10 Halloween Tips For The Star Wars Obsessed

‘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.

2. Set A Smaller Budget

Look, times are tough. I don’t see any reason why a blue RubberMade trash bin – new or used – wouldn’t pass muster as a legit R2D2 costume. Especially if it’s labelled… Then folks will really know. Have your friends or your mom put you on a dolly and wheel you up to the door. You’ll win the sympathy vote at the very least, though you may end up with a sack full of Bit’o’Honey and candy corn. (Side note: consider poking holes in costume for air ventilation and breathing purposes.)
