Get Your Geek On

Yesterday a friend and I went to check out the "Out of this World" exhibit at the MAC. As you might imagine, my inner nerd was very impressed. There were costumes from several movies (you can kind of see below) and notes on who wore them and what inspired the costume. Obviously the Darth Vader costume was the coolest. It was huge. "Vader" stands 6'6" and if you walk out into the next room there's a picture of Vader on the wall so that you can stand next to him and see how you measure up. I felt short. [Sadly, I didn't bring my camera.]

There was also a Batman suit, the Wicked Witch of the West's hat, Indiana Jones's leather jacket, whip, and the chalice used in the last crusade, along with various other Star Trek and Star Wars stuffs [technical word, that].

Totally worth the $7.

I decided to blog about my little excursion after being told that I "needed to blog" by Denise. Admittedly, I've been spending a ridiculous amount of time knitting and googling things to do with knitting lately. But I did finish my very first project (a chunky, blue scarf) and it's beautiful. I've been proudly toting it around with me, whipping it out to show anyone that will look at it. [I don't feel like messing with my camera at the moment so you don't get a picture.]
