It's been awhile since I've visited with some old friends so we all got together for a reunion. Take a peek at just a few of my buddies who turned up!
|My old study partner: C3PO|
|Sorority President: Leah|
|Party Animal: Jabba|
|My old mentor: Yoda|
|My good buddy: Chewbacca|
Last but certainly not least...
|The ex: Darth|
There were real costumes, props, and original George Lucas concept drawings. At the beginning we were each given these bracelets,
and as we walked through the exhibit we swiped them, answered questions, and in the end, depending on our choices were were presented with our very own character from the Star Wars universe!!!!!
Here I am:
And here's my story:
I was raised on the forest planet Kashyyyk, where members of my community made their living in tree house real estate. On holidays my friends and I would traditionally go for a long peaceful walk through the forest.
My parents raised me with a mix of independence and support, and I inherited my strong set of creative abilities from them. Later on I spent some time with Yoda, the greatest of all the Jedi, whose guidance left me with knowledge I still use every day in my job as a senator.
I remember this one time when I was captured by a crime lord and chained to his belly. I didn't let this affect me too much, though; instead I used my chains to throttle the crime lord to death and escaped.
People often tell me I’m a generally altruistic and accommodating person, I also tend to be organised and prepared. But the most important thing to me is achievement: I believe that excellence deserves recognition and respect.
The Force is very strong with me, so I wasn't surprised when the Emperor tracked me down. When he offered me limitless power in exchange for my allegiance, I fought the urge to join him and his evil minions and rejected his offer.
You can find out more about the exhibit here. Unfortunately (for everyone else), this was only one of two stops in North America. The good news is that it'll be there until April 2013, so you have lots of time to come on over to Canada for a visit.
May the Force be with you!
