The fandom minute: The internet loves costume contests, slave Leia, and the concept of a Jabba sitcom

pondaRebelscum contest winners. The fansite announced the winners of their annual Halloween costume contest yesterday – this (Robot Chicken-inspired?) Ponda Baba by Michael took first place in the adult contest.

Sing it. Are you sick of seeing that old pic of Carrie Fisher and her ROTJ stunt double being treated as some sort of rare, leaked revelation? Yeah, me too.

According to Jabba? The King of Tatooine? io9′s Annalee Newitz mines Bonnie’s interview with the The Box director Richard Kelly for his idea of a Jabba the Hutt tv show. Scary thought: It’s not really out of the realm of possibility.

Blotter. A New Zealand fan had his stormtrooper armor stolen off his back porch before he had a chance to wear it. At least the perpetrators were caught on camera?

Craft corner: Stormtrooper outfits and playworthy lightsabers out of easy-to-find materials. Or… an AT-AT dog costume, because tiny little dogs just have too much innate dignity.

    I gotta say that I think the kids’ costumes were better than the adults.

    Of course, it’s not as if I did all that much for my costume, this year.
