star wars

Dad's birthday celebration continues. (He's really dragging out his February birthday, isn't he??) Saturday we took him, Mom, and Kevin to see an exhibit of 60+ Star Wars costumes from all 7 films. There was an interesting dichotomy between the simple, iconic costumes of the original movies and the elaborate gowns from the more recent films.

My favorite takeaway was the idea of "greeblies," which was George Lucas' term for the little bits and pieces attached to the outside of costumes to look like electronics, weapons, badges, etc. Definitely adding this word to my lexicon.

Afterwards we enjoyed a walk along the river and some tasty German food. Mae let Grandpa help color her Kinder Menu and then wolfed down some pretzel and hot dog. Such a fun day!
