A New Hope


Russell (as Han Solo) and Vassar buddies in their Star Wars costumes

I had to post one last Halloween item, after we received this picture of Russell and fellow Vassar College scholars on their way to a costume party, dressed as characters from the Star Wars movies.

I like the Yoda, Luke, Leia, Han, and Chewbacca costumes, and the Darth Vader costume looks decent, if incomplete.  But  have I forgotten a Star War character that looked like a wolf in sunglasses?  (Perhaps it was glimpsed at the Mos Eisley cantina where  Obi Wan Kenobi lopped off the arm of an aggressive bar patron who was troubling Luke.)  And what’s with the Johnny Depp lookalike in the background, dressed like Father Guido Sarducci from the early days of Saturday Night Live?

All in all, though, a darned good effort.
