Star Wars Halloween Party 1977
2007 is the 30th Anniversary of the original Star Wars movie, so it is also the 30th Anniversary of the first Star Wars Halloween.

These pictures are from a 1977 Halloween party and dance at the University of Washington, Seattle USA. Back then there were no blogs or web sites for help in designing or making costumes, so we did everything from scratch. We were PoorStarvingCollegeStudents (that's one word) so that meant cheap materials and hours of loving labor.

I don't resemble any of the movie characters, so I got to wear the dome-top garbage can to play R2-D2.

P.S. These are scans of 30-year-old prints, so the picture quality is not up to the level of my other pictures on Flickr.

Enjoy the set!
