So I dream this dream at LEAST once a month. I’m in my room or something and suddenly I’m all “Hey, how did I forget that I have this authentic replica costume of Boba Fett/ General Kael/ Gizmoduck/ whatever in the back of my closet?”. I usually wake up before I have a chance to wear it somewhere cool, or use it to fight crime. The dreams where I have a working lightsaber are always the hardest to wake up from. *saaaadfaaaace*
I always dream I’ll build my own awesome props and costume for some Con sometime, but realistically, it’ll probably never happen. If you want to see someone who actually DOES build his own replica props that are without overstatement MIND-BLOWINGLY AWESOME, check out Harrison Krix’s blog where he photo-journals his creation processes. I was totally slack jawed and envious.
