eve that brings the kid and The Force out in all of us. And so, my dear fellow Empire enthusiasts and New Hope nerds, here’s a bit of sage advice if you want to Jedi-master Halloween.
1. Set A Budget
Nobody said you had to spend a lot of money on a cheap polyester costume at the Halloween City that sets up every year at that abandoned Kmart down the street. In the world of Star Wars nerd-dom, you’d be better off heading down to the tosche station to pick up some power converters, you know what I’m saying? Throw a green sleeping bag on those tree trunks you call legs and drool on some folks and everyone will know you’re Jabba the Hutt.
