Hello geeks ~
First of all, don't worry since this post doesn't contain any movie spoilers. :) This is just a (bit late) post about how fun it was to work at the cinema in town during the Star Wars movie's world premiere. Yes, if you didn't know then I am indeed a volunteer worker at the cinema and yes, it's hella awesome!
As a geeky person few things are better than getting to work in a place were I can combine my hobbies *coughcosplaycough* with the work itself! And hey, I even get to watch movies for free (if I work during said movie's showing, of course) so it's not like being a volunteer doesn't yield me anything in return – save for the always appreciated working experience. ;) Yay!
Okay soooo... as the geek I am I sewed a Jedi robe during a weekend and the rest of the outfit I threw together from stuff in my closet, including a vintage kimono for the outer robe. I dare say that it's not half-bad for a "closet Jedi", don't you think? It could be better but it could also be a looooooot crappier... :DD

There was also a young kid in a fur hat who walked up to me in a really confident, proud, over-the-top way and asked me with a sneaky grin and with eyes that shone of excitement – "are you a Jedi?". When I answered "yes" he did this childlike doubting squint with his eyes (still smiling), as if he was planning to check my authenticity, like one might do with Santa Claus. All in all it was way too cute, goddammit! x) He said "I have a question for you, I'll be back soon", winked to me and walked away with the same air of determination. He later came back and asked a question regarding Darth Maul and the movies and I mimiced his speech patterns, did a sort of bro/cool guy sign with my hand towards him and said "let me think about that one ;)", hahah. Too bad I didn't see him after that so I didn't get to answer...
I think that's about all that I have to say for this round ~
