Pretty and Not-so-pretty Things

Just doing a little housekeeping before going to lunch. First, last pictures from the Bull Run: the ethereal cirrus clouds yesterday morning. They looked as chill and sharp as the air around us.Lovely.And second: here's "Count Dooku" from the George Lucas "Star Wars the Clone Wars" series, a big fave of my little Peeper. He's an evil Dark Lord of the Sith, in case you're not familiar with the trope.And here's me. Now, tell me honestly: do you think I look like an evil Sith Lord?'Cause my kid does. And if I do, is that a bad thing?

I dunno Chief, I think it's the red in your eyes that gives you that aura of creepiness...of course, that's all because of the nature of the camera flash.
Still, throw a robe on, a cowl, and lightsaber and you'll have the gestures down to a T.

"do you think I look like an evil Sith Lord?"

Non-- you look very benevolent, m'lord.

Lisa: Only because I'm trying to seduce the lovely Jedi into the arms of Evil. We're cunning, us Sith Lords. And we bring you flowers.

Lisa said...

If there are flowers, I may go willingly.

FDChief said...

You see how cunning we are...

I don't understand...I have a sudden compulsion to obey!?!

You should have seen what happened when my husband innocently put on an Obama mask that his nephew gave him at Christmas. The munchkin went ballistic. I thought she was going to bust an artery. Took me about 20 minutes to calm her down.
We don't do costumes around here anymore, needless to say.

WD: Yike! Poor little one - was she afraid of the "stranger" or did she think that "he" had done something to Daddy?

Good call on the masks, tho...
