So, I’ve been talking about how Victor, Hailey and I are having a contest to see who has the geekiest costume this year. You’ve seen me and Hailey, but today you get to see Victor wearing the costume he’s wanted since he was seven years old.
A storm trooper.
And as an added surprise I decided to change my costume at the last minute. Victor was not prepared.
Victor tried to contest that a ridiculous Darth Vadar dress was no match for a real storm trooper costume, but then I did the Force Grip.
In the end though, I suspect Victor wins this round. His costume is in like 25 pieces and putting him together is like a giant, annoyed, human jigsaw puzzle. Also, it’s no surprise that (spoiler alert) the Empire lost because it took two of us and 20 minutes of snapping, velcroing and screaming at each other just to get the damn costume on, and then when he was fully dressed I realized that he could barely move in it and that if I knocked him over he’d be like a helpless turtle on his back. In fact, he can’t even get undressed without me so I’m making him stay in costume until Hailey’s bus drives up because I think it would be awesome for her to have a storm trooper escort her from the bus. She might disagree, but I doubt it. She’s ours, after all.
Happy Halloween, y’all.
