Star Wars Identities

Hello Friends!

Before I get to this week’s post, let’s get some business out of the way.  I am pleased to announce that Chris Lackie – The Blog has entered the late 20th century.  We now have email!  You can reach the team of Chris Lackie – The Blog here:

Feel free to send us your kind words (keep your criticisms to yourselves, jerks), suggestions and questions.  If your question is hilarious or awesome enough I may even answer it right here!

Okay, now on to this week’s post!

A few weeks ago, my family and I went to the Star Wars Identities exhibit at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum right here in beautiful Ottawa, Ontario.  The exhibit was supposed to end this past weekend, but due to its overwhelming popularity, it has been extend through to Canadian Thanksgiving (that’s October 14th for everyone outside of the Great White North).  This week, to show you how awesome the exhibit is, I thought I would share a couple pictures I took during our visit.  But don’t think for a second that just because you saw a few pictures means you don’t need to go.  The whole thing is interactive, and you get to create your own Star Wars character with their own back story!  The characters my wife and I created are presented at the bottom of this post.

Note that flash photography isn’t allowed, so not all the pictures turned out great.  Don’t hate.  Here we go!

As I mentioned earlier, Star Wars Identities gives you the opportunity to create your own character.  Here are the characters my wife and I created.  I’ll let you guess who created who.

And all of that is just the tip of the iceberg.  If you have a chance, I highly recommend you make your way to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.  The Star Wars Identities exhibit is awesome in every way imaginable.

STAR WARS BAMPF!!
